Story 010: The Dalek Invasion of Earth

Tuesday, May 9th, 2023

Original broadcast dates, November – December 1964. I wonder if it felt different when you couldn’t binge-watch the whole thing? Must have.

Upon arrival a slide of debris locks the crew out of the TARDIS and they’re forced to try and find help to shift it. It’s a good thing they do, as the Daleks have invaded and plan on taking the planet for a joyride.


Story 004: Marco Polo

Sunday, July 14th, 2013

Original air date February through April 1964.

This is one of the lost episodes.  For some reason, the sound was saved separately, and fans have made various reconstructions.  I’ve found animated version of the first one that is better than no video at all.  For the others, there are photos placed over the audio track.  It is enough to follow the story.


Story 154: Silver Nemesis (MST3k)

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

Original air date November 1988.

This was the 25th anniversary episode of Doctor Who.  It had Ace and the 7th Doctor, Sylvest McCoy. I’d never seen either of them before.  I saw it at Westercon on a panel where they covered it like Mystery Science Theatre 3000.  It deserved that treatment.

Doctor Who being cancelled should be no surprise after things like this.  More when I get to it.


Story 003: The Edge of Destruction

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Original air dates February 1964.

A short one, with only two episodes!


Story 002: The Daleks

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Original air dates December 1963 through February 1964.

The second story is long, and has Doctor Who’s foe, the Daleks in it.


Story 001: An Unearthly Child

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Original air dates November, December 1963.

The very first episode of Doctor Who starts with little explanation of the weird title sequence and sci-fi electronic music.  All that fades away to an ordinary high school.


Watching Doctor Who — All of It!

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

I had an itch lately to watch some Doctor Who, and decided to watch as much of it as I can, in order.

This started with my realizing Ihad never seen a full story with Hartnell or Troughton as the Doctor, and reading a review of a much improved release of a Pertwee story,
