Doctor Who: Looking Back at 47 Days #34 – Recognizable Guest Stars

A few years ago, I did a series of 47 daily posts which all looked at different questions related to the revival series of Doctor Who, focusing on stuff I like about the show.

On the other hand, there’s something sort of encouraging when you know that a show you are just spending on time on isn’t going to go on forever. And of course, sometimes it’s a blessing thing because the show itself isn’t all that good. Continue reading Cancelled TV Show Calvacade (Forever, Selfie, Shark)
