This November marks the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. The BBC keep saying it's going to be a massive year for the series, but am I the only one underwhelmed? We're now half way into the year and basically nothing has happened. We've had a half season on TV that was ok but generally as underwhelming as the show has been for the last few years. There's been odd bits of merchandise like Royal Mail stamps and an official YouTube channel but nothing great. A London based convention aimed at the global DW fan community hasn't even started selling tickets yet. International fans seem to be getting a better deal, especially America and Australia. Here in the UK the BBC won't even air any of the classic serials, something they're making an event of in other countries. Then we have the 50th special itself. A controversial plot and apparently only one past Doctor actor returning. Then by the end of the year the current lead actor will have left. Moffat's even said he doesn't want the focus on celebrating the past half century that made the show's name but apparently starting the road to 100. Surely I'm not the only one who feels what should have been a big celebration has basically been buggered?
