Photos: Local Whovians celebrate Doctor Who at Crash 45

Whovians are desperately loyal, and they have been for fifty years, ever since William Hartnell first hit the BBC as the original Doctor Who. Ten doctors later, with British actor Peter Capaldi set to become the twelfth Doctor beginning with this year's Christmas special, the push to the future began with the Saturday premiere of Doctor Who: The Day of The Doctor, an anniversary occasion that fans everywhere celebrated. Here in Denver, the faithful gathered in costume to watch and party together at Crash 45.

Photographer Kenneth Hamblin III brought back these images from the silver anniversary bash.
