So, wood cleaner. Well, Jake was standing in front of me, I was on the couch in the dining room, which was there temporarily because of shampooing the carpets. Well, Jake was going to clean/polish the sidetable, and he asked if it was supposed to be oily like that. Well, he was spraying it at his cloth, but it spurted everywhere--and landed in my wide-open eye.
What happened next I hardly remember. I remember a fierce burning and rubbing (bad old me, couldn't help it) and somehow someone took my glasses and I stuck my face right under the stream of water coming from the sink faucet, and literally said, "MOM!! A CLOTH, I NEED A CLOTH, MOM!!!" over and over. Embarrassing, I admit, but really, I couldn't help it. The glob of cleaner had landed on my naked eye. O_o And as I tell it my eyes are watering...
It took fifteen/twenty minutes to get it all out, and then there was an occasional twinge every once in awhile. But I can see just fine, and my eye is no worse that it was before. :)
And Doctor Who? What about it? Ah, yes, EPIC!!!
Doctor who is like a Science Fiction series of a man called the Doctor who travels through time and space, A Time Lord who's whole planet had been destroyed, rescuing planets and attempting to crack ancient secrets, usually with the help of a companion. He's a brilliant, fantastic person who can sometimes talk too fast.
What sometimes throws people off is that its about aliens and such--but some of these aliens are more human than we are--except that they want to destroy or get something. As Jake said, Doctor Who is to Science Fiction as Lord of the Rings is to fantasy. If you're insane and have lost your mind, this movie is for you. ;)
If you ever watch this, START FROM SEASON ONE. There are a lot of things that happen in Season One that are vital for the rest. You MUST start at the beginning.
I am currently on Season Four, and loving it. :) Here are the companions, listed from best to worst.
Rose Tyler. Played by Billie Piper, I really liked her. She was there for... what, three seasons? Maybe just two... but she was my favorite, and I forever miss her. But there have been a few glimpses of her since then: **SPOILER** Donna (a companion) told her to tell someone, "That bin," because she was leaving car keys there. Well, when the girl turned around so we could see her face, it was Rose! Of course Donna didn't know that. Well, Rose watched her walk away, and then walked away herself, and disappeared into thin air. **SPOILER** **SPOILER** and also she was seen briefly on a screen when Donna was trying to get it to work. **SPOILER**
Donna Noble. She's my second favorite, played by Catherine Tate. She is the companion that I'm on right now. Quite a spit-fire, bossy, and a bit loud, she has a hilarious personality. She also was in the Runaway Bride formerly, and came back as a companion later.
Martha Jones. Played by Freema Agyeman, I really didn't like her. I don't know why. She was an African/British. She also sort of liked the Doctor, but she was just a friend to him. She eventually left voluntarily so that she could be with her family. I don't know why, but I really didn't like her.
There's also Amy Pond, but I can't judge her since I haven't seen any episodes with her yet. Here's a picture of her anyways. :)
And now for the Doctors! There are three different actors, but so far I've only seen two of them.
My favorite, Christopher Eccleston! He was the ninth doctor, counting the old doctors from the old versions of the movies.He is the first Doctor in these seasons. He was only there for one season, but he is still my favorite.
David Tennant. Brilliant, as he would say. :) He's hilarious and I love it when he figures things out and starts talking too fast to understand, like Eccleston did sometimes. :) He's got this way of looking at you, brows low, mouth partially open. And when he smiled, it was a full-toothed smile. XD He sometimes wears glasses, too. Here's a picture of that 'look':
And Matt Smith. He's the youngest of the actors for the Doctors, but I haven't seen any episodes with him yet, either. So here are a few pictures with him and his bow-tie. :)
So! I have many favorite episodes--Blink, The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, The Girl in the Fireplace, etc. Blink was epically fast and, as the Doctor said, "Don't even blink. Good luck." And then he blinked. 'Twas quite creepy, as if you blinked or turned your back, the weeping angels would go lightning fast. If they touched you, you went back in time and eventually died. :P It was mostly about Sally Sparrow.
The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances are truly creepy episodes... they're a two-parter. Manny joined Jake when he was at the Empty Child, and she got so freaked out that they stopped. Even Jake was scared. At this time, I hadn't seen any Doctor Who. Well, when Jake was gone, Manny and I decided to try it. We started it where she left off and watched on through the second part, The Doctor Dances. So I never did see the first half/three quarters of The Empty Child.
The Girl in the Fireplace was just... EPIC. There are far more that I can't remember the names of.
All in all, I love Doctor Who. If you like Science Fiction, there's a pretty big chance that you will like this. Its both grim and serious with hilarious things stuck in there. Not cheesy hilarious, but truly funny.
Notice, each Doctor had they're own coat and style. :) Eccleston with his leather coat, Tennant with his brown trench-coat with the split coat-tails, and Matt Smith with his (is it tweed?) coat and bow-tie.
There are a few inappropriate references, but only mentions, and nothing truly bad, and not very often. That is one thing to watch out for.
And now I feel like drawing them all... >_>
