Oh my goodness...I've been wondering when they were going to announce the new Doctor! I'm so nervous and excited. :) Hoping it'll be available to watch online!

(This is the first regeneration I'm experiencing firsthand. :)

I love Matt Smith so much, I'm really sad he's leaving, but I'm extremely eager to find out who the new Doctor will be!

By the way, I found your blog through the contributors to Femnista list, and I liked your article on Lewis and Hathaway! I didn't really get into the one show I first saw, but my sister wants to watch them again, and your article made me interested to watch them with her.

I'm still confused over how he's going to regenerate if he already died without regenerating but okay... ;)

I was scheduled to be at a church function Sunday afternoon. I've told them I can't make it as something important has unexpectedly come up. (Believe me, THIS is important!)

@Lizzie - Welcome to the blog!! :) I'm so glad you liked my little piece on Lewis & Hathaway, I had a lot of fun revisiting some older episodes in order to write it. I hope you enjoy the show even more this time around...I think it is a worthwhile investment. :)

#Tasha - You and me both... ;)

@Shaz - HA! I hear that! ;)

@Rissi - BEST NEWS EVER IMO!!! :)
