Good news, there will be Doctor Who on Boxing Day this year (2019). The (perhaps) less good news – it’s every available classic episode streamed on new service BritBox as reported on The Doctor Who Companion: EVERY SURVIVING EPISODE OF CLASSIC DOCTOR WHO COMING TO BRITBOX ON BOXING DAY. Enjoy! *** Message Ends ***
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…
I think the Radio Times does an excellent job with it’s on-line Doctor Who coverage, and the recent post Rare photos of Jon Pertwee filming his Doctor Who debut 50 years ago is another great example. It’s a set of black and white shots from the filming of Spearhead from Space and well worth looking…
And with one last outing, the Doctor Who Companion completes its tour of the Jon Pertwee years. Simon Danes gives his thoughts in REVIEWED: DOCTOR WHO SEASON 11 – SELF-DESTRUCTION and as usual it’s well worth a read. It reminded me of some personal highlights from Season 11 as well.
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!?
