Apparently, this is the birthday of the first Doctor Who I ever saw.

Ahh, I've always been fond of Tom Baker, for Dr. Who of course, but most especially because he played Puddleglum in the old, wonderfully terrible BBC Narnia adaptations from back in the day.  He will always be Puddleglum to me, and Puddleglum will always be a favorite of mine as well.  :D

Funnily enough, I rewatched Genesis of the Daleks last night. Very different from modern Doctor Who, but that's not a bad thing. Still a surprisingly detailed look at the fascist playbook.
