The day has finally arrived. It’s 23 November and Doctor Who is officially 50 years old! The Doctor Who Mind Robber is endeavouring to stay spoiler free in the lead up to the broadcast of The Day of the Doctor at 7:50 p.m. UK time. Being Australian based, the 50th Anniversary Special is being broadcast on ABC1 at 6:50 a.m. tomorrow (Sunday) morning. The writer, however, is attending a 3D Cinema screening at 11.00 a.m. so will try her very hardest not to touch the internet until her return tomorrow afternoon. Enjoy your celebrations!
To celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary on Saturday, ABC Shops around Australia are hosting a “Doctor Who Day”. Each local ABC Shop will conduct a Cosplay competition together with trivia and colouring in competitions. Doctor Who prizes will be offered and there will also be specials on selected Who merchandise. Further details are available on the ABC Shop Doctor Who Day Facebook page, which also has a handy store locator.
