Doctor Who has been on our screens for 50 years now, and the year of 2013 marks the occasion! The program has borrowed itself into British culture, along with expanding worldwide (as we now see on BBC America). But what exactly has kept the show going for so long? A mad man in a box, traveling the universe and all of time and space? Of course. Oh and, he’s an Alien. There’s a surprise.
From the planet Gallifrey, The Doctor is a ‘Time Lord’. Yes, it’s more or less what it says on the box. Oh, but with two hearts and can practically never die. Talking of which, the T.A.R.D.I.S. That’s Time And Relative Dimension In Space. And yes, it’s bigger on the inside. The Doctor’s fascinating ability to regenerate into a new body and a new face when injured or near death allows for the arrival of a new face, new actor and some-times a new companion.
I found this video awesome for re-creating all the regeneration’s of The Doctor from William Hartnel all the way to Matt Smith.
Since the reboot of the program on the BBC in 2005, the show has hosted the role of The Doctor to three, special, crazy and ever so talented individuals. And did they bring it back with a bang? Oh yes they did! Introducing number 9, 10 and 11 eg. Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith. (see below, it’s all the same man!)
Below is a video I really enjoy of no.9 and 10, along with Rose and Martha’s inputs!
I also found the Doctor’s theme’s are also iconic, inspiring and truley magical to the program Below is a medley of 9-11’s theme’s.
