(Doctor) Who Ya Gonna Call?

If you’ve already watched Doctor Who and didn’t like it I’m probably not going to win you over. I get it; it’s not for everyone! But if you’ve been avoiding new Doctor Who because the words “Doctor Who” conjure up memories of some guy on PBS in a long scarf and a weird hat, read on. I was like you once. To be specific, I was like you up until October of 2015.... read more

I have to admit here in front of you all that my mother was right and I was wrong. In 2001, an engineer got off a slow-moving train to correctly line a switch. He thought he had set the train’s dynamic braking system but he hadn’t. The unmanned... read more
