Because that’s how I see the universe. Every waking second, I can see what is, what was, what could be, what must not. That’s the burden of the Timelords, and I am the only one left.
I am back with the Time Lord review
I have been delaying this post for days because I want to have some space between my last Doctor Who review to this one. I don’t want to turn my blog into something TOO Doctor Who-ish .. In fact, I will stop watching Doctor Who after I have finished watching all the special episodes that followed after this fourth series. In other word, I will stop watching Doctor Who as David Tennant changed into Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor.
…but…what I meant by stop is more like a break I am taking a break from Doctor Who and will continue again when I finally have the entire episodes in series 5 (2010) and 6 (2011). Series 7 is still on the run. I want to have 2 series before starting the Doctor Who marathon again
Again, I have to mention that I have just followed Doctor Who series from series 1, which was aired in 2005. Out of all companions (of the ninth and tenth Doctor)…and out of all his companions from series 1 to 4, Donna Noble (Catherine Tate) is my favorite. I like the fact that she doesn’t fall in love with the Doctor…they are simply friends. I find this friendship relationship is more appealing than one sided love affair. Like I said in my review of Doctor Who 2007, I didn’t like Martha Jones because she was too in love with The Doctor, I still like Rose Tyler because even though she liked him but they were more like comfortable friends than people who were in love.

I am getting more and more into British series now
When Sherlock suddenly grabbed people’s attention toward British series, I noticed another series that have been talked by many people…the series is called Doctor Who.
My friend downloaded the movie (horay…because I can’t download such big files. Yes, I watched it illegally because Indonesia Movie distributor only cares with US series) and gave me the file. I was surprised when seeing the actor was not the only I have been seeing in Tumblr lately. Then I saw the year of its released, it was 2005. I browsed the internet and found out that Dr. Who is the longest sci-fi TV series ever made. It started in 1963 and the doctor has been changed for 11 times.
This 2005 version of Doctor Who is the ninth doctor played by Christopher Eccleston.
I was hooked from the moment I saw the first episode! I know nothing of Doctor Who except the name when I saw it, it really gave good impression. I wasn’t going to name it the best series I have ever seen…but it sure is a fun and addicted sci-fi series.
A little information for those who never saw Doctor Who. Doctor Who is a movie about the last Time Lord, a kind of alien who has the ability to travel through time and space. The Doctor has incredible knowledge of all creatures in universe. He always shows up in time of need and danger seems to be his ecstasy. The Doctor travels around in his spaceship called Tardis, it takes the shape of a Police Box (a small police station which existed in 1963) Doctor Who sometimes travels with a companion, sometimes more than one companion. In this 2005 series, his companion is Rose Tyler (Billie Piper), there are also 2 men that appear in some episodes. Read more of this post
