Long, long ago (1985) the BBC put Doctor Who (then staring Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor) on “hiatus” while pre-production was underway for it’s 23rd season. When the show came back 18 months later an entirely different Season 23 was produced. A few of the stories from the “lost” season 23 have been novelized but most have not.
The new series of Doctor Who begins airing tonight on the Sci-Fi channel in the US. The first two episodes will air back to back. I’ve seen it and it’s good stuff. Watch it! Set your Tivo.
You can find the schedule here.
Haven’t posted much lately (still waiting for my new glasses), but this is big news. The 2005 Series of Doctor Who is finally going to air in the US (there’s a nice summary at Outpost Gallifrey). I’ve seen it, and it’s great. I can’t begin to explain how great it is. Even Denise enjoyed watching it. There’s no need to have seen the classic series to enjoy this, so don’t let the show’s history put you off.
