Plus in this era of not enough hours in the day there's something quite handy about a TV show I can watch in bite sized chunks
Ah,the thrill of a 25-minute "hit" of Doctor Who
. I remember it fondly...
actually I think that some of the charm was the fact that you could take a half hour of Doctor who in, and then go back to work, with anticipation for the next day's lunch hour..
much of the magic lost on the classic who was the colours depicting the 60's mauve era..psychadelics and such that were in some episodes.. would the impact of the classic star trek have been such had it been in black and white only?? what about the zaniness of the classic lost in space.. originally it too was in black and white, and yet, the colourised version is what most people purchase on DVD..
all I am saying is to give those of us who prefer colourised episodes the option, to not at least have the option is pretty horrible.. let the fans decide which version they prefer..
if the few colourised episodes don't sell very well, then don't do more, and then at least it was tried.. but to not even allow 1 release in colour is just closed minded, and tyrannical in action by the BBC..
What nonsense - why should there be an option for something that never existed.
I've heard the BBC be criticised for a lot of things but for not colourising B&W TV must be the most absurd.
Where are these fans who desperately want to see it in colour!? If you can't cope with watching it in B&W, stop watching 60's Who.
