As I get older, I get more and more cynical about the world around me. I seem to have become a master of double-think as I enter my mid-twenties… I’m really good at both disliking and, simultaneously, finding joy in the most irritating of things; Facebook being a prime example and one I regularly discuss. Naturally.
However, what I have found a lot of joy in very recently (apart from, of course, being a Mummy) is the amount of people now taking an interest in my incessant ramblings and embarrassing stories of geek-dom.
It makes me so happy that something as iconic and amazing as Doctor Who has seemingly brought so many people together.
America, Britain, Australia, even Japan all communicating joyously over a television programme and the fascinating stories that go with it.
I’m so used to feeling frustrated by the world around me, but the fact that all of you are coming together, to read my stories, gives me a flash of calm in an otherwise slightly annoying world.
Doctor Who really has created a multi-coloured, multi-functioning family. Free from discrimination or judgement.
Please keep sharing your Doctor Who stories with me. Every single one puts a smile on this otherwise grumpy, disabled, single Mum’s face.
Doctor Who – doing so much more than it says on the tin!
P.s. Was the Peter Davison/David Tennant Children in Need episode a fair few years back anyone else’s favourite thing to have ever been on TV? Haha.
