Haters Be Hating The Doctor

Yeah, I have gone all Ghetto here and frankly, I don’t care what you haters make of it. Every day I read posts and blogs that keep trolling Doctor Who. Initially, I was outraged, but now I smile in amusement, cos you never know how great you have become until a ton of people start bitchin about you. Then you know that you have made it.

What is it that they detest about the show, I do not understand. Is it because it is so successful? How does it matter if the show is a little over the top, it is pure entertainment. Some people have a problem with it being a children’s show; well, the Harry Potter series started off as a children’s book, and look what a phenomenon that was.

Others keep comparing it to Sherlock. Bitch please! These two shows couldn’t be more different when you take into consideration the fact that Sherlock cannot be caught dead with knowledge of the solar system, and the whole premise of Doctor Who revolves around the whole of the universe! There are millions of people out there who simple adore the show, and for good reason. All of them cannot be delusional now, can they?

I have read so many people say things like the show helped them when they were trying to get clean, helped them through the loss of a loved one, proved to be a companion to the loneliest of people, and yet so many people have a problem with Doctor Who. The show gives you infinite hope; hope that one day you may just prove to be as brave as Martha Jones who travelled all over the world spreading the Doctor’s word all by herself, that one day you may have a best friend like Donna Nobel who will save you from yourself, that one day Amy and Rory’s story of infinite patience and immovable love will be yours.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but make sure that you have earned them. I am not saying that every person who watches the show has to be absolutely mental about it, that is simply not possible, but when there is no valid reason to hate it then why despise something that means so much to someone? Agreed, some people fall in love with the love stories in the show, but come on, its not like it is along the lines of Twilight, which is by God the parameter against which all the garbage on this planet is measured. I mean, the Daleks falling in love with the Cybermen will be a better love story than the Twilight horse shit. So be reasonable, be kind, and don’t judge.

Do you think the fact that the word ‘judgmental’ has the word ‘mental’ in it is a coincidence? Well, I think not. What gives people the right to get on a high horse and fling their unwanted and shallow opinions on someone? Its not the first time that people have questioned my obsession over books and TV shows, and it won’t be the last. there was a time when I used to get offended, sometimes feel like a social pariah, but now I flaunt my obsession. I wear it like a badge of pride, cos I know that it sets me apart from the ordinary ‘adorable’ people. It means that I have it in me to be passionate about something, and not just anything, it is something intelligent and complex, and is beyond the grasp of ‘normal’ people.

There was a time when being called a geek or a nerd was something to feel embarrassed about, but now it means that once you are done with your education you are going to make it big, maybe not Mark Zuckerberg big, but you will most definitely not be or barely getting past like most of the ‘jocks’ in your school who once picked on you.

Society stinks and how I like to think of them is a bunch of people who are completely unoriginal, want everyone to adhere to a certain set of rules that have been set by another long dead bunch of dunces, and are terrified of anything that threatens their oh-so-right set of shitty rules. Somehow no matter what you do, it is never going to be good enough, so why not do your own thing and let the haters hate?
