Doctor . . . Who . . . ?
I realize that the actual anniversary was a few days ago but you know me, I’m always late to the party.
In any case, when Doctor Who was first resurrected (regenerated?) 10 years ago, I was living in Scotland, finishing up work on my ^^incredibly useful^^ History degree. Naturally, the BBC ran a huge selection of previous seasons on the run up to the premier. I had never seen a single episode and so anyone who has watched that grand tradition of camp you will know that I was . . . well, I wasn’t as excited about meeting the new Doctor as everyone else was.
So much so in fact, that I didn’t catch Doctor Who until I had moved home months later. Maybe even years. Tennant may have taken over by the time I got around to catching some episodes, but I honestly can’t remember. When the bug bit me though, it bit me hard. I have every episode of the new reboot and there’s barely a heartstring which has not been pulled.
And so when I say that this fan-made anniversary video is amazing, please don’t take it as faint praise. And excuse me while I go find some tissues and spend some time visiting with some of my old friends!
