Let's see... Since I last posted here, I've seen The Ribos Operation
, Remembrance of the Daleks
and Terror of the Autons
. All of them for the first time.
was fun, and reminded me of how much I prefer Romana I over Romana II. Mary Tamm's not only prettier, but she's the better actress, IMO.
Terror of the Autons
was another good one. I realize the Master's schemes were the overarching "plot" of that season, but it would have been nice to get a little glimpse of why
he wanted to destroy humanity in the episode. But regardless, Delgado made a good, sinister counterpart for Pertwee's Doctor. And Jo's kinda fun, she was a nice change of pace from Liz Shaw. I hadn't seen any episodes with her, except The Three Doctors
, since I was a kid. Katy Manning's energy makes up for the awkward writing. She's no Sarah Jane or Leela, though.
... I'm so glad I finally saw it. Bloody flipping brilliant that was, all around. Seven and Ace is one of the best Doctor-Companion combinations of the classic show.
After watching Autons
last night, I decided to begin a rewatch of NuWho leading up to the 50th. So after break for a late dinner, we watched Rose
and The End of the World
. TEotW is probably my favorite Davies-penned episode, and it's been a few years since I've seen it. Felt good.
