Classic Doctor Who Marathon Is Returning To Twitch


If you’ve missed the first 55 years, now is your big chance!  Twitch will be hosting another Classic Doctor Who marathon beginning January 5th.  From ‘An Unearthly Child’ to ‘Survival’ and all existing episodes in between, Doctor Who will take over my Twitch channel for the next seven weeks.  The kind folks over at DoctorWhoTv have provided a schedule so you can be sure not to miss your favorite episode from the classic era of the show (mine?  A tossup between ‘Logopolis’ and ‘The Caves of Androzani’…hmm…maybe this explains why I’m never really bothered when it comes to regeneration time).  No word just yet on if we’ll get a follow-up ‘Torchwood’ marathon).  Catch all of the episodes right on my Twitch Channel.

Heads up!

The heights of every classic Doctor and companion that I could locate (Some are missing, sorry), in Imperial measurements


1st Doctor: 5′8″

Barbara: 5′7″-5′9″

Ian: 6′0″

Susan: 5′1″

Vicki: 5′2″

Steven: 5′11″-6′1″

Sara Kingdom: 5′6″

Polly: 5′6″

2nd Doctor: 5′8″

Jamie: 5′6″-5′8″

Victoria: 4′11″

Zoe: 5′0″

3rd Doctor: 6′2″

Liz: 5′5″

The Brig: 6′1″

Yates: 6′0″

Benton: 6′2″

Jo: 5′1″

Sarah Jane: 5′4″

4th Doctor: 6′3″

Harry: 6′0″-6′2″

Leela: 5′6″

K9: 2′3″ (I’m sorry but I had to 😀 Took this measurement from a life-size cutout of K9 on Amazon!)

Romana I: 5′5″

Romana II: 5′5″

Adric: 5′5″

Tegan: 5′2″

5th Doctor: 6′1″

Nyssa: 5′0″-5′1″

Turlough: 5′9″

Peri: 5′3″

6th Doctor: 6′0″

Mel: 5′1″

7th Doctor: 5′6″

Ace: 5′3″

So what did we learn today? Apparently both Romanas are the same height (I thought Romana I would be taller by a long shot), and Ace and Peri are the same height (I somehow imagined Peri to be significantly taller…) Also, Victoria is far far far smaller than I had ever envisioned.

I kind of envisioned Peri being a bit taller too… I know you don’t have Ben but I think he was around 5′9″ or so? He appeared to be slightly taller than Jamie.

Thanks for putting this all together!

Who to Fight: Classic Who Doctors


One: Don’t let his elderly appearance fool you. He can engage in good old fisticuffs when he needs to. Though, odds are, Chesterton will step in before it gets to that, and he is very capable.

Two: You could take him, though be wary of the young Scottish man with him. He’s not a great fighter, but he will leave it all on the line to protect the Doctor.

Three: He’s got several different ways to get you off your feet or knock you out with his Venusian Aikido, and all with a gentlemanly air. Failing that, he likely has a Brigadier at his side who will not hesitate to shoot at you for threatening the Doctor. Do not fight.

Four: He has no problem getting down and dirty with a rough brawling style, and will most likely win. If you really want to get hurt, start the fight by threatening to hurt Sarah Jane. Do not fight.

Five: You could take him, but why would you? He’s the most polite of the Doctors, and will even apologize whenever he does get a hit on you.

Six: If you take it too far with him, he has little problem killing you. Do not fight.

Seven: He will talk you into punching yourself before you got a hit on him. Do not fight.

Eight: You could take him, but really, just leave the poor man alone. He’s got enough problems with his amnesia spells and other abuse the universe heaps on him.



My beautiful girl

You’re the beatifulest thing I know

The person closest to my heart

I want your smile to brighten up my day

Every morning, every night

I want you to hold me tight

And I’ll tell you, that I’ll never leave you

Because when you laugh

The sun shines brighter

But when he holds you

I see the future

And I know, one day you’ll go

But even if you do, you are still my beaitiful girl

The beautifulest thing that I know

You have all the love in my heart

And oh you’re so incredibly smart

My clever little girl

So bright and brilliant

How badly do I wish for you to stay

But know, even if you got to go

I’ll always love you, my beautiful girl

Aww this is so lovely 🙂



Gold all over the ground

If I had you at my mercy

There’s no telling what I’d do

But I’d sit and make you listen

For an hour, maybe two

And then you’d know I need you

Every day that rolls around

And your feet would walk on velvet

With gold all over the ground

A sky full of diamonds

And your nights would not be black

Yes, you would really love it

And if you’re ever down

I’d give you rows of roses

And gold all over the ground

I’d pick you up and carry you ‘cross every stream I see

And I’d bundle you in kindness

Until you cling to me

We’d sit beneath strong branches

Your arms would twine around

Yes, you would really love it

And if you’re ever down

I’d turn your green to emerald

And give you gold all over the ground

Ahhh this was so lovely! I’ve been in a crummy mood the past 2 days (getting over being sick and female problems :P) but this put such a smile on my face. Thank you! 🙂
