16: 50 Years of DOCTOR WHO Part 2

In Part 2 of our celebration of DOCTOR WHO‘s 50th anniversary, we take a look at the big events of the weekend itself, from the airing of the special adventure “The Day of the Doctor” to AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME, the Mark Gatiss-scripted drama that takes a nostalgic look back at the beginning of it all. Scott and Arnold discuss the celebration of a television institution, focus on the many “beautiful” touches that made it such an unbridled joy, and also provide some feedback on Big Finish’s own 50th anniversary special, “The Light at the End,” and the classic Doctor romp, “The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot!” Also, check the show links below for some of the many ways that Scott and Arnold seemed to take over the Internet on the 50th anniversary weekend!

SPECIAL NOTE: This episode features a remix of the DOCTOR WHO theme by “Gwylock1”!
