- Prepare 1 classic science fiction television program. Combine 1 alien with a doctorate, 1 time-traveling police box, and 1+ human companion(s). Pepper all over with monsters (or pepper pot monsters) and season to taste with awesomeness.
- Bring to a simmer and heat for 5 decades. Stir occasionally and replace alien and/or human companion(s) every 1-to-7 years to preserve flavor.
- While hot, portion out 800+ servings of classic science fiction television program and offer to an unappreciative Internet, mostly comprised of fair-weather fans and cynical message board contributors. Allow ingrates to add armchair criticism, cynical complaints, and vitriolic nitpicks to the mix, thereby tainting the recipe for everyone else. (These additions are best served stale, with a dollop of self-satisfaction and a slice of ham-handedness and/or actual ham.)
- Once finished, regenerate and start again. Repeat steps 1 – 4.
In all seriousness, though, don’t listen to the naysayers, Doctor Who. You’re still beautiful after all these years. And welcome to the newest Time Lord, Peter Capaldi. Long may ye reign. Ooh-wee-oooooooooh!
