I also liked Zoe's action scenes with that comic book character whose name I've forgotten yet again.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

I just finished up "The Mind Robber" last night thanks to Netflix Instant. It can be difficult for me to get back into the classic Who stories given how the series and television storytelling has evolved, but I've just hoovered up three stories in a week (Mind Robber, plus "Spearhead from Space" and "The Leisure Hive").

Last one I watched is Remembrance of the Daleks, though the last one I experienced was The Power of the Daleks via audio.

Watched "The Android Invasion" last week, thanks to Netflix. We've been slowly working through their catalog of Classic Who with our two youngest kids. Making sure they're not like their peers who only know Tennant and Smith.

Revenge of the Cybermen. Kelman the Cyber agent has a lot of nifty gadgets?

Poor old Harry Sullivan, I always liked him, shame he died so young.

Carnival of Monsters. Not one of the third Doctor's best outings but still enjoyable.

Remembrance of the Daleks. 7th Doctor at his finest:

You're good parents. My friends have an 8 month old daughter and they tell me that she finds classic Who very soothing.

I was recently talking to a guy that bragged to me that his mother had watched every episode of Doctor Who. I asked him to clarify if he meant every episode of the old series too or just the new series. He answered, "No, she's seen the old series too. You know, the guy that came before Tennant..." It's insane. It's only been 7 years and yet Eccleston is already considered "old series" by the ignorant masses. And they can't even remember his name! He's just "the guy that came before Tennant."

I find it even sadder that I'll never be able to make that claim because not all episodes can be watched anymore.

And that is PRECISELY why we're making sure our kids see the classics!

I saw Hartnell and Troughton in the UK as a child, then moved back to the States and only caught the occasional Tom Baker and Peter Davison stories on PBS. Netflix has given me the opportunity to catch up on all that I missed as well as being a source for dependable entertainment that we can share with our (now) 17 & 20-year olds. Alas, it came too late for the 28 year old. He's not yet converted to Whovian. But he's a lifelong Trekkie, so I don't feel that we've failed entirely!

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

"The War Games", Patrick Troughton's last serial (well, as the full-time Doctor, anyway). Possibly a bit padded over 10 parts, but it's 10 parts featuring Troughton so who cares? Very enjoyable stuff.

It's depressing, but hardly surprising, that there are people who are unaware of or don't care about the existence of classic Who. Such is life, I suppose.

The War Games is fantastic, we need more 10 partners.

It is depressing, but usefull to know who these people are so they can be monitored.
