Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

The last one I saw was The Awakening, season 21's two parter and it's still not a bad story, it was nice seeing Dennis Lil again. Season 21 was pretty good overall I think and Peter Davison has said that if his second season was good as his third he would've had a fourth.

Yeah Leela's departure was a bit odd...was it as left field as Mel's though? Doctor I'm leaving you for a man who's likely to sell me into slavery as soon as the Tardis leaves...

Yeah but Peri's married to Brian Blessed.
Well, yea, I was pointing out how she got screwed either way

Well Nicola Bryant liked that they killed off Peri, she was surprised that Peri was brought back at the end. I liked her death myself it was shocking and well done, unlike Adric's death.

The Ark in Space. A good story, well ahead of the effects ability's of its day.

The Pyramids of Mars. Neat. Enjoyed this immensely! [potential spoiler ahead]


Is the Doctor trapping Sutekh within the Time Corridor the reason why lightning strikes the TARDIS in the opening credits, Sutekh is attempting to attack him? I like to think so... unless there's another reason I am not aware of?

Lazy Sunday afternoon in the Space Museum.

First time I have watched it even though I've had it for ages.

Could have been either The Happiness Patrol or Dragonfire.

Speaking of Dragonfire, actually I thought it was a pretty cool story! I don't know why the doctor decided to climb over the edge but that's hardly extremely important to the story.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

The extra on Space Museum about cast holidays is pretty funny.

Dragonfire introduces Ace so I can forgive it the weird climbing over the ledge scene.

See, what's a redeeming feature for some is an aggravating factor for others.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Just finished watching THE FACE OF EVIL with my little one. I was amazed that, after 30-some years, I still vividly remembered a lot of the details, like the look and sound of the laser-type guns (they played a very distinctive melody when firing) and the part with Xoanon chanting "Destroy and be free!"

Hopefully I don't have a four year old screaming that and ripping the place apart for the next couple weeks.

Funny you bring this up, as Dragonfire is the next serial I'm going to watch. For the first time no less.

I watched the 1st 3 parts of "Terror of the Autons." Roger Delgado is the man!

Exactly! It's like when I was recently showing my friend some pictures of some of the classic Doctors. We got to the photos of Davison, C. Baker, & McCoy and she mentioned (without any hint of irony or sarcasm), "I like the question marks on their outfits."

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

I like the question mark motif too.

Anyways, I just watched Dragonfire last night.

I quite liked it. My favorite of McCoy's era so far (I'm watching them in order, for the first time as well). It was fun to see the introduction of Ace; and the exit of Mel (though it did feel a tad sudden, there was literally no build up to it).

Much has been made of the silly "cliffhanger" at the end of the first episode, and it is silly, but it certainly didn't ruin my enjoyment of the story.

Question marks ok when they're used subtly, and it would have been better if every Doctor in a row from Baker to McCoy hadn't had them as part of the outfit.

I quite fancy a shirt with ?s on the collar though

Back to the op, I started rewatching The Mind Robber last night, should have it finished over the next few days.

Do other people watch them as individual eps with gaps in between, or do people just watch them one after another in a row btw?

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Depends how long they are. I started watching the Chase lase night it's quite long so I will watch between now and Sunday.

Sunday afternoon when I have the house to myself and tend to watch a whole disk and then - guilty pleasure - fall asleep on the couch listening to the commentary.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Generally, I watch the lot in one go. I remember being annoyed at having to wait a day - or worse, a weekend - to see the next episode (patience has never been my strong suit ); now I can avoid that irritant. Finding the time to watch entire serials (of any duration) is another issue altogether, though.
