Not nearly as viral as Gangnam Style…yet!
This week will see the start of new series premiere reviews over on my Screen Burn™ column at Inveterate Media Junkies. Keep an eye out for those from now till the middle of October when premiere month comes to a close. And make sure to follow my Screen Burn™ twitter account: @ScreenBurnIMJ for live tweets of all the premieres and the returning shows I’ve waited all summer for.
But there is a second reason to start doing this now. As soon as the fall premieres are over, I will be starting a massive Doctor Who 50th Celebration in addition to my normal columns on Screen Burn™. My goal is watch all 50 years of Doctor Who, one Doctor at a time. For the first eight, I’ll watch one storyline a day (The Unearthly Child, The Mind Robber, Destiny of the Daleks, etc.) Doing so will, with the exception of the Tom Baker years, let me watch one Doctor’s set of shows a month. When I get to the current series, I’ll watch 1 or 2 episodes a day (I’m considering two-part episodes, like Aliens in London and World War 3, as one episode) which will still give me a Doctor a month.
After each I go through all the shows of one Doctor, I’ll write about him and how each has added to the mythos of the Whoverse. I will also be live tweeting as I watch all of these shows on the Screen Burn™ twitter account.
So be ready for October 22nd and the start of a long journey with The Doctor.
P.s. For those not fans of Doctor Who, don’t worry. I will still be doing month Screen Burn™ posts about everything else on TV.
