Done! Just in time for the “Doctor Who,” Series Seven premiere this past Saturday. And what a doozy that premiere was, too!
In case you are living under a rock, like I was until last fall, on “Doctor Who,” The Doctor travels in a time machine called a T.A.R.D.I.S., which is an abbreviation for Time And Relative Dimension In Space. And it is styled – on the outside – to look like a British police call box. You know. So it blends in everywhere it lands. Or transports to. Or whatever you call arriving via time machine.
Mari is now a huge Whovian. Never before has a TV show pushed all the buttons of a 14-year-old girl. Combine a galactic adventure with friendship and science, add a heart-wrenching love affair and you’ve got a hit. With nary a vampire in sight!
So of course she needs some socks to properly display her geeky fangirl status.
