First I will freely admit I am not a whovian. I have seen a episodes. I know who people are and I hang out with enough whovians to understand everything.
When the 50th anniversary aired I wasn't to pumped for it cus you know no Eccelston (who I adore greatly. He was Destro) but Geese_Juggler was so happy and enthusiastic about it I decided to give it a whirl. And it was awesome. I will admit it.
I was totallyhappy until 8.5 sipped his tea shook ten and elevens hands, said goodbye to the awesome Clara and stepped into his TARDIS and regenerated and I started sobbing. It was the first time I had seen one. (I had seen Jugglers reaction to them)
So long story short you people are masochists for going through this every four years. I am going to watch Star Trek now. :/
