Today is the day, across all the multi-verses today is the day. I have listen to, watched, recorded and sat the dark late at night to see all of the multitude of BBC programmes on TV and Radio to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. I could dribble on about the programme and about the books, the gifts and gadgets and the other items across the years that have form a part of my life from this mighty science fiction show. But I won’t. I will just say that since I was a wee lad its been a part of me. I have gone to exhibitions, met the cast, got autographs and that is saying something. I waited with the rest of my generation through the long 1990’s for it to return and it did in time for my own children.
From the brand new (tonight!) to the very oldest in flickering black and white Dr Who is a programme unlike any other on television. Its fans and devotees among the best of Humanity (those I have met anyway) and its lore so diverse that it has covered more ground than any other science fiction series. It has tackled issues wide and far.
So tune in tonight and if you are not in Great Britain then I feel sorry for you this time. License Fee is worth it today!
