In anticipation of the new series episode I watched Invasion of the Dinosaurs. Pretty enjoyable really. Interesting premise and message with the dinosaurs as more of a fun plot element rather than sole focus.

I like the first episode quite a bit with empty desolate London. Funny how anachronistic just trying to hitch a ride seems these day or a place being dead on Sundays. Pretty gory death scene there especially now in color. Thought the TRex smashing through the house was legitimately cool. People knock the dodgy effects but I would've loved them as a kid and still do in large part. Probably could've done without the extended dino clashing.

Love the Doctor here with his mugging for his mug shot, the retrotastic Whomobile looking awesome and loads ( too much? ) of Venusian martial arts. Could anyone get away with pinky rings and cloaks like Pertwee? Plus he actually saved the day in this one by reversing the polarity.

Tomb of the Cybermen, just to remind myself why I like Patrick Troughton as the Doctor so much.

Time Flight, good example of how quickly the Doctor can move on after losing a companion.

Looks like I have time to fit in the 5 Doctors this afternoon, think I'll listen to the Davey T commentary.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

I got through parts 1 & 2 of "Spearhead from Space" last week. It's actually the very first Doctor Who I ever watched back when my aunt loaned me some DVDs back in 2004. I'd say I certainly like this story a lot more now that I actually understand what the hell is going on and who all these people are.

Even then, it feels kinda like a different show than even most of the other Pertwee serials. But the whole thing looks amazing on film. It's a shame most of the rest of the show wasn't shot on film too.

Oh, he was always looking for a graceful way to ditch Tegan. I mean, do you see how excruciating he finds the prospect of her joining up with them again at the end of "Arc of Infinity"? He hates that idea even more than Tegan & Nyssa hate the idea of the Doctor inviting Turlough along with them at the end of "Mawdryn Undead."

I find it even sadder that I'll never be able to make that claim because not all episodes can be watched anymore.
Well, if you've seen all of the ones that do still exist, I call that a good faith effort. You can still claim "all" by that point. In fact, I don't even think episodes should count against one's total until they've been released on DVD. So you're off the hook for "Reign of Terror," "The Tenth Planet," "The Ice Warriors," "The Ambassadors of Death," "The Mind of Evil," "Terror of the Zygons," "Airlock," & "The Underwater Menace, Part 2." (What about "Planet of the Giants"? Is that out yet?)

Yes, it's pretty good too.

Parts 3 and 4 were cut together to to make it a shorter runnig time so the whole thing comes in about the same length as a modern episode.

Yeah, which is odd given I liked Rose with Nine, and I liked Ten with anyone else. It's just together they went all school-girly for some reason!

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Earthshock was the last one I saw, it's always been one of my favorites, the fifth Doctor's catch phrase came from this one, the Cybermen stuck halfway though the door was awesome and I LOVED Tegan's "Mouth on legs" line. But for me my favorite part of the story was the end of part three where the screen is split three ways and you can see the revived Cyberman army, Malcolm Clarke's music was awesome thoughout but especially in that scene.

Pulled finger and watched The Daleks Masterplan 2, The Web of Fear 1 and bit of Inferno.

For shits and giggles I turned the chroma down on the telly: Inferno suddenly became more moody and atmospheric!

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

I nearly watched Earthshock on Sunday, going through my dvd's I find my copy of the Twin Dilemma has gone missing.

It's pretty annoying as I have all the dvd's that have been released so far.

They were in a mess so I neatly reordered my shelves and it's gone.

Can't quite bring myself to buy it again, but I probably will.

Wait, the 5th Doctor had a catchphrase?

I just finished parts 3 & 4 of "Spearhead from Space" last night. Liz Shaw is absolutely adorable! (It was weird though. Throughout part 4, I kept feeling like I was watching part 5 of 6, not part 4 of 4. I kept waiting for the next cliffhanger and all I got was a resolution.)

I thought Brave Heart Tegan was his catch phrase.

Yes it was and Earthshock was where it started as an ad-lib at that.
