Today I’m recommending Doctor Who once again, because yes, it’s that time of year. Doctor Who is back on our screens and well into its ninth series with only two or three more episodes to go.
Many people were unsure about Capaldi’s doctor last series, but I think he’s now well-adjusted and has settled into the role quite successfully. I love his unique relationship with his companion Clara, who keeps him balanced when he could quite easily go off on one or be mean or too extravagant.
The episodes this series have been quite incredible with interesting plots and characters. There have also been a lot of two-parters which is actually really good so we can gain more detail from each story. There have been ups and downs as you would expect with any good TV show and… there have been incredible speeches from both the Doctor and Clara.
I’ve been loving these episodes massive amounts so… If you’ve missed this series, or never watched Doctor Who, it is never too late to jump in and I hope you really enjoy it!
This is a slightly different, and shorter, recommendation today, but I want to talk about FunkoPop! Figures.
Funko is an American company which was founded in 1998 to make pop-culture toys. They make a huge range of varying figures of many different characters from pop-culture over the years such as Ghostbusters, Batman comics, The Walking Dead, Zelda, Ace Ventura, Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Chucky, Elvis, Doctor Who, Back to the Future, Toy Story, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Monsters Inc.… There are so many from all sorts of TV shows, games, films and even some celebrities.
I’ve been interested in these figures for a little while now ever since I’ve seen them featured in many YouTubers’ videos and also at my local HMV store. The reason why I’ve been looking on the internet for them recently is because I’m hoping to finally buy one of these figures for my birthday, as a small treat to myself I suppose.
Some of the ones I want are: Groot (From Guardians of the Galaxy), Robin (Batman and Robin), Bernadette (The Big Bang Theory), Jack Burton (Big Trouble in Little China), Buffy (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Pooh (Winnie the Pooh) and Elsa (Frozen). During writing this post, I have even found a range of Johnny Depp characters that I would also like such as Captain Jack (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Edward Scissorhands.
Places where I have found to buy them online are: www.forbiddenplanet.com, www.amazon.co.uk/www.amazon.com and of course, http://funko.com/.
