The voices that were sent to the Moon as part of Dr Who’s 50th anniversary celebrations have made a safe return to planet Earth and can now be heard at the Moonbouncer website.
Earlier this month, DraftFCB sent Dr Who fans’ voices to moon, and now, to continue the 50th birthday celebrations of the popular TV show, the agency has launched an online time machine that sends viewers spiralling through the history of the interwebs.
Google has commemorated the 50th anniversary of Dr Who by creating a doodle in honour of the popular television show. In addition to featuring cartoon versions of 11 of the characters, the doodle also has an interactive element in the form of a vintage video game.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, DraftFCB has came up with a campaign for Prime that enabled fans of the show to send an audio transmission of their voices on a voyage to the moon. UPDATE: feedback from DraftFCB about the campaign.
Dr Who nerds have been all aflutter this week after Peter Capaldi was named as the new 1000-year-old time-traveller. He's renowned for his role as the potty-mouthed spin doctor Malcolm Tucker in the brilliant show The Thick of It. And this guy has decided to combine the two roles and create a trailer that gives fans a glimpse at what the upcoming series might be like (block your ears children, salty language ahoy).
