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.

PS: Just had to add this picture of David Tennant’s, cos he is ADORABLE!

Doctor Who Racist? Go Screw Yourselves, Academics!!!

0

Less than a minute ago I read a blog post on how academics all over the world (Americans) declared Doctor Who to be an abysmally racist show that confers with the most traditional and primitive views. Well, dear academics, this is utter horse shit, and you can screw yourselves!!! Yes, please do that as by doing so you will be making a better use of your time, and leave Doctor Who alone! If you were actually real academics, would you be bothered with a television show? Isn’t there something more important in the world to study? Why pick on a show that has turned into a geek religion, because you never mess with the geeks and live to tell the tale. Like Tony Stark said, “You know the thing about smart people is that they have their asses covered.” So let me try and penetrate that thick ‘academic’ skull of yours with some smart and valid arguments.

Firstly, in the very first season, Rose Tyler the Doctor’s companion is dating a black guy named Mickey Smith who is played by Noel Clarke. Agreed, in the beginning Mickey isn’t the stand up macho dude who would have a huge impact on you, but the character development was such that before the end of the second season he is named the Defender of the Earth. Oh yes, he is. Would this have been possible if the entire cast and crew along with the production house of Doctor Who would have been racist?

In the third season the Doctor had a companion named Martha Jones played by Freema Agyeman. FYI, she is black. Yes, the Doctor did not fall madly in love with her, he couldn’t have because he already loved Rose, but he did treat Martha with a lot of respect and was always concerned with her welfare. He battled monsters and rescued her heroically before she crashed into the sun. Would this have been possible if the show had been based on a racist mentality?

Now you ask why the doctor did not fight slavery, oh you daft ‘academics’, the Doctor cannot change fixed incidents in time. He keeps warning his companions against it too, and so there is no way that he could have saved the mankind from slavery. The Doctor creates a sense of belonging. All over the world people are connected with the help of this fandom, irrespective of their nationality or the colour of their skin. It is a TV show people, leave it alone. Spend your time studying something that is legitimate instead of flinging your crappy views on a TV show. Watch it if you like it, if not, for the love of God stop passing judgments.

Expelliarmus: The Solution to Everything

When you come to think of it, Expelliarmus is a simple little spell; it just disarms your opponent, and gives you quite an advantage. However, there is something deeper and more reliable about the spell, and this fact is simply hard to deny when it has been tested in the world of Harry Potter, and also Doctor Who.

Expelliarmus is the spell that saved Harry from the very grips of Lord Voldemort. It’s a very ordinary spell, nothing fancy like say Sectumsempra, which mind you creates wide and deadly gashes in your victim leading him to bleed to death. However, it comes handy at the weirdest of times, and not only at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, or some grim graveyard located in the Muggle world, but also in the year 1599, in the time when Shakespeare was most prominent and his works were played at the Globe Theater.

Image

Yes, as it so happens, Doctor Who along with Martha Jones travel back to 1599, and they are right in the midst of witnessing the greatest wordsmith of all time. However, things are not all right, as a pack of wicked witches are plotting on using Shakespeare and his power over words to forward their cause. As usual, the Doctor comes to rescue, and the witches are at the verge of getting a dose of their own medicine, only, this time along with a good dose of the spell Expelliarmus. Yes, that is the spell that sealed the deal and saved mankind from extinction.

Well, if the spell can hold back the darkest of wizards, then what chance do a pack of daft witches stand, right?
