Great words..

Yesterday marked the 47th Anniversary of the first broadcast of Doctor Who, easily the most influential TV show of my life. Who has been a constant companion, even when it was off the TV I was still immersing myself in its mythos through novels, comics, and audio dramas.

Like most Who fans, I posted a couple of things on my Facebook page yesterday linking either to videos or the relevant BBC archive pages.

When I switched on my laptop this morning the You Tube page was still on a Who video - but what caught my eye was a link to something I had not seen since it's first broadcast in 1989; the final moments of the final story in the "classic" Dr. Who era.

There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, and the sea's asleep, and the rivers dream. People made of smoke, and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there’s injustice, and somewhere else the tea's getting cold. Come on, Ace — we’ve got work to do!

What great words with which to both end an era, and sow seeds for a unknown future.
