It might not sound like much to you, dear reader, but today I did something that I haven't done in, oh, nearly a year...

I grabbed a Doctor Who novel to read on the train and cued up Orbis - an Eight/Lucie story that has been languishing on my iPod since I bought it.

It's been almost a year since I've done either of those things. sure, I saw an eps or two at conventions but, at home, the books and DVDs were getting quite dusty.

You would think that, during massive upheavals, Doctor Who would be a welcome distraction but, strangely enough, it wasn't. Indeed, I found myself feeling being quite avoidant of the whole thing - fan conventions aside.

I think it was displaced anger. I didn't want to hear about worlds being saved while mine was falling apart. Usually, I'm a sucker for the (generally) optimistic world-view put about by DW stories but that has not been the case over the past year.

It certainly wasn't fair of me to take out my anger on a fictional character but, then again, I've lashed out at pretty much everything within range, so why should it have been any different with fandom.

Orbis was silly fun - I think I've heard it before, but it was such a long time ago that it makes sense to start the series over again. Much better, though, was my actual enjoyment of the recording.

Maybe a (small) corner has just been turned.
