DOCTOR WHO IS FIFTY YEARS OLD
Yes it was fifty years ago, on 23rd November 1963, that the very first episode of Dr Who was shown on BBC. Tonight they are showing a special episode to mark the fifty year anniversary – I’m looking forward to it! I’m pretty sure I didn’t see the first episode when it aired because we didn’t have a television, but I do remember seeing lots of the original adventures, probably at my relatives’ houses. My favourite Doctor was the fourth, Tom Baker, until recently when David Tennant, as the tenth Doctor, took over and vied for my affections.
The anniversary is such a momentous event that Google has even marked it with a special Doodle, which they are calling a Whodle, and which could easily waste an hour of your day if you click on it. Google Maps already has a Tardis in street view, which is fun.
Here’s a picture of all the Doctors – do you have a favourite?
