It’s Our Birthday!

That’s right – Kasterborous is officially 5 years old this month! In January 2005 we officially launched this website on an unsuspecting and largely unnoticing Doctor Who fandom, and with Anthony Dry’s design, Christian Cawley’s words and Brian Terranova’s words and counsel we’re astonished to find that it’s out birthday!

Of course, the real hard work is done by all of you.

When we started out, Outpost Gallifrey, Doctor Who Online and UnitNews were the main sources of Doctor Who news, and there didn’t seem to be any reason why that would change. As it happens, the 2005 series did change that, with Doctor Who moving into the public eye in a way we could only have imagined a few months before that.

Both Doctor Who and online fandom have changed considerably since those days, and we’re pretty satisfied to have been on board for a fantastic ride, made all the more satisfying by you visiting Kasterborous regularly to see what we think of the news, the episodes, who we’ve been chatting to and what insanity we’ve cooked up in the podKast.

Before I go on, I have one thing to say – thank you.

Yes, YOU. You’ve been great the past 5 years and I hope you’ll be around for the next 5. Don’t forget to invite your friends.

So what are we doing to celebrate? We’re having a competition! Full details on this will be revealed on Friday, and we’re pretty excited to be offering so many prizes.

Throughout this week we’ve been running a couple of smaller giveaways on Twitter and in the Kasterborous Forum (well done Helen and Bookworm!) but now it’s time for the big one – the biggest competition we’ve featured to date!

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow when full details of the prizes will be revealed!

A long-term Doctor Who fan, Christian grew up watching the show and has early memories of the Graham Williams era.
