The Mind Robber + color.
Dignity: the hallmark of a Time Lord.
Just one of about 78,491 reasons why I adore this man. I don’t think it’s ever occurred to him to take himself remotely seriously.
something is very wrong with this photo and it’s just downright disturbing tbh
The Doctor : “You are wonderful”
Romana : “Suppose I am. I’ve never really thought about it.”
100 favourite One era moments- 99- A Happy Christmas to all of you at home!
A rather unusual moment from a rather unusual episode, the Feast of Steven. But we don’t think we can have our countdown (especially as we’re getting close to Christmas) without this moment from 1965. Firstly its the first Doctor Who episode to be broadcast on Christmas Day, but unlike today’s festive offerings and specially marketed Christmas episodes, this episode simply fell on a Saturday Christmas Day slot and so was in the middle of an epic 12 part Dalek story. It actually received the lowest viewers of the whole serial but still got a rather decent viewership. (Perhaps people were too busy eating their turkeys and seeing family to watch it, and of course no recording or i-player for these fans!)
But its special to us because of course the First Doctor breaks the fourth wall and wishes the audience a merry Christmas. And although it’s now missing and we’ve technically never ‘seen’ it, the idea that on that Christmas Day, Hartnell himself looked at the camera and wished his fans a wonderful day, well that just makes us feel squealy.
And here’s David Bradley’s take on that 1965 Christmas message. Oh David! (x)
