I have a confession....well I guess if you've been following me for a while then it's not really a confession, more of an affirmation....

A couple of years ago I kept seeing friends on Facebook post about this show called Doctor Who. I kind of knew what the show was, but I had never sat down and watched it. We have a Netflix subscription and I was looking for something new to watch so I figured I'd give it a try. I watched a couple of episodes, starting with the series reboot that started in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston in the lead role as the Ninth Doctor. After a few episodes I was beginning to see what everyone was all excited about. Then real life got in the way and the Doctor took a backseat to my capstone and thesis. Once I emerged with my degree in hand, I turned back to the Doctor and picked up where I left off. From that moment on, I have been hooked. I watched all of the new series, then moved on the what is considered the "classic" series. I have my own sonic screwdriver, I've eaten an entire bag of jelly babies, my Duffy bear I bought at Walt Disney World is now known as The Dufftor, I have Doctor Who related shirts, I have a ton of Doctor Who related pins on Pintrest...I have embraced my inner Whovian.
So why am I telling you this? No reason really, I share so much with you guys, and I especially love sharing things that I'm excited and passionate about. If you haven't watched Doctor Who before and you like science fiction, I highly recommend you give it a try. If you are a fellow Whovian, please share with me! Do you have a favorite Doctor, episode, companion? When did you start watching?
For more Doctor Who related fun I recommend:
Traveling The Vortex Podcast (tell Keith, Shaun and Glenn I sent you!)
Blogtor Who (Warning! Spoilers!)
And if you find yourself in Chicago around Thanksgiving, I'll be attending Chicago TARDIS! This will be my first time attending a Doctor Who related convention and I am SUPER excited. Not only will I get to hang out with my fellow Whovians, but their guest list this year can't be missed (I'm looking at you Colin Baker!)
