The unaired pilot episode for An Unearthly Child is so dark and unsettling that it seems to have been trying to set the stage for a fundamentally different show. Not to mention dr. who is so thoroughly unlikable in the unaired pilot I did a double take, thinking isn’t this how you introduce an antagonist? gosh every time I rewatch it I get shocked by this all over again
Yes and I’m not sure how close the TV movie “An Adventure in Space and Time” to actual events but watching that unaired pilot I can see why Bill Hartnell would have had problems with the Doctor’s portrayal there (where he said something to Verity about him being too grouchy and asking “Where’s the twinkle?”).
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.
