50 years ago last week was Doctor Who history. The Tenth Planet episode 4 featured the Doctor regenerating for the first time, as William Hartnell left the show to be replaced by Patrick Troughton. That story has been told to death, but the real story began the week after. The Power of the Daleks was Troughton's first serial as the Doctor incumbent, and to most, it's one of Doctor Who's finest stories. There's only one problem: a few years after broadcast, the master tapes were erased. It is estimated no one has seen the serial since as late as the mid-70's, when the last known copies were sent back from Australia. For decades, we've had to wonder what the story looked like, primarily using the surviving audio matched with telesnaps. Well, wonder no more.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nN45T4fJAeo

The BBC has animated the Power of the Daleks, and will be released episodically on the BBC Store daily starting November 5th, 50 years to the day after the first episode was broadcast. BBC America will broadcast all six episodes two weeks later on November 19th, and the serial will be released on DVD on 21 November in Region 2 (we don't know when it will be released in other regions). While it's not one a discovery of the missing episodes, the animation is as close as we're going to get barring some miraculous discovery in someone's attic.

Once that's over, it's just a few more weeks until the Return of Doctor Mysterio, the annual Christmas special and first new Doctor Who episode in exactly one year. Filming for Series 10/Season 36 is ongoing with a scheduled debut in April, so we can all hem and haw over all the writers being terrible until then, even if it turns out that original series writer returning is the ghost of Robert Holmes. I'd post a trailer for this, but there's no good one out yet.

Class is currently in session, so that's also going on. Note that the character of Ram will appear in the upcoming series.

The previous thread can be found here. Now for the formalities.

NO SPOILERS
By edict of the moderators, this is a SPOILER-FREE ZONE. Other than backstage stuff (hiring people), DO NOT POST SPOILERS. AT ALL. Even if Queen Elizabeth II, Barack Obama, and Vladimir Putin have a three-way press conference on every channel to reveal life on Mars and also that Martha Jones is a Rutan, DON'T POST IT HERE. If you must post about spoilers, go to the spoiler thread. Episode titles can be spoiler-y, so use discretion when discussing episodes yet to air. For example, 'Hide' doesn't spoil anything, but 'OH poo poo IT'S THE DALEKS' does.

WHERE DO I START?
If you want to start with the revival, you should start with The Eleventh Hour. This doesn't mean to disregard the 9th and 10th Doctor's stories, but it's the easiest way to get caught up. If you want to watch the original series, there are plenty of places to start. You COULD start with An Unearthly Child and watch everything in chronological order. You could also watch individual serials of all the Doctors and determine which you like the best. Keep in mind, don't shotgun a whole Hartnell or Troughton in one go, or else you'll get complacent. Those 60's episodes are meant to be seen one at a time, and if you only just rented the DVD, wait a few hours between episodes.

The most popular serials for the original series you can jump into are:

First Doctor: An Unearthly Child, The Aztecs
Second Doctor: The Tomb of the Cybermen, The Enemy of the World
Third Doctor: Spearhead from Space, Carnival of Monsters
Fourth Doctor: Pyramids of Mars, The Robots of Death
Fifth Doctor: Kinda, Frontios
Sixth Doctor: Vengeance on Varos, Revelation of the Daleks
Seventh Doctor: Dragonfire, Remembrance of the Daleks

WHERE CAN I WATCH DOCTOR WHO ON TELEVISION?

Original Series:
UK - Drama, Horror
USA - Retro TV, some PBS stations
Canada - you're out of luck
Australia - Syfy

Current Series:
UK - BBC One (first run), Watch
USA - BBC America (first run), most PBS stations
Canada - Space
Australia - ABC1 (first run), ABC2, BBC UKTV, Syfy

WHERE CAN I STREAM DOCTOR WHO?
Amazon Video is the exclusive streaming partner, featuring the current series up to and including Series 9/Season 35. The original series is noticeably missing from all streaming services, sadly. The upcoming Britflix will presumably carry the show, if and when it comes out.

SHOULD I BUY THE DVDs AND BLU RAYS?
Just for the bonus features alone. Also, because you can't stream the original series.

AN INCREASINGLY LESS BRIEF GUIDE TO BIG FINISH
There are hundreds, probably thousands of Doctor Who and Doctor Who-related audio dramas released by Big Finish Productions. This is not a post telling you what audio dramas to listen to, because everyone has an opinion that is different from everyone else (some people like Minuet in Hell, believe it or not). This is a post telling you the basic info on the different series of titles there are. I'm only covering ongoing ranges, since devoting a paragraph to the Stage Plays seems a bit silly. If you're wondering why I'm about to spend a good portion of the OP about audio dramas, you are clearly new to the Doctor Who thread.

The Monthly Range
Since 1999, Big Finish have released, on a consistent basis, mostly standalone stories featuring the Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh (formerly including Eighth) Doctors. Up to 218th(!) release this month.

The Fourth Doctor Adventures
Tom Baker gets his own line of releases.

Philip Hinchcliffe Presents
Back on again! Another Tom Baker line of releases, all based on stories written by former show-runner Philip Hinchcliffe.

The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield
The Doctor plays a supporting role to Bernice Summerfield, a companion introduced in the Virgin New Adventures.

Novel Adaptations
Based on Virgin New Adventures and Virgin Missing Adventures, the book ranges that lasted Doctor Who fans from 1991 to 1997.

The Eighth Doctor Adventures / Dark Eyes / Doom Coalition
Paul McGann's Doctor also gets his own line. Goons love 'em.

The War Doctor
Holy cow, Big Finish got John Hurt? You bet they did, and the Time War is heard for what might be the only time.

The Tenth Doctor Adventures
In slightly less astounding news, Big Finish got David Tennant and Catherine Tate to reprise their characters. Considering they are both in the prime of their careers, this range may not be regular.

The Companion Chronicles / The Early Adventures
This is important: THESE ARE NOT AUDIO DRAMAS. These are "enhanced audiobooks" for the most part, which means that one person does all the parts while another gives narration, but also contains sound effects and music cues. The Companion Chronicles usually feature just one actor, while the Early Adventures feature small casts.

Spinoffs
There are a ton of these, ranging from good (I, Davros) to who gives a poo poo (anything featuring a Big Finish-created companion).

Finally, TEN YEARS AGO we were extremely worried that Catherine Tate would ruin Christmas by being an insufferable character on Doctor Who. Today, the character of Donna is regarded as the most 3-dimensional of companions under RTD. Will history look kindly on Bill? Only time will tell.

Also, spoilers from that era referred to the episode that would be known as Blink would be the 'low budget' episode. Now THAT'S comedy.

Do Big Finish audios get discounted much? I've only got into them recently and while the first fifty in the main range are nice and cheap, it looks like it becomes an expensive habit after that. - $13 each is fine, but even if I just do McGann's stuff I have a decade-plus to catch up on. The bundles don't seem much cheaper, just more convenient, and the subscriptions aren't useful if I only want stories here and there. I don't want to whine, I'd just rather not go broke feeding my addiction if there's an alternative.

(I feel like I should admit that the main reason I picked McGann: I got into Doctor Who via the BBC Eighth Doctor Adventure books, and ended up collecting the whole series - still have them in the attic somewhere. Discovering years later that other people also thought a bunch were rubbish was kind of cathartic.)

P.S., Jerusalem, and the other person who did some in another thread: I haven't read very many, but I appreciate the write-ups!

I will have you know I am extremely practiced in imitating the bizarre gait of Peter Capaldi, and that my eyebrows are at worst passable.

Of course, there were far more accurate Twelve impersonators at the convention, including a positively uncanny and very enterprising fellow who, in a bizarre turn of events, turned out to be my second cousin once removed.

There are lost episodes of course. Stories that were commissioned but never made. Or made but misfiled, post broadcast. Sheer incompetence, of course.

So this past weekend, my friend gave me all her Doctor Who novels. She literally shoved two boxes of books (new and classic) into my hands and demanded I take them.

quote:

I canít read Doctor Who anymore. Iíll watch the show but I came to a realization this weekend.

The Doctor is a bad guy.

How many times has he just left a companion behind and NOT told their families? How many times has he just stood idly by and let an enemy die while talking about mercy and compassion? How many times has he acted as judge and jury and passive executioner? He killed his entire race and had already moved past it two incarnations later!

The Doctorís not a madman with a box. The Doctor is a psychopath with a box.

sorry doesn't bring
me back to life, Hal.


She's not wrong. The Doctor does good things on an often epic scale but at what cost?
