It has featured in a handful of Doctor Who adventures including the moment the Doctor saved New Yorkers from being turned into pigs in Daleks in Manhattan. But now fans want the Empire State Building to honour the show’s fiftieth birthday by turning “Tardis blue”.
Called “Petition to light up the Empire State Building TARDIS blue on November 23rd to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who!,” the website says it “wants to bring NYC to The Doctor to celebrate,” his anniversary.
"This is the first time a SciFi show has lasted 50 years. It’s a landmark occasion," it reads. "The Doctor has visited NYC many times over the years.
“We are attempting to partner with the Empire State Building (www.esbnyc.com) to make this happen. 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!”
Their petition has so far collected more than 6,000 signatures from across the world. Their target is 10,000 names.

There’s a little girl waiting in a garden. She’s going to wait a long while, so she’s going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that if she’s patient, the days are coming that she’ll never forget. Tell her she’ll go to sea and fight pirates. She’ll fall in love with a man who’ll wait two-thousand years to keep her safe. Tell her she’ll give hope to the greatest painter who ever lived and save a whale in outer space. Tell her this is the story of Amelia Pond. And this is how it ends.
