50 Minus 6

November 17th, 2013

I had hoped to embark on another one of my month-long blog-a-thons in commemoration of next Saturday’s 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, but it was not to be.

This past month much of my free time has been consumed by a board game design competition run by the Champaign-Urbana Design Organization. My team’s entry is a horror-themed game loosely based on the movie Cabin in the Woods. “Cabin Full of Monsters” is a tongue-in-cheek contest in which the players recruit and equip teams of monsters and set them loose in the eponymous building. It’s coming along nicely, but it certainly has been a time suck.

So, here we are, six days out from what is not only the most significant moment in the long history of one of the BBC’s signature dramas, but perhaps the biggest event in all of televised science-fiction: a worldwide simulcast of the 50th anniversary episode to be seen in 75 countries, with 3D theatrical screenings in many of them. And I haven’t had much to say about it.

I’m sure that I’ll have more about the anniversary programming later in the week, but for now I will direct you to some of my previous postings: 31 Classic Doctor Who MonstersThe Doctor Who Experience (including a complete photo gallery) and Sixty Things I Like About Who.
