I'm not a Dr. Who person myself. When I was in high school, I had a problem with insomnia, and I watched it--in reruns--occasionally on the 12" black and white my parents let me keep in my room. (Can you imagine trying to explain that to a high school kid today?) It was a privilege, and when I got in trouble (which occurred with surprising frequency), the TV had to be given up. (My sister had a small color TV, but that was later, and it was the one we hooked the computer up to.) (Seriously, life has gotten so strange.)
So my experience of Dr. Who was of the original doctor, and I came in late. All the reruns in the world weren't going to help me sort it out. Of course if the original Dr. had been a little more David Tenant, I might have tried a little harder. (This is also the same period that I got into The Prisoner, and my sister and I would watch it on this tiny b&w sitting on the hardwood floor of my bedroom because it was so crazy and crazy-different from anything we had seen on TV.) (Patrick McGoohan then showed up with incredible regularity on Columbo, one of my favorite shows.)
At any rate, Dr. Who is 50. And someone scoured the internet and brought together 10 Cross-stitch projects with which to celebrate. My favorite comment is about this Tenth Doctor pattern by BabyMish, "The finished design measures 4 inches wide by 7 inches high when worked on 14-count Aida fabric, so it shouldn’t take you too long to complete." Yeah, except the part where there are a million stitches because it is 28 square inches of solid stitching! I guess it all depends on the definition of "too long." Enjoy!
