Looks pretty cool! I'll have to try and watch that tonight if BBC America is showing it. I only watch the show occasionally (the thought of trying to catch up is kind of daunting), but I've liked what I've seen of it, especially the Christmas Carol from a couple years back (which was one of the most brilliant uses of time travel I've ever seen).

EDIT: Just checked and BBC America is showing it in an hour and a half. Thanks for the heads up!

Yup, it's showing at exactly the same time around the world, based on it being 7:50 in the UK.
(6:50am in Sydney, 2:50pm in New York etc.)

OK - so my Dr Who memory.......

In the 1970's Dr Who was all the rage and the good people at Weetabix were giving away a Dr Who "press out and keep" cardboard figurine with each packet of their tasty wheat based breakfast cereal.

Our junior school had the intake from two villages - Burton Latimer and Barton Seagrave. I was from the considerably more sophisticated (or so we thought) Barton Seagrave, but the worldwide Weetabaix factory was in Burton. In fact if you could smell Weetabix in our garden - then you knew it was going to rain (seriously, Burton was to the North, or something - not sure of the science here.).

So at our school a good proportion of the kid's parents worked at the Weetabix factory and consequently the playground was awash with Dr Who cards. When I say awash, I really mean it. There would be clouds of Cybermen cards blowing against the fence, mixed with some sea devils.

I genuinely remember trying to swap 100 gold daleks for a davros.

Here's an image of the cards to prove I'm not making this up.... http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-370s22Owan0/UONkVY46rDI/AAAAAAAACVo/aUs0sS5xfUA/s1600/Weetabix+dalek+cards.jpg

(They could have made more effort with that Yeti !)


I wonder what happened to my collection.....

Sorry - just googled this and on ebay....

I mean, for god's sake - what people will buy !

I watched dr who reruns when i was rather young we only really got doctor who in canada well I guess also in the 70's I remember I hated the first doctor replacement because I was so used to the one doctor that had gotten me hooked on the show. I watched all doctors except the first two (not available in canada eh) but i did watch them when they published them later on. My dad of course was the one that introduced me to him as he knew of the series before he moved to canada . Anyhow I am actually shocked when I hear of some of the younger generation never hearing of it because its a household sort of thing to me like star trek and star wars.

Hey those brought back memories. Mind you, I saw episode 2 and have always regretted missing episode 1 as I wondered why Barbara and Ian followed Susan back to the Tardis anyway.

I watched it more or less avidly up until John Pertwee's arrival when it became increasingly tedious as he seemed permanently trapped on Earth and surrounded by those useless UNIT troops who never learned that their rifles were ineffective against Daleks, Cybermen, Zarbis, Ice Warriors, Yeti...you name it. They were the precursors of Star Trek's Red Shirts or Star Wars' Stormtroopers in that regard.


My fave aliens were the Mechanoids

I only really got back into it with the arrival of David Tennant (ok maybe it was because of Billy Piper - best assistant since Leela

P.S. Seems my decision was a common one:- http://www.express.co.uk/news/showbiz/443320/David-Tennant-and-Billie-Piper-are-voted-the-best-for-Doctor-Who-50th-anniversary

If you still haven't watched the first episode, you can find it on youtube. It's called 'An unearthly child'

Great clip Mr D

Great use of the hero characters, it seems the Sinister character is a popular choice
Now, Muvizu HQ, can we drop the arms as a second choice of standing pose?

Yeah, Dr who, you gotta love it, I'm a Tom Baker man myself, i remember crapping myself when it used to end on a close up of Tom baker, THOSE EYES!!
top stories though!, thats what it's all about.
Good video mate, well done!

Okay, I've got a confession to make. Two actually - I stopped watching after Tom Baker left. Well, watched but struggled to care about Peter Davidson's lame version, then lost all hope at the sight of Colin Baker (what were they thinking?).


Secondly, my brother built the Daleks used in the BBC drama "An Adventure In Time & Space" as well as trundling around inside the lead one (since he built them, he insisted on being Dalek Wrangler). He sold one of the Daleks to the writer Mark Gatiss, incidentally. Still got 2 in storage I think, if anyone has thousands to spend on a full size Dalek you can pedal around in

oh my I have to tell my father I know someone who can sell him an original dalek of course he would have liked a original original one not a new original one but either way I bet he would get a kick from that (i doubt at his age he would import once he is almost 80 but still ) :P

Also actually I liked that docu-drama more then the Dr. Who special is that lame or what?

I stopped watching after hrm also tom baker but it was more that I ran out of time as i worked 12 hour night shifts so maybe that had something to do with it. My favourite one believe it or not was Jon Pertwee I was very disappointed when he was replaced and I never got to see the original doctor I started getting to watch it from doctor #2 as a rerun catch up as I watched doctor #3 and started to loose interest during tom baker.

Yeah, most people lost interest after Tom Baker.
Speaking of which, there is a sort of mini episode featuring the, err, not quite so brilliant doctors. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01m3kfy

I second this!

Fun fact - The original title sequence was made by pointing a camera at a screen showing what the camera was filming. To make your face go into it, you just had to go between the camera and screen.

The Dr Who weekend is over, a weekend which has seen me devastated by ...TIME! It went a little like this, there am I watching 'An Adventure In Time & Space' when my 18 year old daughter pipes up with "Look how spartan everything is, no technology anywhere...you were alive then weren't you Dad?" "Yes dear hiding behind the sofa" my reply; but the damage has already been done. I can't shake the feeling of how comfortable and familiar everything from the 60's seemed to be. To complicate matters I've seen more Doctors this weekend than in the NHS! And certainly more austerity than a plague of Tories could create.


John Pertwee was my Doctor and I can remember being thought of as a little 'odd' by my school mates who all had the 'Batmobile' corgi car model while I had the Doctor's 'Bessie', a far cooler vehicle than the boring old Batmobile if you ask me. I have to add on the subject of cars that all of my cars are called 'Bessie'!


The weekend finished with me watching the episode of DrWho...fantastic...Brilliant....in fact the whole weekend was a celebration of what is 'right' with British writing and programme making!
