I’ll not lie. For the last, oh, two weeks I guess I have been quite distracted from writing. (From life, really.) I tend to go through these phases of needing to hide in a world that isn’t my own. Maybe we all do, I don’t know. This time though, I fell into the world of a TV show, and boy did I fall in love.
See, my lovely friend Erinn always talks about how wonderful Doctor Who is, so I gave it a try.
Oh. My. Gravy.
I may or may not have watched four entire seasons of the Doctor (plus the specials) in the last two weeks. (I did.) And it may or may not have been the most amazing television show I’ve ever, ever seen in my life. (It was. Is. Who am I kidding? I’ve already ordered the DVD’s.)
And it’s not just that David Tennant is a little bit foxy (if you’ve seen season two, you get the joke), but that does help.
Admittedly, I haven’t watched the 5th or 6th seasons yet with the eleventh doctor. I’m so attached to the 10th doctor, it’s going to be a hard transition for me. YES, I’M CRAZY. It’s okay. I like me this way.
Anywho…my break from reality into the world of Time Lords and fantastic romance turned out to be incredibly inspiring. The character development and interaction in this show is unbelievable. You’ve got the funny lines, the quirky characters, Rose (OMG Rose + the Doctor = best TV romance EVER), the over-the-top action of saving the world in pretty much every episode…I mean, how could I not be inspired by that?
Now I’m itching to write. Itching to put all of these ideas and things that I’ve learned into my new story.
But I want to know, do you have a particular TV show that has inspired you? (Apparently I’m into TV shows lately. Don’t know why, but eh, whatever. It’s fun.) Or, you know, we could just talk about the epicness that is Doctor Who in the comments…I’m all for that too.
