Happy 13th Birthday, New Doctor Who!

Thirteen years ago today, and in spite of those who said it couldn’t (or shouldn’t) be done, Doctor Who finally returned to our screens. And as a nice little gift, the BBC created a playlist of some of the most memorable moments from the past thirteen years. And being a Doctor Who fan, I naturally…

Of course they’re Cybermen. Any fool can see that.

I’ve been working VERY HARD to stay away from Doctor Who spoilers as much as possible.
