Dr Who on 2 Wheels

Being an English immigrant to Canada in the ’70s, I’ve brought my childhood Dr. Who fandom with me.  Last year Triumph made a surprise appearance in “Bells of St John” episode of Doctor Who meaning I could geek out while enjoying my cool new hobby too.

Here are some screen shots from Bells, and then a video in which Jenna says after shooting, “I wanna bike, I wanna motorbike!”  Very cool.

 

 

 


Apparently Jenna wasn’t kidding about wanting a motorbike as she is the one riding in Day of The Doctor, the 50th anniversary special that came out this fall.  Here are some screen shots from that one:












 

She’s on the bike this time.  I couldn’t find anything online about whether or not she’s gotten into biking or not.  I guess I’ll have to wait until she’s on Top Gear, they’ll get it out of her!

There has been a lot of talk about this in the UK press:
