Regarding my Unexpected Hiatus

Hello, internet. I’ve¬†awakened from my slumber.

Don’t get me wrong, I love writing posts for this blog. It’s just… when I first watched “The Rescue” I was doing something else at the same time and pretty distracted. I still can’t remember the name of the new companion. Since I didn’t know what was going on the first time I watched it, I didn’t have very much to say about it, and didn’t want to put the effort into making a post about it. That, coupled with my extreme reluctance to try to figure out the plot of “The Web Planet,” has stalled my Doctor Who Journey.

I’ve wanted to write about “The Romans” for a while now; it’s the serial that prompted me to create this blog! It’s funny and serious at the same time, which to me is what makes Doctor Who in general so captivating.

Here’s what I’m going to do: I’ll write a post smushing three serials together: “The Rescue,” “The Romans,” and “The Web Planet.” It’ll mostly be about “The Romans,” but the other two are added in so you know I actually did watch them! Even though their “review” will probably only be a sentence or two long. We’ll see.

This triple post will come tomorrow! Deadline for self set!


Coming Soon

Hello. I told myself that I would try to keep posts about real life, especially those apologizing for a lack of updates, to a minimum. However, I feel that since I’ve been gone without a trace for the past two weeks or so, people who are interested in The Doctor Who Journey deserve an explanation, and at least something to read!

If you haven’t read my info page yet, I’m in college. For the past two weeks I’ve had more work than usual to do, and on top of that there was a lot of drama over where I’m going to live next year. Well, you’ll be pleased to know that I’m going to have one of the largest doubles in the building. Whee.

During that stressful time, I had forgotten that writing is actually pretty therapeutic, especially writing about one of my favorite things in the whole wide world: Doctor Who! But never fear, a new post will appear before the weekend. That’s right, before the weekend. Please feel free to remind me if it hasn’t happened. But now I’ve set a deadline! It’s sure to get done!

Thanks for your patience!


John Barrowman

“The Sensorites” will come tomorrow. Why so late? Because I’ve been really busy, with prospective students staying with me and AKGHDLKHSDK MEETING JOHN BARROWMAN AT C2E2!

Yes, that is me. And I just added some color to this blog.

So a new post either today or tomorrow.

Series 1

I’m very sorry about my forgetfulness pertaining to the early serials! I watched them months ago, and since their plots weren’t very coherent to begin with, it’s difficult to remember even important details!

Even though these early posts aren’t up to par quality-wise, I feel like I need to write them in order to have a full list of Doctor Who serials on this site. I’ll probably even go back and rewrite them someday, after watching the first serial again! But that’s in the far future.

For now, stay with me, even though there’s nobody reading the blog as it’s being updated this early in its lifetime. I’m trying to churn out the posts on the episodes I don’t remember so that once I catch up to where I am in my own Doctor Who Journey, I might have an audience. Doubt it, though!

Also, once I catch up to myself, posts will be written about each individual episode, and not entire serials. Also, I will be taking my own screengrabs of the footage instead of borrowing from others like I am now. Hopefully nobody cares, and if they do, they are free to tell me and I will take the photos down.

Remember, Marco Polo’s next!

About this Blog/Opening Post

Hello, Doctor Who fans and others!

This blog is basically a review blog, where I catalog my Doctor Who Journey. For those of you who are wondering what exactly a Doctor Who Journey is, it is my quest to watch every single Doctor Who episode ever.

You can have your own Doctor Who Journeys while following along with mine! But keep in mind, I’ve made a few rules for myself. Actually, wait, it’s only one rule: No reconstructions. That’s right. I’m not going to be watching any reconstructed episodes. I’ll be reading the scripts instead! So any lost episodes will be bundled together in the review of the next episode in order.

I’ve made this blog black and white because of the monochrome nature of the first few seasons. Black-and-white pictures just don’t fit in with a colorful blog! I might change the blog format once I get to the Third Doctor. But that probably won’t be for a while.

Also, I have already watched all of series one and half of series two. I do not have to watch them all again (especially “The Web Planet”), so I will be posting reviews of entire serials instead of individual episodes.

And that’s it! Thank you for coming to my humble blog. If there’s anyone out there.
