Scarf Saga 3 – “The Visitation” plus Math is Fun!

I really enjoyed The Visitation. I was trying to put my finger on why I liked it so much, because the plot was nothing special. I think I liked it because it had a very familiar feel to it, with many standard Doctor Who scenarios such as: Trying to get a companion home on time…

Scarf Saga Part 2

Erin’s notes on Four to Doomsday, Kinda, and scarf colors. In Four to Doomsday, the gang lands on a spaceship belonging to some highly-evolved aliens. The aliens have visited Earth several times and taken humans from various cultures and time periods. Now they are headed back to Earth with a deadly poison that could kill…

Classic Who and Scarf Knitting!

Hello! This is Erin, who you haven’t heard from for a while. After a bit of a (long) break, I’m hoping to start posting regularly again. I have a couple of new projects to write about! Kat and I are going to Chicago TARDIS in November and the guests include Peter Davison, Colin Baker, and…

UNIT: Assembled – Part II: Tidal Wave

Oh, Josephine Grant Jones how I’ve missed you! Some things never change and we should all count ourselves lucky to know that Jo is one of those things. Katy Manning is, as always, utterly delightful. And teaming her up with Ingrid Oliver on a daring adventure? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.  And then, to…

UNIT: Assembled – Part I: A Call to Arms

Take notes, people, because this is how you marry two generations of UNIT together properly. And I know it’s been done before–and done well–but there’s something about this that just feels so right. Getting John Levene and Richard Franklin to team up with Gemma Redgrave and Ingrid Oliver is–quite simply–sublime. This is in no small…

Of course they’re Cybermen. Any fool can see that.

I’ve been working VERY HARD to stay away from Doctor Who spoilers as much as possible. I’ve abandoned my Tumblr, I’ve unfollowed all the Doctor Who things on Pinterest, and I’ve checked into Twitter maybe a handful of times in the last five months or so. I’ve been suffering a fair amount of Doctor Who…

Day 30: Favorite Doctor (Classic Edition)

Day 30, at last! Well, I say “day” but I realize that this post is ridiculously late. I didn’t put a featured image on today’s post because I wanted to leave you in suspense. I know you’re all probably 100% sure I’m going to say that my favorite Doctor is Jon Pertwee.

Day 29: Favorite Story (Classic Edition)

I feel like today is another one of those days where my answer could easily depend on my mood, so I had to set myself some criteria. The best way I could think to do it was to narrow the entire list down to just the stories I would watch for, say, comfort viewing. I’m…

Day 28: Favorite Recurring Character (Classic Edition)

We’ve talked before about companions that are grossly underappreciated, right? Of course we have. It’s something I tend to witter on about quite a bit. But there are other characters who sort of walk that line between being a companion and not being a companion. It’s more common in New Who than in the Classic…

Day 27: Favorite Special (Classic Edition)

A while back, I spent some time wittering on about my love for The Three Doctors. It is my first memory of ever seeing Doctor Who, and as such will always be closest to my heart. And it’s just so good. Of all the Classic Who specials (few though there are), it is unquestionably the…

Day 26: Favorite Planet (Classic Edition)

My knee-jerk instinct on this was to say Gallifrey or Skaro, but that felt like cheating. Those are the obvious ones. I also considered Telos, but rejected it for the same reasons. There are so many to choose from, it was difficult to narrow down a selection. But one name always kept popping back into…
