Hmm. It appears Doctor Who fandom has broken my friends page. Vocal lot.

Slightly belated Happy Holidays to you all, and I hope everyone had a great New Years! I bring evidence of our own celebrations - yes, we could have fought the crowds to the fireworks, but this was more fun.

Over the past few weeks I've read a great many books, watched a lot of TV shows (and is anyone else watching Leverage? If not, you should be), and above all, done far too much travelling. But it's back to the grindstone tomorrow, I guess. *sigh*

I feel a bit inadequate with my new Doctor response, like I should be jumping up and down and writing capslock anon posts or something. :p

So depressing that it's back to work tomorrow. *sigh*

We are bad, bad fangirls :P But really, while it would have been cool if 11 had been a girl, or non-Caucasian, since I haven't got a clue who this guy is, how well he can act, or how they intend to write him, I think I'll wait a while before I break out the tar and feathers.

It is a bit disappointing that they didn't do something different. You wonder how much concern over whether doing something new would affect ratings might have ruled their decision, but perhaps that's just me being cynical. I find it kind of amusing that a few people are horrified that he's not pretty enough to be the Doctor, because I didn't think that past incarnations were famed for that, really. :p

In that case, I must be cynical too. And exactly! Apart from Ten, none of the others were really conventionally 'pretty' - certainly some of them were damn attractive, but not because of their adonis-like looks. (I go back and forth on Five as conventionally attractive - he's my favourite 'old' doctor, but I'm never sure if I think he's exactly *hot* or not.)

The comments I really liked were the ones complaining about lack of eyebrows. 'Cause if that's all you have to complain about, you ain't doing too badly, in my book!

Thanks! We had to have a few tries to get it right - in the first, one of the sparklers went out, and in the second, the nine was back to front - but when we got one that worked, it was worth it!

You know my backwards 9 gave the slogan CHARACTER! :D

Good to see you back on lj, I'm trying to catch up on everyone's posts!

Well, that's one way of looking at it :P

Yup, I'm being good and updating and everything. Hopefully it will last.
