If there's anything that could bring a cease of hostilities among that bunch, it's the Doctor.

Anyone who follows along with my Twitter or Tumblr likely already knows this, but I have a deep abiding love for Doctor Who. Even when the show makes weird decisions or things about the quality might irk me I'm pretty much guaranteed to give them a pass for their shenanigans, if only for all the amazing fun they've provided me with throughout the years.

Luckily for me, I started on the Doctor at a young age; deeply sleeping parents and a general contempt for the idea of a bed-time often found me in front of the TV watching old TV show reruns. Among my favorite times of the evening, right around 1AM on weekdays, were those moments of joy seeing Fourth Doctor dash about with his ragamuffin style and genial, smarmy attitude. I spent countless years seeking out Jelly Babies in every corner-store in every town I was dragged around to, nearly always thwarted by the cruelties of loving an old British TV show in the early 90s.

Needless to say, I was hooked. I followed the Doctor's adventures religiously after that point, scrounging all the difficult-to-acquire tales of his exploits that an American boy living consistently under the poverty line could get his hands on (I will note, however, that I simply could NOT enjoy the Eighth Doctor. That dude was lame).

When the revived series started, I was ecstatic! To this day I've seen every episode as soon as it releases, usually bouncing with anticipation as the day draws closer and closer to that magical hour. Once I'd met Emily I had been every so tempted to share one of my childhood passions with her, but... it was one of those hobbies which had run me into personality conflicts in the past with my relationships (what person hates Star Trek without having ever watched an episode? I mean honestly!), so I gave it some time. Once I finally DID introduce her to that ever-moving Time Lord who'd brought me to planets beyond my imagination countless times in my life, I can't explain how happy it made me to see her eyes light up after her first adventure.

Now, Doctor Who with cheap takeout is a tradition. One we happily hope to one day pass on to our children, whom hold no hope of being normal human beings.

As a family, since we still all live in one house, we all watch it when it comes out.

Doctor Who is amazing.

I was little iffy on last week's episode, but otherwise it's been an awesome season.

That opening episode! ERMAGAWD!

I've spread my love of Doctor Who to every receptive friend I meet, and nearly every single one of them are now just as in love with that rascally Time Lord as me. Making it a family tradition is just awesome.

BUT THAT LAST EPISODE. OH MAN. (just watched it) ;_;

Yes, spread the love, spread the who.
