The death knell for the Seventh Doctor

doctor_who_sylvester_mccoy_survivalA more sober piece of reading you may have missed this week is the Den of Geek piece Doctor Who: the 1988 report that sounded its death knellThe basic facts are, of course, widely known. The show was less popular, the management lost faith having steered it into a scheduling nightmare and so forth. I was one of many who (at the time) despaired of what few episodes I watched and didn’t like Mel (sorry Bonnie).

Seeing it all in black and white is still a stark read, but worth it.

You can skip straight to the report here.

Were you a fan in the 1980s? Did you rate the show at the time? Let me know!
