This video appeared on my tumblr dash today, and it was just what I needed. Dr. Who represents a universe of possibilities, actually, many universes of possibilities. He’s the smartest person in the room and the goofiest. He’s a curmudgeon and a softy. And the people who travel with him represent all of humankind, in all of its whacky silliness, complete with fallable foibles and wicked wisdom.
If you aren’t a Whovian, you won’t enjoy it nearly as much as those of us who are “Dr. Who” devotees. Never mind. It’s epic no matter what.
