Coming this May, 2020 Third DoctorAdventures Volume 6. The cover gives away a lot but we now have even more details – the Brigadier is confirmed (hinted strongly on the page) as well as Sgt Benton. It’s the 1970s all over again!
While doing the research I described in Genesis of the Doctor, I was reminded (it was an old bookmark!) of a piece on Doctor Who The Daemons I also found on the BBC, and also rather abandoned. (And also another classic episode unreviewed!) Without further ado, here’s Out of this world in Aldbourne, all about…
The 2020 run of Short Trips kicked off with Sharon Bidwell’s first Big Finish story – The Infinite Today. Clearly a riff on Groundhog Day, Katy Manning performs this Jo Grant and Eleventh Doctor story. Nick Briggs takes the director’s seat and it runs at around 45 minutes.
Since I had a rewatch (after nearly 50 years) of season 7 of Doctor Who for The Doctor Who Companion, I’ve had a few Pertwee stories on my pile of DVDs to watch at some point. I’ve just finished Colony in Space and here are a few thoughts. I would have done a review, but…
Time flies (if that means anything when dealing with Doctor Who!) and the DWC is already up to Season 10 in its scrutiny of the show. It’s Rick Lundeen who guides us through the events of this solid season’s entertainment. It’s all here: REVIEWED: DOCTOR WHO SEASON 10 – RETURNS AND FAREWELLS.
Tyler Harris takes us through his analysis of the Third Doctor‘s third set of stories, Season 9. Tyler also took a look at Season 8, so you might want to read that one first. His latest piece is: REVIEWED: DOCTOR WHO SEASON 9 – STICKING THE LANDING.
The ink is hardly dry on my Season 7 piece, and already the DWC is covering Season 8. This is where the show reaches its definitive (with apologies to Sarah Jane Smith) lineup: Jo Grant, the Master, UNIT and the Brig. What’s not to like!?
