Is There A Doctor In The House?


We've had our first bit of snow today. Not much. Just a sprinkle. I missed most of it, as I had a bit of a Sunday morning lie-in.

I bought a full set of Doctor Who figures the other day, as they were in a shop sale, and I have been wondering how I can use them in a photograph.

As there are eleven of them altogether, I thought the photo might be a bit crowded, so I have just chosen Doctor numbers 3, 4, 5 and 11.

I chose them because, Jon Pertwee was the first one I saw on TV. Tom Baker is my favourite. I met Peter Davison in real life and Matt Smith is the current one.

As much as I like the new style of show, I don't think it is a patch on the old style stories with character development and plot pacing. They seem to try and cover so much in 45 minutes now, which before used to be 90, or 150 minutes. Yes, there used to be a bit of padding, but having to wait until the following Saturday to see the next instalment, was exciting.

If only the old show had the budget and available special effects that the modern version has, then it would have been incredible. But the production team did well with their imagination, trying to show great effects with a small amount of money.
