Doctor Who: The [New] Doctor is in

13thDoctor

   This new Doctor will give us some fresh stories, guaranteed. I, for one [of many], can’t wait to see the new Doctor in action.

   I’ve said this before, and fans of Doctor Who will agree; this program has taught me to accept change. You have no choice. You accept the change or you no longer have the Doctor in your life. Sure you can rewatch the entire breadth of the DW library, while that is enjoyable and it definitely a thing that I do regularly, I also love fresh takes on the character and new stories.

Love it [like me] or hate it [a waste of time and energy], this is our new Doctor. 👉 BBC’s 13th Doctor Reveal Video

Classic DOCTOR WHO Library Comes to Streaming

504x_tom-baker1

   It’s a rough time to be a Doctor Who fan. Having only two new Christmas specials to tide us over between November 2015 and April 2017 is certainly trying, but the fact that the classic series aren’t available to stream is even more frustrating. I own all the DVDs, sure, but it’s hard to recommend new fans to get into the older stuff when the discs are out of print and there’s nowhere to legally watch it. That’s changes now with the announcement that BBC Worldwide and ITV’s joint global subscription service BritBox will be the home to the largest Classic Who collection ever. Launching Tuesday, April 4, BritBox will offer 550 episodes of existing classic Doctor Who stories, spanning from 1963 to 1989 and covering the first seven Doctors. As there are currently 597 extant episodes, BritBox will launch with the majority. And soon, the audio of the 97 “lost” episodes (i.e. the ones that are missing from the BBC archives) will be available as well, so even if you can’t see some of the older

Going Back in Time in order to Catch Up

hornets_nest_stuff_of_nightmares

  Earlier today I delved back into some old audio adventures, beginning with Hornet’s Nest. Back in 2009, the BBC released some new Doctor Who adventures starring Tom Baker. They were, and still are, amazing! Age had not dulled Tom’s portrayal of the age old Time Lord one bit. I began to relisten to these because I am planning on purchasing more of these types from the good people at Big Finish Productions. I’ve already purchased a few, years ago. Their quality is on par with that of the BBC releases, perhaps even better, and they have a vast library of shows to choose from.

Rebuilding My Collection / Mid-life Regression?

   So here I am 45, as of the 3rd of May 2015, and I am just on the cusp of becoming gainfully employed again. It’s been a while since I had a regular job, but the contract stuff and selling online is just getting us by. Once I re-enter the 9-5 world, after 20 years, I plan on replacing/upgrading many things (car, appliances, computers) and rebuilding the collecting that had dwindled over the years. Presented here is what we have left, that isn’t up for sale. Some is my wife’s, others are mine, and some we’ve collected together. The best thing about collecting again is that, if needed, I can always flip my stuff for more than I paid and start over again.

   If you want to see what I would like to add to my collection, so far, then check out my collection list on eBay: My 45 Year Wish List! Misty’s will be building her list soon.

Doctor Zen and Now

Zen Question by @Jedi_Knut

   So the BBC live event is happening and the big reveal is…

Being an American, I am not sure what to expect from this actor but I am sure it will be very entertaining. If nothing else Doctor Who has taught geeks all over the world a very important Buddhist concept. That is to not be attached to things. This time I am in full Zen detachment mode and ready for the next chapter.

Who can it be Now?

   Who will be the next Doctor Who? I have no idea but the BBC does and they will air a special this Sunday, August the 4th, to reveal the next new Who! This will be a live event and the local BBC time will be 7PM, check your local listings for the time in your area.
