Doctor Who's 50th birthday celebrations down under

Joel Rose counts himself as one of Australia's biggest Doctor Who fans.

A keen viewer since he was five years old, Joel grew up watching the hit series, even naming his daughter after one of his favourite characters.

"You get friendships out of it and it really impacts your life in terms of how you live. It makes you a better person." he says.

Joel celebrated the 50th anniversary of the show in traditional Australian style, with a BBQ.
