I took the photo shown above of The Time Machine museum in Bromyard, Kent as I couldn’t believe that they had Daleks in the window. They were just cardboard cutouts, but it still bought memories of my childhood flooding back.
I was born and raised in England and I grew up watching a series called Dr. Who, it was like a british staple. I remember being really afraid of the Daleks, but I was very young when I saw it for the first time. I can still hear them saying in their robotic voices, “exterminate, exterminate”.
There are eleven actors who have played the role of Dr. Who over the years, and it is still as popular today as it was back then. The actors I grew up with playing the role were, Patrick Troughton (2nd doctor), Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker; Tom Baker being the only actor who is still alive at age 79.
Matt Smith quit the role in June of this year, so It will be interesting to see who the next ‘Doctor’ is going to be.
I recently watched some of the latest episodes with David Tennant playing the role, which I thought were fantastic, so I can understand why Dr. Who still has die-hard fans.
I must also give a shout out to John Barrowman who played Captain Jack Harkness on the Dr. Who episodes. His character is the star of a recent spinoff series called Torchwood, which I watched on Netflix and really enjoyed.
Did any of you grow up watching Dr. Who?, or perhaps you are a fan of the show today.
