The Five Doctors [Classic Doctor Who]

Doctor Who has long been my favorite show, but until recently rewatchings of old episodes have been few and far between.  This has changed in the last couple of years as I have been using birthday and Christmas money to buy some of the old episodes, usually enjoying them with one or two of my nerdier daughters. This year, though, my wife and I bought a year of Britbox for each other as a gift, which gives me access to nearly all of classic Who.

Doctor Who, etc: Early Adventures, Dan Dare, Jago & Litefoot, Companion adventures–a Big Finish sampler

In the wake of the whole COVID-19 pandemic, Big Finish–most famous for their original licensed Doctor Who audios–began to release a variety of projects for free on a weekly basis.  Some of these are “proper” Doctor Who adventures, some are licensed from other sources, and others are completely original.  I have been taking advantage of these, as I’ve written about here and here and here. This time around we’re looking at a bit of a miscellaneous list of projects that got missed on my previous write-ups.

Doctor Who Theory: Fugitive of the Judoon / Remembrance of the Daleks

Recently, I was rewatching Remembrance of the Daleks, a well regarded story from the 25th season of the classic Doctor Who series.  In addition to being a well-directed story with good performances and interesting characters, it attempted to do something that current showrunner Chris Chibnall has been touted as attempting decades later…adding a little mystery into the Doctor’s backstory.  On the whole, I think this was done fairly successfully–certainly far more so then in more recent attempts.
