This morning I gave my friend Jane (see March 13) a book for her son Milo. Jane is British and her husband Max (see March 25) is Austrian/German, so Milo, like our son Theo is half-British. Like Jane, I have enjoyed sharing some British tv with my not-so-British offspring. One of the programs I’ve enjoyed watching with Theo is Dr. Who, a sci-fi tv series that began in 1963 and has as its main character an eccentric time traveler, or Time Lord, simply known as The Doctor. He travels in time using the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimensions in Space), a sort of spaceship that looks like a British police phone box.
