The first teaser trailer for the new series is up and EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I know there isn't much to it, but the way Christopher Eccleston says "I'm the Doctor, by the way" was just... I must have listened to it five times. It gave me shivers. Happy/scared "this-show-I-love-more-than-anything-is-really-coming-back-I-can't-believe-it" shivers.

My first, my oldest fandom. Indeed, one of the oldest fandoms there is -- certainly one of the oldest SF fandoms, anyway. It gave me screaming nightmares when I was eight but I could. not. stay. away. And that was years before Peter Davison came on board as the Fifth Doctor (and my first real teengirl crush). I have a huge box of the Virgin New Adventures and BBC Eighth Doctor novels (*nods respectfully at [livejournal.com profile] kateorman and [livejournal.com profile] jblum for providing me with many hours of reading pleasure*) plus a bunch of videos (*grins thankfully at [livejournal.com profile] avarill*). When I heard there was going to be a new series produced and written by people whose names and credentials I actually recognized and whose work I'd already enjoyed (Rob Shearman!!!) I could hardly believe it.

Is it spring yet? Forget the sixth HP book, I want my Doctor Who!!!

And wouldn't you know, I deleted my last DW icon yesterday. D'oh! I need to make a new one...
It's official -- this man is the new Doctor.

As in Doctor Who.

As in, the new series is really happening.

And Rob Shearman is one of the writers.

Excuse me a moment:


Sorry, just needed to get that out of my system.

P.S. Christopher Eccleston looks rather Lupinesque in that picture, now that I think of it...
I've just finished listening to Scherzo, the latest Big Finish Doctor Who audio drama featuring the Eighth Doctor and his companion Charlotte "Charley" Pollard, and I'm utterly overwhelmed. Slightly spoilerish observations follow... )

Ahem. I apologize to the universe at large for this fit of incoherence.
