I Was Expecting a Tentacle-y Thing

I Was Expecting a Tentacle-y Thing

Today, after six months of wading through spin-offs, I finally returned to Doctor Who proper. When I crossed the finish line of Phase One of this ridiculous project, the latest season was still months away from airing. Today, then, I started a re-watch of the Thirteenth Doctor's first season -- this time while walking on a treadmill, as any sensible fan should view it. 

Oh, brilliant!

Oh, brilliant!

I did it! As of about 7:30 am this morning I completed watching every single episode of Doctor Who that has ever been broadcast (including reconstructions of the 97 currently-lost episodes), all while walking on a treadmill. During the past eighteen months I have taken 3,630,973 steps walking 1,897.84 miles, and watching 275 stories and 843 individual episodes. I have reached the end of Phase One of the Time Treadmill.

So let's talk about the final (for now) episode.

Is the future going to be all girl?

Is the future going to be all girl?

The BBC just made their big reveal, announcing the Thirteenth Doctor. Welcome aboard, Jodie Whittaker! If you don't know her, she was the grieving mother in Broadchurch (and thus not a surprising choice from Broadchurch creator and new Doctor Who showrunner Chris Chibnal). I can hear the anguished screams of NerdBros all across the internet, and their tears are sweet, sweet nourishment. I'm all in.
