The First Cover (February 1964)

Doctor Who was first shown on British screens on November 23rd, 1963. The country was gripped by Beatlemania, and a bitter winter was about to set in. 48 years later, Doctor Who is the longest-running science fiction TV show ever, and shows no signs of flagging.

So to celebrate 48th birthday of all things Time Lord, here are a selection of covers from the Radio Times, depicting the show’s development over the years.

Happy 48th birthday Tori! <3

It’s August 22th in Norway and time to celebrate Tori’s birthday! This is going to be a great year for Tori and all ears with feet. Before turning 49, Tori will be releasing her 12th album Night of Hunters, go on yet another tour and see her hard work finally paying off on stage, with the premiere of The Light Princess on The Royal National Theatre. I wish you all the best Tori!

Feel free to join the celebration, I’ll be reblogging birthday messages all day! <3


As the (birth)day is coming to an end, I would like to just say it’s been so nice celebrating Tori’s birthday with you all! Thank you so much for sharing your stories, memories, thoughts and wishes <3

To end it on a cute note, my fab daily newspaper mentioned Tori in the “Jubilee” section. It says:

“Musician, singer and songwriter Tori Amos (picture) 48 years”

I love the fact that I read a newspaper that appreciates Tori <3
