Doctor Who… Even Has Time To Watch TV?

Here is something surprising: The series ten finale of Doctor Who has come and gone but I’ve still only seen the first episode of this latest series.

Here is something still more surprising, at least to me: I somehow haven’t heard or seen any spoilers regarding all those episodes I haven’t seen.

It’s not that I’ve given up on the show. It just wasn’t top priority on my list of Fun Things To Do™. I fully intended to continue watching after the first episode, but then I got crushed under a mountain of schoolwork. And then I had finals. And then I was home for a few weeks, madly packing for Ireland and grieving the death of my cat and adjusting to being back home. And then I was in Ireland studying abroad and didn’t want to spend my free time there watching a show I could watch at home.

I used to be really big on watching each episode as it was released, often along with my brother. I posted reviews co-written by various blogging friends and myself. This time around, though, I just haven’t been interested in that.

I’m still interested in the show, though. I love how Capaldi plays the Doctor. I love Bill! I can’t wait to see more of her and see how her character arc progresses. I’m curious to see what Missy does in this series. I’ve seen glimpses of Things in the trailers that have me excited to see what happens next.

And, of course, once I’m all caught up I’ll be prepared to watch the Christmas special! I can’t believe Twelve’s run is almost over; he’s easily one of my favorites. (After Nine but ahead of Three, probably?)

But, yeah. I want to finish the series, post some mini-reviews, talk about my thoughts on the newly-cast Doctor (!!!). And continue to marvel at how I’ve miraculously avoided even small spoilers up to this point.

    This post is a big Mood. I’m about five eps behind on Who and honestly?? Life has just been too busy and I haven’t had any motivation to catch up. But I am extremely excited for 13, so I’ve got to at this point!!

      Have you been able to catch up at all since you posted this? I haven’t… maybe I’ll watch some episodes next week, before school gets underway.

      Meeee tooo… looking forward to meeting her! 🙂

        Nope! 🙂 School is already underway for me so I think all hope goes out the window for a while. Gotta get caught up before the Christmas special, though!
