I climb mountains every day
Often they loom over me
An intimidating mass of stone, ice and snow
And me with only the clothes I stand up in
Sometimes they are gentler
With well marked paths, ropes, and even guides
But they are always there
In front of me
And I grow so weary from the effort.
I see the war,
it makes no sense
I’ve always felt
was to explore,

My first Doctor was 10.
We shared a love for running, converse chucks and improvisation - it was love at first sight, really. It was hard letting him go, but I enjoy Matt’s Doctor just as much and I would also encourage everyone NOT to skip Nine - he is really good! :)
To the people that are new-to-who
Wahey! Welcome! :) Lovely that you found us
and Happy watching!
Don’t be overwhelmed with the sheer mass of episodes that exist: you DO NOT have to watch everything to understand or even enjoy Doctor Who. :) You get to cherry pick and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Plus: did you know there are also radio plays and audiobooks with the Doctor? :) yes.
Here is my advice and I am dead serious about this. You might get into a situation where you consider buying a sonic screwdriver. And then you might think “nah, it’s too expensive and I am too old” and so on.
DO IT ANYWAY. Really. It’s so much fun. You are not too old. I got mine for my 30th birthday and I have so much fun playing with it. Mock-fixing the computer or waving it at my whovian friends.
The sound alone has people looking. :)
