Logopolis

Spoilers Now we come onto the Fourth Doctor’s very last adventure. Logopolis was penned by script editor Christopher H. Bidmead. It is very complicated a lot of the time, since Chris was also a writer for the New Scientist magazine. The actual story begins with an actual police box that resembles the Tardis. A policemanContinue reading “Logopolis”

Hexagora

Spoilers Here we have yet another lost story. I must admit to never having heard of Peter Ling, Hazel Adair or even Paul Finch before I listened to Hexagora. It’s plot also changed quite a bit during redevelopment. Peter Ling originally wrote The Mind Robber for Season 6. We start off with an Australian newsContinue reading “Hexagora”

The Keeper of Traken

Spoilers The Keeper of Traken is for me the best story of Season 18. There are two reasons for this. The main reason is that it is very well written by Johnny Byrne, and the sets used look absolutely stunning. The other reason, which I will admit is a very minor one, is that thisContinue reading “The Keeper of Traken”

Vengeance on Varos

Spoilers This story is considered to be one of the most controversial ones in Doctor Who history, mostly because of the violence. This wasn’t so much a problem for me, but I still found the story problematic in a way, which I come onto later in this review. The script was written by Philip MartinContinue reading “Vengeance on Varos”

Warriors’ Gate

Spoilers Now we come to the last story in the E-Space trilogy. That being said though, Big Finish have since made stories set in E-Space for the Fourth Doctor, Romana, K9 and Adric. Furthermore, this isn’t the last time the Doctor will end up in E-Space. Warrior’s Gate is a story that has a bitContinue reading “Warriors’ Gate”

Planet of the Spiders

Spoilers Now we come onto the last ever story of the Third Doctor era. Jon Pertwee’s interest in the show had been wading for a while now. One of the main factors in this had been the death of Roger Delgado. This story was the replacement for a story known as The Final Game inContinue reading “Planet of the Spiders”

Attack of the Cybermen

Spoilers Colin Baker’s first full season as the Doctor brought about a change in the episode format and schedule. The show returned to Saturdays once a week, and all of them ran to 45 minutes. This is reminiscent of when the show came back in 2005. The story itself begins with two workers named BillContinue reading “Attack of the Cybermen”

State of Decay

Spoilers The second E-Space tv story sees our main characters dealing with vampires. I have reviewed a Doctor Who vampire story already in the form of the novel Goth Opera, which was made 14 years after State of Decay. The main setting is on a planet which features a medieval village, overlooked by a tower.Continue reading “State of Decay”
