The Age Of Time-Lords

| Related | April 12, 2012

(I’m spending some time babysitting my cousin’s son, who is about five years old. I don’t see him very often, so I’ve picked up on the toy he’s playing with to make a conversation.)

Me: “Oh, cool. Is that a Slitheen model? I love Doctor Who, do you?”

(My cousin gives me a funny look and carries on playing, ignoring me.)

Me: “I don’t like the Slitheens though, they were nasty! I liked the Sycorax, the baddies in the Christmas episode. Did you see them?”

Cousin: matter-of-factly* “You can’t like Doctor Who.”

Me: “Why on earth not?”

Cousin: “You’re old.”

(I am 17.)
