Global mass viewing of “Rose” tonight, 26 March
If you are in isolation – as you should be – there are global, communal online rewatches of Doctor Who planned starting at 7pm UK time on the dates below.
For “Rose” (tonight, 26 March – yes, it’s the 15 year anniversary) you can follow all the fans watching on Twitter by using the hashtag #TripofaLifetime. As Steven Moffat did, Russell T Davies will be joining Twitter to be part of the fun.
UPDATE: Russell T Davies has now signed up and you can follow him here: twitter.com/russelldavies63
If you are in the UK you can watch it on iPlayer here: www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0074dlv/doctor-who-series-1-1-rose
Depending on your country it is also available on Netflix, Amazon, iTunes, Google Play etc.
For “Day of The Doctor” the hashtag was #SaveTheDay.
You can also join in the conversations here afterwards:
In 2005, Saturday nights were about to become interesting for Rose Tyler, and a new audience for Doctor Who. #TripofaLifetime
After 50 years of adventures in Time and Space, it’s time for the Doctor to confront his own dark past in the 50th anniversary special. #SaveTheDay
Series 12 (or 38)
It’s back! A new series for the new year. From what I’ve heard some lessons have been learned from the last series (which wasn’t too bad but did have a few missteps). Here’s hoping we are in for a lot of treats this season.

Female Time Lord retrospective
In honour of Jodie Whittaker taking over the role as the Thirteenth Doctor we started to re-watch some Doctor Who stories involving female Time Lords or, at least, female Gallifreyans. We started with Susan in “The Aztecs” and we were on Rodan in “The Invasion of Time” until I took a break. But let’s get back to it.
The invaders are gone but the Doctor has a whole new bunch of invaders to deal with – the Sontarans.
The Doctor reveals the Matrix has been invaded and he has a drastic plan to force the invaders to materialise.
The Doctor welcomes the “new masters” of Gallifrey while Leela and Rodan go on the run outside the Citadel.
The Doctor, crowned Lord President, starts putting his plan in place. Leela meets her first female Gallifreyan, Rodan.
After signing a treaty with enemies the Doctor returns to Gallifrey and demands the Presidency of the High Council of Time Lords.
Ian finds the way back into the tomb. Can the TARDIS team escape before Tlotoxl’s plans bring them all down?
Tlotoxl finds out about The Doctor’s plans to find an entrance to the tomb and his suspicions are aroused.
Tlotoxl has threatened to destroy Barbara for being a false god and begins to put his plans in place.
The TARDIS has landed in an Aztec tomb and Barbara is mistaken by the High Priest for the reincarnation of the god Yetaxa.
