I love the Third Doctor, I’m gonna miss him when I finish his episodes
2013 is DOCTOR WHO’s 50th Anniversary. Each month, BBC AMERICA takes the TARDIS back in time with Brand New Specials on all eleven Doctors.
This month, it’s Third Doctor JON PERTWEE!
Don’t miss the Premiere of the third DOCTOR WHO: THE DOCTORS REVISITED Special, plus the classic Third Doctor storyline “Spearhead from Space” *** Sunday March 31 at 8/7c *** only on BBC America.
Take an in-depth look at the third incarnation of the truly timeless Time Lord, who brought action and stunts to the series. With exclusive interviews with lead writer & executive producer STEVEN MOFFAT, executive producer CAROLINE SKINNER, Tenth Doctor DAVID TENNANT, Season Six guest star HUGH BONNEVILLE (Downton Abbey) and more!
Then, in the story “Spearhead from Space,” a swarm of meteorites fall on the sleepy English countryside, bringing with them a terrible new threat to mankind: the Nestene consciousness - a disembodied alien intelligence with an affinity for plastic. The Doctor is forced to race against time, in order to stop humanity from being replaced by a generation of terrifying plastic replicas.
Um I just found out that in addition to the Bells of St. John airing next Saturday, BBC AMERICA IS BASICALLY DOING A DOCTOR WHO MARATHON ALL WEEKEND WHAT
This is 100% true.
Also of note: there’s a Torchwood marathon beginning late Tuesday, March 26 and running all day Wednesday.
And we’re premiering the new Doctor Who Third Doctor Revisited Special on Sunday, March 31.
Doctor Who: Prisoners Of Time, Issue #3
Ambassadors of Death. Let the picspam commence!
New Doctor Kawaii featuring KARATE DOCTOR!
Jon Pertwee Doctor did an awful lot of karate chopping in his time.
So, Ilwin had a bad day and I know she likes Jo and Three so I drew this for her. I know you’ve gone to bed now, dear, but at least you can see this in the morning and maybe you’ll be a little happier? :)
Been sitting in my folder for such a long time.
Commission from Isidore.

Supposed to have all 11 doctors + Rose, Jack, Mickey, Donna, Martha,
Idris & the Ponds.
Terribly missing the other half! >w<)o!
Celebrating March in style with the Third Doctor!
Well, fairly complete anyway. You can’t blame the writers of Doctor Who for seeking inspiration from the moon from time to time. Frankly, when the entire universe, now and always, is your playpen for making up dramas, you’re going to occasionally cast about you for inspiration, seizing upon anything you can see and starting from there. We’re just lucky no one has seriously pitched an alien race that looks like a laptop on a desk with a big empty white page on its screen, although it’s bound to happen sooner or later.
So, here is a reasonably concise list of the times the Doctor has gone to visit the moon, or referred to the moon, or being involved in a thing that is influenced heavily by the moon. I say reasonably because a) this only applies to TV stories and b) I might’ve missed one, or two.
Let’s see, shall we?
Doctor Who: Dimensions in Time
The collection marks the 50th anniversary of sci-fi show Doctor Who, with all 11 Doctors getting their own first class stamp.
Four of the show’s most notorious villains, including the Daleks and the Cybermen, star on the second class set.
The show first ran from 1963 to 1989. A successful revival returned it to Saturday night schedules in 2005.
Andrew Hammond of the Royal Mail said the commemorative selection “pay tribute to the brilliant actors that have played the Doctor over the years, as well as the adversaries that helped make the show so popular”
