Happy Birthday Doctor Who

Dear Doctor Who,

I have loved you since I can remember.

My earliest memory of you is the City of Death Part One cliffhanger and, since then, I have never missed an episode broadcast live on BBC One (with the sole exception of the Paul McGann TV Movie which I had seen on VHS previously but missed due to playing a gig).

Tom Baker may have scared the trousers out of me but, thankfully, Peter Davison was there to take my fan worship to a new level. Over the years my love has gone up and down at various points, but I always absolutely adored Doctor Who.

During the Nineties it was a tough old job being a fan, but that's when I became obsessive; collecting the videos and buying any magazines with a mention of you. It seems odd now that you used to be so rare, and now everybody loves you. Odd, and most satisfying.

You're still my favorite television show in the universe and still my favourite thing ever. Thank you for everything you have given me over the years, and everything you made me feel. I thank you heartily.

You have just said EXACTLY how I feel. Well done Cameron!

My earliest memory is Planet of the Spiders, watching it on my Grandad's knee. My Doctor, is of course Tom Baker but I also adore David Tennant, however I do have the utmost respect for Colin Baker, so unfairly treated but a true gent.

Well said!

Doctor Who is wonderful and I've liked it in even its weakest moments as its so full of imagination, possibility and surprise.

The Day of the Doctor has just finished screening and its given me hope for many more years of Doctor Who to come.

Yes happy birthday indeed. Thanks once more, Cameron, for everything you've done since you started this blog. For me, as a 4 year old, I remember Tom Baker in Robot, and spent 7 years in his company. He was MY doctor. City of Death - that end of episode one - also left a mark on me.
