I also wanted to utilize this article to remind of you Whovians out that Doctor Who returns March 30, 8:00pm ET on BBC AMERICA. The organization just sent us the first images of the upcoming season.
For those of you wondering why I’m posting Doctor Who images is because the same way we have readers who are wrestling fans, we also have readers who love soccer and the Doctor. Besides, how many online sports publications will have Doctor Who images that BBC America has given permission to utilize?
If you’ve never watched an episode of Doctor Who, please do so. Learn about the Doctor and his blue Police Box time machine and spacecraft recognized worldwide as the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space).
It’s an amazing show that will be celebrating it’s 50th anniversary later this year. Matt Smith, who currently plays the Eleventh Doctor at one time had aspirations of being a professional footballer.
He played for the youth teams of Northampton Town F.C., Nottingham Forest F.C. and Leicester City F.C and after a back injury, he was introduced to acting by his drama teacher. His favorite club are the Blackburn Rovers.
With the new season of Doctor Who right around the corner, I’ll do my best to include photos throughout my articles from time to time. Thank you and enjoy your soccer matches and watching the Doctor.
