Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

It's been a year or so, but I know it was either The Keys of Marinus, The Space Museum or The Chase. I know because those are the only three Classic stories I've watched since I initially went through the Classic era in order. I didn't see those three the first time around.

I watched The Happiness Patrol about a week ago. I'd never seen it before and I really enjoyed it.

An entire story? At least 10 years ago.

For single episodes probably The Evil of the Daleks 2 sometime last year.

I rewatched Androids of Tara on Netflix when Mary Tamm died. I wanted to watch Stones of Blood but couldn't find it.

Watching The Movie. God bless number 8 in the Big Finish stories but the movie really is pants. Sylvester does a good turn at the start though.

Actually I wonder if Murray Gold got any queues from this as the music is more like new Who than I remembered.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

I watched The Talons of Weng-Chiang recently. I ended up watching the whole serial in one sitting. That almost always happens to me.
I enjoyed it. I like the bigger scope and sets of characters the classic serials often have. There were some really good supporting characters in this - the professor (?) with his gentlemanly though misguided swashbuckling (I really liked the dinner he had with Leela) and the director of the variety theatre. The setting was great, too.
Unfortunately, I'm out of more stories to watch in chronological order at the moment.

It's really hard not to even though sometimes it's probably unfair to some of the serials that weren't meant to be watch that way.

My last was The Mind Robber because it was one of the scant classic series episodes streaming on Netflix. It's cool that they have all or close to all the new episodes but it'd be great if their classic selection was larger.

I've tried watching this one before but lost interest for whatever reason but I found it pretty watchable this time around. I found faux Jaime quite amusing and Zoe's catsuit is a bonus. Medusa was an interesting use of limited resources.

It's meta nature reminded me some of the new series.
(Copied from a transcript: )
DOCTOR: Of course he is. Don't you understand? This world that we've tumbled into is a world of fiction. Unicorns, minotaur, Gulliver's travels, they're all alive here.
ZOE: Then what are we doing here? What do they want with us?

Sylvester is always great. Hope he crops up in the new series at some point.

Yeah, it's very meta. I also liked Zoe's action scenes with that comic book character whose name I've forgotten yet again. Also, the gag with Jamie's face.

It was a good idea though,

they were pretty good at thinking on their feet in the old shows.

Turned out to be a pretty good addition to the story.

Seeds of Death, I always enjoy the ice warriors.

Not much filler considering its a 6 parter. I like that the invention of the transmat kills off space exploration.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

I watched The Daemons Friday night. It is one of my favorite stories. I enjoyed it as much this time around, as I did back in 1977 when I saw it on PBS.
