Happy Things #3

I’m currently away with work so I didn’t think I was going to manage to post this week, but happily I’ve been left alone for a bit and have a working internet connection, so I thought I’d better make the most of it.

Unfortunately, this week has been as rubbish as the last and so I only have one happy thing to post, but it’s a doozy.

My happiest thing by far last week was the BBC following through on the implied promise they’d been making all season, and cast Jodie Whittaker as The Doctor in Doctor Who. I’ll admit, I was absolutely convinced they would go for their usual ‘safe’ choice (and I also know that this is only a teeny step forward and casting a WoC would have been an even better choice), but they surprised me and I screamed with happiness. Also, Jodie Whittaker is awesome and I love her.

So there you have my one happy thing from the last week. (OK, this is a lie. I was also happy that #UKYAChat was back after a hiatus and it was glorious, but it also took place when I’d just got back from a funeral, so I wasn’t in the best headspace.) What made you happy this week? Are you as chuffed as I am that we have a female Doctor? Let me know in the comments!

    1. It’s as good a reason as any! And the showrunner is also changing (to Chris Chibnall, also late of Broadchurch), so it’s probably a good place to jump on. Then once you’re hooked, you can go back and catch up on all the awesomeness of the last 12 years (and more!) 😀
