Why do I watch Doctor Who? Because I love fairy tales, and it's a fairy tale. It's a fairy tale about a crazy alien who travels all of time and space in a phone booth armed with a screwdriver, his brains, and a few friends---and saves the world without returning violence for violence. Over and over again. Yes, It's corny, it's low tech, it's slightly insane, but it's GOOD.
This message brought to you by my mother's horror at my new ringtone and her telling me she was going to shoot my phone if I didn't shut off the noise. (It's the theme from Doctor Who.)
