'Twilight' passed like a fever through the sophisticated reader and the unsophisticated reader alike. People devoured those books in single sittings, over weekends, with a kind of raw intensity that is rare.
'Doctor Who' rewrites your brain because at first when you watch it, you think, 'That doesn't make sense.'
