You know the sound the TARDIS makes? That wheezing, groaning? That sound brings hope wherever it goes.

I grew up being only faintly aware of this British show called Doctor Who. It sounded like a cultural phenomenon, and I planned to one day seek it out.
At the beginning of 2011, I was just about to graduate high school and in need of some way to spend my summer that didn’t involve stressing about college. I started googling the show and found quite a lot of pictures of David Tennant (with maybe a few of Matt Smith, but I didn’t immediately recognize those as being from the same show. After all, I didn’t know about regeneration at the time!).
I had a picture in the back of my mind of a man with curly hair and a very long scarf, and was trying to reconcile that with the spiky-haired, suited gentlemen I saw before me. I was also quite confused as to how he appeared so young, when I could swear that this show had been around since I was a kid, perhaps longer.
Imagine my surprise when I started watching and the Doctor was wearing a leather jacket. I had no idea how Christopher Eccleston could possibly turn into Mr. Spiky Hair.
So I did some more research.
Isn’t that good?
