Happy 53rd birthday Doctor Who

Back in 1999 Doctor Who was long dead on television. It was the preserve of people’s nostalgic memories of when Saturday night telly was something golden and glorious, not to mention it was the life of the hardcore fan. On this, the 53rd birthday of the programme’s first broadcast, here’s a glorious sketch from BBC2’s Doctor Who night from 1999 featuring a then more or less unknown Mark Gatiss, a vaguely known David Walliams and Peter Davison…

Happy birthday to Doctor Who and all us old fans who’ve kept the thing going since we were old enough to buy a Target novelisation with a Chris Achilleos cover…

  1. Or, in my case, since watching the very first episode. I’m currently listening to a Big Finish audio – Cold fusion – with Peter Davison and Sylvester McCoy. The BBC, BF cd’s, and the old audio adventures in time and space on cassette, kept me going through the barren years. Nowadays I can accompany the tv show with the excellent Panini compilation comics, particularly the superb John Ridgeway illustrated episodes. Can’t recommend them highly enough.
