Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

If I had the matte skill and the time to do so, I'd love to see if it'd be possible to colour correct Sixie's outfit along the lines of this: https://www.drwho.de/forum/index.php/Attachment/5451-sixth-doctor-black-coat-jpg/ It'd most likely be an improbable nightmare to do, not even for a single epi...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

Also, in terms of rating complete seasons/series, I've shifted the new series' Christmas specials to the end of series rather than beginning them. Storywise RTD is clearly using them to wrap up the preceding season, so it makes no sense to have them start the next one, especially when each new arc i...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

Oh yeah, I probably should share that too, my 0-5 scale on overall serial quality: 5: ESSENTIAL — A story you don’t want to miss AND / OR is important to understanding the character of The Doctor. 4: FANTASTIC — Just a really good story in context, message, or overall. Entertaining Every Time! 3: CO...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

That's probably why Creature From The Pit has that problem, the makeup, costumes, and set design all feel right. The villain Lady Adrasta is played very nicely by Myra Frances, an intense performance mixed with memorable makeup. Adams' script editing is all over it. It's such a shame the one thing t...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

I hear you, I still despise Delta but sometimes I think I do get a little too harsh on certain serials, I tried during the entire marathon to approach each serial as if I'd never seen it before but that's an uphill battle, it's not always easy, I thought when I got to The Horns Of Nimon it'd be a so...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

To be little more positive, I'll just add a small list of ten serials that as far as I'm concerned DEFINE a "competent Doctor Who": The Masque Of Mandragora, Terror Of The Zygons, The Ark In Space, The Time Warrior, Carnival Of Monsters, The War Games, The Enemy Of The World, The Faceless Ones, The ...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

As for Seventh Doctor TV stories, "The Greatest Show In The Galaxy" and "The Curse Of Fenric" are probably the closest things to serials I'd put on a rewatch list "Battlefield" and "Ghost Light" are confusing fluff, though Battlefield has the always appreciated Nick Courtney, so it gets a higher gra...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

In television terms, I'll be a steadfast defender of the Trial serial/season even with all it's flaws. It's one of those cases where it's the best of a sour bunch, that while also sour in places, it isn't as much. Colin and Sylvester are too likable as people for me to dismiss their original time as...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

TLDR: Season 21 + onwards ramble Oo, also, since I brought up the Sixth Doctor, and be warned this is a long one: I have to say something about his infamous premiere story, but it requires build-up. When I was doing my in-broadcast-order marathon that took a year and a half, I was surprised to lear...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

Oo! Yes, Saward's Bloodlust, that was super prevalent, putting that in! I can't believe I didn't mention that; Thanks, thanks, thanks! His cravings are a major part of the "melodrama" that festers in a lot of 80's Who: In the documentary for Attack Of The Cybermen, when he's describing his intention...
