There is no Macra - or maybe there is
Encouraging news in the UK press is that two more missing stories are apparently about to get the animation treatment. The Macra Terror will get a full animation, and The Wheel In Space will have its missing episodes animated.
No official announcement from the BBC yet, but if this IS true the Beeb will probably bring forward there announcement to capitalise on the buzz.

Another cameo for the TARDIS
The Librarians Season 2 Episode 10 “And the Final Curtain”
Time travel stories hate or like?
I like time travel shows and really enjoy seeing/reading others views of what time travel is and what can and cannot be done.
I do have a question. When the team was in the time machine room and looking at some of the time travel machines Cassandra pulled back a sheet. It was only visual for a second and not a full view but my daughter and I both think we saw the TARDIS. Did anyone else see the TARDIS? It would not be the TARDIS first cameo appearance in a TV show. The DeLorean also made a cameos in the "time machine room". They moved so fast I wonder if there were any other time machines/parts in the room.

Would Disney been a good deal for Doctor Who?
Would Disney had been a good deal for Doctor Who? I have read that in the 1980s and 1990s when Disney was trying to buy all that was TV they attempted to buy the rights to Doctor Who. Then around 2015 or so there was a story that Disney had purchased Doctor Who. I went the whole range of emotion. “Oh no not Disney!!!” “Doctor Who will be ruined!!! “Great if anyone will drain every cent out of something Disney will.” “Maybe at last we will get the answer to some of the backstories.” “The story must be really bad if they have to use this headline to get people to click on it.”
Now that I have seen what Disney is doing with Star War I’m thinking that my second reaction would have been correct. For better or worst we could have gotten stories why the Doctor left ...Read more

There may be hope for the lost.
There may be hope for the lost. We have discussed this before but if you stayed and watched the extra after the movie Mark Gatiss even suggested that they should remake the lost stories. When I first heard that David Bradley was going to play William Hartnell I was okay with it as long as he did not play the Doctor in Doctor Who stories. It just seem wrong to replace an actor who has passed.
Now I don’t have a problem with the Big Finish Companion Chronicles because the decease actors are being replace. But after seeing David Bradley playing the first Doctor has changed my mind. He really took on William Hartnell. It was not a copy or impersonation. Bradley captured what made Hartnell’s Doctor the original.

(Spoiler alert) Classic Doctors New Monsters Volume Two.
It was great to have Tom Baker back. He is still the top when it comes to one liners. This post is about story 2.2 with Peter Davison “Empire of the Racnoss”. Now Big Finish has not become as PC as the BBC has so this may or may not be an issue. It was the second time that my wife asked if the spider was crying. She was already having trouble with the Racnoss voices. This got me thinking. Twice when confronted when she did not have an answer she turned to tears. This a female who want to conquer the universe and kill 100’s of billions break down in stereotype female tears. Unsure if this was falling back on an overuse cliché or a clever use of symbolism to stress how much alike. Whatever it was it just hit me as funny.

The First Doctor is back
The First Doctor is back, in the form of David Bradley, but you knew that already, or did you?

It may be that Moffat's biggest legacy to the show may actually be breathing new life into the old classic series.

"My name is William Hartnell, and as Doctor Who, I make my debut on Saturday 23rd November at 5.15." Doctor Who is the longest-running science fiction TV series in history, airing initially from 1963 to 1989. The series told the story of the Doctor, a mysterious traveller in space and time, whose TARDIS can take him and his companions anywhere in time and space. Inevitably he finds evil at work wherever he goes… The series was postponed indefintely in 1989, but fans of the series would not allow it to die, and a whole cottage industry was created around original novels and audio-only productions. There was an abortive attempt to renew the franchise as a series of telemovies in the U.S., but ratings for the pilot were judged insufficient. In 2003, the BBC announced that, at long last, it would commission a revival of Doctor Who. The series, initially starring Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor, was launched in 2005. You can read about the new series here. Traditionally listed by production, the data on this site has now been amended to TV.com standards and lists each of the 697 broadcast episodes from the original series. I hope that you find the site useful, and that it might act as a springboard to the wider world of Doctor Who appreciation. TheOldBillmoreless
