 Over the last couple months I have been slowly (oh, so so slowly) watching Doctor Who from its very beginning. I'm talking Doctor One here. 

Anyway, keeping in mind this is 1963, a TV show and British SciFi, I have been loving it! William Hartnell plays the very "Get off my lawn!" old man Doctor, but there's a twinkle in his eye you can't help falling in love with.

Isn't that so like the Doctor?

My favorite bit about watching these old episodes is playing "Find the String" or, sit and giggle at the model making and inventive ways to make something "other"

This clip. This precious, glorious clip, summarizes what makes Early Classic Who so worth it.  Just watch up to about 02:18:00 (it's about six minutes long in total as it's the last section of the full episode) that's all I've gotten to so far.

Pay attention to 01:13:00 for DW Monster Craft at its finest, and then at 01:52:00 ... I don't need to explain why.

It's too amazing.



I hope you're laughing, because I was fucking wetting myself when the Brains in Jars started SCREAMING their eye stalks off. *wipes tear* Oh, Doctor Who. I love you so much.

I've seen the start to the nuWho era. I gotta say, it will still take some time to get used to this extremely young Doctor, but I love what I've seen so far!

The difference between RTD's era and now Moffat's era is staggering. Moffat is SO classic Who (that's a great thing) and RTD was SO revamping for a modern audience (also, a great thing but not needed anymore). I'm very excited to see what the Doctor is going to get up to next week!

And Amy Pond. Oh <3 Amy Pond. She is so kickass and broken at the same time. The Moff has done it again. He created Jack Harkness, River Song, the scariest fucking DW monsters ever...and now adorable, slightly not right Amy Pond.

In the end, after basically delivering The Eleventh Hour to [livejournal.com profile] form_of_zero , this was created via MSN:

Form of Zero says:
     11: Ill be back in 5 minutes
     *12 years later*
Lanarien says:
     lmao
     11: I just took her to the Moon and back. *2 years later*
Form of Zero says:
     Hart: Someone didnt learn to count
Lanarien says:
     lol!!
     Jack: Tell ME about it.
     Sarah-Jane: Or learn to read a human map.
Form of Zero says:
     Martha: Or see obvious advances
Lanarien says:
     Jack: Aw, Nightingale, you just should have gone for it. What have we learned?
     Master: It's a wipe.
Form of Zero says:
     Rassilon: If you just turn up your vent Master, you'd have heard the strat right. Noob.
Lanarien says:
     Wilf: This is why we can't have nice things.
     (oh god. What have we done?!)
Form of Zero says:
     Owen: This is why I play Horde
     I loled
Lanarien says:
     I haven't stopped
     Rassilon killed me
     the POTENTIAL to that joke
     Rassilon: This is the Vent of Rassilon, for the Raid of Rassilon. I am Rassilon, your Raid Leader.
     Daleks: FUCKING N00BS!
Form of Zero says:
     Master: How do you turn up the volume on someone? All I can hear is this beat. Sounds like drums.


Why, yes! That would be us forming DW into WoW. Why do you ask?

By the end of the conversation we had The Raid of Rassilon worked out to include: )

...This is not going to end well for any of the Crew lol. Thursday more will be shown and indoctrinated into the nuWho. They've already dealt with my fangasming for a year over my renewed love of DW, now there's an opportunity to really get them all hooked with a new Doctor. :D
