I am a huge fan of Doctor Who, I have been a fan since I was a very small child.
The first episode I remember is the one with the giant spiders where Sarah Jane-Smith literally had it on her back. I was terrified – I hated spiders anyway. The first Doctor Who think I really remember having is the Doctor Who Monster Book with the pull out poster that my parents insisted on putting above my bed.
The effects back then were crude but you know what, they were fit for purpose and until Star Wars came along – they were good effects.
My grandfather watched that episode with me hurried me to bed before my parents got back. He was babysitting.
They found out – I could not keep my mouth shut or sleep and then they started to allow me to watch more Doctor Who. I remember being able to watch the last episode of the first Tom Baker story with the giant robot and then slowly more and more.
Basically I grew up with the good Doctor.
I own all the DVD’s that were released in their original format, I own some Blu’s until the latest batch that I have not caught up on and I would watch every episode on TV until now.
Today it occurred to me that it was just propaganda driven by the PC correct brigade that had turned what was a pretty good program into pure shit.
This is nothing to do with Jodie, although she’s not good at working with the rubbish they give her and she pulls this stupid ( meant to be cute dumb look with her top lip all the time ). Not this is because the BBC have turned Doctor Who into a documentary.
I walked by the TV and one of the retro type old channels was on. It had an episode with David Tennant and Donna Noble as an assistant. There was Dalek’s, explosions and lots of running around. When you reflect on what Doctor Who now is – it’s a great piece of visual recording with lovely looking landscapes and panning cameras. Lot’s of historic talking about Rosa Parks and the partitioning of India – but my god…
…the BBC have killed the fun in the program.
After many decades, much spent on this – we really are at the Death of the Doctor.
Thank you BBC for wasting what was a good program and making it into a documentary and somehow sapping and draining every ounce of fun from it. If I want some heavy history I'll read about historical events - thank god I have my old DVD's and you know what, if the current writing team leave - perhaps the current cast will be given something useful to work with.
If anyone watches Doctor Who still, if they manage to make a decent eposide of the program with the awful writing skills they have - please give me a shout on here. I would love to watch an eposide with Jodie and companions given something to work with that is fun and a good blast for an hour or so.
