Introducing the Doctor Who 50 Stories Project

So last summer I started a project based on the then-most-recent edition of Doctor Who magazine.

This one right here.

Basically, they did a poll of their readers' favourite episodes, from An Unearthly Child to The Time of the Doctor and everything in between, and ranked them. I love lists like this, especially concerning Doctor Who, which I really love but am occasionally overwhelmed by. (What other TV shows do you know that have 50+ years and 900 episodes of backstory?!)

I took the top 50 episodes, put them in order of original broadcast, and decided to blog my way through them on my tumblr. Some I had seen many, many times. Some I had never seen before. Basically, it was a way for me to fill in gaps (some of them embarrassing) in my Doctor Who viewing and to while away the weeks before Season 8 started.

The project has stalled somewhat in recent months, but I'm still determined to get all the way to the end with The Day of the Doctor (which, quite neatly, placed top of the poll). So, I'll be continuing the project on my shiny new blog, editing my old tumblr posts and hopefully making it all the way through Jon Pertwee this time! 

Join me in a few days for the first installment, where I'll be going back to Skaro with the first ever Dalek story, The Daleks!
