50 years celebrating the Rescuer

Now that the dust has settled on the excitement of the Day of the Doctor anniversary celebration, it’s time to ponder how this new epic plot twist affects the parable we have noted so far…..if indeed at all. In the anniversary special the three Doctors managed not only to save the humans from shape shifting […]

Give me a day like this one!

Some of the best Christopher Eccelston moments occur in this double episode from series 1, set in London’s World War 2 Blitz (The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, series 1/9 &1/10). Rose Tyler: Look at you, beaming away like you’re Father Christmas! The Doctor: Who says I’m not?. . . red-bicycle-when-you-were-twelve? Rose Tyler: What? But the […]

‘No eye has seen…no mind has conceived…’

Doctor Who first appeared at 17:16:20 GMT on 23 November 1963, stepping, not quite fully formed, from the minds of his creators, Sydney Newman, Donald Wilson and Cecil Webber, assisted by Anthony Coburn, David Whitaker and Verity Lambert. Fifty years on, the Doctor’s personal pantheon has grown beyond eighty (writers credited in episodes for television). […]

There he discusses the reasons for Doctor Who‘s popularity.  He says the show is ubiquitous (nice word) and “probably means more to people than it necessarily should. . . It touches people’s […]

Not just in time….

It is a truth (not) universally acknowledged that Tom Baker was the best incarnation of Doctor Who. Certainly even his beginnings were not altogether favorably received.One viewer said, “General opinion was that the new Doctor Who is a loony …” In Who’s fictional universe much has altered over time. Often, changes are occasioned by the […]

You gave me hope….

Hope came knocking at the Doctor’s door in (very) deep space. He opened the TARDIS to see a small glowing cube, which, as he explained to Amy and Rory, is ‘the Time Lord emergency messaging system. In an emergency, we’d wrap up thoughts in psychic containers and send them through time and space….there’s a Time […]
