The Doctors

Sorting out BTP’s shelf of Doctor Who DVDs, which is starting to look really quite impressively geeky now (although I have to admit that he has got me back into it to the extent that half a dozen of them are actually mine, rather than having been bought for him), I thought it was about time I wrote up the collection…

    Look, I’m just impressed I didn’t put “Peter Davidson”, and that I picked the right McGann. Cut a guy some slack, wouldja?

    try ‘the daemons’ – john pertwee.
    it starts in black & white then changes to colour.

    Try The Brain of Morbius with Tom Baker.

    If I remember correctly, you get to see what The Doctor looked like pre-Hartnell incarnation.

    one of ‘The Brain of Morbius’ or ‘The War Machines’ or ‘Trial of A Time Lord’ are likely to be the next purchase….

    What!??? No “Caves of Androzani” ??

    For those of us who had grown up with the Holmes/Hinchcliffe years of Tom Baker in the 1970s it was such a surprising return to form for modern era Doctor Who. I remember I taped the programme onto audio cassette (we didn’t have a video recorder) and listened to it countless times.. I was so gobsmacked that ‘Who could be so good again.

    Plus your lad will get to see another regeneration – surely a big treat.

    The main reason for ‘no caves of Androzani’ is that I am a tight-fisted so and so, and tend to resent paying full price for anything. Besides, with two small children and a Dr Who ‘habit’ to support, I need to watch what I spend sometimes — and while most of the DVDs listed above have been available for £12 or less at some point, I have yet to see The Caves of Androzani anywhere for under £20.

    Although you can now add ‘The Dalek Invasion of Earth’ to the above list…

    PS apologies for you getting trapped in the spam filter: you’d think it ought to know, you represent the ‘anti-spam’ ! (Unless of course, it thinks you are the ‘Hong Kong Phoney’ version…)

    Hong Kong Phoney… darnit… wish I had thought of that. That’s genius.
