Those that know me or have been following my blog since its inception would recognise the importance that date would have for me.
Dr Who aired their 50th anniversary special episode, The Day of the Doctor, in 80 countries around the world simultaneously. Meaning that this little Aussie was up and tuned into tv at 6.50am on a SUNDAY!!! Usually I am lucky to crawl out of bed by 9.00am on a Sunday as that is my designated sleep in time, an attempt to catch up on the sleep I miss during the week thanks to my
addiction love for SecondLife.
Curling up on the sofa, hugging a rather large and stronger than usual cup of coffee I was in awe as three doctors filled my screen. The repore between them fantastic, leaving no doubt at how realisic the conversation between a present, past and future self would be.
Everyone has a favourite “doctor”, usually being the one that introduced them to the Dr Who series. For me although having watched Dr Who from the 70’s and having a fondness for Tom Baker (Doctor 4) who has a cameo appearance in this special episode my favourite is Doctor 10 played by David Tennant. Known as the ladies man doctor let me say he can park his Tardis out the front of my house anytime!
Given the complexity of Dr Who the only thing I’m going to say about this special episode is aside from the usual battle with alien visitors the writing team planted the necessary twists to ensure Dr Who will be gracing our screens for many more years to come, which makes this Whovian very happy indeed.
With a new Doctor taking over the Tardis this Christmas it gives a perfect chance for those never fortune enough to have enjoyed the series to join a worldwide fan base of over 77 million. Each waiting eagerly for their weekly time travelling adventure.
*With the Doctor able to regenerate, this great trailer highlights the time of each 11 Doctors so far, giving a taste of the action which has made Dr Who become the longest running Si-Fi show ever.
