Doctor Who: How I Started Loving My Favourite TV Show

Asking me who my first Doctor was is not as simple a question as you’d think it is. I have three first Doctors, which confuses most people. 655 more words

Second Doctor Who Audio Annual review

Like the first Doctor Who Audio Annual, this is a two-disc set of six stories, on for each of the first six Doctors, each read by an actor who played a companion (or the Master). 174 more words

The Sea Devils

So here we have Doctor Who and the Eocenes.  No, that’s not right either.  And so begins an unfortunate trend of the people who make Doctor Who listening to feedback and trying to do something about it, which has invariably worsened the series. 1,463 more words

Inferno

One of the working titles for Inferno which always stuck in my mind was The Mo-Hole Project, because it sounded so odd.  It is actually a reference to Don Houghton’s inspiration for this story, Project Mohole, a US drilling project in Mexico which started in 1957 and was abandoned in 1966.  1,944 more words

The Ambassadors of Death

The Ambassadors….. OF DEATH!!!  Despite being seven episodes long (and unlike The Silurians never quite justifying its length) this feels incredibly modern.  It is one of only a handful of Classic Series stories to get a proper trailer, it has pre-credits sequences (well, mid-credits really), and the aliens are kept hidden away in spacesuits.  1,942 more words

The Silurians

Doctor Who and the Silurians, to give it it’s full and very Target-esque title, is superficially a Second Doctor story.  There is a base that is under attack, being run by a blinkered fanatic who puts his work above any other considerations, and a human who is working with the invaders for his own personal gain, this time to take the credit for the scientific discoveries they promise to reveal to him.  1,781 more words
