There's another reason for the sound quality at the plant, the soundtrack was altered to remove a song by Fleetwood Mac, the song has since been replaced in the special edition of the story on DVD.
Oh Well, Part 1. It was on the VHS release, and I miss it in the (first) DVD version, even if it is a totally unnecessary addition! Apparently it was restored for the 2011 re-release.

The ugliness of that period in the 70s made that plastic baby factory even creepier. That looked like a horrible place to go to work.
I remember how disasters were shot on film and converted to video. I would be thinking "this is of footage of the 60's 70's", and yet the disaster just happened. The uncanny valley effect makes Autons among the best villains. I remember an episode of Kolchak with dummies in them. Quite effective.

So what do we think the fourth doctor's story will be?

I don't know, but I'm hoping for 'Terror of the Zygons'. I really, really want 'Genesis of the Daleks', but that won't happen due to it being a six-parter. TotZ is far more likely, but there are other worthy candidates as well. I'm guessing it will be an early Baker story, as opposed to the later years.

Robots of Death would be my choice.

I'd wager they might go with Pyramids of Mars or Ark in Space. Actually, they showed Ark in that all too brief point in history BBCA showed classic Who on Saturdays and according to wiki RTD and Moffat say it's a favorite.

Re: Classic Who on BBC America

I was showing a friend the first 3 Doctors Revisited specials and had a thought... does anyone know if they did any interviews with Docs 4-9 for these? Tennant's been in all of them so far, and now we're going to be up to living actors as the subjects.

Also I imagine they were all in the can when she left, so the talking-head bits here are Skinner's last go-round in Who then, as it were.

My hope is that it's one I haven't seen. I have seen Pyramids of Mars and City of Death, but the other suggestions here (that seem likely) would be great. Actually, they all would be great even if I have seen them.

Pyramids was announced weeks ago, as was the DVD release of the first four specials with the corresponding stories.

Damn, I just had Pyramids out from the library not too long ago. I was hoping for a Baker story I hadn't seen, or Zygons.

Still, the stuff before the show will be fun to watch.

Can't wait to see the Tom Baker one. Haven't seen "Pyramids" in ages.

Looks like Tom Baker actually did interviews for the docu, so that'll be cool!

Love the Tom Baker clip in the ads: "I didn't play Doctor Who. I was Doctor Who, there was no acting involved."

Re: Classic Who on BBC America

I think his favorire curse word is "whippets**t" from at least two sources. I must say I have'nt heard that one before.

He was once sitting across from a table from a person and their little dog, which raved every time someone would insert a finger to make a popping sound with the mouth.

He tried this, and the little dog leaped at him and almost bit his lip off Dolarhyde/Freddy Loundes style.

I seem to remember him playing a blind character in a recent program.
One last thought about Pertwee. He visited Alabama once--even though we had tornado warnings that day.

I've seen other famous actors, but when Pertwee entered--I was in awe. I have never seen a person sweep into a room and turn it electric before or since. That is power, and so few people have that.

At the time there was this arguement between British and American actors over something (1980s) and I asked him about it, and apologized for the colonies (I forget what it was about now).
