Since the witching season is finally upon us, here’s a list of 5 of the best witching families to revisit this time of year.

Within the Doctor Who universe, there are many things to make us geek out and get pumped up. I could do an entire list on all the great things about Doctor Who. Today, though, I’d like to talk about just one of the terrific elements of the series. That one thing is the absolute awesomeness of getting a brand new Doctor!
It just so happens that we are currently experiencing this exact phenomenon. We have less than 3 weeks until Season 11 of Doctor Who premiers worldwide with the first adventure of the 13th Doctor, Jodie Whittaker. The anticipation is high and fans all over the world are figuratively holding their breath as we wait to see exactly who this new Doctor will be and how her personality will differ from every Doctor who came before.
Already, there is controversy stirring as the Doctor has switched gender for the first time in the 55-year history of the series. However, the switch is not unprecedented in the show’s lore. And even aside from that massive change, there are all the questions, mysteries, and unknowns that come with any new Doctor, be she female or male.
