Doctor Who’s Quinquagenary → Doctor Who?

"What’s in a name? Names are just titles. Titles don’t tell you anything." -Tenth Doctor, The Girl in the Fireplace

"You chose yours. The man who makes people better. How sanctimonious is that?" -The Master, The Sound of the Drums

"Look my name, my real name, that is not the point. The name I chose is the Doctor. The name you choose, it’s like a promise you make." -Eleventh Doctor, The Name of the Doctor

The Doctor: Better (and snarkier) than everyone else since 1963.

He has saved your lives so many times and you never even knew he was there. He never stops. He never stays. He never asks to be thanked.

Third Doctor serial ‘Mind of Evil’ restored to color for the first time in 40 years

via DoctorWho.tv:

  • Due to a policy of “junking” video tapes in the 1960s and 70s, the original colour versions of all episodes of The Mind of Evil were lost, with only black and white copies remaining in the archives. Two types of colour restoration were used on this release:
  • Colour recovery was used on episodes 2-6, where the B&W tapes retained the original colour information, hidden in their signal. These were restored by Richard Russell of the Colour Recovery Working Group.
  • Manual colourisation was needed for episode 1, where due to the original colour-to-B&W transfer settings, no hidden colour information existed. Stuart Humphryes manually recoloured every fifth frame (out of 36,000!) in Photoshop, and the information in these “key frames” was then extrapolated out over subsequent frames.

The re-colored version of Mind of Evil is now available on DVD.

A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it is by no means the most interesting.

With five Doctors complete, I can do this homage to the 20th Anniversary special, The Five Doctors!
Sadly Tom Baker didn’t come back for the special, so in homage, here he is in limbo! (and yes, neither did Hartnell since he’d passed away by this time, but I’d like to think it’s him in spirit)

thx for the tip superpsyguy!

So, there’s been a reference to each Doctor’s era in chronological order since The Rings of Akhaten. If this holds true, there should be a mention of Six’s in Nightmare in Silver, and Seven’s in the finale…

BBC Doctor Who Blog - The Return of the Ice Warriors!
The BBC Doctor Who Blog has an excellent write up to prepare you for this weekend’s episode, Cold War:


The Doctor’s next adventure is called Cold War and it explodes onto screens tomorrow (Saturday). The TARDIS lands on a damaged Russian Submarine in 1983 as it spirals out of control, plunging into the ocean depths. An alien creature is loose on board, having escaped from a block of Arctic ice. With tempers flaring and a cargo of nuclear weapons on board, it’s not just the crew but the whole of humanity at stake!  The episode is written by Mark Gatiss (The Unquiet Dead, Night Terrors) so we’re assured of scares, great moments of humour and some unexpected twists… All that, plus the return of the Ice Warriors makes this an umissable episode!
The fearsome Martians made their debut in the Second Doctor adventure The Ice Warriors and were an instant hit, returning about a year later in The Seeds of Death. These two stories established the Ice Warriors as a proud but cruel race, ruthless and relentless when pursuing their goal, which in both instances had been the planet Earth.
But interestingly, when they next crossed the Time Lord’s path in the Third Doctor adventure The Curse of Peladon, they had reformed, renouncing their militaristic ways and eschewing violence except in cases of self-defence. The Ice Warriors’ code of honour came to the fore and they even joined forces with their former foe. Their final appearance to date came in 1974’s The Monster of Peladon in which a rogue faction of Ice Warriors threatened the Doctor.
