Rape is not a joke. →
This is not funny. At all. I know this video has been going around and many of you may have seen it already, but I’m going to share it, too. If anything, to make sure that women know this asshole’s face and name wherever he goes. It’s so sad how rape is so often used as a punchline. Disgusting.

Discovering Doctor Who – Season 3, E10: Blink
So, I’ll confess before I write this that I had actually seen this episode before. Though, now, with more Doctor Who history, knowledge, and love under my belt – it took on an entirely new context. I am really, truly amazed at what an incredible job Doctor Who does with making the ‘Doctor Lite’ episodes so enjoyable. It’s a mark of great storytelling that extends behind just developing a...
Discovering Doctor Who – Season 3, E8 & E9: Human...
This two-parter answered the question of what would The Doctor be like if he was human? And, I must say, it did so in a really incredible way. These episodes were exciting, full of interesting characters, and allowed David Tennant to really show that he can do some pretty great acting.

Anyway, there was some discussion in my household after we watched this episode as to its merit. My boyfriend seemed to think that it was not that important in the overall story arc and that it wasn’t that...
Discovering Doctor Who – Season 3, E6: The...
Hmmmm. Let’s see. This was not my favorite episode, I must say. I just didn’t really get into the plot of this one or the villain too much. Though, it was nice seeing a bit more of Martha Jones’ family and did serve to set up something which I suspect will play out in an important way – that Martha’s mom is getting information from Harold Saxon about The Doctor and how ‘dangerous’ he is. I...
Discovering Doctor Who – Season 3, E1, E2, E3, E4,...
I’m behind. I had been doing so well with keeping my posts up to date with my Doctor Who watching. And, then I don’t know what happened. But, I am already about to watch E6 of series 3 and haven’t written anything about E1-5. So, they are all getting lumped together here. Sorry Doctor. Sorry Martha. This has nothing to do with my feelings about the episodes – but just my time management...
