i am going to fly my nerd flag here and confess that i have been neck deep in Doctor Who. why i haven't ever watched this show is lost on me as i am a lover of sci-fi (x-files being my all-time favorite show). i think that i was hesitant because i don't have the greatest track record of loving british television. in fact i can't really think of any show that is british that i've enjoyed long term. the show is the longest running sci-fi show in history but i only started watching it from the 2005 season onward, where christopher eccleston is Doctor Who. some of the effects are cheesy. cheesy to the point where i almost gave up in season one in fact. i loved christopher eccleston - he had an almost johnny depp like quirkiness about him as the doctor. but then the roles was changed to include david tennant (who played barty crouch jr. in HP and the prisoner of azkaban). i was skeptical of this transition but now i am in love. so in love with the show that i totally started doing the ugly cry at the conclusion of season two. yeah. i am that person crying over sci-fi.
