There’s just something about a mad man in a blue box, isn’t there? His choice of companions – male or female – helps, too. For those of us who have fallen to the charms of The Doctor, there is no need to explain. For those who have yet to experience Doctor Who – you are missing half your life. And what the entire universe (and all the others out there) has to offer.
This year, Doctor Who turns 50, and Whovians all over the world are waiting in anticipation for the festivities. In the meantime, certified Whovian or not, here is an infographic that will sate your appetite for the Doctor. That, or give you a good enough background information so that you might just finally get to experience the adventures that the Doctor has to offer.
This infographic details all the Doctors from the 1st (William Hartnell) to the 11th (Matt Smith). Admittedly, it does not have much about the 12th (Peter Capaldi) yet, but that’s a whole new story waiting to happen. You’ll also get a dose of trivia about the Doctors and the show itself.
While the infographic does have its merits, I have to admit that I would have liked it to be more comprehensive. “Then and now” is good, but details about all the Doctors would have been even better. For someone who has only seen the 9th, 10th, and 11th Doctors in action, I do have a seemingly insatiable appetite for more.
In any case, there’s still some enjoyment to be had in looking at this infographic.
