Dr. Who Is Slowly Taking Over My Household

mac_os_tardis_wallpaper_by_aurorasognatrice_doctor_who-wideMy wife, who usually is the the person in charge of the remote control in our household; mainly because I usually watch a handful of shows but mostly because she would destroy my world if I dared to change the channel. Not kidding. She loves the TV. Which brings me to the subject at hand, Dr. Who.

Since Cary and I began METAL GEEKS, he’s asked me on many occasions if I’ve ever gotten into Dr. Who. Well to be honest, I really did try; but I wasn’t growing attached like the self proclaimed “Whovians” I see on the interwebz. I know Cary G’s wife, Kim LOVES the show. Even past guests and friends of ours, Will Bozarth and Iann Robinson are Whovians. Not JM…but it occurred to me this is slowly changing.

It all began on Monday. My wife decided she is going to watch “Season 1”. Which at the time I wasn’t aware, but now she has educated me that it was the Season with the 9th Doctor; Christopher Eccleston. It seems like its been every free opportunity she had she would watch a show or three at a time. Which brings us to today, Thursday. She is now onto “Season 2” with the 10th Doctor; David Tennant. Three shows in. My fellow Geeks, my wife is now a Whovian. I guarantee she will be current by Monday. Praise to you Doctor. You’ve done it.

So why even blog about it? Well the answer is simple. It’s 1:06 a.m. and I was editing Comic Book Reviews while listening to Iced Earth. Then for some reason I began looking for Dr. Who clips on YouTube. Then I began looking into Dr. Who merchandise; i.e., T.A.R.D.I.S. magnetic desktop displays, Dr. Who Mickey Ears, Dr. Who Mash-ups, Dr. Who coffee mugs; Fuck. The Time Lord has me by my curiosity. I found these incredible Dr. Who theme songs…and now I want to have a Dr. Who Marathon…

A sci-fi drama set in the near future and perfect for fans of the TV show Fringe and the Spike Jonze film Her. The last thing in the world Alex wanted was an X5, the latest in realistic androids. But when Ada is dropped into his life, will Alex keep her? Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148356.

BLACK SCIENCE #1
Grant McKay, former member of The Anarchistic Order of Scientists, has finally done the impossible: he has deciphered Black Science and punched through the barriers of reality. But what lies beyond the veil is not epiphany, but chaos. Now Grant and his team are lost, living ghosts shipwrecked on an infinite ocean of alien worlds, barreling through the long-forgotten, ancient, and unimaginable dark realms. The only way is forward. The only question is how far are they willing to go, and how much can they endure, to get home again? Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148357.

Welcome to the most brutal high school on Earth, where the world’s top crime families send the next generation of assassins to be trained. Murder is an art. Killing is a craft. At King’s Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts, the dagger in your back isn’t always metaphorical, nor is your fellow classmates’ poison. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148358.

EAST OF WEST #1
He has been called Abaddon. The Reaper. Fool’s Bane. The Grey Walker. You speak his name in hushed tones, if at all. You fear him and all he represents. He is the ultimate state of all things. He is Death. But, in the past, Death found peace. For his betrayal, the rest of the Four Horsemen snatched happiness away from him forever. Now, Death rides with Crow and Wolf in search of those who wronged him. We would tell you to pray, but it wouldn’t do any good. You have earned what is coming to you. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148359.

LAZARUS #1
In a dystopian near-future, government is a quaint concept, resources are coveted, and possession is 100% of the law. A handful of Families rule, jealously guarding what they have and exploiting the Waste who struggle to survive in their domains. Forever Carlyle defends her family’s holdings through deception and force as their protector, their Lazarus. Shot dead defending the family home, Forever’s day goes downhill from there… Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148360.

MANIFEST DESTINY #1
In 1804, Captain Meriwether Lewis and Second Lieutenant William Clark set out on an expedition to explore the uncharted American frontier. This is the story of what they discovered lurking in the wilds… Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148361.

PRETTY DEADLY #1
Sandman meets Preacher in PRETTY DEADLY, where Death’s daughter rides the wind on a horse made of smoke and her face bears the skull marks of her father. Her tale of retribution is as beautifully lush as it is unflinchingly savage. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148362.

SEX CRIMINALS #1
Suzie’s a normal girl with an extraordinary ability: when she has sex, she stops time. One night she meets Jon… who has the same gift. And so they do what any other sex-having, time-stopping, couple would do: they rob banks. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148363.

VELVET #1
When the world’s best secret agent is killed, Velvet Templeton, the Personal Assistant to the Director of the Agency, is drawn off her desk and back into the field for the first time in nearly 20 years… and is immediately caught in a web of mystery, murder and high-octane action. Sexy and provocative, VELVET is a dark twist on the spy genre. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148364.

ZERO #1
Edward Zero is the perfect execution machine—a spy who breaks the rules to get things done. When a stolen device appears in the center of a long-running conflict, Zero comes to retrieve it. The problem is, the device is inside a living, breathing, bio-modified terrorist and there’s an entire army after it. Image Firsts edition available with Diamond code FEB148365.
