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”

States of Being: Cold is available now

The first episode of a five-part anthology titled States of Being is now available to read. The episodes title is Cold. It features the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa, with a companion named Billy Walker, who is from The Fifth Doctor by Tim Bradley which can be found on Bradley’s Basement Blogs. Here is the linkContinue reading “States of Being: Cold is available now”

The Caves of Androzani

Spoilers Well, now we come onto the penultimate story of Season 21, which is also the final story for the Fifth Doctor. The Caves of Androzani is considered by many people to be one of the best, if not the best Doctor Who story ever made. Even people who aren’t keen on the Fifth DoctorContinue reading “The Caves of Androzani”

Planet of Fire

Spoilers Now we come to the Fifth Doctor’s penultimate adventure on tv. This is also the final regular appearance of Vislor Turlough and Kamelion, as well as being the first appearance of Californian Botany student Peri Brown, whose actress is actually from Guildford 😀 We start off with the Doctor reminiscing with Turlough about theContinue reading “Planet of Fire”

Resurrection of the Daleks

Spoilers This story was penned by script editor Eric Saward who had previously written The Visitation and Earthshock for Season 19 and would go onto write Revelation of the Daleks for Season 22. We return to the cliff-hanger from Frontios where the Tardis is caught in a time corridor. This causes it to end upContinue reading “Resurrection of the Daleks”

Frontios

Spoilers Frontios is quite an unusual Doctor Who story to say the least. For one thing, there were two tragedies in the production side of things. Director Ron Jones initially assigned Barrie Robbins to design the sets. Unfortunately, his mental health was declining and so he was replaced with David Buckingham. Sadly, Dobbins committed suicideContinue reading “Frontios”

The Elite

Spoilers This Fifth Doctor Big Finish audio was originally penned as a tv story, but it never saw the light of day in that medium. It was written by Barbara Clegg, who managed to get Enlightenment produced for Season 20, unlike The Elite. She also submitted Point of Entry featuring the Sixth Doctor and Peri,Continue reading “The Elite”

The Awakening

Spoilers The second story of Season 21 has the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough travelling to the English village of Little Hodcombe to visit Tegan’s grandfather Andrew Verney. They get there, but everything seems wrong. The locals are re-enacting war games from 1643, but they are actually more than just re-enactments, meaning that the past isContinue reading “The Awakening”

Warriors of the Deep

Spoilers Season 21 of Doctor Who kicks off with a base under siege. We also have the return of both the Silurians and the Sea Devils, who are seen on-screen together for the first time. Warriors of the Deep is for me a lacklustre Doctor Who story. It was penned by Johnny Byrne who previouslyContinue reading “Warriors of the Deep”
