However, I think I'm in mourning. I thought I'd be okay with the regeneration, but instead I completely recoiled from the 20 seconds we got of Ten. I must have fallen rather thoroughly for Nine--or is this reaction normal, when losing one's first Doctor? but apparently I'm not.
Recommendations of really good fic or Dr. Who novels featuring Nine would be extremely welcome.
As would any thoughts from old school fans as to what I should go back and watch over the time until they air the next season here in the States, and where I might get my hands on such.
Oh! I wanted to ask this question, too, in reference to historical Dr. Who (rj_anderson, this is specifically directed at you, actually):
Okay. Could someone fill me in on what we know about the TARDIS? Because I could swear that was more than just Rose talking. My Doctor, indeed. What do we know about the heart of the TARDIS, and had it ever been seen or talked about before "BoomTown"?
Because I stepped into the edge of Who fandom through rj_anderson's 11th Doctor stories, and she had to get her lovely TARDIS-as-transcendent stuff somewhere, and this whole thing reminded me of those stories so, so much.
