Just been for a wander around my office to discuss the upcoming 50th Anniversary of Dr Who.
The excitement is building. I had managed to contain it until a family dinner last night where it seemed next Sunday’s ( we are in Australia) 50th Anniversary episode of Dr Who was the only topic of conversation.
We covered the important questions. Who is your favourite Doctor? What was your favourite adventure? Can there ever be a better assistant than Romana? It easily filled a whole family dinner!
Well here are some of my answers.
I always like the current Doctor best. As a poster on the BBC’s #savetheday site says it’s OK to have a favourite and like them all.
The Key to Time series was definitely my favourite, although Blink was fantastic.
No, there can’t be a better assistant than Romana, although I have a super soft spot for each of Sarah-Jane, Rose and Amy Pond.
Funnily enough there wasn’t agreement on much of this over dinner.
As a survivor of Dr Who since the beginning, I can’t believe that it’s been fifty years since my sister and I first started watching from behind the lounge chair, something one of our daughters also did when she was little. She still says Dr Who gives her nightmares.
Just a few more days and it will be up early to watch the Day of the Doctor. It’s going to be awesome!
