Return of an old friend
This weekend, the newest season of Doctor Who began with the newest reincarnation of the Doctor. Although he may have a face that looks older, there is much that the writers preserved of the familiar Doctor Who set up that we all know and love. Slightly outrageous (okay, incredibly outrageous) fantastical science fiction plot elements and groan-worthy one-liners are still the name of the game and it was almost with a sigh of relief that I found those elements to be unchanged. Even though it was only two years ago that I met him, a lot has changed since then and I am again confronted with solitude, of a little different kind this time around. It's funny, those things that reassure us that all is right with the world and surprisingly, or rather unsurprisingly, it was Doctor Who once again that made it all okay. And so it was that this weekend, for pure pleasure and joy and a bit of an escape, I welcomed the Doctor into my home for another adventure.
