In the 50th anniversary special episode of Doctor Who a new Doctor was introduced. He has been tagged the “War Doctor” because in the episode he is introduced as the one who started it all back on Gallifrey (home planet of the Time Lords) with the viscous war between the Time Lords and the Daleks. I won’t even attempt to elaborate on the episode, you’ll just have to view it yourself but it was a great anniversary episode featuring Doctor #10, Doctor #11 and introducing the War Doctor played by the great actor, Sir John Hurt, shown here with the handy dandy don’t leave the galaxy without it sonic screwdriver.
There was a cameo that thrilled many a Whovian by a earlier Doctor in the episode but I won’t say who it was – spoilers! In a nutshell, John Hurt’s war doctor, in the eternal war against the Daleks, is the one who supposedly did something very harsh to end the war between his people and the Daleks. He then ran off in a “borrowed” Tardis to become the very first doctor. Clear as mud, right?
Thank you for that Dalek moment, Terri! 🙂
You’re welcome 🙂
Squeals with piggy laughter. Do you know what I found out this weekend??!! Go ahead ask – ask – ask. I’m *so* glad you asked. Well do you know that they are having a Dr Who invention in Atlanta next month? It’s called WhoAtlanta. Did you know? Did you know? XOXO – Bacon
WTW!!!! Awwww man… wish I could go. Maybe Rocky can go and cover it 🙂
Now I think that would be a cool idea! XOXO – Bacon
Go forth and cover!!! I can fill you in on most things Doctor Who before you go 🙂
Star Trek makes more sense than this storyline. LOL 🙂 I love both shows.
This storyline was a bit rough in spots but still a great episode. Star Trek was always easier to grasp. 🙂
Ps: I’ve seen ads for a movie version of Lost in Space. It looks interesting.
There was a movie some years ago and it was a flop. You may be thinking about the new Netflix series of it. I’ve seen 2 episodes already… I’ll just say it was different.
Netflix – you’re right.
I try to stay up to date with sci-fi stuff and what I don’t know a bestie of mine tells me 🙂
