Of course, it was impossible for all of the Doctors to be physically on the screen in the 50th Anniversary special. The first three actors were all dead, while the next cache of classic Dr Who actors had aged considerably since their spell in the TARDIS.
Nevertheless, none of them were forgotten. During that beautiful week, I watched An Adventure in Time and Space, which dramatized the William Hartnell years. It fascinated me throughout, while the final scene had me jolting breathless in my seat.
In The Science of Dr Who, I attended (via television) a lecture given by Prof Brian Cox. He demonstrated the Physics of time and space, leaving us with the fabulous notion that time travel is technically possible. We haven't the Physics to do it yet, but then, we aren't Time Lords.
The Ultimate Guide to Dr Who took us on a long and lingering exploration of all fifty years. We got to revel in everything that had been. Our Doctors were not glossed over. They were celebrated in their turn.
For the musically minded, there was a trip to the Albert Hall, where music from half a century of Dr Who broadcasts was performed by a full orchestra. Matt Smith's Doctor and Clara appeared amongst the musicians. Famous monsters attacked from the audience. Dr Who at the Proms 2013 was nothing short of thrilling!
And, of course, we finally got to see Paul McGann's Doctor regenerate.
