Imagine you're cable dies right before Doctor Who...
I woke up so excited. I had friends coming over to watch it with me. I cleaned my house. I decorated it with Doctor Who themed stuff. I even made Cassandra sugar cookies.
At around 11:30, I got back from the grocery store, and my husband turned on the TV to get ready to watch.
And nothing. Blank screen, with a tiny red x on it. We unplugged it a dozen times. And finally AT&T confirmed it, our cable box was dead. And of course they can’t come fix it today.
And I want you to picture looking up at the clock, and knowing that right then, whovians everywhere we’re seeing the opening of the 50th anniversary special. And that all you can see is a black screen.
