After watching Doctor Who since 9 (Christopher Eccleston) and giving up sometime around the birth of Clara- who annoyed the hell out of me- it was so much fun to check out the new series and really enjoy it this Sunday!
The Woman Who Fell to Earth wasn’t a perfect episode and I was a little upset about the death at the end (though I think they’ll fix that) but I like the new companion people. The writing was really good again! It was funny and honestly a bit dark- thanks tooth collecting alien.
Best of all Jodie Whittaker (whom I’ve never seen in anything else admittedly) did a great job as the Doctor. Hell she even built her own sonic screwdriver. I’m also interested to see what they do with Ryan who has dyspraxia and Graham whose cancer is in remission.
So yeah first episode its hard to say where this is going but I’m excited for this series again!
And speaking of things I’m excited about and Doctor Who… how I missed the Good Omens trailer is hard to believe since I’ve been hyped for that one since David Tennant and Michael Sheen where announced.
They play angel and demon best friends (depending on which one you ask) who must stop the end of the world from happening so they can continue to enjoy life. The series is based on Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett a book I was sure I read but apparently not. I will be rectifying that soon 🙂
And now thanks to the Discworld series read along I fell like I have a good enough hold on Pratchett’s writing to really enjoy this one.
Good Omens isn’t on Prime until 2019 but considering how fast 2018 is flying by… 🙂
I’ve also been looking forward to The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina where Miranda Otto and Lucy Davis are playing her Aunts. I didn’t even realize Michelle Gomez (who played Missy on Doctor Who) would be playing Madame Satan. Which great name. Liked the little snippets of all of them in the preview and if nothing else the show looks like it could be fun.
Though I did have that Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen song stuck in my head for days! Netflix will drop Sabrina on October 26th providing me with some witchy goodness for that weekend!
Lastly of course the greatest trailer of them all was released…
5 minutes of extended Aquaman goodness
Oh alright that has nothing to do with Doctor Who & lord knows you don’t need to sell me but, sorry to the comic fans, I’m pretty sure this is the only time in history that suit ever looked that good.
The preview does have some new back and forth between Arthur and Meera, some great action sequences which include Nicole Kidman for one. Also it launched my internal debate. Wet Aquaman or dry on-land Arthur?
Aquaman (and I) will be in theaters in December so plenty of things to look forward to for the end of the year!
