November 23, 2013 will be a day forever fixed in time and space for Doctor Who fans--or Whovians, as they affectionately call themselves. Saturday the 23rd marked the 50th anniversary of the dearly beloved and longest running sci-fi show of all time.  Such a special occasion was this that at precisely 2:50 P.M.

But thanks to Copeland’s efforts, we finally have research to put this lame copout to bed once and for all. Read More
