    They’ve got to film new episodes sometime, right?

    linnealurks said: When you say Christopher Eccleston left Doctor Who because he "didn't care for the direction of the show", that's kind of misleading. He didn't get along with one or more directors or producers of the show, and didn't like the way the higher-ups treated the crew, but he was fine with the scripts and the story line. Maybe that's what you meant to say but it's hard to tell.

    "I left because of politics. I did not see eye to eye with them. I didn’t agree with the way things were being run. I didn’t like the culture that had grown up around the series. So I left, I felt, over a principle.”

    He left because he didn’t care for the direction of the show.

    calebmcwalrus said: do you think that the ninth doctor should have gotten an extra season or two?

    Sadly, Eccleston left on his own accord because he didn’t care for the direction of the show. So it wasn’t so much that he wasn’t allowed another season, he just didn’t want one.

    I do wish though that things could have gone differently in that regard though, because I think everyone could use more Nine in their lives.


    sherldoc said: I literally just started reading your stuff five minutes ago, and I love love love you already! QUESTION: How long have you been watching Who, and will you raise your kids (if you plan to have any) on it? And who's your Favorite doctor, Classic or not?

    Aw, thanks!

    I’ve been watching the show since spring 2010: I got caught up on Eleven, continued watching in realtime from A Good Man Goes to War onward, then watched all of Ten, then Nine, and then assorted Classic episodes. Whew.

    Hahaha, interesting question. I mean, yeah, if/when I have kids, I’ll probably show it to them at a younger age than when I started watching, but I wouldn’t force anything, haha. If they like it, awesome! If not, that’s fine too. :)

    Four, Eight and Eleven!

    Anonymous said: Do you think the 12th doctor should get a new sonic screwdiver or keep the current one?

    Hmmm…I like the idea of every Doctor having their own unique sonic, just as another unique detail to go with each outfit/personality, but keeping the same sonic over several regenerations adds a really nice sense of unity to the show.

    So I guess I’m okay with him keeping the green one, but I wouldn’t mind it if Twelve ends up with a new screwdriver, so long as it’s not the result of some really contrived plot point.

    Also: the next sonic screwdriver should have a hot pink light. Just sayin’.

    Nope, I’m in the US! I live in Boston/NYC, my time is pretty evenly split between those two cities currently, planning on moving to Brooklyn though within the year :)


    Off to make apple cinnamon muffins. The second time I will be making them and they are amazing; thanks to doctorwhoproblems for sharing the recipe a while back. :) 

    Lemme know how they turn out!
