Now I have to admit, as well as other Whovians who have watched the new series, the first couple of episodes are a little… odd.
The show is about a man named the Doctor, played by Christopher Eccleston, a Timelord from the planet Gallifrey who comes to save London from an invasion of “living” plastic mannequins. Silly, right? Trust me, it gets better as you go along.
On his journey to save London from deadly walking mannequins, he runs into Rose Tyler, played by Billie Piper, just an ordinary girl with an ordinary life, until the Doctor comes along.
The Doctor, along with his newfound companion, Rose, travel through space and time, fighting major threats along glorious galaxies and universes.
If you’re anything like me, you grow to be emotionally attached to fictional characters. This show really tests your limits and breaks your little fictional-character heart at times, but it’s definitely worth the pain.
The show really proves that there is more in this universe than just us. Before watching Doctor Who, I didn’t really believe in aliens. After I have seen all of the possibilities out there, I am fully on board with the fact that there is life beyond our tiny little planet.
Be honest: the universe is so expansive. How can someone be so silly to think that we’re the only life in this infinite space of new places and opportunities yet to be explored? Watching this show really opened up my mind to these new possibilities and, if you watch the show, your mind could be opened as well.
If you’re one for sci-fi television or looking to cure your summer boredom, I highly suggest this show. It has its ups and downs, but has great lessons about appreciating life at all times and to be grateful for the people you have in your life, because you never know when they might become a completely new person.
