When I was eleven I was sitting in my lounge room watching our black and white which happened to be one of very few in town. While watching my favourite show Dr Who (ABC 6.30 Mon- Friday), I often dreamed that one day I would love to ride in the Tardis anywhere in the universe- not just in the world. Even so young I never thought I?d go to another world before I went to another country.
The Daleks were chasing the Dr through caverns ? ?exterminate, exterminate?!
Typically, I hid behind a pillow firmly believing, as kids in any generation do, that this was the end of The Dr. Then there was a long silence. Soon enough I peeped over my pillow and the reality of the chase had just shifted to another field. Who changed the channel? My reality had been magically altered!
There, behind a collapsed wall was a man with a head mic, clipboard and another holding a large rope which turned out to be a cable.
I screamed out for mum.
She explained what had happened.
I was devastated. How could they do that to me?
Worse still, I couldn?t even discuss it with my mates at school the next day. Why? Because if they had a TV they were not allowed to watch the show as it was deemed too much for kids my age and anyway, their dad and mum would be watching the game show on the only other channel. My parents always indulged my fantasy, foregoing their please to let me watch my show each and every weekday. And worse still- I would?ve had to wait to get to school- oh for an email, twitter, IPhone etc. All I had was my voice at little lunch and lunch.
Though, even after the 1964 debacle I have continued to travel with the Dr, never missing an episode. And now I have inspired my three sons to follow suit. By the time Patrick Troughton had been reincarnated as the new Dr and after the collapse of the set, I did realise it was all ?made up? though missed that social discussion and interaction with my peers.
