The BBC gave birth to the series on 23rd November 1963 at 5.15pm.
Will we get an announcement this afternoon to celebrate it's borthday about the upcoming new Doctor who is replacing David Tennant at the end of the 2009 Specials?
Some people seem to think so but I doubt it. I don't think we'll hear anything for a few months more - but we'll see, I could be wrong.
Dave Chapman (our lead writer and designer on the Doctor Who RPG) is heading down to the BBC's Image Archives this week - fully loaded with more external Hard-drive space than we have on any of the computers in the entire house and office combined - and the latest Style Guide has been released and passed our way by the Beeb so we can start the layout process according to their latest specifications.
It's great to be in the final stages of the project. I really can't wait to see the game published and in the stores with people playing it. Of course things don't stop once the game is off to the printers as there are all the supplements waiting in the wings.
We're running some demo games of Doctor Who at Dragonmeet next week (Saturday 29th November) and Dave Chapman will be down for the show for a few hours to answer any questions people may have about the game.
Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DORCTOR WHO! I look forward to the next 45 years...
