Is the Ice Warrior using a Porta-Potty?

You know that's only about a quarter of the series? If you multiply the number of rusks in a box by the decreasing probability of getting a new card each time, you'll realise that getting a full set would mean eating enough roughage to produce a turd that would encircle Nottingham.

So that's how Davies produced new Who.

Davros certainly is.

Well, he is sitting in his wheelchair/commode combo.

It's time for 1974! Cool

New title sequence!



I remember thinking at the time that this was super cool! And it's still my fave title sequence. Cool

I instantly liked Sarah Jane. I was never that much of a fan of Jo. It wasn't until a few years later that i was old enough to appreciate her flashing her knickers. Laughing

I turned 11yrs old during S11, and i loved all the stories, but the ones that really stood out were:

Death to the Daleks



I thought the silver Daleks were ace! I was impressed with the way they started using bullets after their technology failed. Oh hang on, that should be 'tech-narr-logy'. Very Happy

Meanwhile, Planet of the Spiders remains my favourite Pertwee story of all. I absolutely adored this story, although i was gutted when i found out that Jon was leaving, and actually felt a bit sad when the regeneration scene happened. Sad Embarassed















But it wasn't quite goodbye to Jon yet, because that christmas:



Cool

Coming soon, 1975! Very Happy

One thing that always puzzled me about the Pertwee-Baker regeneration was that the Doctor's frilled shirt regenerated too!

I hadn't noticed that. Does Tom wake up wearing a different shirt?

Same shirt (or at least, the same colour shirt), but the frills disappeared.

Ah! Shows how observant i'm not. Laughing

Just looking at those spiders again. I think they look great.
I hate to think what they were like before they were toned down.

it's 1992 (I think) and the repeat of Genesis is my first contact with DW, but the madness has yet to fully take hold



in the early to mid 90s, every now and then channel 4 would do a sci fi weekend, which invariably included screenings of the 2 aaru movies & the blob. The thing that tipped me over into geekdom was a scratchy copy of invasion earth



The picture was crackly and there was no sound until the bit where Cushing was nearly robotised. Nonetheless I obsessively watched & rewatched it.

We moved from london to the southwest, suddenly I was in an isolated village with one shop. That one shop had 5 things of interest to me amongst its stock









bizarrely, this tiny shop had all of these things, but it didn't have a chiller cab or sell newspapers! the books were 20p each, cybermen was either 3.50 or 4 pounds, I had to save up my lunch money to get it. There was also a k9, and he wasn't green.

When I read the krotons, i visualised the doctor as cushing & Jamie as a fat bloke with a massive ginger beard

The thing older & younger fans than I may not appreciate is just how unattainable and esoteric doctor who felt during the wilderness years. By the mid 90s its presence on shelves & on television was starting to dry up, which just made it even more spooky & mysterious.

A local bootsale became a regular source of target novels, and i soon learned that targets infested charity shops. I would rent hardback targets such as androzani & the underwater menace, and hold onto them for months and months

Underwater menace had a really nice, spooky cover


Aside from the fuzzy recollection of genesis, I still hadn't actually watched an episode of the classic series at this point, until my dad got me this for my 8th or 9th birthday



Needless to say, it blew me away! I wasn't spoiled rotten as a kid, so the VHS tended to arrive around birthdays and xmas, ie slowly.

So via a colleague of my mum's who had sky, this became my source

vortex was a slot on UK gold that showed blake's 7 and a DW omnibus every sunday morning.

My first non target DW book

I was 10, it was deeply confusing. So Dodo got the clap from a robot? I was also pretty shocked at how violent it was.

I placed an order with my newsagent for DWM, my first issue was 236

in the pre-internet age, I had no idea the TVM was on the way. Mind. Blown.

The hype machine whirred into life, sending me into fanboy overload. Stuff like this starting appearing in shops



Also a mcgann comic strip appeared in the radio times, which my parents wouldn't buy, so I went on a mission to the paper recyc bins by Budgens every week Laughing


Longleat became my mecca, relatively close to where i lived & one of the only places that sold Dapol toys

words cannot describe how intensely exciting visiting that place was

Interesting point. It's hard to imagine someone getting into Who when it wasn't even on tv.

I became a fan around 2001 when my mam brought home a couple of videos from a shopping trip to Ashton and said "I think you might like these", they were The Daleks and The Ambassadors of Death. I was instantly hooked and the rest, as they say, is history.

An amusing little side-story is that I visited almost every video shop in North Manchester over the next 12 months asking for Marco Polo and The Macra Terror, because at that time I didn't know those episodes were missing! It was only a couple of years later when we got the internet that I realised what a fool I must have seemed.

Nice start. Did the mix of b/w and colour on Ambassadors confuse you? Very Happy
The Daleks was the first Hartnell story i ever saw. But more on that later. Wink

That image of the Radio Times McGann series really makes me yern all the more for the TV series which never was, the direct continuation to the Classic Series.

Half-human or not, those Radio Times stories convinced me that the yanks couldn't have fucked it up any more than Fathead and Muppet have.

I read the info page on the inside of the sleeve that explained why some parts are in colour and others in black & white before watching it.

I'm not a massive fan of TVM, (although i liked McGann himself) but i tend to agree.
The half-human thing was such a massive cliché, but at least he still behaved like the Doctor.
