One of the things for which Doctor Who fans should be forever thankful for is that, despite some institutional shakiness about 35 years ago, it is also a place that has, and venerates, its own history, and Doctor Who is a not-insignificant part of that collective memory.
In a move that posed as a direct hit for a website dedicated to Doctor Who history, images of companion re-pairings for some of the upcoming shoulder-programming for the 60th Anniversary have been released, and they’re simply wonderful.
10 years ago as part of the run-up to the 50th the wholly unexpected drop of The Night of the Doctor healed a continuity gap as well the pleasure of seeing Paul McGann back in harness. These photos, taken as part of ‘Tales of the TARDIS,’ are another jolt of joy.
Spanning the decades. That’s part of what Doctor Who is all about.
