New York has featured heavily in storylines from the new series of Doctor Who, and now American fans want to turn the iconic Empire State Building a dazzling shade of TARDIS blue to celebrate the upcoming 50th anniversary of the show.
Fan club NY Sci Fi & Fantasy have launched a petition on change.org, and at the time of writing have already exceeded their initial target of 10,000 signatures, with a total so far of 11,683 supporters of their plan.
The organisers said:
“This is the first time a SciFi show has lasted 50 years. It’s a landmark occasion.
The Doctor has visted NYC many times over the years, most recently earlier this season. Now NYSciFi & Fantasy (www.NYSciFi.com) wants to bring NYC to The Doctor to celebrate!
“We are attempting to partner with the Empire State Building (www.esbnyc.com) to make this happen (all official paperwork was submitted to the Empire State Building on 9/23/13). Help show just how popular this show is by signing the petition and sharing the link. Spread the word via facebook, Twitter, or any way you can! Allons-y!”
