Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation by Cecil Beaton

This week marks the 90th birthday of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was born in 1926. The Queen celebrates two birthdays each year: her actual birthday on the 21st of April and her official birthday on the second Saturday in June. (Trooping of the Colours)

She is the world’s oldest reigning monarch as well as Britain’s longest-lived. In 2015, she surpassed the reign of her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, to become the longest-reigning British monarch and the longest-reigning queen regent in world history.

Looking to celebrate her Majesty’s birthday? First, everyone rise for the national anthem of the United Kingdom.

God save our gracious Queen!

Long live our noble Queen!

God save the Queen!

Send her victorious,

Happy and glorious,

Long to reign over us:

God save the Queen!

50 years after rejecting the part, Brian Blessed has his eyes on the lead role in Doctor Who

Brian Blessed has been talking to Calibre magazine about Doctor Who, and how he’d like to take over in the Tardis – 50 years after refusing the same role - once Peter Capaldi is finished playing the Doctor. 

Back in 1966, Blessed recalls being in “in talks with the producers, who said, ‘We’re very keen for you to be the Doctor, to follow William Hartnell, and we’d like you to play him very young. You’ve got a very vivid imagination, Brian. You can be quite normal and then also very, very eccentric’”.

The mighty Mr Blessed turned down the role due to other commitments, and the job of following in Hartnell’s footsteps eventually went to Patrick Troughton. In 1986, Blessed appeared in the Colin Baker era episode Mindwarp, as King Yrcanos. »
