August 24, 2014, OTTAWA — In April 2013, introducing my reviews of new Who 7th series, I started off apologetic. "I thought I was done talking Doctor Who," I wrote.

None of that this year. For better and for worse, I'm a fan. Which means I'm a little bit obsessed, and not likely to stop gnawing this bone any time soon.

Today is the big day. The return of Doctor Who to the small screen for 2014, and it looks I'll be blogging every episode yet again. Feel free to argue and debate, but keep it polite and without ad hominems. As others of noted of their blogs, this ain't a democracy.

Meanwhile, drop by in 24 hours (or less) and we can talk Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman and, yes, Steven Moffat. I'm crossing my fingers I'll have happier things to say than I did last year.
