This is just to say that I have been converted . . .

. . . into a Doctor Who fan.

In my defence, however, the Doctor is clearly a humanist. I mean, he's not human himself, of course, but he likes human beings in a very humanist sort of way, and it's not as if he has any religious beliefs that might disqualify him.

At any rate, having made it to the end of Series 2 (which is very much an ending), I'm sort of hoping that I'll be able to stop watching every Doctor Who DVD I can get my hands on and start doing, you know, stuff. Like the Nonbelieving Literati, for example. Which reminds me, have I misread the pattern or is it my turn to choose the next book after this one?

The Doctor is a whomanist.

In case you're not aware of the BBC iplayer, which allows you to watch any shows you missed recently, there's the link. :)

Alas! It only works in the UK.

Probably just as well. I'd be tempted to skip ahead, otherwise.

Ah well, I guess we're the ones paying for it!

Absolutely used to love Dr. Who. Friends in school even knitted Dr. Who scarves and tripped people up (accidentally of course) in the hallways, with long tails of rainbow mischief.

Stopped in to say "I miss you"; I suppose you are off somewhere doing equations? : )

Lynet said...

You had Tom Baker scarves, eh? Very cool. Sorry about not being around much. Lovely to hear from you as ever.

Lynet,

I haven't watched Dr. Who in years. Is there a new series out? I was a fan in the 70's I believe...

I still owe you some answers - sorry about the delay.

You bet there's a new series -- currently starring David Tennant as an exceedingly likeable tenth Doctor.

Hmm, Can't get the link to work - is it because I'm in the US?

Lynet said...

The link is working fine for me here in New Zealand, so I've got no idea why it doesn't work for you, OC. You might have to try googling 'doctor who' or something.
