The Goggle Box

Initially, I had thought that I would do a couple of specialised pages about TV programmes like Doctor Who and any other TV links I had would be placed on my page of oddments. However, I realised whilst compiling these pages that some programmes had more than one link, and that if I wasn't careful the oddments page would be predominantly TV links.

Therefore I decided to create this page, a general TV page, with one slight difference. Instead of just having a list of all the TV links I could find, I have decided to list those programs I enjoy, with a little information about each, and where appropriate links to my own pages about those programmes.

I thought about seperating the programmes into categories such as Sci-fi and Comedy, but decided as some programmes crossed the borders between two types that instead I would just list each programme with a little information and the links.

Doctor Who


Doctor Who started on 23rd November 1963. The programme ran for 26 years, and during that time 7 actors played the title role of the Doctor. Recently, a new telemovie starring Paul McGann as the Doctor, was produced and was shown in the UK in May 96. More information about Doctor Who can be found on my Red Who Page where I have created quizzes and puzzles for you to try.
