Logopolis [Classic Doctor Who]

Doctor Who has long been my favorite show, but in recent years rewatchings of old episodes have been few and far between.  But lately I decided to spend both some of my birthday spending money and my Christmas spending money on some of these adventures, and enjoy them with one or two of my nerdier daughters.

Doctor Who / The Avengers (Tara King-era) Actor Connections

Lately, I’ve been going through some other movies and shows and finding where there are actors or creative talent that they have in common with Doctor Who.

Also recently, I finished going through all the “Emma Peel” episodes of the 1960s TV show The Avengers and blogging about each one (starting here), including noting when its guest cast were also people who made appearances in Doctor Who. I was struck by how much crossover there was.

The Time Meddler: My Fifth Doctor Wish-list

If I was an unscrupulous Time Lord with the ability to travel through the fourth dimension and to try to affect changes that I thought would make things better, there’s probably a bunch of stuff I’d do with my favorite TV series, Doctor Who.  Like many-a-fan (I assume), I’ve thought of these things from time to time, and I now I’m going to list them over a series of posts.

Doctor Who Convention Encounters: Anthony Ainley

As mentioned previously, I attended a Doctor Who convention in Philadelphia back in 1985. Philadelphia is a few hours away from where I grew up but I was able to go thanks to my servant-hearted Dad, who drove me all the way there. One of the celebrities that I got to meet was Anthony Ainley, who played the arch-villain the Master on-and-off starting in the last Tom Baker season in 1981, all the way to the end of the original series in 1989.
