BBC Doesn’t “Get” Doctor Who…and never will


Now if I’d only Googled “Doctor Who body pillow” I would have discovered that one already existed with the 10th Doctor’s image. Figures. So…does BBC own Hot Topic or the other way around?

Yeah, still bitter…

‘Doctor Who’ season 11: Peter Capaldi to be replaced by ‘dashing’ younger actor

IF this article has any truth to it, is simply tells me that the BBC doesn’t “get” Doctor Who and, sadly, I doubt it ever will.

A young, dashing Doctor? Yeah, ’cause that’s the ONLY reason I watch the show. Should I subscribe to Teen Beat (or whatever) so I can crush over a poster of the young Doctor on my wall. Or get my money ready to purchase the new and upcoming Doctor body pillow? (eye roll)


By the way, BBC, my kids actually like the 12th Doctor and have preferred his episodes of those of Matt Smith….you know, that young Doctor.

I thought I was a NuWho fan, but the more of the classic episodes I watch, the more I’m understanding the show and the importance of Capaldi’s Doctor in the Who universe. Poor writing and a lack of good story ideas has ruined the 12th Doctor’s run. It seems I’m one of a few fans that has come to that realization.

Okay, I sound bitter. Is this what fans went through during the first run? Sheldon was right. 🙂
