Doctor Who

Filed under: General @ 3:57 pm


I remember watching Doctor Who in college when Tom Baker was the doctor. Those were the days before VCR recording and TiVo, so we had to rush home to ensure we caught that next episode.

Tom Baker’s Doctor Who was smart, logical, and a little crazy. And always with the striped double-length scarf.





I was thrilled when I found out that the BBC was starting Doctor Who again and we added it to our TiVo choices. I got my oldest daughter so hooked on it that she found most of the old episodes on the internet (even some from the 1960’s) and watched them.

So it was not surprising that we took the opportunity to include Doctor Who in our trip to London in January, 2009.



Our first Doctor Who stop was a special exhibit at Earl’s Court in London. My daughter even got a brief ride in the TARDIS….




… and had to fight off the Dalek. Exterminate!!!

Second stop was the Doctor Who Exhibition in Cardiff.

Final stop was seeing the current Doctor Who (David Tennant) in Hamlet. (No cameras allowed during the play, so we just took a picture with the play bill during intermission.) 





Are you a Doctor Who fan? Share your thoughts on Doctor Who.

    I worked for Prime Computer and helped design these computers that Tom Baker and assistant made an ad for in the late early 80’s:

    I question both the character and caliber of any developer who DOESN’T love Dr Who.

    I’d LOVE to go there. That would be so awesome…
