Doctor Who (Jon Pertwee) – The Ambassadors of Death

  Another seven part adventure awaits the Doctor (Pertwee) in this story written by David Whitaker that aired from 21 March to 2 May, 1970. We get a look at the TARDIS control room as the Doctor and Liz (Caroline John) are working on it… He’s changed the desktop theme, and I don’t like it….

Doctor Who (Patrick Troughton) – The Wheel in Space

  Season 5 of Doctor Who came to an end with this six part story that was written by David Whitaker, and aired from 27 April to June 1, 1968. It saw the introduction of a new companion, joining the Doctor (Troughton) and Jamie (Frazer Hines) in the TARDIS, and the return of an old…

Doctor Who (Patrick Troughton) – The Enemy of the World

  And there we have it. The first Troughton story I didn’t like. The Enemy of the World is a six-part story that was written by David Whitaker and ran from 23 December, 1967 to 27 January, 1968. Set on Earth in the far distant year of 2018, the only thing that made this story…

Doctor Who (Patrick Troughton) – The Evil of the Daleks

  The Daleks return in this epic 7 part story that closes out the fourth season of Doctor Who. The Doctor (Patrick Troughton) and Jamie (Frazer Hines) pick up right where the last story ended off, but it seems someone has knicked the TARDIS. Someone, or something with a sinister plan. This one was written…

Ben (Michael Craze) and Polly (Anneke Wills) are a little dubious if this new person is actually the Doctor.¬†He looks and…

Doctor Who (William Hartnell) – The Crusade

  The TARDIS travels back to the Crusades, and meets up with King Richard the Lion Heart himself, played by a very familiar face to genre fans… Julian Glover, who played in The Empire Strikes Back, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Game of Thrones, and menaced James Bond in For Your Eyes Only. This…

Doctor Who (William Hartnell) – The Rescue

  The third story of the second season is a two-parter penned by David Whitaker and airing on the 2 and 9 of January 1965. The Doctor (Hartnell) is napping, and I think dealing with his depression of leaving Susan (Carole Ann Ford) behind in the previous story, when the TARADIS¬†materializes on Dido (the planet…

Doctor Who (William Hartnell) – The Edge of Destruction

  The third story in the first season of Doctor Who, is a short one, it’s a two-parter, and is also a bottle show, it all takes place on the standing sets of the TARDIS, nothing new had to be built. This allowed the show to save money. The first part, The Edge of Destruction…
