I honestly didn’t think it would happen this soon.

Peter Capaldi has announced that he will be leaving Doctor Who after the 2017 Christmas Special.


I was hoping that he’d play the Doctor for at least as long as Tom Baker.  But he’ll have done the requisite 3 series/seasons that David Tennant and Matt Smith had both done, though Tennant technically did a ‘4th’ season of specials.

Odds have been posted on who the next actor to take the role will be, with my personal pick (Rory Kinnear) currently at 7:1.

I’m saddened, truth be told, that Capaldi is leaving.  Depending on how his final series goes, I think he’ll be my second favorite Doctor, after Baker and slightly ahead of, if not just tied with, Christopher Eccleston.

For now, I’ll just say thank you, Doctor.

Day Off

For MLKJr day, I went to go see Rogue One, for my 5th time.

I think I cried a bit more than I had before, because of the ending.  It’s the first time I’ve seen the film after Carrie Fisher passed away.

After the movie I treated myself to some ice cream, and then picked up some Doctor Who blu-rays from Best Buy, and some groceries from Lucky’s.

In between those two shopping excursions, I met up with my sister Jen, who gave me a couple of gifts from Hawaii for myself and Dad.

Once I got home I settled in to watch the Warriors kick the Cav’s asses in a 126-91 game.

Right now I’m blogging while I endure a slight headache.

How was your day?
