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)

Needs to be put on DVD.
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

I remember the series pretty well, and made a point of watching Katy's ep at the time.

He was prolific in the seventies and work dried up for him in the eighties and nineties, certainly on TV, til he got a gig with Emmerdale.
