    An Unearthly Child, always fun to go back to this Susan was so much more interesting in the pilot.

    She had a strange fey quality mixed with her strong scientific knowledge that quickly gave way to hysterics in later episodes.

    Just watching the comedy sketches on the extras I'd forgotten all about them.

    I watched Planet of the Giants earlier this week, first time I had seen it, interesting pacing with parts 3 & 4 cut together. It only runs a bit longer than a new Who episode and would work pretty well as a story for a modern Doctor, I could imagine 11 and the Ponds in this story.

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    Last one I watched was "The War Games." I liked it more than I remembered. It moved faster than I remembered. And the guest stars were all pretty good (except for the one Mexican general).

    The last one was I watched was "The Ark in Space," last Christmas, as one of hubby's nephews is a new Doctor Who fanatic. He wanted to see what the "old" show was like, so we pulled up a random Tom Baker episode.

    He was not impressed. :lol:

    Paradise Towers. McCoy is my favorite Doctor and I initially intended to go through his stories in order. But real life got in the way and I got distracted, but I hope to continue watching his serials in the future.

    I watched this a couple of weeks ago. Not the best story but the Doctor does look cool strolling away from the explosion.

    I watched Survival. I don't like the seventh Doctor but it was entertaining.

    Watched "The Invasion" parts 1-4 earlier this week. Waiting eagerly for Netflix to send the second disc.

    Very enjoyable stuff. I quite liked the animated recreations of the missing eps. It'd be great if that approach were to be used with other incomplete/missing serials...

    Quite a few lately as I recently got Volume 5 of the missing stories audio box sets. So Enemy Of The World (very good particularly in the later episodes, though the Doctor, Jamie & Victoria are sidelined), Web Of Fear(One of the greats), Fury From The Deep(loved this, great script, characters and performances) & Wheel In Space (not as good as the others and too long but still a fun story).

    Also Planet Of The Giants and though I'm a fan of era this isn't one of the better stories - I was glad it wasn't 4 episodes long!

    It's been a year or so, but I know it was either The Keys of Marinus, The Space Museum or The Chase. I know because those are the only three Classic stories I've watched since I initially went through the Classic era in order. I didn't see those three the first time around.

    I watched The Happiness Patrol about a week ago. I'd never seen it before and I really enjoyed it.

    An entire story? At least 10 years ago.

    For single episodes probably The Evil of the Daleks 2 sometime last year.

    I rewatched Androids of Tara on Netflix when Mary Tamm died. I wanted to watch Stones of Blood but couldn't find it.
