Doctor Who Takes NYC Part 2- Series 6 Episodes 1 & 2 Spoiler Free Review

I’ve just returned home from the NYC screening for Doctor Who series 6’s first two episodes, The Impossible Astronaut and Day Of The Moon presented by BBC America and my head is still buzzing with excitement! I also haven’t eaten a full meal in about 20 hours so the buzzing might be a little bit of that as well. Writer Steven Moffat made us promise we would keep our reviews spoiler free…*River Song* voice “spoilers” so don’t worry. I planned on doing that anyway and trust me, you’ll thank me later. What happens in the first two episodes of series 6 you want to find out the old-fashioned way, with all of the shock and awe preserved.

I’ll start off by saying what an outrageously incredible few days it has been for me. After two major events it feels even more amazing than normal to be a Doctor Who fan right now. I’ve never done one of those, “waiting long hours in line for something geeky” events before, but for Who it was a pleasure and I’d gladly do it all over again. Especially when so many awesome and enthusiastic fans surround me!

Doctor Who Infographic

(click  image for larger version)

As some of you may know I’m in the process of catching up with Doctor Who. Last night I finished season 4 and literally can’t get that ending off my mind!  (SEASON 4 SPOILER ALERT) It’s also funny to mention that I was legitimately surprised about the Daleks I had to ask myself, “Really Jamila?! It’s ALWAYS the Daleks!”  My love for this show and the Doctor just seems to dramatically increase episode by episode. This past season I’ve been attempting to mentally prepare myself for life without Tennant knowing that his time is coming to an end. I anticipate a bought of depression to come along.

Current and soon-to-be Whovians we have Bob Canada to thank for the comprehensive infographic on Doctor Who and to all eleven Doctors, the TARDIS and the Sonic Screwdriver.

Picture of the Week- Doctor Who Valentine’s Day ECards

Happy Valentine’s Day Whovians! What better way to celebrate this day of love than with the show with a lot of heart, well two hearts to be exact. My brother suggested I watch Doctor Who sometime last year and once I finally got around to it my life hasn’t been the same since! I’ve laughed and cried and everything in between. I’ve even had dreams of David Tennant (#DavidTennantGroupie), but then again how could you not?!

My ringtone is the TARDIS takeoff/landing and when my phone rings I instinctively run to the room expecting the doctor is there with the TARDIS ready to finally take me as his newest companion (I keep a packed suitcase by my bed just in case). Expect to see a blog post from me soon about 10 Reasons why I love Doctor Who. Narrowing it down the 10 will be the hard part.

I found these fantastic/brilliant/lovely DW Valentine’s Day ecards on Craig Hurle‘s Doctor Who and The TARDIS Facebook page. The Simpsonized DW ecards were made by the ultra awesome Dean aka Springfield Punx check out his blog for other Simpsonized characters. (If someone knows the other artists can you let me know please?) Check out his Facebook page for more goodies and follow him on twitter @TheDrWhoTARDIS. Which ones are your favorites?

Beautiful Doctor Who Posters

I found these great Doctor Who posters on Geek-Art.  They are made by Karma Orange, a French graphic designer. Check out his website for more great stuff!

Mini spoiler warning: Some may say the images contain spoilers, however, but in my opinion, the posters are less of a spoiler and more of just not “getting it”.
