Continuin with Myths & Legends Week, today’s Pick is in honor of one of the legends they most adore at Myths and Legends Con, the Doctor.
“Wait, the Doctor? He’s a television character, not a true legend!”
Folks, our various electronic media forms have been around long enough, it’s more than fair to say certain characters have become thoroughly embedded as legendary in the collective psyche of humanity. Luke Skywalker. Flash Gordon. Wonder Woman. Indiana Jones. Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Can you really deny the utterly iconic, legendary presence of the Doctor in our geek-loving culture?
Imagine you could go anywhere. This world or countless others, encountering strange alien races, new cultures or hostile environments. Now imagine you could travel to any time. See the pyramids and the Sphinx (back when she had a nose!), discover who (or what) really built Stonehenge, meet the first Emperor of Japan, or travel into the far future as humanity spreads to the stars. Where would you go?
With Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space, the power is in your hands! You can go anywhere or anywhen in the universe. It’s not going to be easy. It’ll probably be dangerous. The universe is a hostile place, full of Daleks, Slitheen, Krillitane, Sontarans, Plasmavores, Cybermen, Sycorax, Judoon and worse. There will be fear, heartbreak and excitement, but above all, it’ll be the trip of a lifetime.
