Tempus edax rerum

Yesterday, I've finally watched the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special "The Day of the Doctor" recorded the previous day on my PVR from Space (and still available to watch online; although it is also available on iTunes). Apparently, it was widely watched and quite appreciated by the fans. Although not by all since I read an opinion article of a guy who couldn't understand the appeal of such a cheap and childish show... I thought the show was great, so I totally disagree.

Yes, Doctor Who is just a simple show for kids and that's exactly why it is so powerful. It reaches to our deepest and strongest imagination. It is whatever we want it to be. It reflects our hopes and fears, our own reality (and I am not the only one to think that), it amazes us, it is sublime. It is the simplest and the most complex story of all time. It is a paradox. And that's why I love it so much, despite the fact that all its parts, separately, tell me I should not, but all together they blow my mind. It is funny, but it makes me sad. It is so simple that I cannot comprehend it sometimes. We should not fight it, but just let go and enjoy...

Just for the love of the Doctor.
