I don't know guys... what do you think would be best for the poll of each story?

Episode least wanted - or episode most wanted?

Am a bit unsure. :?
For future stories I would suggest the episode that people most want back.

Re: WEEKLY (RE)WATCH OF THE MISSING 97: "The Space Pirates" (Episode 5)

I just gave the poll for the rewatches a shake up - admittedly a bit late in the day for this first story - as the previous poll was really just a dupicate of the one here.... Rate "The Space Pirates" https://www.planetmondas.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=7807 Now we are asked which episode we wou...

DOCTOR: Jamie, pass me that marble will you? JAMIE: This one? DOCTOR: The green one. Thank you very much. It's one of my favourites. __________________ The worst episode yet and a very noisy one.

Zoe would also have seen candles in The Mind Robber episode 3.

Re: CLASSIC VS. CLASSIC: Which was the best David Whitaker script of them all?

I think we were, indeed, blessed with writing talent back then on the show, DSJR - and Whitaker was definitely one of the best. I am not 100% sure - and can anyone confirm - but believe he also wrote the entire contents of the very first annual (including an article on "Who is the Doctor?" -- and s...

Re: WEEKLY (RE)WATCH OF THE MISSING 97: "The Space Pirates" (Episode 4)

ZOE: What are you carrying drawing pins for? DOCTOR: I like drawing pins. Ouch. Normally. The Doctor has little to do, Jamie and Zoe even less so. Normally Jamie and / or Zoe would be separated from the Doctor and have a sub plot of their own but not in this story so far. The episode benefits from h...

Re: When The Doctor Was a Human Who Invented the TARDIS

Yes you're right he says human like you and me or something like that... Possibly being rhetorical since he's making a point, but anyway. I don't recall him saying he invented the TARDIS though, can you give a pointer to when they was in the chase? As someone who's argued a few times here that time...

I dunno, always thought Robot was kinda similar to or drew inspiration from King Kong . Likewise with Brain of Morbius and Frankenstein , Pyramids of Mars and The Mummy , Seeds of Doom and The Day of the Triffids , The Invisible Enemy and Fantastic Journey . There's probably more, but they're allud...
