Who’s waiting (& jealous)?

So… It’s not long at all until the 50th anniversary and, apart from hype on Facebook and this weekend’s Doctor Who Weekend on Watch (I’m starting to love that channel) I haven’t seen much “buzz” surrounding the lead-up to a very special, very exciting event in televisual history… Maybe I’m just looking in the wrong places?

To be fair, I’ve been mostly looking down at my phone and my computer every moment or every day for the last few weeks (working, of course), but still.

Anyway, yeah, that’s what I’m currently wondering. Where’s the hype? Come on BBC, sort it out! I guess they’re looking to get Children in Need out the way first…? When is that? I know it’s in November; I’m just not sure when.

Tangent.

My Mum, little brother and little sister are going to a convention in London in November (can’t remember what it’s called – come on brain, it would be good if you started working now) and I’m pretty jealous. If I was younger and cooler I would say “well jeal” or if I understood Twitter a little better I would say #SuperMegaJealousMonster. Matt Smith’s there and everything. Boo!

That’s all I have to contribute this week.

I just thought that picture was funny. Because it’s true. Funny and true. Yeah.

Who really is frustrated (in a minor way)?

So, at the moment my life has been all consumed by my Sustained Independent Project (SIP); the final project of my MA.

For this I have to write a full length radio play (68 pages) plus a 3000 word, critical evaluation of the play (yeah, I know, I fell asleep half way through, too).

On top of this I’m also learning to drive (yeah, again, I know, what utterly stupid timing) and have my theory test next week – wish me luck – which I’m studying for every day!

The cherry on top of this “sleep-will-have-to-wait-for-a-month”, rapidly souring cake is that I, of course, have a beautiful, well-behaved, yet speedy and nosey, daughter of 10 months (who I love very much but who is even more stubborn and strong willed than me) and so, as you can imagine, things have been a little busy lately.

However, my entire household has taken to watching re-runs of Doctor Who at 7pm (GMT) on BBC3 every evening and I just can’t resist having a cheeky little watch from behind my essay, practice theory test or the stink lines which regularly emanate from my baby’s nappy when I change her ready for bed time…

Damn you Doctor (!), your brilliance is distracting.

Speaking of which, it’s currently on Watch & Watch +1 (more Doctor Who dedicated channels).

BYE!

Who’s in double figures?

So… We’ve finally made it into double figures on the countdown to the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special on 23rd November (UK).

A week before the 50th AS (Anniversary Special) my baby turns 1.

I’m not sure how I feel about this. I’m anxious for time to hurry up so I can see what happens for the big 5-0 but I also want it to slow down so I can keep my baby… Well, a baby… For a tiny bit longer.

Mixed feelings. Excitement, anticipation, nerves, welcomed nostalgia… And a little bit of sadness all thrown into one big emotional pot.

Ah, the trials and tribulations of being a Whovian Mother….

Pretty much…

Who’s wishing?

I wish I could see Karen Gillan’s shaved head for myself.

I wish I was sat in the audience whilst Matt Smith discussed leaving Doctor Who (so I could cry uncontrollably and speculate with other Whovians who will be next in line).

Basically, I wish I was at Comic-Con International.

But I’m not.

I’m sad.

Who’s complaining?

I’m an Englishwoman;
I moan when it’s cold
and I moan when it’s hot.
I moan when I’m bored
and I moan when I’m not.

I miss the team
and I miss their missions
I miss the moral themes
and I miss the fantastical visions.

Come back Doctor-man,
The soonest you can, too;
I’m a moaning Englishwoman
and I’m lost without you!
