I admit to being a long-time fan of the science fiction series, Doctor Who, having gotten hooked on it because our son loved it way back when. (I even knit the boy a Doctor Who scarf, á la Tom Baker –although I didn’t quite finish it, it was soooo long and took forever to knit. Sorry, Dan!) Well, B and I have recently gotten hooked on the newer Doctor Who series that started in 2005, and have been watching them all on DVDs. We loved Christopher Eccleston as the ninth Doctor, and David Tennant as the tenth Doctor. Last night we watched what is now my favorite Doctor Who episode thus far: Blink. It was so creative, and such a great time-traveler story. I’m not surprised to discover that it won a number of awards, including the Hugo Award in 2008.
It’s a perfect fit for my Sci Fi Experience — Carl V’s fun January-February challenge — because it was creative and fun, and a great Sci Fi experience!
