The Library Looks at 50 Years of Doctor Who! Join Us for Our Doctor Who Celebration!


On Saturday, November 23rd, the world will be watching  the Twelfth on the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.   The anniversary episode, The Day of the Doctor, will feature David Tennant and Billie Piper as well as John Hurt (remember that surprise??!!) as a Doctor (we think?). A trailer has been released and it looks fab.  I had tears in my eyes. The episode will also be broadcast at the same time around the world. I am not leaving my home that day!

We have also seen the announcement that Peter Capaldi will be the 12th Doctor  taking over from Matt Smith (who I will REALLY miss) . Capaldi a long time Doctor Who fan from childhood, has been reported to be absolutely ecstatic to be playing the Doctor. He is also the same age as the first Doctor, William Hartnell, 55. He has a long television and movie career, even playing a Who (World Health Organization) doctor in World War Z (coincidence????) and is best known for his role as Malcolm Tucker in the show, In The Thick of It. Who fans might also remember his role as Caecilius in the 10th Doctor adventure, Fires of Pompeii.

Here is a link to the trailer and analysis:

  1. I thought the Doctor would be regenerating in the Christmas special? IMDb doesn’t list Peter Capaldi under the credits for the 50th anniversary episode, at any rate.

    Either way, I think this is a really neat thing you’re doing. Wish my local library were doing something like it! Maybe I’ll visit…
