If you're not a Dr. Who fan, please forgive me, as this next post will not make much sense.
Oh, okay, I'll fill you in; Dr. Who is a sci-fi/fantasy show that airs in Britain, and is about a time-traveling man who calls himself the "Doctor". No one knows his name, thence the Dr. "Who". (Yes, I know, terrible pun).
Anyway, as I live in the USA it takes me a few days to get the episodes after they air in Britain. Last night hubby and I watched it, and were thrilled to see the writers of the show acknowledge Harry Potter! In the episode!
Here's a short version of some dialogue after they find themselves in Elizabethan England:
Jones: Isn't this all a bit "Harry Potter" and all?
Dr. Who: Oh yes. Just wait till you read book 7. I cried. (Remember he's a time traveler)
Then, at the end of the episode, Shakespeare has to banish three witches (hmm, this is a terrible summary of the plot, isn't it?), he comes up with a sonnet on the spot (as curses simply must rhyme), and cannot think of the last rhyming word, which Jones supplies for him - "Expelliarmus!"
Okay, just take my word for it, if you like Harry Potter, you'll probably like Dr. Who too. And what could possibly be better than them both!
And, as this is primarily a knit a long, let me assure you that my fingers were busy flying along with the witches!
