Doctor Who at Fifty: Facts for the New Fan | GeekMom

Doctor Who celebrates it’s fiftieth year in 2013. Last week saw the forty-ninth anniversary of it’s first episode, a mere twenty five minutes in which the Doctor was played by William Hartnell, age fifty-five. I have been watching avidly since Sylvester McCoy’s incarnation, and have dabbled in other seasons over the years.
There is something about Peter Davison’s Doctor, maybe it’s the attire, that I have a soft spot for, and I will forever love Colin Baker, the man who was only recently replaced by Matt Smith as my dad’s favorite Doctor. Having visited the old Doctor Who museum in Llangollen many times, I also have a fondness for Jon Pertwee. You cannot help it after actually getting to see Bessie in person.
For those of you who are Eccleston converts to the show, here are a few interesting tidbits from across fifty years that I hope will accentuate the enjoyment of the recent years….
