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…

Today is one of those days. In thinking…

Day 23: The Sassiest Character (Classic Edition)

This category was, I admit, a bit tougher than I thought. There’s sort of a surprising amount of sass throughout the history of the show–with some eras having a bit more than others. However, I think it it is only right and proper to correctly acknowledge that the real Queen of Sass is none other than The…

Day 22: The Most Underrated Story (Classic Edition)

Season 7 is generally credited as one of the most perfect seasons in Doctor Who history. Jon Pertwee’s inaugural run was astonishing in that it gave us FOUR consecutive brilliant stories. Admittedly, Spearhead From Space may have set us up for future disappointment in the way it was shot.* But the story quality didn’t diminish right away,…
