Life as my favourite Character.

If you were a beloved children’s character, which one would you be?

Can Doctor Who be considered a children’s character? I think they are, largely because the first episodes were broadcast when I was five, back in 1963.

That makes them a character I loved as a child and 60 years later, I still watch the new episodes, with some of the same aliens, some new ones and special effects that my black-and-white T.V.-watching self would never have imagined.

While I might not retreat behind the sofa quite as much now as I used to, I still get the jumps, thrills and enjoyment.

And I think that, if I could be a children’s character, the Doctor is one I’d love to be. Or one of their companions, I guess that would be good enough.

It’s my thing, exploring time and space. In a way, I do it already, through the product of my imagination. To be able to do it for real would be a bonus. For one thing, I’d be able to see if the visions and stories that I see in my head matched up to the reality of life in the future, or an alternative now.

I would like to have some of the adventures that the Doctor has been part of. I feel prepared for the task, after all, I’ve been guiding my characters through all sorts of scrapes and tense moments over the past few years. In the film that plays in my head, they’ve fought all sorts of battles, resorted to wit and guile and talked their way out of many a tricky situation.

That must give me some experience in the role of galactic adventurer.

I probably wouldn’t last five minutes but hey, if I did, it could be fun.

Until next time.

      I remember the good old days, black and white, wobbly sets, Tom Baker as the Doctor and Sarah-Jane.

    I only watched a few Doctor Who programmes, as even then I wasn’t really into science fiction/fantasy. I do remember a blue police box in Green Street, Poplar, that looked exactly like the one on TV. I always wanted to explore inside it!

      People watch because it’s become a family thing, it’s been around long enough to gain it’s own momentum.
