Re: Where do I start?

I saw the first season. I was slightly discouraged to watch it, assuming each season had (some)teen episodes, but realized it wasn't that many. The Aztecs is the first episode, right? I didn't expect it to start in the middle (unless that was the pilot) but it's something I can watch. I like that classic style of television. I think I'm going to watch all of the classics before moving on to the 2005 series.

I hear people mentioning "Rose", "Pertwee", and "McCoy". Are they people who played DW or episodes (I'm a noob).

Rose is both the name of the 9th doctors first episode and the name of his companion.

Jon Pertwee played the 3rd Doctor and Sylvestor McCoy played the 7th doctor.

Also, First Series (Season in American terms) is actually 42 episodes, which makes up 8 Stories (All of them now available, except for the 4th Story/Serial, which is made up of 7 Episodes, and is currently lost. There are still alot of episodes lost from the Black and White era)

Nobody could've imagined back then anyone would want to watch reruns and that there would be a market for Home Media, so lots of episodes got wiped (The films took up lots of space and was expensive), however, many have been discovered, from copies distributed around the world that never came back for wiping). There are two episodes still mising from the 7th Story, also, but, they have been animated, so, it's only the 4th story of the first Series which still remains missing.

Second Series, is all found, aside from two episodes missing of the 6th Story. Though, all the missing episodes, do have Reconstructions available (Telesnaps, with the Audio track, and some have text narration to let you know some stuff you can't see via the frozen picture)

Re: Where do I start?

I'll stick with what Netflix is offering and after completion of the classics, I'll go back to see what was missed before jumping into the current series.

Re: Where do I start?

The Mind Trap was pretty good. The start was trippy and it was a great adventure. I liked seeing the familiar story book characters (I knew that was rapunzel's hair the second he caught the rope). I did roll my eyes on how easy Karkus was defeated but the sword fight later made up for it. D'Artagnan and Lancelot were good calls by the doctor.

The Mind Robber is the actual name, though The Mind Trap is actually a better title, thinking about it!
The behind-the-scenes stuff is that episode one was added on to the existing four-part script after there were problems with the previous serial - hence the low-cost production (no guest actors, no new sets, even the robot costumes were borrowed from another BBC SF series). But it's still brilliantly creepy!

Re: Where do I start?

I wasn't a fan of Spearhead From Space but I really enjoyed The Three Doctors. The concept of that episode was fantastical. I have a feeling I'll see Omega again.

Re: Where do I start?

But I want to buy a house with a maid for Liz, when all I want to do to Jo is tape her mouth shut so he shuts the hell up.

Every one of the Jo Grant stories would have been at least half the size if Liz had boots on the ground instead of the knob Jo Grant.

If that was directed to me, I have no idea what it means. I just started watching Dr. Who and still learning the names.

LOL, yea, Guy being Guy.

Translation: The sophisticated lady Companion in Spearhead From Space (Liz Shaw) is a Goddess and the Hippie Companion in The Three Doctors (Jo Grant) is a shrill dumbass who screwed up so much it took the Doctor longer to resolve the Story then if Liz had stuck around longer.
