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

You did a super job wrapping things up! And I'm not just saying that because I have to!

poo poo, I'd better get started on a big rewatch leading up to the finale soon. Might as well start back at The Empty Child, since it's the end of the Moffat era too...

It would have been fun but Lowe was pretty much perfect. I don't know if Pertwee could have had the interplay with Le Mesurier (specifically Mainwaring's massive inferiority complex) that made the character really work.

Yes, and the fact that Wilson literally looks down on him due to his size works so perfectly for that character dynamic, it's all just fuel for Mainwaring's simmering resentment at being out-classed on every level by an inferior officer. The gag wouldn't have worked with Pertwee for obvious reasons.

Funnily enough, the news had this to say about the Mugabe deal:

quote:

Iain Levine, deputy executive director for programmes at Human Rights Watch, said on Twitter: “Given Mugabe’s appalling human rights record, calling him a goodwill ambassador for anything embarrasses WHO and Dr Tedros.”

No, Iain is not Ian. But this line did cause at least one of my eyebrows to rise, before I figured out what was going on.

Maybe. We're going to get one line of dialogue and then nothing for more months. I'm going to look at the period after the Christmas special but before her first full episode as an Interdoctum.

Yeah, last I read they aren't targeting season 11 to start airing until autumn 2018, so it'll be a long wait.

I liked Colditz (which also features pre-Doctor Who David Tennant), Red (100 mins of McCoy saying "Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrred!"), and Night Thoughts (adapted from an unused TV story).

Start with whatever you find interesting; the stories are mostly stand-alone though there are arcs in some of them. I'd also recommend Light at the End, Big Finish's very fun, but nonsense 50th anniversay special - as a good smorgasbord of how the doctors act.

There's also some pretty good pure historicals in there too, for a nice change of pace.

[e]: Echoing MrL_JaKiri, though, they are pretty good stories.
[e2]: gently caress, also check out Davros. Terry Malloy is loving amazing.

This introduction is pretty much what convinced me that I needed to start listening to Big Finish stuff in earnest.

The Harvest is ace. It's written by Dan Abnett and introduces Hex, a recurring companion for 7, and is generally a cool and good story.
