Time for a jelly baby and a fine malt scotch at the Cafe Candide:

Shelved

"Shaun Ley recounts how the political circumstances of the late 1970s resulted in three of the most popular TV series' of the time - Dr Who, Secret Army and The Professionals - each having at least one episode scrapped after filming. Interviewees include the then Dr Who, Tom Baker."

It's a shame they didn't scrap the Klansman episode of The Professionals because Bodie acted completely out of character, and Shada because it was Adams at his self-indulgent worst... but if they were gonna do that there'd be no NuWho, would there? Wink

Bet the untransmitted finale of Secret Army was better than the plodding Kessler, though. Any classic Who fans who haven't seen Secret Army really should check it out. Great acting, proper plotting, stiff upper lips in the face of life and death situations and not a fart gag in sight.

What's the betting the DW segment will be contaminated with NW references?

No bet.

Itll be full of comparisons of Who and NuWho, how the effects were crap and it was just campy childish nonsense.
