DOCTOR WHO Episode 8.01

Watched the season 8 premiere tonight and really enjoyed it: looking forward to more Capaldi!
Meanwhile here’s the episode poster I drew after the episode (sketch included I drew while watching it) - hope you guys dig it.
I’m only sharing tweets for those who are not on twitter and can’t see how passionate and outraged journalists are as they tweet from #Ferguson.
If you are on Twitter, here’s a good roster of people to follow if you want to keep updated.

This will be my first tour away from Atlas. And sure, it will be hard, but it’s all for him. I’d like to share that song with you. " - Claudio Sanchez

From the article:“We would not have this”—he paused—“all this, without the body of knowledge of science.” He added, “And to have people suppress that, ignore that, it’s certainly their First Amendment right, but it’s not in our best interest. And I don’t just mean the people of Kentucky or America, I mean humanity.”
Read and enjoy. If you tuned into the Ham/Nye “debate” you aren’t missing much, but the piece is a nice peek into the personal life of Bill and a reflection of the current state of science illiteracy in America.
