I kid you not, this is my birthday cake! I”m going to explode!
A cache of never-before-seen Doctor Who scripts, including one for a serial that was replaced by the first Daleks story, have been unearthed in Herne Bay in Kent.
They were discovered by local prop maker Jason Onion, who found them while researching the town’s links with the BBC sci-fi drama.
The scripts were nestled in a box of papers belonging to the late writer and TARDIS creator Anthony Coburn, who used to live in Herne Bay.
Onion said that he wasn’t initially aware of the significance of his find and believed the scripts to be copies of existing Doctor Who screenplays.
“With the consent of Anthony’s wife, Joan Coburn-Moon, and other family members, the family lent me a box of his work and I saw the scripts, but put them to one side,” he told thisiskent.co.uk. “When I scanned the cover later I realised it didn’t have the right title for the first episode.
"I had a look and as soon as I saw the first few pages I knew it was not the episode that had been televised. I just sat there, and stared and stared. I wanted to cover them with glass. They are unbelievably precious, and I had them in my hand.”
The collection includes two versions of Doctor Who’s very first episode, An Unearthly Child, an alternative second episode and another three scripts including a story about the Masters of Luxor, which was replaced by 1963’s The Daleks.
DOCTOR WHO IS COMING BACK THIS MONTH I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND HOW EXCITED I AM.
My friend gave me a TARDIS and I just had a lot of Doctor Who feelings yesterday and so these happened.
I’m also officially done with white and black nail polish. Never again will I buy it when I have perfectly fine acrylics that have more paint and cost less.
And I won’t go through entire bottles in less than a month.
Cade Scott, nine, from West Boldon, was inspired to fill an empty wine bottle with a Doctor Who postcard and let it loose at Roker Harbour on August 26, 2011, after hearing of a miracle missive that had made its way to Norway.
Cade’s bottle went from home turf to Perth, where it provided an extra Christmas gift to an unsuspecting Aussie.
The Doctor Who postcard was swiftly despatched back to the borough on January 7, with a note from its recipient, Matthew Elam, reaching Cade on Saturday, January 12.
my birthday card from Bambi

I made these awesome Doctor Who and Supernatural themed stencils and used the to decorate my brownie! If you want any of these stencils just message me your email address and I can send them to you. I also have some Sherlock stencils that I didn’t use if you would like those as well just tell me.
And lots and lots of patience.
Last December I was marathoning Series 5 and I kept wondering what actors the BBC could invite for the next series. And, just because I was feeling like it, I tweeted this:
In January, Hugh Bonneville then actually tweeted about his involvement on the show. I was so happy, I had to tweet it. And the man himself then replied to me!!
Awesomest moment ever.
