I can't say I'm outraged by the idea that DW shares a universe with Quatermass. (Just seems a bit odd that they never met during the early UNIT years).

And as to affairs in Liamland, I believe it's in fact semi-canon that DW and Blake's 7 share a universe, as Kaldor City (from Robots of Death) apparently turns up in some B7 audios or books or similar.
It's a character from B7 (psycho-strategist Carnell) who appears in the Kaldor City audios, a direct Who spin-off. But basically, yes. Terry Nation also considered Who and B7 to exist in the same universe; originally, the aliens who invaded Federation space at the end of B7's second series were to have been the Daleks, but the idea was vetoed.


That would be problematic. In Doctor Who throughout Earth's futurehistory teleports are a common technology. In Blake's 7 they are a concept never fully realised until the Altas develop one. The Dalek idea was vetoed, probably to keep the two shows separate.
B7 is set in the far future after society has collapsed and effectively been restarted. I don't think the loss of teleport technology is a stretch of the imagination too far, really. Earths future history as depicted in Who appears to go in cycles of rise & fall, if you look at the whole picture.


The specific dates won't fit. Blake's 7 is set somewhere around 1000 years forward. It needs to be a lot later to find a niche.

Why did the Doctor say he'd met Arthur Dent?


Be fair- Tom's Doctor read Oolon Colluphid in the Douglas Adams scripted stuff..

Yeah ,but the whole Dalek story has depth ,especially Genesis of the Daleks (Skaro , Thals and the beginning of the Daleks and all that) .Im just saying they just rewrote the Cybermen ,and made them so basic .

What was wrong with the original Cybermen ?

Thev'e made the Cyberman history seem a little untidy now .


Just one thing would have redeemed this- as Mickey and that other bloke drive off into the sunset, Mickey could say something like "Now let's go and save the Earth", and the other guy could respond "Earth? What do you mean- this is Mondas."

Er.... I just found out the cybermen from whatever the fuck it was called, you know, the ones with the 'delete' catchphrase... they're from an alternative universe, which was news to me.

Anyone got any clues why the story necessitated use of the alternative universe card? Guess I must have passed out during that one. Too much excitement. It was so believable with such plausible dialogue I must have thought it was a documentary and shat myself unconscious. Or summink.

Answers of 'because they were shit' aren't really what I'm looking for seeing as that applies to the rest of it too.

EDIT: Oops - just bothered to read the previous page and now have answer.
