Which fictional character would you adopt into your extended family to make gatherings more interesting?
For me, this is a no-brainer: I’d invite the Doctor, my favorite Gallifreyan Time Lord, and not just for the selfish reason of having his company for myself. He’d have great stories to tell about his travels and adventures, and those stories would be very likely to rock the homebody sensibilities and conservative attitudes of many members of my extended family. I’m shocking enough, sometimes, just by denying the existence of God and by professing no desire for marriage, mortgage, and children. There are some faces I’d love to see the looks on in the wake of a story from a guy who basically lives in his transdimensional car and bums around the universe getting into trouble.
