Binging Who in all forms in preparation for the premier. Missy as the Master was my favorite! I should be reading a book club book but I‘m totally fixated right now 🤷‍♀️ #holidayreads #holdiaymovie #wintergames

Slajaunie Love the Doctor! 4w
CaitZ Missy was cool. I wish they'd bring her back 4w
TheBookbabeblog84 I‘d love to see Missy with Jodie. I think they would be a good match up. 4w

BethM @CaitZ @TheBookbabeblog84 I agree! But I‘m pretty sure she‘s dead dead given the way it happened. :( 4w
TheBookbabeblog84 @BethM i know 😭. But there could also be an adventure where the Doctor crosses path with her in some way. That show know no bounds lol. 4w

Have to share this every Christmas! Donna Noble‘s Granddad is one of my all time favorite characters on Doctor Who. He was just so endearing. Love him!

Branwen YAASSSSSS!!!! Same here! I watch my two fave Doctor Who Christmas specials EVERY CHRISTMAS! It doesn't feel like the holidays until I do! I knew you loved Star Wars and Star Trek, but I didn't know you were a Who fan too! 😍 Just when I thought you couldn't be any more amazing than you already are! 💕 1mo

Meaw_catlady @DaveGreen7777 🥰🥰🥰 thanks friend ! 1mo
Branwen @Meaw_catlady YES! YES! THAT IS ONE OF THEM! AND I CRY EVERY TIME I WATCH IT TOO! IT'S SO MOVING! 😍 My other favorite is also with the 11th Doctor and it's the one where he takes this woman and her kids (the time period is during ww2) to this planet with trees that grow their own ornaments and it's SO GOOD! I do love Firefly! @DaveGreen7777 is the one who got me into that! We watched it together last year! 💕🚀 1mo
sudi Donna's grandad is the best, and the christmas episodes are always so emotional 😢 1mo
Meaw_catlady @Branwen I‘ve seen so much doctor who I can‘t recall that episode! I‘m gonna have to find it and watch it and think of you!!! ❤️❤️❤️ 1mo
Meaw_catlady @sudi I think Donna was the best as well. Her ending is so tragic . One day I want to see the return of Doctor Donna. I cry everytime! 1mo
Branwen @Meaw_catlady It's at the beginning of the 7th season, and it's called The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe. Definately one of my favorites! 😍 1mo

This was a great group of stories with the twelve Doctors. My favorites were with the 11th (Matt Smith) and the 12th (Peter Capaldi) 💙

sudi it's so ironic that they have this book for Christmas because usually the Christmas episode ends on a sad note. with the next doctor coming in. 2mo

BookwormAHN @MidnightBookGirl The 9th Doctor's tale was good and during I believe it was the episode The Doctor Dances, he mentions getting Rose a red bike when she was 12 and this is that tale. 2mo

I know some people don't like Capaldi as the doctor but I have to admit that he's grown on me as 12 and I'll be sad to see him go. However, I can't wait to see Jodie Whittaker's run and Chibnall take over the reins.

BookwormAHN I agree I really enjoyed Capaldi this last season but I can't waite for the new season 💙 2y
Texreader My daughter was sobbing to see him go when she watched it today. We got to see Capaldi at a Comicon in Dallas last year and she loves him. 2y
rabbitprincess @Texreader I was sobbing right along with your daughter! I love Capaldi too ♥️♥️😭😭 2y
Laura317 I fell in love with the 12th Doctor in the first episode. I‘ve enjoyed all the Doctors and look forward to the 13th 💙 2y

It's the last Dr Whosday of the Peter Capaldi era. On Christmas, the Twelfth Doctor will hand over the TARDIS key to his successor and the Jodie Whittaker era begins! Capaldi has given us three amazing seasons, and his Doctor will go down as one of the all time greats. As sad as it is to see him go, at least we have one more hour of his Doctor to enjoy.

GrilledCheeseSamurai I'm gonna miss Capaldi, alot, but holy smokes am I excited to see what they do with Jodi Whittaker! 2y

3.5⭐️ overall, so I will call this a pick. The New Who Doctors' stories felt stronger than the classic ones in terms of capturing the Doctors' characters. Best title: Sontar's Little Helpers 😂 Best illustrations: from 4's and 12's stories. Worth borrowing from the library for sure.

#Holiday for #LyricalApril My Doctor Who Christmas short story collections and the best Halloween book ever.

There's one more Doctor Who Christmas collection out there (Ghosts of Christmas)... I just need the price to drop below $200. Like, way below.

Emiller 😍😍 3y
Cinfhen That looks like a really fun collection! Dang, $200 for one book???😱😤🤔 3y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk @Cinfhen The old Short Trips collections are out of print and there are a lot of superfan collectors so most have been snapped up and the rest are sold at unreasonable prices. I mostly stick to the ones I can find in the 20-40 dollar range. (edited) 3y
Dogearedcopy Wow! I had no idea about The Short Trips collections and their premium prices! Though, I have learned that many of the audio dramas are a little "spendy" and not available on Audible. I'm having to order from Book Depository for now. 3y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk @Dogearedcopy I've gone down the collector rabbit hole with the Short Trips collections. I'm up to 24 but I think price will keep a full set out of reach. 3y

readinginthedark @BethM Firefly is my favorite show ever. It's kind of a sci-fi dystopian western. I didn't know they have brick and mortar stores! I just found their website and got way too excited. 😊 3y
BethM @readinginthedark if it's on Netflix I'll have to check it out. They have three stores in the Chicago area and then NY or NJ I think.. and maybe London? 3y

Last review of the year! A fun read that reminded me of why I love Doctor Who in the first place. My personal favorite stories were 1, 6, and 11 (none of which are my favorite Doctors, funnily), but there were other enjoyable ones in there too. Also, some great artwork. Recommend enjoying with a cup of tea in front of the tree. 😊☕📖

"Time is the thief of memory. How true, he thought, as his magical ship slipped between the present and the past, between tomorrow and yesterday, between the not-yet-now and the not-quite-then. Time is infinite, but memory is not. All memories fade, in time."
A solid short story collection which I found quite enjoyable and one of the better ones I've read so far. A great holiday read for Whovians both young and old! ? just one more day

This was so disappointing. The best that could be said of most of the stories is that they weren't completely dreadful. There were a couple I really enjoyed (6, 8, & 11), but I hated the stories for 2, 9, and 10. This will not become an annual holiday reread, and that makes me sad.

jpmcwisemorgan Biscuits. That makes me sad. 3y
DGRachel @jpmcwisemorgan It may just be me, as I seem to be in the minority. It has good ratings on Goodreads and quite a few "picks" on Litsy. It just wasn't a good fit for me. 3y

A late Christmas read and making a late gift 😁 I have no other excuse than I'm a procrastinator and I had been very sick for the most part.
I just saw the book the kitties have been using as a pillow and wanted to read something cozy and geeky since I'm still in the holiday groove! I really liked the first two stories and I'm feeling the nostalgia for the 1st and 2nd Doctors and corresponding companions. Loved Barbara and Ian! 💕

Happy Dr Whosday! This week we got a title for this year's Christmas special: The Return of Doctor Mysterio! This is cool because Doctor Mysterio is the translated title of the series in Mexico. The episode will feature a team up with a superhero (?!) and be set in New York (for the first time since Angels Take Manhattan). Generally, I find the Christmas specials to be hit or miss, but after 12 months with no new Who I'm pretty excited about it.
