...or simply to pretend that your life is about to change.
That, in fact, you are about to see a large blue police box appear beside you with an odd creaking (banging? squawking?) noise. You will step inside, and you'll be startled. Maybe even a little afraid. But the Doctor will be there, and you'll know that nothing too terrible can befall you when he is near.
Sometimes, all a girl wants is a sonic screwdriver.
But sometimes, all she gets is a set of cat whiskers and a party hat. (Side note: I was not drunk.)
Which are undeniably cool, but not quite up to scratch... (hahahaha get it? Cats scratch? OMG I'm hilarious. And brilliant. No wonder the Doctor is coming to get me.)
Sorry to leave you... but I have planets to save.
Happy 2013, humans!
