Ahh. dr who hipsters fascinated with the UK.:(
Not sure if this message is supposed to be directed at me or just a blanket statement in general soooooo….shall I address both?
I agree that, yes, Doctor Who hipsters are in abundance at the moment. I think that Matt/Karen/Arthur’s personal styles have somehow kind of absorbed into the show, therefore making it more relatable to the hipster crowd. The sudden burst of popularity in the US has also encouraged many of these said hipsters to become curious about the UK, because many of them may not have had much exposure to UK culture or television series. I miss David Tennant and his converse, and as a lover of classic Doctor Who as well, I’m disappointed in the lack of respect for the previous Doctors and I dislike the hipster-y direction of the show. But hey, every show has its ups and downs and clearly it’s working for most people, so who am I to say it’s wrong?
If you’re referring to me personally, then I’m not sure what to say except that you don’t know me well, and you must not have taken a good look at my blog. I’m primarily about The Mighty Boosh and IT Crowd, both of which have had a much greater impact on my interest in the UK than Doctor Who. I’m not sure how you’re getting hipster out of it either, unless being a hipster means sitting around in your house all day smoking pot and serial watching tv shows in a dirty t-shirt and underwear while surviving solely on pizza and Jimmy Johns. Sorry to have offended you with my apparent Doctor Who fueled hipster anglophilia, I guess?
But if this message was a totally innocent conversation stater, then I’m very sorry to have gone off on you and I hope you’ll forgive me and do that whole friend thing ^_^
