Top Ten Locations I’d Love To Visit If I Were A Doctor Who Companion
Nemo: Here’s the brief: “Top Ten Historical Settings You Love/ Ten Historical Settings You’d Love To See or Top Futuristic Books You Love/Ten Futuristic Societies I’d Love To Read in Books — basically this week is all about the past or the future….spin it however you choose!” And basically since Doctor Who is a show that intended to teach kids about history by visiting the past, and science by visiting the future, that’s how I came up with the title.
My top five locations (if I manage to channel my inner Doctor) are:
The Elizabethan/Jacobean era purely to see Shakespeare’s plays as intended.
The Georgian era because this was the era of the Gothic revival, and the Romance movement in literature, and I feel like I could just soak it all up I I were there, and also the fashion was pretty great.
When Atlantis was in its heyday because according to Herodotus there really was an island that sank into the Atlantic and I really want to know what the heck was going on in that place, were they really technologically advanced or what?
Jesus times because as an atheist I really have to know what the heck is going on with that.
The time in the future when humans are relocating planets, whenever that is, because I want to know if the human race is going to be OK in the future.
Jurassic period – Just because of the dinosaurs, c’mon. Also, I’d hopefully be able to gawk at them from a safe distance in the TARDIS.
Ancient Egypt – First and foremost I’d love to know how the freaking pyramids were built because that continues to blow my mind on a regular basis
The year 3016 – Purely for the sake of travelling 1000 years into the future to see how things have panned out for humanity
Roaring 20’s in the USA – The way things boomed before the crash in 1929 would be so fascinating to see. People would probably be so happy too considering WW1 ended a few years before this too.
Medieval London – No idea why as I imagine it wouldn’t be very pleasant for many people at all, not to mention the plague/s, however I’ve always been deeply curious about how people lived day to day for some reason.
