If You're a Doctor Who Fan

You'll understand why I'm .

I just bought three beautifully matted and framed Van Gogh prints at the thrift store for a total of $9.

The Vincent Van Gogh episode is one of my all time favorites! And it has my very favorite quote from any TV show:
Quote:
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.
And Skater, whenever I see a statue of an angel, I get a little freaked out

I have several itsy little gargoyle statuettes that fit into niches in my book cases or into odd little corners in my cupboards as well as a couple of angel statues that I inherited from my DMIL or were given to me after DSIL passed (they both collected angels). And yes, at night, I sometimes wonder. . .

The Van Gogh episode is just. . .well. I'm tearing up just thinking about it. It displays a very real understanding of mental illness and sympathy for those who suffer from it that I don't think I've ever seen in either television or the movies before, even in well-regarded documentaries. I think sometimes it should be required viewing for anyone with a family member or friend who has a mental illness. Now I'm sniffling again, just thinking about Amy in the art gallery realizing that despite everything Van Gogh did take his own life and the Doctor's understanding that it didn't make their time with him any less meaningful.

Sniff. Now, please excuse me, I'm going to go off and cry while I put up my pictures.

Can you look at them without tearing up? The beauty of his art is multiplied by ten because if the insight Dr. Who gave up.

Congrats on a cool thrift shop buy!

I have watched exactly two episodes of Dr Who. The first one was Blink.

Then last night after seeing this post I went and rounded up the Van Gogh episode. There are no words. I get weepy just thinking about it.

Did I just luck out and see both of THE BEST episodes of this series or are they all pretty dang good? LOL

Big Doctor Who fan here, particularly Doctor number 10. I even took my Ten doll to WDW once and took all sorts of photos. People must have thought I was nuts-I know my niece, who was there with me, thought so.

Oh I know!!! I took my very much younger sister to a museum once after watching that episode. She kept laughing at me on the staute floor because I couldn't stop looking over my shoulder. I couldn't take it I had to leave!

My mom freaked me out at the colosseum in rome when looking at melted old statues "look! They're the weeping angels! Make sure they're not imprinted on you like they did Amy!"

Every time I see an angel statue I immediately think of Blink! "The angels have the phone box."

According to what DH was reading on BBCA, it looks like after 50 years we may finally get to know what the Doctor's name is this season!

My two faves are #5 and #10. Peter Davison and David Tenant. I still find it weird that their in-laws now. It gives a whole new meaning to the ep "The Doctor's Daughter".
