Happy Birthday Dr Who

Posted by: Dave In: TV

According to Wikipedia, today is the birthday of Dr. Who. I remember growing up watching Dr Who on the local PBS station thinking the effects were horrible back then, but the stories were always enthralling.

And your favorite Who is who? For me, it would be a difficult choice between Tom Baker and the original William Hartnell, but I’d probably choose Baker.

My main Who-viewing years were college, when the Alabama PBS network ran it every Saturday night at 9. Too bad we never created a drinking game for it; I think sonic screwdrivers and jelly babies would have been major game elements.

Tom Baker is the clear winner in my book, though I’d give high marks to David Tennant and Sylvester McCoy as well. I’d like to see what Sylvester McCoy could’ve done with more material like the newer series.

Best episode ever? “Genesis of the Daleks”, though the more recent “The Empty Child” gets extremely high marks.


  • Dave: Not sure, Bryan, but I'd love to know where Craig lives.
  • Bryan Hanks: What city were those in?

  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
