Well, look Who’s back! Yep, it’s the Master, back in the Domain for one day only and subtle as ever. And I’m here today to honour my namesake’s long-time nemesis, as he celebrates his 50th (or is it 1,200th?) year. Ladies, gentlemen and variations thereupon, I give you The Doctor!
I’m a fairly recent convert to the church of Whovianism. In fact, very recent – I started catching repeats from David Tennant’s era last year. It’s fair to say I was promptly hooked. Since then I’ve been through the entirety of the current run, started watching some of the classic serials and bought myself a fez!
What puzzles me now is why I came to the series so late. I was alive during the Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy years, and judging from what I’ve seen of those eras, I should have loved them! It’s absolutely my kind of show. Aliens, time travel, fantastically out-there ideas and plots tinged with an edge of darkness, but also with wonder. Plus, sexy companions (of either gender, let’s not be fussy). Oh well, it matters not. The great thing about coming to the show now is I can literally travel in time to relive all the classics (that are still available). That’s a lot of timey-wimey, wibbly-wobbly adventures (not to mention sets) to look forward too.
Hope you enjoyed this brief return. Sorry it can’t be a more permanent one just yet. If it helps, think of this like the McGann era. Knocked down, but most certainly not out. The Domain will be back. Geronimo!
Oh, I’m sorry. Allons-y!
