I went to the Silverball Pinball Museum today in New Jersey, and they have machines from over 50 years ago that you can play!!! One of my personal favorites - A Classic Who machine!!!!!!!!! The pinball was released from the TARDIS, and you had to battle the Daleks and the Master :) and if you got a pinball in each spot on the Time Expander, (which I did :D ) It popped up! IT WAS EPIC.
We better reblog this as much as we can 2013 is almost over

Classic Who // New Who Parallels 50th Anniversary Part 2
William Hartnell doing his close to the face hand gestures. Apparently Hartnell gave his fellow actors the same lecture about gesturing close to the face on ‘as live’ television as you never knew when you were going to get a close up.
Hartnell is sometimes criticised for forgetting lines and such but his performance and presence as the Doctor is just so strong. Watch him in scenes, in the background, watch his eyes dart back and forth, the curiosity, the wonder. Watch his hands tremble slightly, and watch as he interrupts with the best precision, and watch how he commands the scenes without saying much at all. When people say that Hartnell is just the actor who forgets his lines we get so sad because acting is so much more than the lines, and when he couldn’t remember, he made up for it with his mannerisms and his physicality and authority.
It didn’t matter that his sentences came out wrong sometimes, he was boss and you’d listen to him. You still believed in him.
