That was nice wasn’t it?
The first ever serial, An Unearthly Child is on BBC4 right now. They're on episode 2/4 but fuck all happens in episode 1 anyway
I was a bit sceptical during the first ten minutes, as all the early-60s social commentary was a bit on-the-nose. But yeah, the scenes of Hartnell struggling with his ill-health were heartbreaking. Matt Smith's cameo sounds like a really lame idea on-paper, but it had me welling up like nobody's business.
If Hartnell really was distraught about being replaced, hopefully he took some solace when Patrick Troughton was succeeded by Jon Pertwee, and cemented the regeneration thing so the show could survive past people leaving.
Gatiss really is a sickeningly talented git, isn't he?
No mention of the Google Doodle...! 8-bit Doctor Who platform game :)
(or the article about it from the paper, at least)
But you've kinda lost authority round these parts.
