Doctor Who? On this day in 1963

On Saturday November 23, 1963 the BBC premier of Doctor Who aired.

The premise of the show is to follow a time travelling extraterrestrial being, known as The Doctor, on his adventures. His vehicle of choice, known as a TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) cleverly disguised as a policecall box.  The TARDIS contains a Chameleon circuit which is supposed to take on the appearance of local objects, however, due to a malfunction, the TARDIS remains as a blue police call box.

The first Doctor was played by actor William Hartnell and since then there have been 13 actors who have played the role of the Time Lord, each one masterfully transitioned from one incarnation of the Doctor to the next. The current Doctor, number 13 is played by  Jodie Whittaker, and is the first female Doctor since the series debut.

When Nature Fights Back- This day in 1820

On November 20, 1820 the the American whaler, Essex from Nantucket Mass, was attacked and sunk by a Sperm whale in the Southern Pacific, thousands of miles off the coast of South America. 

Captain George Pollard and his crew of 20 were forced to make for land in the whaleboats.

What follows is a harrowing tale of dehydration, starvation and cannibalism. 

Accounts of the ordeal were later written by First Mate, Owen Chase and Cabin Boy, Thomas Nickerson and later inspired Herman Melville to write Moby Dick.

Whaling is hard, but fortunately finding the right Point of Sale system for your hospitality or retail business is easy.
