Let’s make magic!

Part One

Me: OK. This is it. This is the big one. Not only is this our 150th story, it’s the 25th anniversary story as well. This was a big deal back in 1988.

Sue: Ooh, that does sound exciting.

Me: Hold onto your hat!

I press Play…

Sue: Silver Nemesis. I wonder what that refers to.

Me: Go on…

Sue: Does William Hartnell come back again. Is that it?

Telos about it…

I'm a CelebrityColin Baker continues to impress Sue in at least one TV show…

Sue: Colin’s lovely. He’s my tip to win. Colin doesn’t have a bad word to say about anyone. He’s the perfect gentleman, always comforting everyone around him. And he’s shedding plenty of weight, mainly thanks to Helen, although she did come good in the end. That was great telly by the way.

But watching I’m ...

The Five Doctors
Daleks, Yeti, Cybermen… BINGO!

We watched the original broadcast version of The Five Doctors. Sadly, I couldn’t source an off-air copy with the Children in Need ticker running across the bottom of the screen. I hope this doesn’t invalidate the science at the heart of this experiment.

The Five DoctorsNicol: I’m not watching any William Hartnell with you. You can forget it.

Me: Be patient, Nicol.

Sue: Don’t worry, Nic. Neil’s promised me ...

Me: He’s about to take over as script editor. Oh, and he wrote The Visitation.

Sue: Script editor?! How did that happen? The Visitation was rubbish!

EarthshockThe first episode of Earthshock begins on Earth.

Sue: These paintballers have some serious kit. They’ve got an Igloo tent for a start. I’ve always wanted an ...

Always believe in, because you are – Gold!

Part One

Revenge of the CybermenSue: Is there anything I should know about this one before we begin?

Me: Only that this story was the first one to be released on video cassette by the BBC.

Sue: Any particular reason?

Me: Well, fans who attended the very first official Doctor Who convention at Longleat in 1983 were asked to suggest which story they’d like to ...

The Invasion
It’s the Cybermens’ turn to invade London as Sue is introduced to a new format for the show…

The InvasionBecause The Invasion is split across two DVDs, the menu screen leads Sue down the garden path.

Sue: Four episodes. Excellent.

I know that I’ll pay for it later, but I decide not to correct her mistake. That would be the same as slapping an innocent, smiling baby in the face. And that would ...

It’s The Wife in Space on The Wheel in Space!

Before we begin, I would like to apologise for the delay to this update. It was Sue’s birthday last week, and to celebrate it we threw a very large party. Funnily enough, none of our guests wanted to watch The Wheel in Space over the course of the weekend, and by the time things got back to normal, and our hangovers had subsided, we found ourselves seriously behind schedule. Sorry about ...

The Tomb of the Cybermen
Season Five. Some people call it the Monster Season. Some people call it the Base Under Siege Season. I call it the Make Or Break Season.

You’ll be pleased to hear that we didn’t watch any Doctor Who during our 12th wedding anniversary celebrations. Of course we didn’t. No, we watched an episode of Torchwood instead.

As Captain Jack Harness takes a break from saving the world to have a quick shag.

Sue: From the same franchise that brought you The Faceless ...

The experiment is over! And then it’s back on again! Just like the Cybermen, we’re all over the shop this week…

Episode 1

The MoonbaseSue: I bet the Moon was very topical when this originally went out.

Me: Just a bit.

Sue: I’m not convinced by the Ronson hairdryers on their backs, and their helmets are steaming up something rotten. I notice that they’re using the same wires from The Underwater Menace. ...

It’s taken us 86 episodes, 33 recons, two films that don’t count, and 32 blog updates to reach The Tenth Planet. But it’s far from being all over…

Episode 1

The Tenth PlanetSue: Yay! It’s The Tenth Planet! I know all about this one.

OK, it’s time for me to come clean. It would be fantastic if Sue had been oblivious to the significance attributed to this story, but she wasn’t. I ...
