lol I knew this was coming I used to make it a weekly ritual to complain about doctor who and insist that I would never watch it.
but yes. I recommend this show to everyone.
for me it was really tough to get into it because I’m not used to shows that are so ridiculous (and by ridiculous I mean farting aliens, bees that are six feet tall, etc etc). it took me forever to get used to all the weird special effects and storylines. but I got used to it eventually. it’s a show of its own. there’s none other like it and the questionable material is what makes it so special and quirky. in my opinion, anyway.
and as for what finally convinced me to watch it, I’m holding this bitch completely responsible. she hounded me for like over a year about this show and she’s very passionate about it.
also I’d like to hold this other bitch responsible as well because she told me doctor who was a happy adventurous show that was full of giggles and rainbows and she told me that it would help ease the pain all my other shows were causing me.
SPOILER ALERT, SHE FUCKING LIED.
idk man somewhere along the line (probably around doomsday I swear to fucking god that episode was depressing as fuck TAKE ME BACK) I developed such intense feels for the show that I couldn’t even function when I was thinking about it. like literally every time I think about the doctor I have to stop what I’m doing and just wallow in my river of tears.
lol okay bottom line, you should definitely watch it. or at least try. it’s not everyone’s cup of tea and it certainly wasn’t mine when I first tried to watch it. but if you stick with it, it gets progressively better and there are some fucking fabulous episodes let me tell you.
at the end of it all, you’ll laugh and have fun and cry and develop some new otps along the way I’m sure. and all incarnations of the doctor are completely adorable so you should just watch it for adorable men being silly and badass and cute.
I don’t even know what I just typed I hope this makes sense sorry sorry MY POINT IS THAT IT’S A GREAT SHOW AND I WAS WRONG NOT TO HAVE WATCHED IT EARLIER AND YOU SHOULD GIVE IT A FAIR CHANCE BEFORE JUDGING THE SHIT OUT OF IT LIKE I USED TO DO ALL RIGHT.
