Androzani – Botany of the Class?

Jo Grant assisted the Doctor without having attained her science GCE. Sarah Jane Smith was a young journalist pup with little scientific knowledge while Leela was a savage; they all got by. The Romanas were arguably smarter than the Doctor, yet their reaction to the horror’s of space was to spend the best part of…

The Shape of the Caves…

We’ve talked about Robert Holmes a lot in the past in these articles, and no doubt will again in the future.

Invasion? What Invasion?

It’s Christmas day. 2:00pm (that’s 7:00pm in England). I go outside and look to the sky… nothing, so far no Invasion. Hmmm… how odd the BBC site said there would be. Ah well, maybe later. I check back in a half hour, still nothing. Maybe they were wrong? The fact is, for me there will…
