Time is Relative

Another Doctor Who related one, inspired by the Mark Gatiss drama about William Hartnell and the genesis of Doctor Who. Here is a look back at the man who began it all, and the times he lived in...

Time is Relative
Misty streets, the junkyard gates loom
Teachers enter, looking for the child
And find a Police Box amidst the gloom
And an old man, irascible, not at all mild
He was the pioneer, the first to make
A strange adventure in time and space
And many were to follow in his wake
Forever renewed, forever changed face
Black and white magic, fuzzy screens
But going forward in all their beliefs
With all the flaws, misspoken scenes
And Tardis and Daleks, twin motifs
Childhood memories of so long ago
And I still enjoy and watch the show
