So, the new series of Doctor Who starts tonight (nd, as usual, I'll be at bloody work when it's on). To say that excitement has reached fever pitch in this household would be a massive understatement. [personal profile] matgb and [personal profile] magister are both as excited as me, and it's only a shame that Hol is at her dad's for Easter, or she would be joining in too.

This is the first time in my adult life that I have been dead set certain a new series of Who is going to be awesome:
  • Ecclescake turned out to be awesome, but before the series aired we had no way of knowing how good he would be
  • Tennant's first series I was apprehensive about because I hadn't enjoyed him in Blackpool or Casanova, and it turned out I didn't like his Doctor either
  • The remaining Tennant series I didn't feel aniticpatory for because I didn't like Tennant's Doctor
  • Smith's first series... well, what if he was worse than Tennant?
But I totally fell in love with Matt Smith's Troughton-with-a-touch-of-both-Bakers schtick and so this time... this time I have very few fears and a vatload of anticipation*.

And yet... Even this fever pitch of excitement is tinged with sadness. I don't think I can say it better than they have over at URP:

When I finally get to see the show tonight in the early hours of tomorrow morning, I shall be having a little toast: to absent friends.

The Brig and Sarah Jane

I urge you all to watch the tribute to Lis Sladen on CBBC between Who and Who Confidential. And if it's not on iPlayer when I get home there will be much swearing.

* which could be an issue, as this series now has a VERY high bar set for it...

Alas I have no cable tv so I will have to hunt this down on the net somehow later this week but I too am actually excited about this, unlike the rest of nu-hu, so um yea. YAY.
