I didn’t really start watching Dr. Who in earnest until I was in my teens, and then I was totally addicted to its campy sci-fi wonderfulness. The funny thing is, I later saw an episode that I recognized as one I’d briefly caught part of when I was rather younger, and hurriedly switched away from because it scared the hell out of me—at the time I had no idea what the show was or what it was about. I just knew there were giant spiders biting a girl, and something about a humanoid alien about to get his brain vivisected, and when you’re young those are scary things! It left enough of an impression that I still found the same episode a bit creepy the second time around, even though by then I was quite familiar with the show.
Today, though, I have to share a great little video called “The Complete Dr. Who in Five Minutes:”
Found on the eminently handy SF Signal blog.
In an unrelated note, my review of James Rollins’s Sandstorm is up at the reviews blog. I have two cookbook and three novel reviews coming up soon!
