THE DAY OF THE DOC­TOR

ABC1, 6.50am and 7.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

FEW TV se­ries last five years, much less notch up a half a cen­tury, so this 75- minute Doc­tor Who spe­cial is very spe­cial al in­deed. We al­ready know it fea­tures at least three Doc­tors ( Matt Smith, John Hurt and David Ten­nant, pic­tured) along with ad­ver­saries the Daleks and the Zy­gons and will be simul­cast st around the world at 6.50am. We learn that the first episode was so bad it had to be reshot and then no one watched the broad­cast cast be­cause of pres­i­dent Kennedy’s as­sas­si­na­tion. The main rea­son ason it sur­vived? Dalek- ma­nia.
