Lately it has become a bit of a thing for people to ask me what I think of Doctor Who episodes because I've said I watch the show and I've done some fanart.
First off, I'm not so much a Doctor Who fan as I am an Eleven fan. Years ago I bought the Nine season cheap just because I knew Simon Pegg was in an episode. I watched it from start to finish but it didn't grab me at all.
Later a friend sat me down to watch the Ten seasons and I watched it to the end but it still didn't catch my interest.
Then I started watching the Eleven seasons on my own because I knew Mark Sheppard was in two episodes, and I fell in love.
So yeah, I was certainly not a case of "you always prefer your first Doctor" and it will be interesting to see if I will fall out of love again now that Eleven is gone.
Secondly, I have a very hard time taking the show seriously. Sure, I cry a bit from time to time and sit on the edge of the sofa when it gets existing, but I will never be one of those people who jumps up ready to fight if someone insults the show. I watch it because it is corny and childish and over the top and weird and stupid. I don't expect continuity or serious subjects from it any more than I expect it from a Sunday cartoon.
Sometimes when I watch it with a friend he will say "This part is so embarrassingly stupid. Shame they had to end such a good episode so stupidly" and all I can do is look at him and ask "How is that any more stupid than everything else on the show?"
So asking me what I think of a Doctor Who episode will always get the same answer:
It was stupid and silly and weird, but I had a lot of fun watching it.
