November 23: a long wait #DoctorWho


Doctor Who Official BBC Site

Here there be Spoilers!
Gosh, what a finale!

A few years ago (about the second season that David Tennant was the 10th Doctor, I think), I started watching Doctor Who. Since then, I’ve tried to view all episodes live on BBC1 and when I did not, I watch the episode as a re-run (you just have to love TunnelBear!). Tonight’s finale – as with all finales – was gripping and amazing! And what a follow up again: it’s going to be a long wait until November 23, 2013. Can you imagine, John Hurt as the Doctor? But a Doctor who followed his own destiny?

And how heartbreaking, that goodbye scene between the Doctor and River Song … what a classic love story, but shown in such a novel way!

I can’t help but end all my sentences with exclamation points it seems, but this episode has once again taken me by surprise. Even the transition from the 10th to the 11th Doctor (I cried!) was not this exciting.
