The Timeless Child is THE DOCTOR? Oh, for God's sake!




Doctor Who is a long-running British television programme about a time-travelling alien, alias 'the Doctor', who goes around solving problems in time and space. There are good times and there are bad times to be a fan of Doctor Who. We're not in a good time.

When Jodie Whittaker was announced to be the 13th Doctor, there was much rejoice over the casting of a woman. The issue many people forgot was that Chris Chibnall was the new showrunner. During his run, all the goodwill Whittaker's casting gained has evaporated after episodes that range from 'inoffensive' to 'offensive' aired. Now, with an even smaller season (due to the COVID-19 pandemic, not ineptitude), there are rumors that we may move on to a 14th Doctor after next season. Again, Doctor Who isn't going anywhere (thanks to foreign sales of future seasons), but there are an abundance of problems with the show going forward. Oh, and we're getting a new companion named Dan next season.

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

NO SPOILERS gently caress it, I don't know what we do about spoilers now
We have a designated spoiler thread, but under Chibnall the amount of spoilers have dried like the lake in that one episode. Use your best judgement. 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?
The Woman Who Fell to Earth is a good starting point, as the current Doctor makes her first starring appearance there. This is not to discount Doctors 9-12, but so far their stories have not made a major point in the tenure of Whittaker's Doctor. 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?
BritBox is the place to watch almost every episode of the original series. In addition, you're in luck if you're an American, as you can watch the original run of Doctor Who on honest-to-goodness TV (Retro TV and some PBS stations)!

For the current run:

ON TELEVISION
UK - BBC One (first run), W
USA - BBC America (first run), most PBS stations
Canada - CTV Sci-Fi
Australia - ABC (first run), ABC ME, Syfy

STREAMING
UK - Sky Go, BBC iPlayer
USA - HBO Max
Canada - Crave
Australia - BritBox, Stan

SHOULD I BUY THE DVDs AND BLU-RAYs?
Just for the bonus features alone.

THE ALL-NEW GUIDE TO BIG FINISH
There are literally THOUSANDS of Doctor Who and Doctor Who-related audio dramas released by Big Finish Productions. In previous threads, I would pour over all the individual lines and describe them. With the great restructure of Big Finish lines, though, I have to adapt. So, here are some bullet points:

-Doctors 1-12 have their own individual lines now, although obviously the first three Doctors are not played by Hartnell, Troughton, and Pertwee. Here's a handy guide: if it's current series Doctor Who, "Adventures" means it's the actual actors, while "Chronicles" means it's not.
-The Companion Chronicles & the Early Adventures generally do not feature the Doctor, and some of them are essentially audiobooks with sound effects. Check the cast list if you want to know which is which.
-If you have ever asked "what about <random character x>?", boy are you in luck! There are so many spin-offs featuring characters both familiar and unfamiliar that you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a series that makes you say "THEY got a box set?" Some are good, some are bad, most are unremarkable.
-Everyone has a taste, so don't rely on other people's opinions. For example, I don't care for or about the Charlotte Pollard, but some people do! Some crazy people enjoy the story Nekromanteia - you do you!

THE DISCORD
Here it is. The future is now!

FINALLY, let's take a look back....all the way to ten years ago! Discussion about Victory of the Daleks was steering into the Doctor acting chummy to Winston Churchill.

Be warned that most of the television write-ups feature a number of spoilers for future episodes as well, as they were all written months or years after I saw them on original airing. Audio write-ups may also feature references to episodes of the show, both classic and revival.

I'm always interested in the DW episodes that branch away from the usual tropes of science fiction into more obscure ones. Perhaps that's a bad way to phrase it because all tropes are tropes but, hm, how do I say this - odder tropes? For example, Warriors' Gate when they are stuck in E-Space:

Or Mind Robber when they are stuck in fairy tale land:


Does anybody have recommendations as to more of these? I guess I'm talking the odder the better. There is that old DW book where he, the fourth doctor?, and Romana are traveling backwards in time in a way. So they get to the place and everybody is like, thank you for saving us! I forgot it's title. Paradise or Carnival or something like that.

Enlightenment is kind of like that. It's more conventional than something like The Mind Robber (what isn't), but immortals having a space race on 18th century schooners is more out there than most.

Sure, today you're delighted your shoes fit perfectly, but a little later you'll be so excited you'll kiss the woman who inadvertently killed you, and then where will you be? It's a recipe for ending up mooning over a slip of a girl across multiple regenerations, though I should clarify that I mean ordinary moons when I say "mooning" and not giant eggs. Easy to mix those up.

Looking for other good Who novels, I can't recommend "The Sands of Time" by Justin Richards enough. Featuring Five, Nyssa, and Tegan, and a cult of Sutekh worshippers, it was the one novel I wised BF would've adapted for their Novel Adaptations range.

Bonus, it was reprinted a couple of years ago, so it shouldn't be hard to find.

Anything by Kate Orman (The Year Of Intelligent Tigers), Lance Parkin (Just War), Lloyd Rose (The Algebra Of Ice), Phillip Purser-Hallard (Nobody's Children), Kelly Hale (Erasing Sherlock), Mags L Halliday(History 101), Simon Bucher-Jones (The Taking Of Planet Five) and Lawrence Miles(Down). Simon Guerrier has written some excellent short stories, and does a pretty good job editing collections. His The Time Travellers is excellent.

Ben Aaronovitch is very good, though Transit suffers from a few issues. If you can track down Genis Loci or The Also People it's well worth your time.

Big fan of Paul Leonard and Jim Mortimore, particularly Dreamstone Moon and The Eye of Heaven, and Daniel O'Mahoney(The Cabinet of Light) has excellent prose.

Anything by Steve Cole (Ten Little Aliens), when he's pretending to be Tara Samms, is also really good. When he's not, he's often in a more workmanlike, Justin Richards type phase, though not always.

Jaqueline Rayner(EarthWorld) writes good, fun, fluffy reads, though -- ironically enough -- her best stuff has definitely been before she moved over to working on the New Series novels.

Finally, barring one or two shittier books, I really like Steve Lyons (The Witchfinders) and Paul Magrs (The Blue Angel).
