Sherlock & Doctor Who Win Awards

Are we surprised?  Well, not really, although there were some tremendous performances nominated for each category of the National Television Awards. Best TV Detective went to Benedict Cumberbatch for Sherlock, but he was up against some incredible competition.  Performances by Idris Elba in Luther (an amazing show), David Tennant and Olivia Coleman in Broadchurch (again…amazing), Suranne Jones in Scott & Bailey and Bradley Walsh in Law and Order UK were among the nominees.

Of course, if you give Benedict a camera…goofiness ensues.

The award for Best Drama went to Doctor Who because…well, it is amazing, even up against nominees such as Broadchurch and Downton Abbey.  Matt Smith also took home the award for Most Popular Drama Performance…well, took home…he didn’t actually get to attend the awards show either.  He’s in the middle of American Psycho (the play, silly people, the play!), but he did send an acceptance via video.  You can watch that here.

Doctor Who Timelines, Because…It’s Friday

1526658_798416653505697_1395285752_n

So, it’s Friday.  How’s that going for you?  Need a little distraction?  I’m great at distractions.  Check out these interactive Time Lord Timelines.  They came across my feed from the BBC.

Now, My Friday is actually kind of busy, so I haven’t actually gotten to play around with this yet.  What I’m trying to say here is, if you’ve got some time to check out what looks like a very cool site, please do!  Let me know if it is cool.  It seems pretty cool.

‘Til next time,

Eleven’s Hour Is At An End

tardismug

The Doctor’s influence is everywhere.  Have you discovered this?  I’m running into fans all over the place!

Last week my dishwasher sprung a leak.  I know, really fun stuff.  The guys that came in to dry out the flooding were pretty cool.  One of them commented that I had the best coffee mug ever.  I didn’t even have to peek around the corner to know which mug had caught his eye.  It was the disappearing TARDIS mug I got for my birthday.  Like I said, Doctor Who fans are everywhere.  For 20 minutes we discussed the show, Peter Capaldi, and the 50th anniversary episode that he hadn’t seen.  (Don’t worry, no spoilers.)  The only spoiler-y bit I disclosed was that an older Doctor in Peter Capaldi makes perfect sense after seeing The Day of the Doctor.  I know it was a little cruel to whet his appetite with that tidbit, but…how could I resist?  We finally had to explain what we were talking about to the other gentleman working with him.

In the airport’s Starbucks, my barista had a “Police Call Box” lanyard around her neck. Again, speculation about the Christmas episode swirled through the air along with the sounds from the espresso machine.  Our conversation did more to wake me up for the flight and meetings ahead than the caffeine in my chai latte.

During my Random Acts of Kindness last month, I gave “awesome” cards to everyone I came across in Doctor Who apparel.  There were more than a couple out and about.  It is like belonging to a not -so-secret club or something.  Every time you hear the whooshing groan of the TARDIS, you look around, just in case a blue police box really does show up somewhere, and if anyone else’s head pops up at the unique sound, you can’t help but share a smile.

There is a new Doctor Who Christmas special trailer for The Time of the Doctor.  Matt Smith is facing all of those villains? It took me a while to warm up to the 11th Doctor, but now I am not ready to see him go.  Don’t get me wrong, I think Peter Capaldi will be amazing, but Eleven stormed his way into fans’ hearts.  Of course, Steven Moffat is an expert at tugging on those same heartstrings, so I expect a thrilling, emotional roller coaster for Christmas from him.  This trailer is all the confirmation necessary for me to stock up on tissues, straighten my metaphorical bow tie, and make sure the shock blanket will be freshly laundered for the occasion. Oh it makes me giddy…and fills me with dread…so, here it is.

What do you think about the trailer?  Have you run into fellow Whovians in unexpected places?

#SherlockLives, It’s Christmas!

Thanksgiving has officially ended.  Now I am perfectly prepared to begin looking toward Christmas…bring on the carols, decorations, shopping mall Santas, and, of course, the BBC Christmas lineup. (Okay, so maybe not the shopping mall Santas.  They can be a little creepy.)  This year, other than the usual festivities, there are a couple of long awaited television episodes airing.

The BBC finally announced last week that Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, will return over the Christmas holiday.  January 1, 2014 to be exact.  (So, I don’t get to yell “It’s Christmas!” Well, I do but it will be New Year’s…right, stopping now.)  Are you as excited as I am?  That’s definitely one way to ring in the new year.  I would say it comes close to Sherlock’s elation over a locked room murder!  A new trailer preceded the announcement by the BBC.  It features….the mustache.

Okay, so the mustache isn’t the only thing in the trailer, but it does make a rather impressive appearance, as does a bearded Anderson.  (It took me a while to figure out who was sporting all the facial hair.) Finally, the reunion fans have been looking forward to since a tragic John Watson stood at his best friend’s grave!  Sherlockians have waited a very long time to see the affect the reemergence of the world’s only consulting detective would have on the army doctor who watched him fall.  I’m looking forward to the reunion more than I am the answers Moftiss promised us. Don’t get me wrong…I’ve developed/read a few dozen theories on how Sherlock survives.  (The internet can be a black hole sometimes.)  The reunion is what fascinates me though.  How mad is John really going to be?  How soon will Sherlock be forgiven?  What’s with the ‘stash?!?

 

The trailer also features #SherlockLives.  After Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary broke 400,000 Tweets with #SaveTheDay, #DoctorWho, #TheDayoftheDoctor, etc.,  Radio Times  announced that it had taken over their top spot, previously held by the Broadchurch season finale with 260,709 tweets.  Can #SherlockLives bring in equally impressive numbers? The new trailer aired just after The Day of the Doctor, 50th Anniversary episode, and Sherlockians immediately took to social media.  #SherlockLives was trending.

The Sherlock trailer wasn’t the only thing sending WhoLock fans into the stratosphere.  The teaser for the Christmas episode of Doctor Who, The Time of the Doctor, also gave us a glimpse of things to come.

Have you ever seen so many villains in one trailer?  The Day of the Doctor wasn’t quite the emotional ringer I feared.  Apparently they’re saving that for the Whovian’s Christmas present when the Doctor regenerates.  Well, it is Christmas at the BBC…and although this will be my first experience with the holiday season with the network, I have heard stories.  Lots of stories, sometimes accompanied by tears.  Break out the tissues and your shock blanket.  I have a feeling we’re going to need them before all is said and done.

Laters,

Jessica


TARDIS, Dalek, Stars, and…Presents: Happy 50th Anniversary and Birthday Party!

IMG_0628 (1)Hello Sweeties!  Well, I’ve done it!  I’ve thrown my first Doctor Who party.  When I was planning, I worried about it feeling like a 10 year old’s party…with adult beverages.  One of these days, I’ll learn not to worry so much.  It didn’t feel childish at all…I left off the coloring pages and props…maybe that made a difference?  All in all, if there weren’t an abundance of Doctor Who references from everything the food to “props”, it would have just been a lovely…blue and silver party…with stars.  

For this party, just blue and silver wouldn’t cut it.  This is the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who for crying out loud!  It was also my birthday party, so there was no halfway.  The TARDIS made an appearance…or three, and a Dalek tried to “Exterminate!” the bread. My friends and family definitely Exterminated all the food.  (One day I will remember that there are never leftovers, but there is always enough.)  I should just stop stressing out about it.  

If you’re thinking of your own Doctor Who themed party, I’ve included recipes or links for the food, directions or links on how to make the decorations, and…anything else I can think of.  For those few people attending who were not Whovians, I made sure that everything had a little sign to indicate how it related to the show.  I mean otherwise, it is just a lasagna with a face!  I used Pinterest a lot to get ideas several months ago, but, when it came down to it, I didn’t do anything the exact way the directions suggested.  If you want to see some other ideas, check out my Theme Parties board.

20131123_172836Lost Moon of Poosh (a moon made of cheese!) I just bought a tasty cheese ball and some crackers.

Bow Ties are Cool Pasta

Chop at least 4 garlic cloves and brown in a little olive oil, 1 package cherry or grape tomatoes into the pan with the garlic and cooked until the tomatoes release their juices (I usually cut 1/3 or so of the tomatoes in half to help this), top with fresh basil and fresh mozzarella pearls.  Pour this light tomato sauce over al dente pasta. (Bow Ties in this case)

 

Moisturize Me Lasagna

IMG_5225 (1)

Brown 1lb lean ground beef & mix with favorite marinara (I have a good recipe, but I used store-bought because of time issues.)  Spread a bit of sauce in the bottom of the baking dish to prevent sticking and layer lasagna noodles on top. (I use oven ready noodles because of time, and they are so much easier than traditional noodles!)  Top noodles with meat sauce and layer a few good spoonfuls of good ricotta cheese on top of that.  Repeat noodles, sauce, ricotta until you reach the top of the dish.  Then top with sauce and shredded mozzarella. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.  To make Cassandra’s face, slice a radish, top the radish with sliced black olives, and cut lips out of a red bell pepper. (Please put Cassandra’s face on after cooking…otherwise it isn’t pretty.)

Celery is for Wearing, Not Eating Salad

20131123_172857This is just a bagged salad with sliced celery (tops with leaves just…somewhere), red pepper, radishes, tomatoes, and black olives (left over from Cassandra’s face)

Dalek Garlic Bread

windupdalek

 Just garlic bread with a Dalek wind-up toy next to it…to “Exterminate!” the bread.  I’m sure I could have made it look like a Dalek, but…time.  

 

 

Sonic Screwdrivers 9th, 10th & 11th Doctors

IMG_2042The blue sonic screwdrivers were by and large the most popular of the evening.  Very tasty, and the citrus soda made them “sparkle”.

9th and 10th Doctors’ Sonic Screwdriver

1 shot vanilla vodka (I actually used Pearl’s Wedding Cake Vodka…because it is so very very tasty!)

1 shot blue curacao

citrus soda (something clear like 7-up, Sprite, or Sierra Mist is better)

(9th & 10th Doctors) were a huge hit.  

11th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver

2 shots blue raspberry vodka

Orange Juice

A slice of lime

The 11th Doctor’s green sonic screwdriver was very tasty also, but it didn’t have as many takers.  I think that a splash of citrus soda would be great here too.  You know…sparkly.  

Still Not Ginger, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship Cookies (with edible ball bearings)

 

IMG_5225 (1)Otherwise known as how many Doctor Who things can I fit into one dish!  I love this sugar cookie and icing recipe!  It is pretty much the best one I’ve come across.  Perfect for using cookie cutters too, and the icing makes the cookies stackable without getting too hard. (Why did no one take a picture of my lovely cookies?  Oh right, they were too busy eating them!)  A triceratops cookie cutter and gray sugar pearls made this…perfect.

TARDIS Cake!

IMG_1364

Huge thank you to my friend for the birthday cake.  It is wonderful!  My favorite is yellow cake with Chocolate Frosting, and that is just what I received!  She drew a much better icing TARDIS than I would have been able to.

IMG_6940 (1)

Adipose Marshmallows  (used as drink stirrers)

These are super easy.  Jumbo marshmallow, and you can attach the regular size ‘mallows either with icing as glue or with toothpicks (1.  Cut the toothpicks in half, it works better. 2. Warn people there are toothpicks….I know, but the last thing you want is for someone to swallow half a toothpick.)  The faces were drawn on with black gel icing.  I used a toothpick to get a fine enough line.

TARDISmug

There were bunches of other items pertaining to the life of  The Doctor strewn about.   I got a TARDIS mug for my birthday that made an appearance along with an astronaut stress toy and a high-heeled shoe.  Can you tell I like River Song?

What did we do?

Doctor Who…stuff was playing in the background for…everything.  The week leading up to the party BBC America had a schedule full of Doctor Who specials, and I made sure they were all DVR’d and queued up for the party.  Since there was a marathon on, we just ended up watching that.  So, The End of Time Part 2 led us into the broadcast at 7:00pm CST.  Yes, we had emotional trauma for fans just before the big event.

 

 

IMG_6331 There was the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who edition of Monopoly available for playing, but, as usual, we were too busy talking and laughing to pull out the games! We saved that for the guests who stayed the night.  Coffee and being thrashed at Doctor Who Monopoly…always a great way to begin the day!  I have to give serious kudos to the winner.  There were no hotels left to purchase…he bought them all.  An unlucky trip around the board was going to cost you at least $4,000 Monopoly money.  I would earn just enough income to pay rent after I mortgaged…everything.  Then I’d pay off the mortgage and earn enough income to pay rent the next time I landed on….anything!

Decorations turned out great!  There was banner hanging from the mantle that said “Hello Sweetie”.  I just used TARDIS blue card stock to give the printed letters some substance.  IMG_5373A star mobile that hung from the light fixture above the dining table.  3 Chic Geeks gave me the idea, but I had to go and add glitter and stars of different sizes.  It was lots of fun, but I will never get all the glitter out of my…entire house.  The “Bad Wolf” graffiti was a big hit too.  My wonderfully evil self really wanted to print a poster sized weeping angel to hang behind the door in the bathroom…because it is scary!  However, I refrained…or I ran out of time…whichever…maybe next time.  All the tableware was blue and silver and the table and book case were scattered with silver star confetti.  I also couldn’t resist some star garland on a wire to weave about…anyplace flat.

A couple of people asked me what I was going to do with all the decorations I made.  Well, I’m keeping them, of course!  I received a Whovian Cookbook for my birthday….oh, I think I see more Doctor Who parties in my future.

20131124_045850

I watched The Day of the Doctor during the simulcast that afternoon.  

1) I know me.  There was no way that I would be able to sit still and not be checking on my guests constantly while the show was one.  However, I wasn’t missing a second of it either!  

2) I couldn’t wait that long!  

Since I cannot travel in time, my DVR worked just fine for this lovely occasion.  It also helped that BBC America rebroadcast it in the evening.  My guests ended up not needing much attention during the show, they were a bit occupied with what happened on-screen.  This did give me a chance to watch for all the little tidbits the creators like to throw in there for our viewing pleasure.  The hardest part was keeping my mouth shut. (Always a challenge!)  No spoilers!

All in all it was a pretty laid back kind of evening (with decorations).  Once again, I have to give huge kudos to my friends who are “Fantastic” all on their own.  There was virtually no clean up for me,  they jumped in with a “Geronimo” and had most of the work done for me.  All I had left to do was slip into my TARDIS pajamas and head off to dream of the next theme party I can concoct….Sherlock anyone?

Allons-y!

Doctor Who Takes Over BBC America’s Schedule This Week…5 Days!

5days

Doctor Who takes over BBC America this week as we lead up to the 50th Anniversary episode, The Day of the Doctor.  Between specials on previous incarnations of the Doctor, specials on the Doctor’s companions, a made for TV movie and marathons of previous episodes, you can watch to your Whovian heart’s content.  When does all this happen, you ask?

Fortunately, they posted all the fun stuff online, so you don’t have to miss out.  Of course, I’m going to be gone almost every evening this week.  I can’t miss out on all the preshow stuff!  Thank goodness for DVR…otherwise I’d always miss out on the good stuff on television because of…life.

Don’t forget to check out the prequel mini-episode for The Day of the Doctor, here!  Oh my, they are such teases.  On the plus side it is only 5 days until the 50th!

Does it seem like I Love Geekology 101 has been taken over by the Doctor?  Well, yeah probably.  However, with the themed birthday party/ 50th Anniversary party happening at my house on Saturday, it sometimes feels like all my free time is taken with looking at, making, or thinking about something Doctor Who related.  I promise it will not last forever!

‘Til next time,

Jessica


What, Why and…Doctor Who

images (24)Oh holy cow! I can’t believe I only discovered Doctor Who less than a year ago.  It seems as if it has been part of my life forever!  My mission, and I have definitely chosen to accept it, is to convert as many people to Whovianism as possible. Now, I promise no spoilers here.  Since I have promised no spoilers, I’m going to give general information here for non-Whovians, and I’m going to try to do it as logically as possible. (Whovians, stop laughing. Come on, really. Stop laughing!)

First, what is a Whovian?  Well, it is a fan of the British television show Doctor Who, of course.  We even get our own Urban Dictionary entry.  According to Wikipedia, it is a term that became common in the United States during the 1980’s when the Doctor Who Fan Club of America published their newsletter titled Whovian Times.  (You learn something new everyday!)  The fan club is no longer active these days though.

1383715_661960093837624_158818129_nSo what exactly is Doctor Who? To begin, Doctor Who is the longest running science fiction television show of all time. This year it will celebrate its 50th Anniversary with a much-anticipated special that will air November 23, 2013.  Here is your own invitation to join the celebration.  The show originally aired on November 23, 1963…nice symmetry there huh? I made a comment earlier about Whovian’s laughing at me when I tried to apply logic to Doctor Who. It is not an easy show to explain logically. I’ve tried…a lot. I usually end up sounding like I’m mentally unstable. The plot is full of twists and turns throughout all of time and space. Doctor Who is rarely boring.

The show began in 1963 and ran through 1989 before taking a lengthy hiatus and returning in 2005 when Russell T. Davies revived the show as the head writer and Christopher Eccelston took on the role of The Doctor. The period before the hiatus is typically referred to as Classic Who and everything after 2005 is the New Who. As a disclaimer, I do have to admit that I haven’t seen much Classic Who (I’m working my way through them all) but I have seen all of the New Who episodes.   What do you do with a show with such a lengthy run that has the same main character?  Well, there have been 11 actors who have played the Doctor over the years.

Christopher Eccleston & Billie Piper

Now how, you ask, have the fans rolled with those punches? See the Doctor doesn’t die, necessarily, he regenerates. William Hartnell got the party started and this year we will see the 11th Doctor, Matt Smith regenerate in the Christmas Special. In all his regenerations the Doctor is old and young; serious and sassy; wise and irreverent; trustworthy and a liar; in control and flying by the seat of his pants. There’s typically a sense of the ridiculous and fun about him, but he is not someone to cross because his wrath is ferocious.  Underneath all his many faces he is always the same man, and this point has been reiterated by the current head writer and general fan torturer, Steven Moffat, as recently as the 2013 San Diego Comic Con

images (30)

David Tennant

I have a recommended watch list for people who I indoctrinate addict encourage to join our little fandom.  Usually, I start them out with Blink an episode from the 10th Doctor (David Tennant’s) era that is exciting, a little scary, and it doesn’t require any previous knowledge of the show to be enjoyable.  Then I take them back to Rose which is the episode from the 9th Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) that rejuvenated the series, and then move through the “New Who” episodes from there.

There have been varying responses to fans hearing about my methods that have ranged from “you are brilliant!” (my favorite) to “are you crazy?” (possibly accurate, but not my favorite).  What are your thoughts?  I am open to suggestions.  So far, I’ve only lost one person (however, since she was playing CandyCrush on her phone the whole time…you know who you are!)  Well, my Dad fell asleep by the time Sally found the peeling wallpaper, but he wanted my Mom to give him a recap in the car…of everything. (Bonus, this time she got to sound like the crazy person, not me!)  Everyone else is hooked.  I had to reassure my nephew a couple of weeks ago that he did get BBC America at his house, and I promised to text him when each new episode came on.

Don’t let the rather cheesy special effects turn you off in the early episodes of the 9th Doctor’s tenure. The characters, story line, and acting more than make up for the less than stellar effects. It took me two maybe three episodes before I was completely hooked. I watched every episode from 2005-March of 2013 in like two and a half months…it is addicting. Now, I was also motivated to be caught up on the story line before the new episodes aired in March.

Matt Smith

They say you never forget your first Doctor, which would be Christopher Eccleston for me, with his leather jacket and sarcastic sassiness were the perfect introduction for me. (Sarcastic? Who me? Say it ain’t so!) David Tennant follows, and I was a little worried for like an episode before I got behind the change in the Doctor. I loved his enthusiasm and exuberance that covered up.  The latest regeneration in Matt Smith, took me a little more time, but I’ve come to love him as well. He’s announced he is leaving the show, so we will see the 11th Doctor regenerate in the Christmas Special.  Recently, they announced that Peter Capaldi will be coming on board as the 12th Doctor in the series.

1383958_213669722145518_1000217485_n

Peter Capaldi

Since the announcement of Peter Capaldi’s casting as the 12th Doctor, people have asked me what I think. Only natural, it isn’t as if I keep my enjoyment of the show a secret. (Stop laughing, friends and family. Really, it could have happened!) With the direction Matt Smith’s Doctor took toward the end, I think someone a bit older is warranted. The Doctor feels older now with the weight of circumstances and events weighing on him. When the 10th Doctor, David Tennant, regenerated there was an almost childlike desire to stay as he was. His last words “I don’t want to go” reflect that. His end set the tone for, Matt Smith’s Doctor. Younger on the outside, but it disguises the same man who regenerated alone. The 9th Doctor, Eccleston, we meet as a man who is bearing the weight of the events of the Time War. He is the last of his kind, alone, and he believes that is the price he must pay for everything he’s done. At his regeneration, he’s healed a bit from that. He’s with Rose Tyler and at the end you see his dawning realization that he’s “fantastic” too. The exuberance in 9’s final moments is directly reflected in David Tennant’s Doctor. Enthusiastic, effervescent, and happy to be out there saving the universe again. I can’t wait to see what happens with Peter Capaldi’s Doctor. As Steven Moffat has reiterated recently. He is always the same man underneath the different exteriors.

timthumb (23)Whovians have been known to loudly curse the name of Steven Moffat who took over as head writer when Russell T. Davies left. He is credited with the creation of some of the most frightening villains since the Daleks and the Cybermen arrived on the scene…Weeping Angles, Vashta Neruda, and the Silence have made people the world over afraid to blink, afraid of the dark, and … what was I saying?  He’s also credited with the emotional trauma of Doctor Who fans the world over. The Angels Take Manhattan anyone? (Don’t get me started on the emotional trauma caused by Moffat, Gatiss and Thompson in the BBC’s Sherlock. That is another post in and of itself.)

On the surface Doctor Who an alien who travels through all of time and space with a series of companion in a police phone box from the 60’s….that’s bigger on the inside….do you see the problem now? Really, that’s not what Doctor Who is all about though, those are just plot points, and while it is important it doesn’t explain why this show has held a fascination for viewers for 50 years. For all of us who are avid viewers and Whovians, hopefully it never ends!

images (15)So, if Doctor Who isn’t actually about a “madman in a blue box” what is it about? It’s about courage and friendship. The friendships and trust inherent in the relationship between the Doctor and his companions is just …it’s great. Life and death, guilt and forgiveness play a huge role in the newer episodes as well. Anyone who has lived as long as the Doctor, has seen more than his share of individuals pass in and out of his life…not all relationships end well, now do they. When you’re 900+ years old, you’ve made some mistakes as well, and learning how to forgive others and especially to forgive yourself. This show is about being human….sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less. It is about realizing how small we really are in the grand scheme of things, and knowing that we will never have all the answers…no matter how clever we are. Doctor Who is about learning to see yourself clearly, and realizing that you are more than you realize. You’re brilliant. Shopgirl, med student, temp, impossible girl…there are no unimportant people and although, one moment you may be the most important person in the universe, the next you’re just a cog in the wheel. Knowing which to choose each moment is the important part. What you think is cool…is cool, at least for you, whether it is a bow tie or a fez…not everyone will agree with you, and that’s okay. Whether you yell Geronimo at the top of your lungs or whisper it as you take that leap, it’s about having the courage to do the right thing when everyone else is running away. Sometimes love conquers all…and sometimes…

Doctor Who has taught me one of the most important lessons of life (Pinterest):

Sometimes you fail, sometimes you screw up, and sometimes you try your very hardest, do your very best, and it still isn’t enough. And at those times, you just have to pick yourself up, adjust your bow tie, re-tie your shoelaces, dust off your jacket, loosen your cravat, shoulder your umbrella, polish your cat pin, straighten your celery, wrap your scarf a little tighter, throw your opera cape, pocket your recorder, grab your jacket labels, and

images (29)Now, typically, I am not an emotional person when it comes to movies or television shows. I didn’t shed a tear during The Notebook. Titanic didn’t make me misty eyed (Come on, everybody knew how it was going to end!). As a matter of fact, I can only count a couple of movies that get to me Ol’ Yeller, and Steel Magnolias are two of them. Let me tell you, that Doctor Who will get you though…repeatedly and frequently. There are still scenes that only have to be mentioned and I can feel the moisture gathering behind my eyes. It kills me, and I never saw it coming. It was supposed to be a show about a time traveling alien, for crying out loud. Now, ask me if I would change it….

‘Allons-y!

Doctor Who – The Day of the Doctor

Doctor Who - The Day of the Doctor

John Hurt in a new Day of The Doctor poster.  I can’t wait!


Doctor Who Trailer for The Day of the Doctor…Oh My!

I would be lying if I said the countdown hasn’t already begun.  All over the world, fans have been counting down to the 50th Anniversary episode of Doctor Who, The Day of the Doctor.  It is no different in my home.  As a matter of fact, the timing works out so that I am hosting a watch party/birthday party for myself that evening. (No one says that grown ups can’t have themed birthday parties…most people don’t actually accuse me of being a grown up either.)  Here’s the teaser the BBC has given us for this episode….

47 days and counting…
