Happy 10th birthday to the show that changed my life forever!

“When they made this particular hero, they didn’t give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn’t gave him a tank or a warship or an x-wing fighter, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help. And they didn’t give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray, they gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts. And that’s an extraordinary thing; there will never come a time when we don’t need a hero like the Doctor.” (Steven Moffat)

“Getting to tell the stories that you get to tell and travel in the Tardis and friendship, and just so many magical things. There’s nothing as whimsical as this show, I don’t think. It’s a dream. It kind of feels a bit like an adventure.” (Jenna Coleman)

The marvelous thing about Doctor Who is that it tells stories that no one else can tell.” (Russell T.Davies)

"The world would be a poorer place without Doctor Who” (Steven Spielberg)

“By the way, did I mention it also travels in time?”

The Doctor Who episode ‘Rose’ aired 10 years ago today (March 26 2005), it was the return of the series to TV screens after nearly 9 years off air and would help bring The Doctor to global audience, whilst still capturing the hearts and minds of children.

10 years on Doctor Who is bigger than ever across the world and it really is down to the efforts of everyone involved in series 1 of the new run.

Without the  commitment of people like Russell T Davies and  Julie Gardner, without the down to earth performance of Billie Piper as companion Rose or the charming, silly and occasionally seriousness of Christopher Eccleston’s Doctor the show would not have been a success.

10 years since that “Run!”
10 years since that “I’m the Doctor, by the way. Run for your life!”
10 years since that “The Doctor has a constant companion. Death.”
10 years since that “Did I mention it also travels in time?”
10 years since Rose Tyler met the Doctor, and her boring, tedious, ordinary life changed for ever.
10 years since OUR lives were changed by that meeting.



In honour of the 10th anniversary of the rebooted Doctor Who (or as i like to call it New Who) I’ve made a gif set of the moment that started it all.
