I am a long time Doctor Who (probably longer than some of you have been alive) and i can't tell you how much i've enjoyed the revival of the series. And now with David Tennant's and Russell T Davies aka Rusty's end with the series upon us, it's going out with a bang.
Sure there are things to nitpick and plot hole bunnies but it's the ride that's important and this is one hell of a ride to the end and the the new beginning with a new Doctor and Producer in 2010. Rusty and David are saying goodbye and both being fanboys of the show are giving their all.
I won't go into specifics but will mention what i liked.
Wilf, he needs his own series, why is he so important to the Doctor and is he something else?
Donna, to me she was the best companion the Tenth Doc had and i'm sure she'll have more to do in Part Two and like Wilf, who is she really?
John Simm, more OTP than the last time as the Master!
The return of the Time Lords and Gallifrey, knew this would happen or will it? Is he Omega? and who is the mysterious lady "helping" Wilf?
And of course David Tennant, if it weren't for Jon Pertwee he'd be my favorite Doctor, the man is one damn fine actor.
Rusty you bloody bastard how can you make us wait a week for the next part! LOL
I'm damn proud and still excited to be a Whovian.

No, not some dead South American Marxist but Chia Pets!
It's officially Christmas when the Chia Pet commercials start popping up on tv.
Chia Pets are the "Oh CRAP! i forgot to get them a Xmas gift and only Walgreens is open" gift for the holidays.
Tell them how much you think about them, get them a Chia Pet! :)
Cha Cha Cha Chia

Just 20 days away now from new Doctor Who and the first part of the last David Tennant story as the Doctor.
So like Wilf and come on Christmas and get here, it'll be tinged with a bit of sadness to see one of the best Doctors leave (he's almost as good as the Third Doctor).

I think movie fans and Doctor Who fans will remember Richard Todd, who just passed away at 90.
He played Sanders in the 5th Doctor story "Kinda". Movie fans will remember him from the Dambusters, Longest Day, Rob Roy the Highland Rogue, Virgin Queen and Never Let Go, to name just a few.
A couple of pics of him from "Never Let Go" and the Christopher Lee Sherlock Holmes tv movie "Incident At Victoria Falls".

It's not Christmas time to me until CBS shows "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and they did last night. Every year since 1964 i've waited for the special and then it was Christmas for me.
Charlie Brown Christmas special also applies. :)

The greatest Horror star of Spain, Paul Naschy has died from cancer at the age of 75.
Starring in many euro-horror films from the 60's to the 00's, his most popular era was during the 70's with his El Hombre Lobo films where he starred as the cursed Waldemar Daninsky.
Thanks for the films Mr. Naschy!

I know i have too much time on my hands because i keep thinking of starting a Western movies blog. Does the blogverse really need another blog about Western movies?, probably not.
I really don't blog as much here on the E Banana or at the Macabre Drive-In Theater, i figure i'll probably slack off on any new blog(s), I love westerns and would probably have a great time but i think i'll let that idea sit awhile (like a few other ideas i've had here and at Macabre that i've never got around to doing).
The picture above is Lee Van Cleef in "The Big Gundown".
Van Cleef is one of my favorite Western actors.

It started in a junkyard, two teachers following their strange student and finding a British Police Call Box and into the TARDIS they went, starting the longest and best science fiction tv series ever.
In 2010 the Doctor returns once again, regenerated and ready to take us on the greatest adventures of Time and Space.
I first became a fan in the early 70's, so Jon Pertwee the Third Doctor will always be "my Doctor" but i've loved them all from Hartnell to Tennant and i'm sure i'll like Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor.
Remember to reverse the polarity of the neutron flow!
