In 2013, Doctor Who will celebrate it’s 50th Anniversary. There is lots of talk about this exciting celebration. We hear whispers of a unique and special celebration to commemorate a special occasion in Sci-Fi, let alone television history. Doctor Who is certainly a British treasure and if it weren’t the reboot in 2005 – there is a good chance it would have stayed dormant after it’s popularity began to dwindle in the 1990s. We can thank Davies, Moffatt, Gatiss and various cast and crew for it’s continued longevity and inspiration to Sci-Fi fans, new and old/young and old, across the world. Doctor Who has become bigger and has a larger International fan base than ever seen before. Heck, in the latest adventures of Doctor Who, the 11th Doctor, played by Matt Smith, went with his companions to America. Doctor Who in America? Who would have seen that coming.
Blastr (SyFy’s infoblog) reports that Tom Baker is going to reprise the role of his “Doctor” for the 50th Anniversary. So, wrap yourself in your colorful long scarves fellow Whovians, pocket some jelly babies, and jump into the Tardis for the ride of your lives.
As for the rest of what the celebration, Moffatt and crew are keeping it all hush hush. Though some speculate that the 50th Anniversary will be the send off for Matt Smith despite Matt Smith continuously saying he wants to play The Doctor forever.
Homo sapiens. What an inventive, invincible species. It’s only a few million years since they crawled up out of the mud and learned to walk. Puny, defenceless bipeds. They’ve survived flood, famine and plague. They’ve survived cosmic wars and holocausts. And now, here they are, out among the stars, waiting to begin a new life. Ready to outsit eternity. They’re indomitable. Indomitable. ~ Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker)
So stay tuned fellow bipeds, stay tuned.
