I found myself getting curious about the various ages of different actors and creators involved with Doctor Who over the years, and so today we have a little timeline that tells us throughout the years of when people were born, when they debuted on the show, and when they died (for those no longer living).
Doctor Who – All The Years is a quick examination of what was happening in the world of Doctor Who over all its years of existence. I’m not attempting to create a thorough history–just brief look back at the real-life timeline of my favorite TV show. Go back to the beginning and read about 1963 here.Continue reading Doctor Who – All the Years – 1988
Doctor Who has long been my favorite show, but in recent years rewatchings of old episodes have been few and far between. Lately though I have been making my way through a lot of the classic stories–either ones I already owned or ones I bought for my birthday or Christmas–enjoying them with one or two of my nerdier daughters.Continue reading The Dalek Invasion of Earth [Classic Doctor Who]

But, it turns out I was wrong, but now we hear that Russell T. Davies is returning to helm the program in 2023!

Today–November 12, 2021–is the 57th anniversary of something pretty important in the world of Doctor Who: the publication of the Dr. Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks. Or as it is also known, the first ever Doctor Who novelization, and indeed, the first ever Doctor Who novel of any sort.

Lately, I’ve been going through some other movies and shows and finding where there are actors or creative talent that they have in common with Doctor Who.
Also recently, I finished going through all the “Emma Peel” episodes of the 1960s TV show The Avengers and blogging about each one (starting here), including noting when its guest cast were also people who made appearances in Doctor Who. I was struck by how much crossover there was.
