Because some people still dare to dream, a group of Doctor Who fans have created a petition to have the Empire State Building be lit ‘TARDIS blue’ (technically just regular-blue) to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the series on November 23rd, when we’ll all gather around our TV’s and cry. Or riot in the streets and set cars on fire.
The Doctor has visited NYC many times over the years, most recently earlier this season. Now, Doctor Who fans from New York and around the world are working with NYSciFi & Fantasy to celebrate The Doctor’s 50th anniversary on one of New York City’s most famous landmarks: The Empire State Building.
We are asking the Empire State Building to light up “TARDIS Blue” on November 23rd to celebrate 50 great years of Doctor Who. The Empire State Building regularly uses their spectacular light show to celebrate special moments in pop culture, such as sports events, the 15th anniversary of The Lion King, and Wrestlemania, as well as all the holidays and occasions it’s more known for being lit up for. As far as we know, however, they’ve never lit up to celebrate a SciFi show. What better place to start than the iconic series Doctor Who?
