Same here, my wife pre-ordered a load of this years classic DVD's as a Christmas present for me (all the ones that had been announced at that point - I still have the Kamelion collection and Time and the Rani to come, I think).

Mine's "in the post," apparently.

More "abandoned like Ariadne."

Edit: mine(otaur) has just arrived.

During lunch, I watched the "Between Now...and Now!" documentary on Time Monster DVD.

Comedy media scientist Jim Al Khalili is a right hoot, aimicably spouting nuggets of pure banality. I love his explanation using relativity theory as to how Bessie's Super Drive "might one day be possible." He claims current theories show that time "did not exist before the creation of the universe." I can't believe contemporary physics has only just caught up with Augustine Laughing He's also completely confused about Aristotle on time: kaĆ­ros assumes importance as a measurement of time in early Christianity, while Aristotle uses the term only negatively in the Metaphysics to describe that which is "beyond measure." Still, at least he has a historical understanding of science unlike other comedy media scientists such as R****** D******. Even dear old Barry Letts gets Democritus wrong. Still, it's all good fun.

What with listening to a bit of Who on Earth is Tom Baker recently, i'm sure you'll enjoy the studio footage from Underworld.

I watched the Horns of Nimon DVD last night. I hadn't seen this in about 20 years. Although I don't think it deserves its reputation as an outright turkey, it is, nevertheless, very silly in a sub-Python manner. This is all right if you're drinking a bottle of cheap wine, as I was. If one wallows in Graham Crowden's ludic performance and the sheer ridiculousness of it all, it's good fun. Stupid and not a particularly good example of Doctor Who, then. In this, it shares much with the recent version of the show. However, what marks the difference to New Who is that it never strays into the charmless patronising of its audience associated with the last five years.

The Blue Peter documentary is a whimsical and nostalgic touch with contributions from Biddy Baxtor and Janet Ellis among others. Even Davies makes some nice points. I'm not sure about Peter Purves's claim that Doctor Who is more popular now than it was when he was in the show. Clayton Hickman's bitchy remarks about the design a monster competitions are unnecessary. They were children, Clay. And in any case, Acwaman is better than any amount of aminal kwackers and men in rubber suits seen recently.

Aside from all this, what really stands out for me is Romana's magnificent hoof (or should that be whoof?), which is proudly on display throughout - although it is particulaly prominent at around 12 minutes into episode 1 and at the cliffhanger to episode 2. It really does seem to be prestigious. One wonders just how much genetic material it could contain. I'm sure Ms Ward now regrets wearing such tight and ill-fitting jodhpurs.

Agreed. Although i'd expect nothing less from Dickman. I hate the cunt.

I wasn't gonna bother watching this one, but you've convinced me. Laughing

I'm 10 minutes in to the commentary for The Horns of Nimon and the following points need to be made:

i) after 3 minutes Mrs Dicky Dimkins makes a "barbed" remark about Tom; this beats her previous record on the Leisure Hive DVD - let it go woman.

ii) Graham Crowden is over-the-top in real life.

iii) After 6 minutes Frau Dimplings mentions how much she likes her costume - she doesn't appear to be aware (or care) that it's half way up her twat.

Edit:

Ten minutes in to episode 2 and Ward feels the need to refer to the actor who plays Adric (who isn't even in this serial) as "Matthew Waterlogged". There then follows a constant stream of bitchy remarks about Tom and a few through-gritted-teeth half-arsed semi-compliments after being prompted by Crowden and Ellis. The word "unprofessional" comes to mind. Still, I like the story she tells about going home with Tom on the Tube and without telling Ward, he suddenly alights at a station before theirs. I can't imagine why dear. And your jodhpurs are still up your minge.
