It’s only been a short few weeks since the announcement of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor Who which is very exciting and I think he’ll do a sterling job. Being born in 1978 however, places me firmly in the Tom ‘fancy a jelly baby’ Baker camp as ‘my doctor’ but I have a long standing love of Jon Pertwee and to be honest, they are all brilliant aren’t they really. So many years of entertainment make a pretty diverse board as part of the 101 project, you can check it out HERE.
Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television programme produced by the BBC. The programme depicts the adventures of a Time Lord—a time-travelling humanoid alien known as the Doctor. He explores the universe in his TARDIS (acronym: Time and Relative Dimensions in Space), a sentient time-travelling space ship. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. Along with a succession of companions, the Doctor faces a variety of foes while working to save civilisations, help ordinary people, and right wrongs.
The show has received recognition as one of Britain’s finest television programmes, winning the 2006 British Academy Television Award for Best Drama Series and five consecutive (2005–10) awards at the National Television Awards during Russell T Davies’s tenure as Executive Producer. In 2011, Matt Smith became the first Doctor to be nominated for a BAFTA Television Award for Best Actor. In 2013, the Peabody Awards honoured Doctor Who with an Institutional Peabody “for evolving with technology and the times like nothing else in the known television universe.” The programme is listed in Guinness World Records as the longest-running science fiction television show in the world and as the “most successful” science fiction series of all time—based on its over-all broadcast ratings, DVD and book sales, and iTunes traffic. During its original run, it was recognised for its imaginative stories, creative low-budget special effects, and pioneering use of electronic music (originally produced by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop).
The show is a significant part of British popular culture and elsewhere it has become a cult television favourite. The show has influenced generations of British television professionals, many of whom grew up watching the series. The programme originally ran from 1963 to 1989. (Wikipedia)
This board on the 101 project is my favourite so far and will almost definitely continue to be in my top 5 as the other boards continue to be populated with pins. Although I love all the comic book characters and various artists I have chosen to collect images of, Dr Who has a special place in my heart along with (I suspect), a majority of the UK and beyond.
