First off, today is a very special day for nerds the world over. Why? Oh, I’ll tell you why: 50 years ago today, a brand new series began filming for the BBC. A little show about a Time Lord, traveling around in an old police box, who goes by the name “The Doctor”…that’s right, my fellow Whovians! Today is the 50th anniversary of the day Doctor Who begin filming! I think this calls for a celebration of some sort.
Speaking of British television, if any of you reading this are Sherlockians as well as Whovians (like I obviously am), then I have a little treat for you as well! (Treat, torture, same difference.) Courtesy of the BBC, you can click on the image below to see brand new, behind-the-scenes photos from the set of series three of Sherlock!
Now, since I’m still not back to participating in Blogtember, I thought I it would be fun to do another survey or two! At the very least, they are fun to me. I don’t know if they are fun or interesting to you…
