If anyone hasn't watched the mini-sode "Night Of The Doctor" yet I would respectfully suggest doing so IMMEDIATELY, if possible while avoiding all spoilers because HOLY HECK IT WILL BLOW YOUR TINY MIND*!!!!!!

It's Dr Who's 50th Anniversary, so why not download this New 50th anniversary version of The Hector Collectors now-dated song about Northern Soul DJ Ian Levine's quest for missing Dr Who episodes "Quest For Web Of Fear 5", backed with an updated version "Quest For Masterplan 8". - all produced by Camera Obscura bassist Gavin Dunbar!

Ace! Is it Doctor Who o'clock yet?

I watched An Adventure In Time And Space last night and it was lovely. It's made me want to rewatch all of the William Hartnell stories.

I did think though that while they had the Marco Polo sets and cast and costumes they could have recreated it. Of all the missing First Doctor stories it's the one I want to see the most.

that was probably advisable given how awful the two hour thing on bbc3 was

I'm out with a bunch of people who haven't seen it yet and it's the only thing to want talk about - it's so frustrating!

Pretty good, yeah. I think it's a sign that all episodes from now on should be double-episodes or part of a proper story arc.

I did a proper cry at the Tom Baker bit. In fact, the whole way they incorporated all of the Doctors was incredibly touching, I thought. Also, THE EYEBROWS! That was pretty exciting.

I had a lot more to nit pick. Doctor Who only works if you don't think about it too much...

Anyway today I've found out that adding an additional Doctor in the middle has made conversations about the 9th+ Doctors confusing. Ralph has come up with the solution of saying "nth AKA n-1th" e.g. 11th AKA 10th which makes it clear.

My other nitpicks:

- The sonic screwdriver was physically destroyed shortly before the 11th/10th Doctors regeneration and a new one built for the 12th/11th Doctor so how can it still be running the same program? Could be that the program runs in in some Time Lord equivalent of 'The Cloud' but if that's the case then why make such a big deal about it being the same one.

- When the Zygon was pretending to be the Brigadier's daughter, why did she explain the Doctor's plan to Clara and take her to the location where she would be able to carry it out?

- How did the Queen who twenty minutes earlier had never even heard of the Zygons manage to impersonate their leader so effectively and also know the precise details of their plan?

Did anybody else see the Five Doctors(-ish) Reboot? That made me laugh lots - especially the Tom Baker bit.

Not really a huge fan of the Dr.Who 21st century reboot although I used to watch some of the Karen Gillan episodes, that glorious red hair.

But even the wife managed to sit through this special and overall I thought it pretty good. The Elizabeth 1st bit was a little rickety. And they missed a real trick with Tom Baker, he should have offered the modern Doctor a jelly baby, can't believe they missed that opportunity. Those gripes aside it was very enjoyable.
