Just Make It A Good One, Eh?

Hello! My name is Jenna, one of the new additions to The Gallifrey Times’s team. I’m very excited to get started on this adventure, especially entering a new era with the Twelfth Doctor.

I am a fairly new Whovian. Running a fandom blog on Tumblr, I had seen posts about Doctor Who quite a lot, but I didn’t want to add yet another obsession to my list! (Unfortunately, seeing those posts on Tumblr meant that I knew several spoilers before I ever watched the show. Oops)

On Halloween night 2012, I finally cracked. I asked my sister if she wanted to watch the first two episodes of the revival, Rose and The End of the World, with me. The rest is history! We watched the whole new series by the end of January (watching The Snowmen out of order to see it live) and I have been hooked ever since.

After I watched the new series through three times, I finally made the decision to watch the Classic series from the beginning (yes, missing episodes included! I watched the Loose Cannon reconstructions). I started that in January and I am almost finished with the Pertwee era now. It’s probably going to take me until the end of the year! Not that I regret it in the slightest. It’s been great fun!

My favorite revival episodes are Vincent and the Doctor, Blink, Human Nature/Family of Blood, and The Name of the Doctor. As you can probably tell, I love episodes that make me cry! So far, my favorite classic serials are: The Mind of Evil, Inferno, Spearhead from Space, The Enemy of the World, The Aztecs, The Dalek Invasion of Earth, The Romans, and The Three Doctors.
