Though they have been removed from most high streets across the UK, in Glasgow you can still find Police boxes, the kind that the TARDIS disguised itself as back in 1963 when it landed in Totter’s Lane junkyard.
There is a police box at 27 Sauchiehall Street in the heart of Glasgow.
At Christmas we will have Doctor Who and he will be in Victorian London. Here is the prequel.
I’ve always thought that a spin off series based on Madam Vastra (she’s the Silurian (lizard person)) would be very interesting. A period drama with sic-fi overtones, almost steampunk. Certainly not something you see much of on television now.
A quick happy birthday to Doctor Who which is 48 years old today.
It was November 23rd 1963 when the programme first came to our screens, I don’t think anyone at the time thought that nearly fifty years later that it would still be the highlight for many people on a Saturday night in front of the television.
Even when it was cancelled in 1989 I wasn’t expecting to see it ever return, more so after the failure of the joint version with Fox. Since it came back in 2005 (was that really six years ago now) I have enjoyed all the series and think the BBC have done a really good job. I do enjoy the programme and am looking forward to the Christmas special.
