For those who missed it on the cinemas… subtitles in Portuguese!
This is the best explanation I could come up with for why it takes me so long to do updates sometimes when, at other times, I’m typing them up like clockwork.
OH GOD I ANGERED IT
Tumblr is finally snapping, OMG!!!!
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, BBC Future has created an interactive map of his travels through time. Can you guess which Doctor has made the most TARDIS trips? Click here to find out, and click on each trip to see archive video clips and images too.
This interactive image was produced by Information is Beautiful for BBC Future.
This is a really really cool infographic created for BBC Future.
(FYI - at the moment you can’t see it if you’re in the UK. Soz.)
not just followers, everyone.
I’m here if any of you need to talk<3
In honor of the 50th anniversary, here’s links to all of the Classic Doctor Who episodes! Doctors One through Eight are featured here! Enjoy, everyone! If any of the links are broken, please let me know.
So, we talked about many actors who played a part on the Doctor’s history.
I decided that, this time, I’ll talk a little about some of the unspoken heroes, fascinating people who almost became the Time Lord at the TV Show we all grew to know and love!
Hugh David, friend of BBC producer Rex Tucker was considered for the role of the First Doctor, but declined (some accounts say that Verity Lambert, producer of the show at the time, considered the 38 years old actor too young for the part).
Hugh eventually became a Director of two famous Second Doctor’s stories, The Highlanders (the first appearance of Frazer Hines as companion Jamie McCrimmon), and Fury from the Deep (the first appearance of the sonic screwdriver).
Speaking of which, Geoffrey Bayldon, known for working in several shows and comedies during the 1960’s, refused the offer to play both the First and Second Doctor!
This one is kind of cheating, since he eventually made up to it, getting to be the voice of the First Doctor in Doctor Who Unbound - a series that featured hypothetical stories set in variants of the Doctor Who universe with premises fundamentally altered. In Bayldon’s case, they were Auld Mortality and A Storm of Angels, two stories set on the premise of “what if the Doctor hadn’t left Gallifrey with Susan?”.
(Bonus trivia: being 80 years old at the time that A Storm of Angels was recorded, Geoffrey Bayldon is the oldest actor to have played the Doctor in any medium to date!)
Ron Moody, Oscar-nominated actor for playing Fagin in Oliver!, in 1968, refused the offer to be the Third Doctor, in 1969 - which he later confided to his friend, late actress and Forever Companion Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane Smith), that that was a decision he would forever regret.
He eventually played the part of the Duke of Wellington, alongside the Eighth Doctor, in Other Lives, the seventy-seventh monthly Doctor Who audio story produced by Big Finish Productions.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, more to come!
Oh, show, you had one job! Be educational!
Why did you have to be sooooo entertaining? And wonderful? And Awesome? And scary? And thrilling? And…
… the man who expects…
… the man who regrets…
… the man…
… incapable of speaking without flapping his arms about.
To celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary, can this picture of the man that started it all get a million notes?
77 milion people watched it yesterday, what is 1 milion for us. Let’s do this.
One Doctor made the world fall in love with this show - paving the way for a dozen others.
I support this One man.
