No worries! I'm just spreading the Who love. I know how it feels to be stuck in a stupid country where apparently Memorial Day is more important than Doctor Who. How does airing new Doctor Who even affect Memorial Day? UGH!
I think America’s fallen soldiers would be offended if they knew BBC America was depriving their countrymen of new Doctor Who.
