'Day of the Doctor': The 3D Cinema Experience Reviewed
Huffington Post - about 3 years
I first remember watching Doctor Who aged about two, and as cliche demands, I was actually hiding behind the sofa. Family Thompson were tuned in because my dad, god rest his soul, was a huge fan, testament to the fact it was always meant to be a show for the whole family and not just kids' TV. Even before I could talk, I think I knew what a dalek was, as my dad made up various Doctor Who tales in lieu of the usual bedtime stories as I grew up, quaking under my quilt. After every episode, my mum delights in telling me, I'd go to bed and plead: "Please don't turn out the lights mummy and daddy. Daleks! Please keep the lights on!"
I remember Jon Pertwee regenerating into Tom Baker, and grew up playing Doctor Who games with my godbrother and godsister - I always wanted to be Leela but invariably ended up as K-9. My godfather and dad even took all three of us Whovian kids to the Doctor Who convention at Longleat in 1983. It was possibly the best thing that ever happened to me as a child.
