Re: Classic Who on BBC America
I'm watching "Earthshock" now, and there was a scene where the Doctor was giving a long expository monologue rather quickly and urgently, and I realized I was reminded of Jonny Lee Miller's delivery as Sherlock Holmes on Elementary.
David Tennant's super fast delievery was clearly inspired by the way Davison could do the same thing. It's a shame we didn't see any of that in Time Crash.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"
