We have Doctor Who back and perhaps it's better than I remember it from being a kid. It's certainly gripping. We also have the technology to let me watch it, even though I wasn't anywhere near a TV when it was officially broadcast. We also have a BBC that bothers to make a programme on the scale. We have actors and writers and special effects people who can create such a vision.
In short, we are very lucky to have our Doctor Who to enjoy.
I regret not seeing the episodes that I could have seen. I am sorry I don't always have time to watch this sort of thing, or that I choose to spend my time taking in less worthy stuff.
But it's a positive marking scheme where Doctor Who is concerned. I've seen and enjoyed enough episodes to put me in touch with a childhood hero and to enable me to understand the world I occasionally drop in on.
I like being a giggly kid again for an hour every so often.
