Friday Flashback 007: Happy 50th, Doctor Who!
On November 23, 1963 a family-oriented educational program debuted on the BBC. The focus of the new show was science fiction and time travel and featured a title character by the name of Doctor Who.
Fifty years later, the good Doctor has survived through 11 incarnations (get ready to meet Doctor #12!) and more than prospered, becoming a worldwide sci-fi phenomenon on his trip through time and space. Beyond the TV show, Doctor Who is a fan favorite in comics, books, DVDs and Blu-rays, toys, action figures, clothing, and more merchandise way too numerous to mention.
We’re going to hop into our very own TARDIS and take a short trip back to Hall H on Sunday, July 21, so we can share with you exclusive photos of Matt Smith’s final Comic-Con appearance as the eleventh Doctor at the Doctor Who panel, including some never before seen behind the scenes shots, and a trio of great costume photos from the show. All photos are by our official Comic-Con photographers.
Happy birthday Doctor Who! We know if we were able to travel in time 50 years into the future, we’d find you still as popular as ever on your 100th birthday!
