What does Glenn do in his spare time? He's probably the most over-scheduled person working today. He spends over four hours of the day broadcasting on radio or TV, then he meets with company executives, and then in the remaining hours he comes up with new projects for his staff. Sometimes he eats - but his diet has gotten so restrictive it would be tough to classify that as a "break". But every once in a while, he is able to lay down on the couch with Tania and the kids to watch a little TV. Lately, he's been watching 'Dr. Who' on the BBC. Why does he like the show so much? He talked about it a little on the radio show today, as well as what he thought of some of the changes to the casting.
"Never thought I would like that show," Glenn said. In fact, he called Pat a "freak" for liking it and asking him to give it a shot. But that all changed when he started watching.
"Some of the best television story-telling I have ever seen," Glenn said.
"It's unreal and creative and different. People sometimes takes a while to get used to the different nature of Dr. Who, because it's not normal," Pat added.
Glenn recommended that people start watching when David Tennant takes over the role of The Doctor (second season, 2005). He said that things really picked up when Steven Moffat, a long time fan and writer for the show, became the showrunner in 2008 and Matt Smith assumed the role of The Doctor in 2010.
When Moffat took over, Glenn said "the story, Dr. Who even changes, everything changes, and it
becomes one literally, I think, one of the best story-telling experiences I have ever seen on television."
Glenn said he hopes to be able to talk to Moffat on camera about the show, which has become a fixture of his TV viewing.
