This Open Thread is Rewatching Doctor Who

Rumor has it that Doctor Who may get pulled off Netflix Instant as of February 1, so time for a marathon! 

I’m still trying to decide if I should bother with Torchwood: Miracle Day, which may also be on the chopping block. I don’t think anyone liked it, but I kinda feel like I should give it a go if I finish with 9 and 10. Thoughts?

Meanwhile, enjoy some sassy Nine and Harkness from my current episode!

Although Doctor Who is set to expire in February, it’s likely that it will be renewed after the negotiations between Netflix and BBC. Granted, that’s all just speculation on my part, but I rather think Netflix gets a good amount of streams from people watching/rewatching the series, and would want to keep that going (especially when season 8 is available, since it was apparently the highest rated season so far.)

Oh. Harkness. I’ve recently discovered (yes, I’m late to the party, I know) that Pinterest has a wealth of Doctor Who handsomeness. It is really quite wonderful.

I have been, sort-of, marathon watching Cougar Town, and it’s been strangely lovely to binge watch a TV programme!
