Summary: Harry ‘Sideburns’ Sullivan is posh and a tiny bit sexist, the Doctor starts a habit of offering jelly babies and Sarah gets stuck in a ventilation shaft. It’s the 30th century, solar flares have destroyed the Earth and people in green sleeping bags are menacing a colony ship, but it’s good to see humanity are still using microfilm to store records. The fashion, however, is spot on as everyone wears rather lovely white suits. In other news, yet more newly-awoken bug eyed monsters try to re-claim the Earth.
Watch it because: Noah’s transformation of Shakespearean intensity.
Original Air Date: 25 January – 15 February 1975.
Doctor: Tom Baker.
Companions: Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) and Harry Sullivan (Ian Marter).
Writer: Robert Holmes, from a story by John Lucarotti.
I'm a 40-something scientist. I'm a big fangirl of most sci-fi, especially Doctor Who. I started watching in the early 80s when it was on PBS here in the US. Started again with the new series around 2006, stuck with that as much as I could and then got really into the Classic series again around 2014. I like to create art and write fanfiction. I'm also into Stargate, Mystery Science Theater 3000 and a few others, but I'll be blogging about Doctor Who here. I have a Tumblr blog of the same name but lately they've been wrongly flagging my photo posts as "adult content", so I decided to back up/move my blog to WordPress. I've backed up all my Tumblr posts and although my Tumblr blog is still active, I'll probably post here more often.
