Buckingham Palace Celebrates 50 Years Of Doctor Who!

Doctor! Doctor! Doctor! DOCTOR!!

The Daleks have invaded Buckingham Palace!

Matt Smith, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, and John Hurt were all on hand to save the palace from the invasion of the Daleks at the reception given by the Countess of Wessex to celebrate the show’s 50th anniversary.

The Countess reportedly told the four Doctors that she had been a fan of the show since watching it as a child with her brother David.

Tom Baker revealed that the Countess said that his Fourth Doctor was her favourite:

She told me I was her favorite Doctor, which is very thrilling and very flattering and I will probably never recover.

Peter Davison, on viewing Daleks and the TARDIS in the Bow Room of the Palace said the sight was “the most incongruous thing I’ve ever seen.”

Matt Smith, who brought his mother Lynne along to the reception, mentioned how it felt for him  to be leaving the show.

Just seeing my old friends that I work with and the kids and the Daleks here and you think it was a great job, but I left. No use crying over spilt milk. Who knows, in 50 years if they will let me come back, I will. As of Christmas Day it’s on to Peter (Capaldi). I wish him all the best.

Jenna Coleman also revealed that she has already shot her first scenes with incoming Doctor Peter Capaldi!

The reception was also attended by children from two local primary schools in Cardiff who had competed to make the Queen her very own TARDIS. One included an illuminated crown on the roof and dog flap for the  Queen’s corgis!

Rebecca is new to the Who world, having only recently watched the entire new series in a span of 8 days. She is no stranger to sci-fi though, being a life long Trekkie and has vague memories of seeing the 4th Doctor on US television as a child. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she is a fan of pop culture and loves movies and books so much she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She also likes to make attempts at various forms of art including photography and painting. Rebecca is currently working her way through as many classic serials and as many books related to the show that she can find and wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.
