Re: THE TARDIS CONSOLE ROOM: Your Top 10 Choices

All they needed to do for Nu Who was take the classic style console room and just make it bigger, regular in shape and more solid-looking. There are several key elements the console room should have: The hexagonal central console, covered in levers, buttons and dials. Roundelled walls. Thick roundel...

Re: Rate "Genesis of the Daleks"

Genesis is a fine story raised up to greater heights by Michael Wisher's mesmerising turn as Davros ably supported by Peter Miles as the odious Nyder. It's let down by the 'giant clam' failed Dalek experiment and Sarah's ridiculous near fall into it's clutches, and the the usual jarring difference b...

Re: Rate "The Talons of Weng-Chiang"

Taking everything into account (script, performances, production values for their day, direction, costumes, atmosphere, humour etc.) Talons is probably the best all-round Doctor Who story ever made.

Re: Seventh Doctor's Outfit

One of JNT's great failings was his introduction of 'costumes' for the Doctor and, to begin with, the companions too. Prior to his tenure each Doctor always wore a particular style of clothes but there were always variations, sometimes obvious, sometimes subtle, but always variations. Unfortunately ...

Re: MARY WHITEHOUSE: Was She Sometimes Right?

The irony of course is that classic (aka real) Doctor Who was so tame compared with Nu Who nevermind what else has happened to the 'televisual' world. Can you imagine Mrs Whitehouse's horror at the oral sex inference in the risible Love and Monsters for example? And would she have been wrong to rais...

Re: GODS, CORRUPT POLITICIANS OR THAT NEW WHO LOT: Which Version of the Time Lords Do You Prefer?

The 'large collars' are a great desgin... but they were only supposed to be part of 'rarely worn ceremonial robes'. The mistake was their over-use. Less is definitely more when it comes to Gallifrey and the Time Lords. As the years have gone by they've become more and more ridiculous. They should ha...

Zoe's 'fight' with The Karkus. Let's just have the tiny lass enthusiastically execute the same throw over and over again until the big bloke gives up!

And who thought giving a comic book superhero a name that sounds like the remains of a dead animial was a good idea?

Re: THE RANI: Best Forgotten?

The Rani just added to the ever-expanding pantheon of rogue Time Lords, which rather made them going after the Doctor rather OTT (although no doubt that will now be explained by this 'Timeless Child' nonense).

Re: Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979)

If I recall correctly one version of the pilot, perhaps the theatrical release, featured some innuendo from Buck including a reference to "Wilma's back passage".

I walked past a bewildered looking Bill Bailey on the Tube not so long back. I was also sat in a room with Sylvester McCoy recently; he looked rather 'Doctorish' with a hat on.
