Oh I hate those 90 minute videos, although at least the Who ones make some sense, the Blakes 7 ones on the other hand...
Oh I remembver now. Blake's 7: The Beginning cut straight from Blake's trial to the start of episode two, didn't it, missing the next 30 minutes.
Something like that, I've tried to blank them out to be honest From watching B7 on it's first run it was probably around 91 when I saw those videos and I was horrified, this show I'd loved growing up was some kind of abomination that wasn't half the show I remembered! Luckily once they brought the proper box sets out I realised I still loved it!

I watched The Pyramid of Mars. It was ok, but forgettable. The villain had kind of an interesting design, but honestly the story felt like it was stretched too long with 4 episodes. Next up for the 4th Doctor will be The Android Invasion.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Many years ago at a local science fiction convention, my roommates and I had an open room for Doctor Who videos. For some reason I have never been able to fathom, people wanted to see Pyramids of Mars... over... and... over... and... over.

To this day I cannot stand that story.

Pyramids of Mars is absolutely riveting. Love that story.

Moonbase. I was really looking forward to this but was left a bit underwhelmed.

The animation was ok in the first episode but I didn't enjoy part 3 and I put that down to the animation.

The making of doc was more entertaining.

The Ark. No, not that Ark in Space, the first one. I was pleasantly surprised to see the First Doctor performing actual medical care. Pity the Monoids were one-dimensional jerkass villains.

The Sensorites. Really enjoyed it, too. One of the few episodes in which Susan is interesting.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

I watched The Android Invasion, which was ok but not very memorable. I then watched The Five Doctors, which I enjoyed. I wish that Tom Baker had actually appeared, but besides that it was a good story. It was also my first time watching something with the 5th Doctor (besides his web episode with Tennant) and the first time I've seen the Classic Who version of The Master. The 5th Doctor seemed cool, and I liked this version of the master better than the modern version (who isn't bad, but was a bit too goofy) and he was also about 1000x better than the movie version.

The only good actors to ever play the Master were Roger Delgado and Anthony Ainley. Both so charming, so suave... so delightfully evil.

Yeah. That's my verdict in a nutshell as well. I later read an interview with RTD and Verity Lambert where Russell claimed it was a favourite of his. But maybe he was joking.

I've yet to see any of the classic Masters except for Delgado. I'm not sure they'll be able to measure up. He was fantastic in the role and the interactions between him and the Doctor could make up even for weak stories. I did like Simms' take a lot, too. I think it was a good decision to play the character differently from the classic version.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Just watched The Chase for the first time and thought it was a lot of fun. Obviously there wasn't much of a plot, with the Daleks simply chasing the TARDIS around from place to place, but it was still cool seeing them pop in and out of so many different environments so quickly. In fact it almost had the feel of a New Series story in that way.

Another one I finally finished was The Mind Robbers. I had trouble getting through it once before, but this time I thought the story actually worked rather well.

Ainley's Master should've been replaced after Peter Davison left IMO, his last three appearances weren't as good as his appearances against Davison.
