I'm in love with a fictional character. I

It's time for another Doctor Who post, mostly because Emily and I are getting ready to catch up on this current season's episodes tomorrow night. Or, you know, just because. Who says I need a reason to write about The Doctor? 

Also, this post will be in list form. You all know that I'm a little obsessed with lists.

Places (or time periods) I would want visit in the TARDIS:

We all have a list, don't we? Places we would want The Doctor to take us once he begs us to run away with him forever in the TARDIS. After much difficult thought, here's my list, in no particular order.

  1. The planet of the Oods. Is it weird that I would want to go here? It looked so beautiful. Also, the whole psychic singing thing is really interesting. On the other hand, their faces freak me out. Real bad.
  2. The library planet. I mean, other that that whole flesh-eating Vashta Nerada incident, come on guys. A whole planet. With every book in the universe ever.
  3. The 1960's, to see The Beatles play. But only if I actually get to listen to their music, and not a bunch of screaming girls. Although I can't exactly guarantee that I wouldn't start screaming along with them because OMIGODTHEBEATLES.
  4. Australia. But mostly to see Kirsti, who gave me the idea for this post, and because I've never been to Australia before. But sorry, Kirsti, you can't come with us. He's my Doctor, and I'm not sharing.
  5. Back in time to do nerdy music things, like see original performances of pieces by guys like Beethoven and Bach and Mozart and Puccini and other awesome dead guys.
I could put down a lot more, but it would make this post exceedingly long and I would probably lose your attention before I got the chance to ask you what YOUR list would be!

So, Whovians, what's your list? Where would you ask The Doctor to take you, should you ever get whisked away in the TARDIS?


  1. 1. Can I come with you for like ONE adventure and then you drop me home again????
    2. Cosign on numbers 2 and 3.
    3. I would want to meet Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte.
    4. I would also want to go to the signing of the Batman Land Deed in 1835 and find out exactly what happened, because that stupid thing was the bane of my existence at work for TWO YEARS, and it still bugs me.
    5. I think I'd also want to go to New Earth, where the grass smells like apples and the nurses are cat people.
    6. I'd want to go back in time and see dinosaurs. For all of five minutes before I peed my pants in terror...

    1. You know how it goes. ONE adventure turns into a bajillion, and before you know it one of us ends up dead, or in another universe, or with their memories erased. Actually that'll probably happen to both of us.

      Also, I have no idea what the Batman Land Deed is. Probably because in America they don't really bother to teach us history that doesn't somehow pertain to us.

    2. You know... if Rose got to bring Mickey for forever, and Captain Jack came along sometimes... surely you can bring Kirsti (and me... cough... cough...) along for some adventures too. OH! I want an adventure with Jack!

  2. Hmm, let's see. Well, in the interest of full disclosure, I've never seen Dr. Who. It's one of those that I WANT to start watching, and I know I SHOULD start watching, and it's even on Netflix and everything! The problem is my husband wants to get into it as well, but he's in the middle of ANOTHER long show, so I feel like I can't watch it without him, but if I wait for him, it might never happen. Being married is tough sometimes.

    Anyway, I am totally with you on visiting the "famous moments in music history." I want to see if Lisztomania really was as intense as Beatlemania, like my musicology professor lead me to believe. And the first performance of Beethoven's 9th. And about a zillion others.

    Hmm . . . I can't really think of any others. I'm kind of a one-trick pony, I guess. Although that library planet sounds cool (except that other part of it that didn't sound so cool).

    But, as I said . . . I have no Doctor. And no Tardis. But if I'm sticking to shows I'm a fan of, then maybe I could get Rodney McKay to take me in one of those special time-traveling Puddle Jumpers from Stargate.

    1. Well, tell your husband to hurry up so that you can start watching Doctor Who!
