Don't blink! Only joking, you can really. Whatever Doctor Who says tonight, you are perfectly safe to blink when you watch it. Because it's a telly programme, and no nasty statue things are going to leap out of the screen and touch you and send you back in time, even if it was in 3D. In fact, I suggest that you blink, because not blinking is bad for your eyes. I wonder whether Doctor Who has ever given any other bad advice?
Yes. Yes he has. He said you weren't to let the water touch you. Not one drop. But you'd very quickly die of dehydration and bad, bad skin if you followed that advice. Proper doctors says you should drink at least a certain amount of water each day, because you see, there's no mysterious Martian entities in it going to give you cracked skin around the mouth and funny eyes. It's lack of water that will do that. Anything else?
Oh yeah. Shadows. Don't let shadows touch you, he says. I can tell you that shadows have touched me plenty of times and I've never turned into a skellington and started repeating myself.
But it's not all bad. When he says you can never trust the Daleks he is right. Never buy insurance off a Dalek, however good the policy appears to be, they are devious little shits. Is that racist? Sorry. I'm sure some of them are very nice. No, that can't be all nice, except that one that sold me the dodgy policy. No, sorry, that's judgemental, it had probably had a tough life, and low self-esteem and stuff.
So watch tonight, if you like. Enjoy it, by all means. But blink all you want. I promise you it will be alright.
that's all from me for now
see you around
