Wednesday Meets The Doctor

Posted in Uncategorized

So, remember last year when my daughter was all over the internet for screaming “THE NEW DOCTOR IS A GIRL!” during Jodie Whittaker’s reveal? And remember how any time anyone even mentions Doctor Who since that video seems to pop up? Well, they finally got a chance to meet, thanks to BBC America! You can watch a small portion of the call here (Jodie was incredibly generous with her time and spoke with Wednesday a lot longer than I anticipated). I love everyone who made this happen for my kid, who has literally never been this shy with anyone before.

 

Jodie is The Doctor; she absolutely embodied Eleven’s quote, “You know, nine hundred years of time and space and I’ve never met anybody who wasn’t important before.” She made my daughter feel important and valued and I am ridiculously grateful. This is a moment Wednesday will never, ever forget.

    This was way too adorable. So happy for Wednesday and I think she handled herself really well. I’m not sure I’d be able to form coherent sentences if I met Jodie.

    Totally awesome! That made my week after the spouse’s bout in the ER for amnesia.

        Thanks, Tez! Fortunately most of the 2 to 12 month block of memory was recovered, the only thing she doesn’t remember is the 8 hours around the incident itself. But during that time she had NO short term memory and would forget things that happened or I said 60 seconds before.
