FRT: I hate it when I'm reading a novel, and I'm completely immersed, and then I get this meta notion that I'm reading so I'm aware of reading and I completely lose the flow of the book.

That is a lot of Who. A lot. The movie is 1996.

And hoshit but the two new episodes are amazing and you should see them. (I'd marathon series 5 first, though, if you haven't seen it. Technically you don't need to, but the emotional impact is just that much bigger if you've seen season 31.)
