Greetings, friends! Time to kick off another week with an episode of the Balticon 47 Wrap up. This week we’re taking a look at the history of the BBC Science Fiction serial Doctor Who, and what it has meant for each of us. Doctor Who is coming up on its 50th year anniversary, but has managed to keep hold of the minds and imaginations of viewers in increasing numbers from year to year.

Our panel for this week is Growing up Who, a look at how Doctor Who has affected each of our lives and the lessons we have learned from watching it. Moderating the panel is Lady Ozma, aka Jacalyn Stanley, and filling out the panel are her son Caramon Stanley, Larry Reclusado, and myself. The panel takes a look at what it was like for each of us to grow up watching Doctor Who, both the classic series for most of the panelists, and the new series for Caramon. We look at how the series influenced our outlooks on life, and how those changes have shaped our lives, and how the series itself has changed over time.
