Happy 49th Anniversary, Doctor Who

Doctor Who fan that I am, I didn't want to let this day go by without a comment (as I managed to let it go by last year). On this day in 1963, the BBC aired the very first episode of Doctor Who, "An Unearthly Child". Of course, my own introduction to the show came much later, as I wasn't born for another 10 years. I discussed my introduction to the show and my earliest memories of it in my review of The Sarah Jane Adventures episode, "Sky", so I won't repeat them here at this time (although I might do a more detailed write-up on the topic for the 50th anniversary next year). Suffice it to say, this show has been a major part of my life for a long time. While I've been very critical of the last couple years of the show, I still watch because I do still enjoy and love the show, and despite the problems I may think it has, I still consider it better than most other stuff out there.

And here's "The Great Detective", the prequel to this year's upcoming Christmas special, "The Snowmen". I'm not writing a full review of "The Great Detective" as it's too short and, more importantly, too incomplete. All it does it set the scene for the Christmas special. However, I will say that I enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to the "The Snowmen".
