Doctor Who Fans

BBC Radio 4Extra ran a 5 hour reading of the original Doctor Who serial - "Dr Who and the Daleks". All 10 episodes read by the actor who played the Doctor's first male side kick. Unfortunately it ran from midnight to 5am and I fell asleep and missed large chunks of it.

If anyone is interested you can listen to it on BBC Listen Again. Just Google BBC Radio 4x and when you get the site click on schedules and it brings a week' programmes. You need Sunday morning on the schedules(I get a bit confused over your time zones)

It was exciting but I wasn't as frightened as I was when I first saw it on our little black and white television in the corner of the sitting room 50 years ago

There have already been lots of programmes and here's a link to some of the programmes still to come. Didn't realise how many Dr. Who fans there were out there.

What time and channel are the Doctor Who 50th anniversary programmes on?.

I still love watching them.

I love Doctor Who! But I hate the Daleks, the "rubbish bins of the Universe."

One of the boys in my school in Brasov made a Dalek from an old motorized wheelchair.

With love,

Cool, thanks for the info.

You aren't far off CatPat. I used to go out with one of the original Dr. Who SFX guys and in the first series with the Daleks they had a miniscule budget and the daleks really were made with sink plungers and similar. I don't think the BBC realised what they had.

How to make your sons realise how 'cool' their Mother was go out with someone who was involved with Dr. Who

Oh the music!!

I don't know what your weather is like but I have just spent a happy few hours watching some of them on a bitterly cold, rainy day here.
