Doctor Wha – Film Poem

October 3, 2018

What’s a better example of change and stability than Doctor Who? The Doctor is over 2000 years old and still counting birthdays, and yet they’re capable of changing their face, personality, fashion sense, gender…

As we know, the Doctor’s TARDIS affects the brains of its passengers so they can speak and understand all the languages and dialects they may encounter. To celebrate National Poetry Day the National Library of Scotland and Scottish Poetry Library have filmed ‘Doctor Wha’ by James Robertson which celebrates the Doctor in Scots.

James Robertson starts his poem and is helped on the way by a group of Scots speakers including Scots Scriever, Michael Dempster.
