This is a blog : the fourth : Doctor Who

Doctor Who? Doctor Who, you know, that British TV show with the guy in the blue box that travels through space and time.

Let me just start out by saying that Doctor Who is pretty much that show I’ve never watched and wished I watched as a kid and growing up. It has all the elements of everything I like. Hands down my favorite show. I decorate my room with Doctor Who memorabilia such as little figurines and TARDIS lights. Secretly I want the Doctor Who backpack and who can go without a fez.

As you first watch the re-launched series you will see how cheesy the graphic. But if you look past the lack of graphics, you will find a great story in the making. Also, I’d like to point out that you can’t just ask someone to explain Doctor Who. There’s just so much timey-whimey stuff going on, and the Pandorica just restarted everything, and people were dead but not dead…you have to just see it to understand. Throughout the years the development of the cinematography and graphic design has captured a certain awe and emotion. Let’s just say I’ve cried a few times watching this show.

As a viewer we wish the Doctor would plant his blue box in our yard and take us as his traveling companion. Who wouldn’t want to see the world and travel through time? As Christopher Eccleston regenerates to David Tennant we start to see his relationship with his companion Rose Tyler (played by Billie Piper) grow and mature. All us girls wish we were Rose Tyler. I get choked up every time he was going to say it but couldn’t and then she cries. Can I stop typing now, I need a minute. Oh how Bad Wolf is a blessing and a curse.

The Doctor Meets other companions such as Donna Noble and Martha Jones and makes villains as well. The Angels are my favorite villain. Let me just say I hate dolls. I always think they are looking at you. They’re just creepy. So when you have a statue of an Angel that gets closer every time you look away and can take you back in time away from your loved ones, yeah there is something to worry about.

Fortunately, the Doctor is able to fight these foes and come out on top. As David Tennant regenerates to Matt Smith we lose a great actor that could be the Doctor forever, but unfortunately all things comes to an end. David Tennant grew up always wanting to be the Doctor. He would get in trouble because all his essays in school were about Doctor Who in some way. If you read about him on IMDB on his trivia it can tell you more interesting facts.

Matt Smith really took over the meaning of the Doctor. He made bow ties cool and when he couldn’t figure out how to argue back he always told you to “shut up” as his defense. Whenever he was excited he would spin and pull out his screwdriver. “Geronimo!” he would go and we all knew he was onto something. His love for his friend such as Amy Pond and Rory Williams helped the Doctor understand love and what we are willing to do to fight for it. We also are also introduced to River Song who is also a time traveler. When her character is first introduced with David Tennant we see that it his future wife he will marry yet they are both at different ends of the time spectrum gradually getting closer with every time they see each other. We also find out other things along the way but no spoilers here.

Currently the Doctor is played by Peter Capaldi and his companion is Clara Oswin Oswald played by Jenna Coleman, the impossible girl. I feel that these past few seasons have not been about the Doctor but more about the story of Clara and her relationship with the Doctor. The Doctor seems to get too proud and Clara is there to help him along the way.

Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television show produced by the BBC from 1963 to present day. It is about a mysterious time-travelling humanoid alien adventurer known only as “The Doctor”, a Time Lord from the planet of Gallifrey. He explores time and space with various companions in his TARDIS, a time-traveling space ship. Although bearing remarkably human-like features, he is a Gallifreyan Time Lords — a mysterious alien race that has mastered time travel. The Doctor occasionally regenerates into a new form, allowing a new actor to step into the role. The Doctor faces a variety of foes and enemies along his travels but also helps people along the way.

Doctor Who originally ran from 1963 to 1989. Russell T Davies relaunched Doctor Who in 2005. The first series of the 21st century, featured Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor. Doctor Who also spawned spin-offs such as Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures , both created by Russell T Davies.

This is a blog : the third : Sherlock BBC

_75987533_sherlockandwatson

Sherlock Holmes. Arthur Conan Doyle’s character has fascinated us for decades. If you haven’t seen Sherlock the BBC series then you probably don’t know good TV. Sherlock played by Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement, War Horse, The Hobbit, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Imitation Game) and Watson played by Martin Freeman (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, The Hobbit, Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, The World’s End) star in this British television mystery crime drama series. If you love Arthur Conan Doyle’s books you’ll love this modernized series.

Sherlock isn’t like a typical TV series. Running at an average 1 hour and 30 mins, 3 per season, you get the movie experience without the dragged out series.

I love watching Sherlock because I love trying to figure out who-dunnit. With Sherlock you can feel smarter and feel more sophisticated as you drink your tea. Oh how I would love to have a Sherlock party where we all dress fancy and sip our tea and eat biscuits.

The visual appeal of Sherlock is that of hipster elements and modern conceptual art. Shots of London are shown throughout and A+ performance from both Benedict and Martin.

“I’m not going to go into detail about how I do what I do because chances are you wouldn’t understand. If you’ve got a problem that you want me to solve, then contact me.” Sherlock

If you are an IMDB addict like me sometimes you would be disappointed because similar movies and shows are NOT similar so I’ve created a list for you better than IMDB.
