Nerd post alert! If you’re not into things like Doctor Who and sci-fi and old British television, you might not want to read on.
You little rebel. I like you.
Yes, I have started back at the beginning of Doctor Who, way back in 1963 with the first Doctor, William Hartnell. It’s an interesting bit of trivia that the very first episode was set to broadcast on the very day that President John F. Kennedy was assasinated on November 22, 1963.
If you’re into the new Doctor Who, the old episodes take some getting used to. The special effects and sets aren’t quite as polished, but they give the old series a quaintness (at least in my opinion). Plus the old episodes are story-driven rather than special effects-driven anyway.
I love that first Tardis team of the Doctor, Susan, Ian, and Barbara. They made a great team that worked well together.
I still think it’s a shame that so many of the early episodes have been lost to history, but I’ll take what I can get.
Back to your regularly scheduled blog posts tomorrow.
