Happy 50th Birthday Doctor Who!
From William Hartnell to Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi this show has impacted generations of people around the world. It has influenced science fiction fans and inspired people to dream in different dimensions. Its a great show then and now.
I don’t typically do animated .gifs (I am a rarity on Tumblr) but this one seems to be appropriate for the day and its well done.
You go away for the day and you come home to the interwebs blowing up about Matt Smith leaving “Doctor Who”. Smith has been “The Doctor” for four seasons and has taken the show into a bright future.
Now there is a help wanted sign outside the TARDIS and there will be a casting call to see who will be the next “Doctor”. I don’t know who will be chosen and you know I want it to be a surprise. He needs to be older I think, perhaps someone who is very young at heart. I am wondering if they would consider someone of color or another ethnicity.
From what I hear he will be leaving at the Christmas special. This time next year we will be watching episodes of that new Doctor and Clara if she decides to stick around. I wish Matt well and thank him for his great performances.
Coming Soon: Doctor Who: The Bells of St. John. It’s the first regular episode featuring new companion Clara Oswald Oswin. I am looking forward to the second part of season 8. Welcome back Team Tardis!
If you could get into a time machine (Tardis, Delorean…etc) and go back in time to eat at a favorite restaurant that is now closed what would it be?
Doctor Who: Farewell to the Ponds – Amy and Rory have become fixtures in the Tardis. I believe they are the longest serving companions since the series restarted (please correct if I am wrong).
Fezzes are red, the Tardis is blue. Bowties are cool and so are you! – The 11th Doctor as played by Matt Smith.
There is a lot of running on “Doctor Who” What would be the official foot wear of “The Doctor” and his companions?
