I haven't said anything about the 12th Doctor, yet, but have had a couple of days to watch interviews with him and see some of his history and I think he'll be an interesting Doctor. More towards the Classic era than we've had in the new episodes, but it's time to take a look back towards Classic, I think. I saw a wonderful quote from Neil Gaiman about how regenerations are running out and the fandom is panicking. He said that he believes (and made it a point to say this is not cannon) that the Time Lords can regenerate as many times as they want, but going past body 13 is dangerous and has consequences. Given how the Master looked in his 13th body, I can really believe that. *shudders* Then again, there was other stuff with him that added to how he looked, so that's neither here nor there. I also like the idea of an older Doctor again. The dynamic between him and Clara is going to change and I agree with something I saw on pintrest, he'll be more of a father figure now. The best friend dynamic is back and that makes me so happy. *grins*
Great, I have stupid in count and stupid in cage.
Okay, anyway, back to Doctor Who. I'm not saying I'm not going to miss Matt. I'm probably going to have a shock blanket and box of tissues with me at Christmas time. I also have to watch the episode alone because I have no local Whovian friends who will be in town that day to watch it with me. Matt is far and away my favorite Doctor since Four and I was heartbroken when he regenerated. I'm also excited to see what new energy Peter is going to bring to the role and the show. This is going to be very interesting. I do hope they do more with River because I'd love to see the change in dynamic there. :)
My trip is getting ever closer. I'm so excited I can't wait. I need to print off a few more directions and then all I need are tickets/hotel/transportation. The travel agent isn't exactly quick on these things. I think I might need to poke at her again. I found the picture I want to take in case of a Matt autograph, but haven't found one for Tom Baker yet. Still need to do that. Also wish the convention page would update with more information. I really am not too impressed with these guys. Oh well, one day out of ten and with fellow fans. Hopefully I can find some people to talk to.
Magical my ass
