Doctor Who and a New Year
“Doctor Who” ranks pretty high on my list of ultimate sci-fi series–in fact, it is probably the ultimate Steampunk sci-fi series of all time, hands down. And well it should be, as it has been running for over 45 years, albeit with a sizeable gap between the classic and the new. The new series is good, but the nostalgia in me still loves the classic Doctor Who, especially the 4th Doctor (you know, Tom Baker). At any rate, this year wraps up the last year with David Tennant as the 10th Doctor, and I have no idea if the 11th Doctor will be a good one or not, we’ll just have to wait and see.
In the mean time, here’s a little tribute to Doctor Who I ran across which is pretty neat.
And here’s a 2.5 minute video history of the 1-8th Doctors, which is well worth watching. Just remember, all you who are just now tuning in to the New Who, the Classic was just as good–perhaps even better.
Finally, just for fun, here’s what Doctor Who might be like if done as a Japanese Anime!
Enjoy, and have a happy New Year!
