Plus if you use it as an ice mold the TARDIS has a real­istic dema­te­ri­alza­tion effect! Okay, I may have made […]

Doctor Who Review: The Power Of The Daleks

Unfor­tu­nately despite being the first story for the Second Doctor and thus a rather pivotal moment in Doctor Who history, The Power of the Daleks is a story which is almost entirely missing from the BBC archives. Which does make it rather diffi­cult to watch, never mind review. Some years ago (okay it was prob­ably more like a couple of decades) I listened to the audio version which was a combi­na­tion of the tv episode sound track and narrated by Tom Baker and it seemed to be to be a really strong story. Though let's be honest Tom Baker's narra­tion can make anything sound good. This time round I watched a recon­structed version that consisted of the episode sound tracks, narra­tion by Anneke Willis (Polly in the story) and a collec­tion of film snip­pets and set photos timed to the audio.

Doctor Who Re-Review: Season 7 Episode 1 — Asylum of The Daleks

When Season 7 of Doctor Who aired, I posted (gener­ally short) reviews of the episodes which made up my initial impres­sions. Now that the season is avail­able in its entirety on Hulu+ I thought it might be inter­esting to do a re-watch and see how my opin­ions have changed or not. I'm also inter­ested to see how well the season progresses themat­i­cally and other­wise given the crit­i­cism it's received. My orig­inal review of Asylum of the Daleks can be found here and I was a bit nega­tive about. And a lot of my issues seemed to be with the pacing.

Doctor Who Reviews — The Dalek Inva­sion Of Earth At 50 years its inevitable of course that 60s Doctor Who shows its age and minis­cule budget. I've read that the budget for some episodes was as little as 2,000 UK pounds, which trans­lates to about $25,000 per episode today. Think about that for a moment. […]

Doctor Who Reviews — The Dalek Invasion Of Earth

At 50 years its inevitable of course that 60s Doctor Who shows its age and minis­cule budget. I've read that the budget for some episodes was as little as 2,000 UK pounds, which trans­lates to about $25,000 per episode today. Think about that for a moment. What sort of alien inva­sion do you think a US produc­tion today could manage on say $150,000? The reason I bring this up now is that in many ways The Dalek Inva­sion of Earth both tran­scends and is hampered by its tiny budget.
