Bow ties are cool

Magnet #991 - Bow Ties Are Cool

I grew up at an ad agency where my C-suite made bow ties cool. I miss those guys. And, really, guys who know how to rock the bow tie.

Luckily, I've got Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor to fill in the gap, and it was probably this running line that won me over.

I've been saving this Cafe Press magnet for a couple of weeks, because Doctor Who Series 5 (or 31-ish, if you're really counting) comes out on DVD today. I'm excited, Best Buy's already told me it's waiting for me, so in about 12 hours, I'll have it in my hot little hands. (I'm actually more excited that the BBC DVD boxset prices were inexplicably a little more affordable for this season, but with a $20 BB certificate? Score!)

Won't lie, David Tennant will always be my doctor, no matter who the "girl who screams a bit" is by his side. And, I was a little nervous (and possibly psychic, with that Van Gogh magnet) about the new guy. But, after Matt Smith's first episode, I was kinda sold - his madcap Doctor was a little scary, but his performances with both Amelia and Amy Pond were just terrific. Plus, love her or hate her, Amy's a pretty great companion for this iteration of the Doctor.

Of course, (shout-out to @goddesspharo...and her glorious picspams) it helps that Karen Gillan's hair is just about the prettiest on television. (What? A shallow hair comment shouldn't come as a surprise from the girl who wanted to be a blonde Farrah Fawcett when she was five.)

Seriously, I do enjoy a good Eleven and Amy Pond story. And, between Van Gogh and the Weeping Angels two-parter, with a dash of River Song and even some James Corden, we had some really good episodes this season. Which is great, because those balanced out my two non-faves, Vampires in Venice (because ya'll know besides Vampire Diaries and of course, old-school WB, I hate vampires) and Victory of the Daleks (because ya'll know I hate Daleks - Oh. The. Horror.).

I'll also miss my ever-charming David Tennant Video Diaries, for sure, but maybe Matt's will make up for them? Maybe?

Anyway, if you haven't checked out the Doctor in any of his iterations, I don't know who you are, try the BBC official site...but for a much more fun dive into the Doctor's universe, drop by Blogtor Who, always ready with a good review, a laugh, and a fun time. /that's what she said!
