Celebrate Regenerate Out Now!

Celebrate Regenerate, the book made by the fans for the fans, is out now. (And what’s more, it’s free!) The project, celebrating 50 years of Doctor Who by focussing on what’s great about every single serial, began in July 2012 and has since expanded to include specials like A Fix with Sontarans, Time Crash and…

035 The Faceless Ones

There’s a line said by Polly in The Faceless Ones, her and Ben’s last serial, which particularly sticks in the mind: “You don’t think my friends will forget me like that, do you?” It’s a fair concern as the last companion to leave, Dodo, was kicked off stage quite unceremoniously in The War Machines (Polly…

034 The Macra Terror

I was looking forward to seeing The Macra Terror.  And of course, I still do. I’ll only be “seeing” the story in my head because it’s one of Doctor Who‘s lost tales.  So it’s recon time. The Macra Terror starts off with a guy named Medok evading guards in a society that seemed to be…

032 The Underwater Menace

A kidnapped highlander joins the Doctor on an adventure west of Gibraltar and south of the Azores in what little remains of lost Atlantis – just in time to be sacrificed to hungry sharks at the Festival of the Vernal Equinox and to witness the end of the world… Geoffrey Orme’s The Underwater Menace has…

Doctor Who: The Highlanders

031 The Highlanders

Received wisdom has it that The Highlanders is the first story to feature Jamie as a companion and the last “pure” historical until Black Orchid, way in the future (as far as these reviews are concerned) at the start of the Peter Davison era. Neither of these things are particularly true. For a start, Jamie…
