Happy birthday, Doctor Who – today’s the day, folks, 47 years ago, when our favourite show first graced fuzzy black and white television screens across the UK.
Next week is the day on which the first episode, An Unearthly Child, was repeated, thanks to the fallout from the assassination of US president John F Kennedy (by persons still largely unknown), but today remains our show’s anniversary.
47 years, eh? Who knows what the next three will bring?
As you know, 47 is a bit of an odd number – it’s not something you usually celebrate with fervour. However to make up for this, we’re keeping the 33% reduction on our book, Ultimate Regeneration, in place until midnight tonight to celebrate Doctor Who’s amazing birthday.
Ultimate Regeneration‘s release sale price will be Â£14.99 – however until midnight tonight, Tuesday, 23rd November 2010, you can save around 33% on this price by pre-ordering for just Â£9.99 (plus p&p).

To get you in the mood, here is yet another choice quote from Kasterborous.com’s first book, which features cover art by Anthony Dry:
â€œThank you Steven Moffat for what I can only describe as a perfect resolution to a wonderful story. Warm, heartfelt, touching and truly joyous; one moment humanity was at risk from the Chula nanogenes, the next â€“ â€˜EVERYBODY LIVES!â€™ You cannot fake good television.â€
And happy birthday, Doctor Who!
