One of my earliest recollections of seeing Doctor Who was in front of the telly with Jon Pertwee playing the iconic role. To see his face float down, deeper into that dimensional vortex is a recollection that I will carry with me till my end of days. And what I saw was very colourful!
But for this special day, 50 years ago, that was when this series hit the airwaves to change a nation, if not the face of British pop culture forever. Thank you for all the many years of memories. Thank you for showing there is always hope. And thanks for surviving to this new century to show that your message has never changed, even though the producers and writers have.
Happy Birthday Doctor Who! May you last for many more years to come!
