Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Just yesterday I watched Planet of Giants and Vengeance on Varos. Planet of Giants was good, though very predictable. Vengeance on Varos was pretty cool.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

I'm not a huge fan of "Vengeance on Varos" as a whole, but I do think Sil was a fun little villain. I wish they'd bring him back on the classic series.

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?
When I'm unemployed, I tend to have time to watch them in one go. But now that I'm working, I tend to only fit in 1 or 2 episodes at a time before bed.

Varos only has one flaw if you ask me, yes Jason Connery I am looking at you!

I tend to watch them individually. Sometimes I might watch a couple in one go, but rarely the entire story.

I got to admit that I always get Frontios, Meglos and Varos mixed up.

Watched Curse of Fenric today. It was alright, though I'm beginning to notice a lot of tropse that keep popping up throughout Sylvester McCoy's run. Specifically dead people reanimated and Nazis.

Terror Of The Vervoids, Pip and Jane Baker's first Doctor Who story and it's still overly complicated, I guess that's so that we don't figure out whothe killer is too early on. The charge of genocide came out of nowhere though.

Actually, Pip and Jane did the previous season's The Mark of the Rani.

I'm still watching the chase, the console room looks huge in thi story and there is a lot of light jazz as the TARDIS flies through the vortex.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

I've been a crabby viewer lately so I figured I'd take on a story that is NOT generally loved so my current bias wouldn't be wasted on a good episode I might enjoy more at some other time.

What did I choose: Horns of Nimon! I could see where when Who might've been fighting for respectability that the Nimon costume and over-the-top acting by head sycophant Soldeed might have caused some facepalms in the day. However, now that time has passed and that's part of the charm of old Who it adds a welcome funny edge. Very Ming the Merciless, that Soldeed. I like the Nimon's voice even if he seems a bit too gangly and upright to be as physically imposing as he perhaps should be.

The Doctor is pretty amusing in this one with lots of teeth and curls charm being effortlessly displayed and Lalla Ward puts in a pretty earnest performance taking up the slack on the serious action hero side. Her outfit seems very Doctorish to boot.

That's right my fault.

The Tomb of the Cybermen.

Somehow this serial gets even more brilliant every time I watch it. Troughton's Doctor rocked.

Now I'm watching some of the episodes on the Lost in Time set.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Ok I just finished watching the chase, this whole story is full of crazy nonsense.
Dracula, Frankenstein's monster fight Daleks. A robot duplicate of the doctor that looks absolutely nothing like him, Steven has a teddy bear and Barbara and Ian get a Prisoneresque whizz round London after they leave.

A must watch.

The Tomb of the Cybermen (Second Doctor).

I've seen every available Second Doctor serial now except The Invasion and The Krotons. This one is definately one of Troughton's best.

The Three Doctors (Third Doctor).

An excellent story hinged on an excellent antagonist. I know Omega returns in the Fifth Doctor serial Arc of Infinity and I'm looking forward to it.

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

Had a spare day today and filled some of it by watching The Masque of Mandragora (not entirely sure why, but I've always liked this one), The Robots of Death (one of my favourite Leela serials) and Genesis of the Daleks (pretty much as good as Who - classic or new - gets, IMO).

Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

I've been rewatching 10 recently which has stopped me watching classic serials.

Once I've been for a bit of excercise and cut some firewood I will get some in this afternoon I think.
