While we’re on the subject of our favorite television shows: for those that might be interested but are as yet unaware (probably a grand total of six people, I imagine…) this weekend will see the arrival of Neil Gaiman’s contribution to my personal Best Show Ever, Doctor Who, on BBC America (or BBC On Demand on my Time Warner service) or wherever on the internet people find shows their cable provider doesn’t carry.
Interview excerpts here.
Sadly, they rejected my suggestion for the episode title (see above) and went with The Doctor’s Wife. Not familiar with the backstory of this 48-year old series? He’s an alien with a time machine, the last of his race. All you ever need to know.
