Doctor Who stamps mark 50 years of sci-fi series - Arts & Entertainment

(Royal Mail/Canadian Press) Doctor Who, the time-travelling science fiction hero of British TV, is to be featured on a stamp from Britain’s Royal Mail. The 11 actors who have played the Time Lord will be featured on a series of stamps beginning in March. Royal Mail said its stamps devoted to Doctor Who are to mark the 50th anniversary of the TV series. The TV series has had several incarnations since it first appeared on the BBC on Nov. 26, 1963. Royal Mail stamp features Matt Smith, the current Time Lord. In addition to the 11 stamps featuring Doctor Who actors, a five stamp miniature sheet will show the TARDIS, the space and time travel machine, usually disguised as a police box. The sheet also brings together stamps featuring four of the doctor's onscreen enemies — a Dalek, an Ood, a Weeping Angel and a Cyberman. The stamps will launch on March 26 2013.

During a panel at New York Comic Con, the actor shared with hundreds of fans his history with the hit sci-fi franchise and his thoughts on the new series. “This is the only [convention] I’ve done in New York,” Davison revealed to the packed room before jumping into his experiences with fans. “When I come to a Who convention, I quite often get given books people have written, stories people have written,” he said. “I got one at a recent convention which turned out to be a kind of Fifty Shades of Grey take on it. Fascinating it was.” “I’ve always loved the fandom,” Davison continued. When asked about his experience with science fiction before he joined Doctor Who, Davison replied, “I did love science fiction, but I’m talking about H.G.

Day 461: The Face of Evil, Episode One Dear diary, When I was watching Genesis of the Daleks, I mentioned a work colleague who used to watch Doctor Who back in the 1970s, but only really has a passing interest in the show these days. Every now and then, he asks me how the marathon is going, and I update him as to my whereabouts in the run. I told him the other day that Sarah Jane had just left the TARDIS, and his face completely lit up. Certainly, we’re off to a very good start for the new season. When Series Six was announced as being split in two for transmission in 2011, there was something of an uproar in fandom. The series then took a six-week break before resuming on New Year’s Day with The Face of Evil, and continuing on through to The Talons of Weng-Chiang. So: where do I begin with this one?
