Chocolate and Blueberry Cookies

This is my #newtoWHO story. 

I was never really a huge sci-fi fan. I liked Firefly but that’s about it. Then last summer my husband and I watched our first Doctor Who episode, The Eleventh Hour. I was instantly hooked.

We then went back to the beginning of the 2005 reboot and watched an episode (or two or three) almost every day. I couldn’t get enough. I loved everything about it. Traveling through space and time. The quirky doctor. His lovely companions. Meeting aliens and historical figures. Great writing. Really amazing stuff all in one show.

I didn’t understand fandom until I started watching Doctor Who. Now I’m obsessed with EVERYTHING related to it. Totally want this skirt. This bookcase is on my list of things to get for our house. My husband and I dressed up as The Doctor and The T.A.R.D.I.S. for Halloween. I am even planning on taking a trip to The Doctor Who Experience with my family in a couple of years. I’m a Doctor Who nerd and proud of it.

Do you wanna come with me? ‘Cause if you do then I should warn you, you’re gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past; Aliens from the future; the day the Earth died in a ball of flame; It won’t be quiet, it won’t be safe, and it won’t be calm. But I’ll tell you what it will be: the trip of a lifetime. – The Ninth Doctor
