002 The Daleks

The Daleks.  Something almost as old as Doctor Who itself.  As Doctor Who is approaching its 50th anniversary, so are the Daleks themselves.  They’ve appeared with every incarnation of the Doctor in all these years (although the McGann one is a bit spurious).  They’ve been loved, mocked, made fun of, remounted, turned into color coded…

001 An Unearthly Child/100,000 BC

So, back to the beginning. Remarkably, after 7 years of Kasterborous, this is the first time that anyone has reviewed the very first episode, the one that started it all off back on November 23rd 1963, and the three following episodes that comprise 100,000 BC.

The Sensorites – Out Now!

The Sensorites – the 1964 William Hartnell serial – is ripe for rediscovery and who better to take you on that road to reconciliation with the Sense-Sphere than 2|entertain? A thought-provoking attempt at creating Doctor Who’s first truly peaceful, albeit misguided, alien race in a multifaceted mystery? Or slower than coastal erosion storytelling that ludicrously…
