If I had to choose a perfect distraction for the night before the last long run of my marathon training, the new series of Doctor Who would be it.
At this point what I should do is explain to the three people left in the universe who don’t watch Doctor Who why I love it so, but I’m still inarticulate with squee.
‘You’re Scottish, fry something’ – favourite Doctor Who line ever.
Matt Smith was exceptional as the Doctor, bringing hints of all ten previous incarnations and the impression of an old soul in a young body. Steven Moffat said their plans for the eleventh doctor were turned upside down when they saw him audition, and I can see why.
He was better than David Tennant.
He was alien, human, ugly, handsome – all at the same time.
I’m off for a run with my sister, who isn’t a nerd like me.
