MAY the NEW BOOKS be with you!
Whether you’re a sci-fi aficionado or just starting to dabble into the fantastical realms, consider diving deep into the mysterious and incredible world of Doctor Who.
This British series began in 1963 on the BBC, running continuously (with various actors portraying the title character) until about 1989. After more than a decade off the air, the series was relaunched in 2005. Since then, three actors have held the role of the immortal, time-traveling Time Lord, Doctor Who. Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor, has held the role since 2010.
Emmy Schumacher, QVMS student & self-avowed Whovian, was kind enough to share her favorite episodes with us. If you’re interested in getting to know Doctor Who, or just want to catch some episodes you haven’t seen yet, check out these entries in the series:
Emmy’s Ten Favourite Doctor Who Episodes

Still want more Who? Join the monthly Doctor Who Discussion Group @ Sewickley Public Library. Whovians and newbies are encouraged to attend! Next meeting is Monday, May 6th at 6:00 pm.
