Timelash [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 – 1985 – 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.

Doctor Who Convention Encounters: Blake’s 7 Actors

I’ve had a couple of posts lately about the connections between Doctor Who and Blake’s 7 (here and here).

I’ve also had some posts about some actors I’ve met at conventions (here and here and elsewhere).

Now it’s time to bring these two worlds together! (Kind of like watching Alien vs. Predator, or something).

Blake’s 7–the Doctor Who Connections (Part 2–the Actors)

In thinking about the TV show Blake’s 7 recently (for reasons that will be coming up soon), I’ve been noting how many connections there are between that British science fiction series and another one that we all know and love, Doctor Who. Indeed, when Blake’s 7 hit the United States in the 1980’s, it was really the Doctor Who crowd who formed the fanbase.

Sherlock Holmes, Blake’s 7, Jeremiah Bourne, Cicero–a Big Finish sampler

In the wake of the whole COVID-19 pandemic, Big Finish–most famous for their original and licensed Doctor Who audios–began to release a variety of projects for free on a weekly basis.  Some of these were related to Doctor Who but many others were based on different licensed properties or even completely original series.    tried to snatch up a bunch of the stuff when it was available, and have just recently gotten around to checking a bunch of it out.

Big Finish has been pretty generous with all this free product, but each one also serves as a sampler to tempt me to buy other material.  Do they work?
