Happy #newtowho week!
My brother and I are fairly #newtowho (being only finished with season 4) but we’re enjoying the ride.
For a long time, my friends were trying to get me to watch it and I really resisted. I thought I gave my best shot to watching it and I “just couldn’t get into it.” They let it go, and eventually so did I.
One day, my fifteen year old brother told me that one of his favorite shows was Doctor Who, but he had only seen a couple of Matt Smith episodes that were on BBC. We watched a few of them of Christmas Eve, and I decided that I would give it another go, but only watching it with my brother.
I’m away at college and I rarely get to see my brother. Plus, he’s in his angsty teenage boy years and doesn’t enjoy hanging out with his family as much any more. But once we started Doctor Who, it changed.
Doctor Who brings my brother and I together. He and I stay up late and watch hours of Doctor Who, just because we only watch it together. Nine is now his favorite and we’re both obsessed. It’s one of my favorite parts about being home and we’re watching everything for the first time.
Next time I go home, we begin Season 5 and we’re both really excited about it. He’s one of my best friends and I’m really glad we found something we both love to bring us closer together!
