  1. This was really difficult to decide. This whole season is so outstanding it's really hard to pick a favorite. Really the only stories here I don't like much are The Unquiet Dead (not sure why) & AOL/WW3 (if only for the fart jokes)
  2. I have been wishing practically my whole life that I could travel with Peter Davison & any combination of his companions possible, but particularly poor dear old maligned Adric. It is not his fault the writers didn't know how to write for him & that the directors didn't really give him much direction.
  3. This is a tough question. I usually start the Not-We with Ark in Space (since it's the 1st one I watched as a small child), but here are my recommendations, by Doctor: Hartnell: An Unearthly Child (Pilot & aired 1st ep, if both are available). I would stay away from pure historicals such as The Aztecs unless the viewer is prepared for there not to be any aliens in DW (heresy, these days) Troughton: The Mind Robber. This story is so damn surreal I could scream. Pertwee: Inferno. This is honestly the only 7 part story that never feels padded to me. Davison: Earthshock. The Cybermen are at their absolute best here. C. Baker: Revelation of the Daleks. It's really a shame it took the production team until the end of Colin's first season to figure out how to write 2 45-min episodes (although the cliffhanger for this one is one of the worst). McCoy: Curse of Fenric. This era is particularly dire & it really takes me a lot of effort to come up with one story that won't have a newbie shaking his/her head & saying "Why did they ever bring this show back??"

    Episode 02

    I think I am going thru withdrawals after only 2 episodes! This 'cast is great & really brings back memories! Thanks so much for this & I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment!!
  5. I'll second that. Robots of Death also feature what I think is the best companion that never was. Which one? It's packed full of interesting characters...but if you mean D-84, I agree...far better than k9 Toos gets my vote. Or maybe Zilda (if only for the outfit).
  6. I used to dislike Carnival of Monsters quite a lot, I found it repetitive & dull. Then I discovered that this was because of an editing mistake with the VHS release of the story which resulted in several scenes from one episode being re-used in another. Now I think it's kinda harmless fun, but still not my fave of the Pertwee Era (of which there are several). Frontier in Space actually is very repetitive, I mean, how many different ways can two people be imprisoned in 6 25 minute episodes?? Vera Fusek (the President) was the real unsung hero of this story, IMO. Her performance outshines the rest of the (frankly lackluster) guest cast!
  7. I don't think this is so wacky at all. I personally have always maintained that his having these sorts of relations is tantamount to pedophilia. I suppose you could say that all this lonely god business has gotten to him, but it's just kind of ick to me, no matter how you slice it. IMO this whole "shipper" slant to DW reduces the show to the level of a soap opera. While I'm listing the not wacky stuff I've read so far, I have to include 2 of Mike's theories. While I don't think that the War Chief is the Master, Mike is not the 1st person to have proposed it. I think someone kicked this around on 1 of the msg boards when the topic was The War Games. I don't see any evidence, but I think it's a harmless enough theory. The woman at the End of Time IS Susan, IMO, until I hear differently! I was 50/50 between it being Susan or Romana, but I'm hoping for Susan.
  8. FIERCE! Thanks a million! I really didn't realize how much I was loving it til I thought it was gone!!
  9. Does anyone know when this awesome 'cast will be back? I'm seriously starting to go through
  10. I love the DW DVDs for the extras & these particular Stripped for Actions are AWESOME, however I'm not sure I really get the Matrix type extras on both disks. Oh well, can't win them all I s'pose.
  11. Don't forget that old devil, the cell phone. I only got mine relatively recently ('06) but I have a friend who is 21 whose had one for like 9 years. 100% agree about the DVR!
  12. My collection has recently been updated and I'm the proud owner of the Dalek War Box Set, Keys of Marinus & the Black Guardian Trilogy. Now if only my fairy godmother would grant me The War Games...
  13. I don't get the hate for Caprica! I find it intriguing, well-written & fascinating! Their universe is like ours but different in the same way that BSG's was but even moreso. None of the characters are simple or easy to understand, they are all complex, captivating people who can't be summed up in a few words. I find Caprica to be a beautifully constructed breath of fresh air on a channel whose airtime is overcrowded with fake ghost hunters & pro wrestling.
  14. It's a shame that he had to go out like this. Here I was, hoping for some kind of turnaround...
  15. Damn. Maybe I should be paying better attention! Thanks for lettin me know & @ Mike: I hope things get better for you soon!
