The Clock Struck Twelve

“You’re late.”

“A blogger is never late, she blogs precisely when she means to.”

*ahem*…

*shyly waves and cowers from behind a corner*

Hi-ya…. so… I’m a just a little bit late on the whole new Doctor thing…. Let’s just say that I was trampled by so many people and fangirling that I have just now recovered and that this is the first time that I have been able to blog… yep. that’s my story… and I’m sticking to it.

In reality it’s a horrible sickness I have called procrastination *COUGH COUGH* excuse me.

 

So, now we all know who the twelfth Doctor is, Peter Capaldi… wait.. was it Cavaldi? no it was Kigali… bah.. whatever. we’ll have fun with this name.

Anywho… can I just say that I’m really really excited about this fellow. I have high hopes for him, he’ll be fantastic!

I’m super excited to see what kind of Doctor he will be. Although I have really enjoyed the spunk and spontaneity of the two previous regenerations I’m looking forward to a more serious fellow, someone who might be a little more stable. I think he’ll still be his usual fun and clever self, but on a much lower tone, where he may not be obsessed over bow ties and fezzes I think he’ll have his own dry fantastic humor oozing out all the time. I kinda picture him having a lot of sass… kinda like Nine, but maybe not quite as lonely and dark (after all Nine had just committed genocide on two different species. that would make someone a little grim…).
Something I really want Twelve to be like is a sort of father figure, I mean, we’ve always known that he’s been a father and that he had a family at one point, but we’ve never seen the fathering side of him. I think that it would be really sweet if he was someone more dependable and protective for Clara as more of a daughter instead of a possible love interest (which has been the Doctor’s roll for the past few faces).

I must say this is very exciting for me! I’ve never been caught up in Doctor Who when something big like this has ever happened! It’s positively wonderful to be in the madness with everyone else as it actually happens.

Another thing I’m looking forward to is Moffat’s writing for the Doctor (oh, the genius!). Moffat has an entirely new game to play, a new character, a fresh page that’s very different than before.  He’s gonna do a great job!

Overall, to me, things are going wonderfully!  I’m very excited for the future the show and fandom,

I would love to hear what you all think of Peter Capaldi as the Doctor, now that the dust as settled and things are clearer.

Until then, toodles!

A Forecast for the Upcoming Weekend in Whovianland

Well, well, well
“The clock is striking twelve” and fandom emotions are currently pretty quiet, but there seems to be a stirring of excitement and electricity as the weekend approaches. Why might you ask?
The new face of the Doctor has been found and will be revealed for the first time this Sunday.

I must say, I’m quite excited, but I’m also a little bit nervous. The fandom is on the edge of explosion. This is the calm before the storm. Enjoy these last few moments of peace before everyone explodes into their rants of excitement, nervousness, hatred, love, dread, admiration, of the new face of our beloved Doctor. (I also don’t think it would be too much to expect another wave of sorrow and mourning for Smith. *sobbing*)

The overall forecast for Whovianland: Expect some bumpy weather in the next few days, Friday should be pretty still, Saturday, expect a few early showers of excitement and anticipation, mixed with anxiety. Sunday, well, get your umbrellas out cause it’s gonna be a stormy day. Buckle your seat belts and get your typing fingers ready  to shoot out your own thoughts of the new face as the news is spilled and everyone’s ideas pour out onto the internet. Good Luck.

If you want to hear it for yourself, here’s what BBC America has to say.

Geronimo!!

PS. I have one last parting thing to remind you all of.
Remember: No matter what face the Doctor has, he has, and always will be the same Time Lord we all love and adore. There may be several faces, but it’s the same hero. All regenerations are generated equally. Love the Doctor. Even if you may not love the face of the Doctor at this exact moment, or the one you see on Sunday, just do your best to simply love just the Doctor, because that’s who we all love. (and eventually, this new face will probably snatch your heart away at some point in the future anyway.)
In Moffat we trust.
