    I wondered how those books and magical Gallifreyan bottle encyclopedias, stayed on the Tardis shelves all the time – I mean, don’t we see the cast falling all over over the place in the console room…? Maybe they’re magnetized…?

    I wasn’t quite as annoyed by the reset button solution in this story as I was in, say “Last of the Time Lords” where the Doctor used the Force and went all sparkly. I think sometimes this idea of Doctor Who as tele-fantasy can go too far toward the fantasy and loose a bit of its integrity that way.

    I love Diana Rigg. I got into The Avengers heavily in my teens and her ear is definitely the best of the series. I also remember her being the host of the Mystery! anthology series on PBS for a number of years, taking over from Vincent Price.

    I think the McCoy stories with Ace are definitely good classics to show to a nuWho fan, because you definitely have the drama there more than you did in the past as they were developing Ace’s backstory and character more heavily than they had any other companion. And newer fans would also be used to the idea of a darker side to the Doctor and the fact that death follows him constantly. In that respect, I think “The Curse of Fenric” would probably be a great classic story to show someone new to the series.

    I’ll probably get “Inferno” Special Edition. I’ve replaced all my old copies with Special Editions so far, no reason to stop now. :P

    If I had a recommendation, it would be the Big Finish audio “The Elite”, part of the Lost Stories range and the first of three plays featuring the Fifth Doctor, Nyssa and Tegan. Its a really good story, really well played out, with an interesting twist at its core that I won’t give away.


  3. I too was imensly disappointed that there was not even a mention of the boot cupboard room. But other than that the episode was pretty good.
