Doctor Who is 44 today…

… and I can think of absolutely nothing interesting about the number 44.

So, instead, here’s a lovely drawing by Roger Langridge from the 35th anniversary comic strip, published in Doctor Who Magazine issue 272 (Marvel UK, 1998), and reprinted in Doctor Who: The Glorious Dead (Panini Books, 2006). It’s worth clicking-to-enlarge for all the figures in the crowd. I particularly like the Sontaran impersonating Grimly Feendish.

Happy anniversary, Doctor Who!

I'm sorry to say I can recognise every character in that - even the obscure ones like the 'Oh pants' chap in the foreground.

Sadly, the show's first producer, Verity Lambert, appears to have passed away -

Sadly, the BBC has confirmed the news of Verity Lambert's death. I've posted about it here.
