46 years ago today, the first episode of Dr. Who aired.
Yes, the special effects are cheesy. Yes, many of the 'enemies' are hokey. Yes, there are many, many non-sequiters and continuity issues with the plot lines.
And yet, I have been a fan since the 1970s.
As silly as some of the plots are, the acting and the characters are compelling. I can honestly say there have been episodes that have moved me to tears.
Yes--this is the silly Science Fiction series about a Time Lord moving through time and space in his blue police box. I am not embarrassed about my unabashed fan girl glee about this show.
Long may Dr. Who live, through many more regenerations.
