“Sometimes I think there’s something missing, like I had something lovely … and it’s gone”

The trailer for the 2023 Doctor Who specials has plenty to create excitement but also ensures it doesn’t give away the plot. Perfect.

Waiting a year to see the episode? Not perfect.

About to finalise my last 2022 to-do list. If something isn’t on it today, it’s not getting done this year. It amuses me to write my lists in a notebook with exterminate on it. I bought 12 on sale when the ABC Australia shops closed years ago and sadly this is the last one.

A spiral bound A4 hardcover notebook. There is a 4x4 grid of squares of different colours with a Dalek inside each one. Across the bottom is Exterminate! in red capital letters. A yellow pen is sitting on the book.

I’ve never seen Coronation Street so I don’t know Millie Gibson at all. Looks like RTD is going for a younger vibe again though. Can’t wait for new Doctor Who in 2023. 📺…

The BBC has released the trailer for The Power of the Doctor, which is the final Doctor Who episode with Jodie Whittaker and also the final with Chris Chibnall in charge.

I’m excited for it but mainly because it means Chibnall is gone. Jodie has been ill served with him in charge during her time. I’m very much hoping Russell T Davies finds a way to bin most of the terrible Chibnall concepts, starting with the stupid timeless child premise. 📺

Decided to watch Doctor Who from the very first episode and work my way forward to the end of the old series. I’m quite looking forward to this, it’s been years since I watched the old episodes in a continuous way. I usually dip in and out.

Kicking off tonight with An Unearthly Child in which we get Susan explaining “Well I made up the name TARDIS from the initials, time and relative dimension in space”. 📺

Decided I’d take advantage of the Britbox $2 for two months special and check it out. Should be enough time to see what it has that I can’t find elsewhere. If nothing else I can binge a lot of Doctor Who given it claims to have every episode of every doctor. 📺

I make things easy for my family when it comes to presents. I will love anything #doctorwho related. My niece recently made two coasters for under my mugs of tea.
