We are a pretty geeky family, if I do say so myself. We play Dungeons and Dragons (and other RPGs), I cried when Battlestar ended (and when Caprica ended too!), and husband has about five or six full Warhammer armies. My brothers’ entire family (he, his wife, and their four kids) all play Warhammer too. Most of us play WoW.
But probably our biggest geek obsession as a family unit is…
It’s one of the few things that the entire lot of us, all four adults and four kids (Babe is too young for TV), love equally. (I’ve designed and sewn a sexy TARDIS costume for a friend. I’ve even knit a Tom Baker scarf!)
So on Saturday afternoon we joined millions of people around the world as we watched the 50th anniversary special Day of the Doctor. (If you follow me on twitter, you knew this already.) My brother and his family watched it at their house so last night during our pre-Thanksgivingukah dinner it was the first chance we had to discuss it in a group.
My seven-year-old niece said her favorite part was the escape from the Tower of London.
Granted, there is the occasional questionable scene but, from it’s beginning, Doctor Who was always intended to be a family show. I love that’s it’s something fun and often educational that we can geek out to together as a family.
We’re raising a little Whovian here. How do you share your hobbies with your kids?
