Doctor Who is a childhood rite of passage according to Sprogdaddy. It’s not really my cup of tea, although I sometimes sit down and watch the more exciting episodes. I even enjoyed Torchwood for a while, especially the two mini-series. I expect Sprogzilla will be indoctrinated into The Cult of Who as soon as he is old enough to understand what it’s all about.
My favourite Doctor was played by Sylvester McCoy. Don’t laugh, that was just my generation lol. I was a bigger fan back then in the 80′s and I really wanted to be Ace. Talking of which, isn’t it funny how she (Sophie Aldridge), her son and David Tennant are all in Tree Fu Tom? I digress…. Sprogdaddy, being a child of the 70′s, loved Tom Baker of course. In modern times, I thought Christopher Ecclestone was quite good (and Billie Piper made a great companion) while Sprogdaddy is enjoying Matt Smith’s current incarnation.
I love sci-fi, so I guess it’s a bit odd that I don’t enjoy the show more. It used to be more a kids and blokes thing I think, though that seems to have changed with the 21st century series. A lot of mums certainly seem to like it!
Perhaps when Sprogzilla is watching, it will become a family show for us and I’ll learn to appreciate it more. Won’t be letting him watch Torchwood any time soon though…..
