Having given up on the from-the-start run, Lesley and I breezed through Robots Of Death, Curse Of Peladon, Warriors Gate, and Terror Of The Zygons as relaxing background over the last couple of nights...

When he hears about the local vicar being called the Reverend Magister, I really imagine the Doctor saying "Oh, for fuck's sake, he's just taking the fucking piss now..."

Just finished "The Seeds of Death" for the umpteenth time. I love that deep monotone computer voice!

Yeah, he had that name in Who Killed Kennedy. If he hadn't, I'd have still given him a first name, mind you, since they'd have to had one to charge him under...

And when he was signing the parish records in the leadup to the Daemons...
Wonder if there were any weddings or christenings? And if they were void... bet there's something on fake vicars somewhere in Agatha Christie...

Who Killed Kennedy was one freaky-weird book. Mind you, I'm Canadian so I'm somewhat vague on a lot of the history behind it.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

watched The Myth Makers, The Massacre and The Faceless Ones. didn't care for The Myth Makers at all. The Massacre i thought was pretty good. The Faceless Ones i really enjoyed. i do wish that Ben and Polly could have been in more than a couple episodes of that story though.

Remembrance of the Daleks on Netflix. They had a series of Daleks/Davros stories for the 4th - 7th Doctors on (starting with Genesis of...). I didn't like Remembrance at all, I'm afraid, or Revelation of (6th Doctor) but I liked Genesis and Resurrection of ...(Fifth).

Just as City on the Edge of Forever is widely considered TOS' best episode, many Classic Doctor Who fans consider Genesis of the Daleks to be the best story of the Tom Baker era. For me, it's the scene where the Doctor holds the wires as Sarah and Harry look on, and he asks, "Do I have that right?" (the right to commit genocide, even if it was the Time Lords who told him to).

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

While I do love Remembrance of the Daleks, I do have to say that I detest Revelation of the Daleks. Aside from Davros and that Count figure (who was rather stock, honestly, but at least he was cool), there really isn't anything worthwile in this serial. I just don't think I can stand to watch it a second time, even. The whole sub-plot about that detestable woman and Dr. Jobal made cringe and laugh rather loudly, especially given that woman was both hideously written and portrayed. Absolutely astonished that this rates so high on many people's lists, including the DWM - must be the Harper effect, for sure.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

The 2nd Doctor said goodbye to Jamie & Zoe at the end of "The War Games" and it broke my heart. Again.

Then I found myself napping with "Spearhead from Space" in the background. I do think Liz is delightful.

And I wholeheartedly agree that "Revelation of the Daleks" is dreadful. I like one description I heard of it, that it's like Eric Saward decided he would just do a pastiche of every single story that Robert Holmes ever wrote.
