I really liked Colin's Doctor even though his stories were pretty damn weak. Revelation of the Daleks, though, is phenomenal. I adore that story.

Re: Classic Who on BBC America

I have never understood the appeal of Revelation Of The Daleks, I think it's vastly overrated and not very well done and the Daleks are just barely in it.

I wasn't aware the Daleks ever wore bear costumes.

It was part of their plan to infiltrate the Hundred Acre Wood.

Didn't Troughton throw his shaggy bear coat over one?

Re: Classic Who on BBC America

Anyway, I hope the McCoy stroy for this month is either The Curse Of Fenric or Rememberance Of The Daleks, both of which are excellent stories.

Depends on how official you want to get. Yes, it's Remembrance. I don't know if they've officially announced it, but ... They are doing those box sets of the stories and docs. They did one for 1-4, and another for 5-8, with the story, the documentary, and, well, nothing else. The info was up on all the DVD sites listing the content well before the Colin Baker story aired, with the list of the four stories, including RotD.

Looks like it's airing Saturday at 7PM this time. The listing scared me as it mentions the Rani but I guess that was just referring to the retrospective part of the special.

I finally watched Dr Who Revisited: Vengeance on Varos and wasn't terribly impressed. It just didn't hold my attention. And I've never been a fan of the Sixth Doctor.

Heh, I've seen Remembrance a couple of times but this is the first time I recognized Jeffrey from Fresh Prince. Should've known those Daleks were up to no good in the neighborhood.

Re: Classic Who on BBC America

I forgot this was on last night -- I've been too busy finishing up my manuscript that's due tomorrow -- but luckily my DVR caught it. I dropped in briefly and saw they did "Remembrance of the Daleks," which is a bit disappointing -- I wanted "Battlefield." But those were the two obvious best choices, so I'm glad they at least went with my second-favorite.

Re: Classic Who on BBC America

I had completely forgotten about last month's, so I set the DVR to record the 6th Doctor's special and then the all of the McCoy stuff (which I haven't seen yet).

Am in total agreement with those who said that Nicola Bryant has aged well. She still looks great and I enjoyed her interview segments the most.

Re: Classic Who on BBC America

This special made me remember why the Seventh Doctor was at one time my favorite and that it began with Remembrance of the Daleks. I really agree with the points Moffat made about the Seventh Doctor, of how he started off very much the silly clown in his first series and then later became rather steely and someone to be feared by his enemies.
