A Doctor Who 50th anniversary tribute by a seriously talented animator.
When I was nearly three years old, my mum scooped me up from whatever it was I was doing and sat me down in front of the TV with my younger sister.
“You sit here and watch this.” she said, "This is important."
Watching the smiling, already elderly but clearly youthful man walking through and waving to the joyful crowds under the bright sunshine became what I’m pretty sure is my first memory.
I had no idea of who he was, what he had done, what he had been through and what he meant to all those people; but through some combination of my mum’s words and the extraordinary energy of the scene, what I saw on 11th February 1990 has stuck with me ever since. Watching Nelson Mandela walk to freedom marked the first time I started to realise that the world was much wider, much more troubled, and so much greater than I knew.
We haven’t really lost Mandela, because he gave us everything and more than we could ever expect from one person. He has gone to his well-deserved rest, we just need to make sure we honour his life, his work and his legacy.
Because we won’t get someone else like him for a very long time.

Autumn leaves and reflections at Sheffield Park, Sussex, UK
Genuinely overexcited about PastPresentFuture Doctor Who followed by Sherlock stuff. I’m going to edit some nice pictures of autumn leaves to calm down a bit.
