I wonder what single serial they'll take from each Doctor. For Baker it'll probably be Pyramids of Mars or Talons of Wein Chiang, but my vote would be for the Pirate Planet...
The Talons Of Wang Chiang is a six parter it's unlikely they'd show such a long story. It's be a four parter I hope it's The Deadly Assassin.
Assassin for me is quite unusual and not a great representation of the era.

I'd guess they would use a Sarah Jane story to make it more familiar to new who fans so Pyramids Of Mars or Terror Of The Zygons would work.

Though for me his best 4 parter is Robot's Of Death.

I'd guess City of Death for the "Co-written by Douglas Adams!!" publicity (Pirate Planet is 100% Adams, but while I think it's a great story, CoD is much more well-received and is the highest Who ever got in the ratings).

Re: Classic Who on BBC America

My bets: Patrick - Tomb of the Cybermen or The Mind Robber - probably Tomb (although I'd really like them to do The Seeds of Death for US viewers who don't know the Ice Warriors); Jon - The Claws of Axos or The Daemons (because they feature Delgado's Master), maybe The Three Doctors. Tom - Pyramids of Mars or The Robots of Death (I think they'll stick to Hinchcliffe's era); Peter - Caves of Androzani or The Five Doctors; Colin - Vengeance on Varos or Revelation of the Daleks, probably the latter; Sylv - Fenric or Remembrance.

Re: Classic Who on BBC America

I'm still hoping for Horns of Nimon. It's really a good story, and certainly ties in directly with the Matt Smith era. I think most of the fans who talk smack about it haven't actually seen it.

They almost *have* to air the multi-Doctor anniversary specials. Unless they're not going that route for the 50th, then they might not want to!

I'm guessing they'll air the anniversary specials. So:

Troughton - Tomb of the Cybermen
Pertwee - Three Doctors
Tom Baker - Pyramids of Mars
Davison - Five Doctors
Colin Baker - Vengeance on Varos
McCoy - Remembrance of the Daleks

Ahhh... a while back, my sister had to stop over for the night (little matter of a night out and a desire to keep her driving licence).
She's a fan (couldn't avoid it, with a big brother like me), so... "Have you got the Horns of Nimon DVD yet?'Cos I haven't, and I haven't seen it since I was eight..."
Midway through episode two: "How did they get away with this? They must have been drunk, but how did they get away with this? I thought this was good when I was a kid!!! Where's Androids of Tara?"

I haven't seen Terror of the Zygons in years, it would be great if that's the one they chose. But really, anything with Sarah Jane will work for me.

I'd rather see "Genesis of the Daleks." That's a really pivotal one where the Baker era is concerned, and it arguably sets up the Time War arc from the new series.

That's a six parter, it's probably too long.

Re: Classic Who on BBC America

It's just a pity they can't, or won't, show a full episode, then air the commercials, then do the next one. Oh well, I'll take what I can get. Hopefully my sister will have finished knitting my Season 12 Tom Baker scarf on her loom by the time April rolls around. Yes, I will wear it that night.

GotD was probably my favorite of the Baker era, but because of the length, I didn't think it would be a likely candidate. But I agree totally with you that it was the pivotal story, to be sure.

Oh, and this is off-topic but I finished reading 'Watching the Clock' this afternoon and thought it was great.

Thanks! But it's not completely off-topic, since there was that strange blue box in the DTI's vault of temporal artifacts...
