I think the best bit about watching the 50th anniversary special in the theater was looking around and seeing all these kids who weren't born when my Doctors were on the air.

I remember the day a friend came into the dining hall in college to tell us that Doctor Who was cancelled. "But they can't!" we said. "They just can't!"

They couldn't!

Also a delight seeing it start with the opening sequence of the first-ever episode redone in color and 3D. (Not to mention the original opening credits.) And of course the cameo(s).

I suppose I should really sit down and catch up on the new series, with their manpain, "sexed up" companion-Doctor ships and all. I'm so out of touch; I hadn't seen Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart's daughter, and she's great.

I haven't watched the last two (?) seasons of Eleven, but I hadn't seen Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart's daughter before, either, despite the fact that U.N.I.T. made appearances in a few episodes I recall (especially one of Ten's). I'm wondering if she was thrown in just for the 50th Anniversary special.
