Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

We couldn't agree a time and everybody is in different countries. So we just watch over the weekend and comment whenever we have watched it. It's all a bit as hoc. We're easy going like that.

Basically, trying to get Mondasians to follow rules or keep to a schedule is like trying to herd cats, so we're settling for everyone watching the same story around the same weekend. We take our victories where we can, small and feeble though they may be. :)

Ah, at last something I've never seen before (Survival).

TBH, it's not one I ever want to see again. Anthony Ainley is a terrible actor, Hale and Pace, I didn't like McCoy's incarnation at all (there's only four of his stories I can stomach), and even at 3 episodes it drags... Hale and Pace.

I’m not much of a fan either, so I’ll be skipping this one.

Perhaps if you told us which ones you hadn't watched it might help.

Although it looks like you will be the only one watching this :lol:

I don't own it anyway, so couldn't watch it even if I wanted too. Never bought the vhs or the doovde and my off-airs from original transmission went in a skip a good decade back.

OK, I might find this an interesting exercise myself, so here goes.

I watched everything from "Planet of Giants" to somewhere around "The Pirate Planet", at which point I had other things on my plate (university, nervous breakdown, having to share a TV with the occupants of a hall of residence - this was the mid to late 70s! - punk rock, etc) and thereafter my viewing became somewhat occasional.

Having said which, I've seen...well, PROBABLY everything up to the Armageddon Factor, although I'd have to rewatch that season to make sure.

After Armageddon, I've seen the following:

Destiny
City of Death
Meglos
Full Circle
State of Decay
First episode of Traken (I got bored and never watched the rest)
Black Orchid (for the first time during our "rewatch" the other week)
Earthshock
Enlightenment
Resurrection
Androzani
Attack of the Cybermen
Two Docs
Revelation
Trial, in its entirety
Delta
Remembrance
Ghost light
...the TVM, and everything since.

Have I missed anything worthwhile?

You haven't seen the Five Doctors?

Vengeance on Varos, Curse of Fenric, and the Five Doctors are good in my opinion. Seems like you have probably seen most of the best stuff from the the list you gave.

The Five Doctors is pretty straightforward plotwise, so it isn't as interesting without a nostalgic element, I dunno.

Apart from that, there are plenty of curate's eggs, like Horns of Nimon and Nightmare of Eden. or creature from the pit.
