I am a huge fan of Doctor Who. The show originally ran on British television starting 1963 and ended 1989. I found the show much like I found all my favorite British television shows (Monty Python, Black Adder, David Allen, The Young Ones), after coming home late Friday or Saturday night from some kind of "goings on" and flipped on Channel 11 (local PBS)and there was this strange cheap sci-fi.
The series was reincarnated and back on the air in 2005. I have resisted watching it till now because I did not believe it could have possibly been as good as the old series. Wow was I wrong. Not only is the show on par with the original but it has sired two spin offs, Tourchwood and Sara Jane.
I now have once again reserved Saturday as my Doctor Who day, but this time I have the added bonus, Ross and Rebecca now sit with me a watch it.
14 He makes grass grow for the cattle,
and plants for man to cultivate—
bringing forth food from the earth:
15 wine that gladdens the heart of man, oil to make his face shine, and bread that sustains his heart. (substitute Doctor Who for Wine).
