I find it funny that my inbox has over 100 e-mails in it that are labeled “Doctor Who” in subject. I also got a few comments already as well in regards…to yes you guessed it…the new Doctor.
With all these outcries to the Muse I thought that indeed the good Doctor deserved his very own post because honestly, the regeneration of our beloved 10th deserves that at the very least right?
I fear that I haven’t felt this badly about a regeneration since my fond favorite fourth Doctor, the great Tom Baker, regenerated into Peter Davidson. For a long time I resented Peter for taking away my girlhood crush, Tom Baker but I slowly came to love him.
So the Muse has a basic statement to release on the casting of the 11th Doctor.
Yes, that’s it. Don’t Panic. Be a good hitchhiker and just don’t panic. If you’re a Who fan you’ve felt this way for every regeneration of every favorite Who in the last 30 years or more. We’ve all seen our favorites come and go. We’ve all mourned our favorites. I remember mourning Tom Baker, Peter Davidson, I even felt some remorse for the late, great William Hartnell. Believe it or not I became mighty attached to Christopher Eccleston as well and I thought it was god awful they were replacing him with David Tennant. Weird right?
We have something to look forward to right? Our Doctor’s personality will stay the same but with new traits and quirks. Yes, Matt Smith is virtually a no name but if you think about it David Tennant wasn’t exactly HUGE in the way of stardom either was he? At the moment Matt Smith (kinda ironic his last name is Smith…as in John Smith…) probably isn’t our top pick for the Doctor but he’s young, he’s fairly good looking, and who knows (who knows..pun intended) he may be the next best thing to David.
I think we should all remain calm and hope for the best. I have confidence that the writers will bring us a fantastic Doctor and although I mourn the loss of David I do embrace the idea of a brand new Doctor. I think David shows alot of class to pass the torch and not milk the “brand” that Doctor Who has become for all it’s worth. I think he recognized the fact that things can get old really fast and he wanted to be remembered as a great Doctor rather than a washed up Doctor. So cheers to David for making a hard choice to disembark the Tardis and make room for a new Doctor.
Chin up Who fans! We’ll be fine. We should be more worried over the fact that Catherine Zeta Jones might board the Tardis next season….now THAT worries me! You do know that she and the hub come as a package?
The Beauty of Life is on my daily reading list so I was honored and flattered when it’s editor, Jamie, asked if I’d like to participate in her First Look Fridays post.
The First Look Friday entries are posted each Friday and feature a different blog and interview with it’s editor each week! It’s a really fun way to find out more about the author behind some of your favorite Beauty Blogs!
If you ever wondered how Musings began, or who the Muse really is, what blogs I am reading, or just more information in general about me you can hop on over to Jamie’s site, The Beauty of Life, and check out my Q&A session with her!
Random babblings that have nothing to do with cosmetics ahead!
I’m a PBS geek (or maybe I’m just an Anglophile. I haven’t decided yet!).
I know can you believe I admitted it out loud? I’m the little short, round girl that strolls down Madison Avenue toting a PBS tote bag like it’s a Fendi.
And proud of myself by the very way!
For 200 years now, give or take a few years, Mystery! has had the wonderfully macabre Edward Gorey introduction. I heart Edward Gorey so I’ve always appreciated the fine animated introduction of Mystery!
However, recently things have been a brewing at PBS! Change isn’t always my most favorite thing in the world and no I don’t embrace it. You embrace it if you like it so much! I’ll stick with the things I know thanks very much!
One such change that is unforgivable to the Muse would be the revamp, rename, and re-host of my very favorite program on PBS, Masterpiece Theater.
Masterpiece Theater has undergone not only a name change but also a host change and all this other crap I’m not loving.
Gillian Anderson is suddenly the host of Masterpiece Theater…oh sorry…it’s called Masterpiece Classic now. Granted, the content is still very much the same but I can do without Gillian Anderson. Sheesh, couldn’t we find a Brit to do the introduction? Hells, I’d have settled for Madonna with a fake British accent instead of Agent Scully!
Look at her hair! It clashes with the bloody back drop! Please can it be real British host time now? The Muse simply demands it!
Sadly, even though I donate gobs of spare cash to PBS they refused to listen to my demands for a new host and I’m somehow stuck now fast forwarding through the bad introduction of Masterpiece each week and hiding my checkbook as I refuse to donate money to them until they lynch Gillian! Sorry!
However, this week PBS more than made up with it when they revamped my second favorite show Mystery! with a new host and a new introduction!
Alan Cumming has made his debut as a fine host of Mystery! The Muse is not worthy of the awesomeness of Alan Cumming being so brilliant at introducing Mystery!
I lust after Alan Cumming in a major way and I couldn’t be happier that PBS has heard my agonizing cries of mercy and provided me with at the very least an awesome host for Mystery! It’s the least they could do after making me suffer through the badness that is Gillian Anderson.
On a side note check out Billie Piper making the cross over from Masterpiece Classic to Masterpiece Mystery! Obviously, life after Doctor Who and Diary of a Call Girl were simply not enough! Go Billie Go!
Ok I guess I’m appeased now! Happiness is gagging over Alan Cumming’s fine, dapper introduction on Mystery! Well done!
