The (earlier every year, overly dramatic) whirlwind of hype has begun and the nation is counting down to the latest series of Doctor Who. The sad bastards. Here's what I'm particularly looking forward to:

Matt Smith. Well, obviously. We all love Matt Smith. Hopefully, he'll get naked again. Not only for the hotness, but it would also mean that I could use the phrase "Matt Smith naked" in another blog post title and get hundreds more views from dirty-minded googlers. In the space of a few weeks, my Christopher and his Kind review has become my most read article ever.

Neil Gaiman. Admittedly, I haven't read any of his work, but, in order to defend my nerd credentials, I feel obliged to be excited about his episode.

The new villains. The way Steven Moffat can really make his mark on the Whoniverse (I believe that's a word) is to introduce a new major villain to compete with the iconic status of the Daleks and the Cybermen. Indeed it seems, with the promotional material showing off the Silence, he is attempting to do so. Moffat's creations are always good at utilising the viewers' fears, a trend which, judging from this promotional image, he's continuing with the Silence. This time, it's the fear of unironed clothing. Just look at all the creases... if you can cope with it! The scruffy bugger.

Hats. Lots of hats. Stetsons, space suit hats, pirate hats, Nazi hats, Sontar-hats, hopefully even a fez. Hats are cool.

In the meantime, Whovians looking to keep themselves busy should consider going out and getting a fucking social life helping out this fellow nerd (both a science fiction and actual science nerd) who is writing a book on Doctor Who and the autism spectrum and would like people to respond to a research questionnaire. It seems like an interesting project; I've had a go myself and thought I might as well share my answers:
