Warren Ellis on watching Doctor Who


“And that was it. That moment. In those five seconds, a key piece of British culture had gloriously returned.”

It was always around when I was a kid. I must have established at some point that I liked it, or maybe my brother did that first, as the toys arrived when I was (I think) four and a half and he was seven, and I have some of the original Doctor Who Weekly comics in well-read-by-kids battered state. I can remember Logopolis, probably a repeat, clearly, but obviously knew it before that. And even when it was a mess, it was still a must-see. But I don’t know who turned the TV on in the first place when I was in the room for it...
