Augh!

Missed the premiere of Doctor Who on CBC this past Monday. Had lost track of what they were starting it up, focusing on the SciFi Channel and the run starting in July. So, now I've missed both the Christmas ep and Smith and Jones. :-(

I wouldn't lose too much sleep over the Christmas episode. It didn't have too much in it other than a bit of continuity and setting up for the rest of the serious. Smith and Jones, however, was very enjoyable.

CBC apparently ran the Smith and Jones ep first and then ran the Christmas Bride one. Which doesn't make much sense. SciFi should probably run them in order.

I could probably skip Smith and Jones and catch the Shakespeare episode next Monday, but the OCD completist in my starts shivering. It is Doctor Who, however, so I'd much prefer to miss one, watch CBC and then rewatch everything from the beginning when it starts on SciFi in 2-3 weeks. :-)

Plus, I started watching Who with Tom Baker. So I'm used to it to some extent.

I started watching Dr.Who from the second episode. I only saw 5 minutes of the first episode before my brother thought it too frightening for me and turned it off. That was on November 23, 1963. I lost interest after Jon Pertwee and then only watched a few of the Tom Baker stories.

It's a cultural thing with me. I grew up playing Dr.Who in the school yard. The Daleks were, of course, my favourite monsters.

Daleks are pretty snazzy. The one from the 5th doctor, Resurrection of the Daleks, was one of my favorites.

Don't feel bad. I had to tape it because I was on Duty, and Pen accidently erased it before I got to see it. Grrrrr.

Heh. I won't be able to tape it. Abby plays softball from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday and she's asked me to tape a show on the Family Channel for her from 8-9.
