This fangirl Friday is a bit late because I was distracted by Hell on Wheels. I have a good chunk of season three to catch up on.
The good news about Downton Abbey keeps coming. Word has it that the latest character to be making an appearance will be Virginia Wolf. It makes sense, she started off as a reporter and our Edith is working as a reporter as well. I love seeing them pull in more historical figures.
In other news, there are going to be more movies from the wizarding world. J.K. Rowling is creating a spinoff movie, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them.” Why is this so awesome? Well if your recall this was one of the textbooks used by Hogwarts. By making this spinoff, we get more wonderful wizarding world time AND the joy of having a whole new story line to obsess about.
And what Fangirl Friday would be complete without an update on recent Doctor Who news. It’s been confirmed that the 5th Doctor will make an appearance in some shape or form in the episode. I am both excited and a wee bit disappointed. I was really hoping that they would include either Doctors 7 or 8. Preferably 8, I think there is a lot of great territory the writers can explore how the Doctor went from goofy hero to dark and rather cranky. However, I am excited that they are including an original. They need to include some more originals, you can’t have the show without giving a periodic shout out to the originals.
And If you haven’t notices, at the bottom of my page, I have a countdown to the 50th anniversary. It will be a wonderful Whovian Friend’s Giving. The best friend and I are currently discussing and finalizing a menu for the big event.
