ATTENTION WHOVIANS OF TUMBLR
Doctor Who is nearing it’s 50th Anniversary and I’ve noticed that the majority of Doctor Who posts on here are about Doctors 9, 10 and 11. Although they are all brilliant in their own right, Doctors 1-8 have been ignored by the vast majority of the fandom.
I propose that, as the 50th Anniversary is approaching, they should be well represented on Tumblr.
“Operation: Doctor Who” is where Whovians on Tumblr make an effort to find out more about the “Classic” Doctors, and post them as much as the “New” ones. A simple Google search can bring up the looks of each Doctor and names of the Actors. You can buy Classic Who DVDs from Amazon and watch clips on YouTube.
Of course taking part in “Operation: Doctor Who” is completely optional, but it’d be really great to see these Doctors get the acceptance that they deserve on Tumblr.
So next time you want to make a photoset with a quote about the Doctor, or the leaving of his companions, think about the older Doctors and companions, because they are as significant as the New ones and are all confirmed canon.
If you start posting Older Doctor Who because of this post, you can tag your posts with “Operation: Doctor Who”. If anyone wants to know more about Older Doctor Who I’d be happy to help, and surfing the “Classic Doctor Who” tag is a great way to find out about Older Doctor Who and a great way to find Tumblr users who know alot about Older Doctor Who.
Thanks for reading, and have a great time tumblin’.

This is a very good idea.
Ellie, read this.
This is a worthwhile endeavor because I have seen only one episode of classic Who, and it had the First Doctor getting engaged to an Aztec princess (without knowing it) because they shared a cup of cocoa. If that’s what happened in the 60s, just imagine what the 70s were like!
Is that a dalek with a lightning shaped scar on its forehead?
It’s the Dalek Who Lived.
plot twist: harry potter was a dalek the whole time
plot twist: Harry Potter really was a dalek and Barty Jr/10 was really trying to save him
doctor who may seem like a fun silly show about a bowtie wearing alien but really it’s a spiralling pit of doom and pain that grips tightly onto your heart and drags it back into the depths of hades
Rupert Graves is going to be in an episode of Doctor Who this season. Benedict Cumberbatch is in the new Star Trek Movie. Christopher Eccleston is gonna be the villain in Thor 2.
It’s like everyone accidentally walked into the wrong classroom and are too British and polite to leave the lecture.
I’ve always liked the idea that for one season the Doctor has a companion that makes him a worse person, rather than a better person. Because when you look back at everyone the Doctor has traveled with (excluding Adam who got dropped like it was hot) were good people that made him better. But what if, just once, the Doctor’s companion somehow made the Doctor worse? Brought out the Time Lord Victorious aspect of his personality rather than the man who made the word “doctor” mean “healer” A companion for when the Doctor is visiting civilizations where “doctor” means “great warrior” instead.
Why do the Daleks have a button that causes them to spin around in circles installed on their mothership?
Just sayin’ Daleks, your plans might go better if you don’t install silly things like that on your ships. Simplify.
Which part of the Time Lord do you guys still not understand?
HOLY FUCKING SHIT.
Never watched that show, but LOL AWESOME
