Doctor Who (the TV show) is fifty years old

…in case you haven’t heard. Yesterday was the phenomenal “Day of the Doctor” special with both Matt Smith (the current incarnation of the character) and David Tennant (the tenth incarnation). I haven’t seen it yet. But I know it’s phenomenal because it’s Doctor Who.

I actually haven’t seen any of the seventh season so far, but I can’t wait to get caught up. Smith is not my favorite Doctor, but I have come to appreciate him more over the past couple of years. I never liked River Song, but the way that played out was quite nice.

One of the great things about the BBC is that they aren’t afraid to spoof themselves from time to time, as evidenced in “The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot,” starring several former versions of the Doctor. It can be watched right here on BBC One’s website.

Happy anniversary, Doctor Who…here’s hoping there will be fifty more!

Meet the Doctor’s newest companion…

the newest passenger in the TARDISJenna-Louise Coleman will be traveling through space and time in the TARDIS with Matt Smith reprising his role as Doctor Who, beginning with the Christmas special. It has been known for some time that Karen Gillan would not be returning next season, but today her replacement has been officially announced. The character’s name is still unknown at this point, as is her species.

Coleman’s prior work includes the role of Connie in Captain America: The First Avenger.

The official Twitter feed for Doctor Who (@bbcdoctorwho) has been blowing up with news (and some minor spoilers) over the past several minutes. I suggest following it for up-to-date information as it is made available.
