And I started to walk
Pretty soon I will run
And I'll be running back to you

'Cause I followed my star
And that's what you are
I've had a merry time with you

US Invasion

The Sci-Fi Channel in the USA has bought Doctor Who! Hurrah! From the Press Release:

Welcoming the deal, Sci FI Channel's Thomas P Vitale said Doctor Who was a "true sci-fi classic".

The award-winning Eccleston series will premiere on the Sci Fi Channel in March.

Mr Vitale said: "With its rich history of imaginative storytelling, Doctor Who is a true sci-fi classic. We're excited to add the show to our line up."
So the Americans will finally get to see it. That's nice. But wait, isn't this the same Sci-Fi Channel who passed on buying the series back in March last year stating:

The Sci-Fi Channel are NOT in negotiations for the new series with their sources saying "Sci Fi Channel has already had a chance at the new series and passed after viewing some of the completed episodes. Some of the executives at the network found the series somewhat lacking and didn't think it would fit into the network's schedule." (Dated March 3rd, 2005)

"Witchcraft!" "Time Lord."

So, here we all are. Another new year. It's odd when you realise we're now closer to 2010 than 2000.

Everyone's made the same comment that we're in a weird alternate 2005/2006 where Doctor Who is now an amazingly popular thing instead of the lame duck it's been seen as for years. To see evidence of this, one would only have to look at my Christmas booty pile.
  • R/C Dalek
  • Season 27 DVD Boxset (such a waste of cardboard though)
  • Sonic Screwdriver
  • TARDIS Mobile Phone flasher
  • TARDIS keyring

And I could have got so much more. There's a board game, puzzles, more books than you can shake a stick at, more toys, a money box, etc.

Wow, that's how forgetful I am. Got distracted in the middle of writing this post. A few hours later, I go to shut down and fnd this window still open. And so to bed.
