Doctor Who – 1971 – All the Years

Doctor Who – All The Years is a quick examination of what was happening in the world of Doctor Who over all its years of existence. I’m not attempting to create a thorough history–just brief look back at the real-life timeline of my favorite TV show. Go back to the beginning and read about 1963 here.

The Green Death [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 recently I decided to spend some of my 50th birthday spending money on some of these adventures, and enjoy them with one or two of my nerdier daughters.

Doctor Who: Short Trips – Volume IV [Big Finish]

Thanks to the wild world of inexpensive deals on a website called Humble Bundle, I’ve added all sorts of odd offerings from Big Finish Productions to my collection. These guys have been making original Doctor Who audio material since 1999. Most notably that’s been full-cast audio dramas featuring actors and characters from the TV series, but it has also expanded into all sorts of ancillary material.

One of these lines is Short Trips, which is a collection of short stories set in the Doctor Who universe. One of my purchases included four of these collections.

Doctor Who: The Legacy of Time [Big Finish]

It was July 1999 when Big Finish released Sirens of Time, their first officially-licensed Doctor Who audio production.  Doctor #’s 5-7 (Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy) were all part of the adventure, and so began a new monthly line of adventures based on everyone’s favorite Time Lord.

Doctor Who: Saying Goodbye to the Companions

In just a short while, I’ll be checking out the latest episode of Doctor Who.  I could have already, but I wanted to preserve the quantum uncertainty of the story a little bit longer.  Because the rumor is that Jenna Coleman’s Clara will Face the Ravens in this story, maybe as a result of getting into that sleep chamber for a couple of seconds in the last story.  Maybe not.  It was sort of confusing. (Of course, she’s also slated to appear in the season finale in a couple of weeks, but with Doctor Who, that could mean anything).

Doctor Who: The Scorchies [Big Finish – The Companion Chronicles]

Recently, Big Finish, the audio-production company that is licensed to produce official Doctor Who spin-off material, celebrated Christmas with a different discounted title over a 12 day period (Twelve Days of…you get it, right?), and one of them was this one – The Scorchies, part of Big Finish’s “Companion Chronicles” series.
