In this episode of Playing Doctor Podcast we travel to the Kempsville Area Library in Virginia Beach. We were pleased to be invited to participate in the Library’s Doctor Who night “Calling All Whovians” and we look forward to participating again in the future (or maybe even the past, because TARDIS). The night’s discussion was “Doctor Who: Fifty Years to Overnight Success”. We examined how that even though Doctor Who has been on the air and popular in Britain since 1963 and enjoyed niche success in the US during the 1970s and 80s, it wasn’t until 2010 and the arrival of Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor that Doctor Who exploded in popularity in the United States. While this isn’t a SPOILER episode we do discuss several topics across all five decades of Doctor Who so there may be a few minor spoilers.
Special thanks go out to Librarian Denise Walker and Crystal Parker for inviting us to the show. We really enjoyed ourselves and were honored to be asked to participate in the evening’s events.
If you’re in the area be sure to check out some of the other fun events at the Kempsville Area Library.
