Adolf Hitler

I wear a swastika now. Swastikas are cool.

Not to be confused with Adolf Hitler (showrunner)

Adolf Hitler is our lord and savior, best known as the visionary mastermind who created Doctor Who in 1963 and founded the BBC in 1929. He also did nothing wrong, or so I've been told.


At the end of World War II Hitler fled to Britain where he got his job back at the BBC as Head of Drama.

For many years Hitler worked tirelessly to bring his dream project to the screen, a strange little show about an alien with a time machine. Finally in 1963 his dream was realised and the rest, as they say, is history.


Obviously Doctor Who owes Hitler a tremendous debt of gratitude and it has paid tribute to him many times over the years, most recently when he became a companion to the Eleventh Doctor in the fan-favourite Let's Heil Hitler.
