Doctor Who: Black Orchid

The episode “Black Orchid” from the Peter Davison era stands out as atypical in several respects. Not only is it relatively short (consisting of only two roughly half hour parts) but instead of the Doctor and his companions finding themselves in seemingly ordinary circumstances and discovering that something bizarre is going on, this time they [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The Daleks’ Master Plan (the first Doctor Who Christmas special)

It is appropriate that I have reached the episode “The Daleks’ Master Plan” from the William Hartnell era. In addition to being something of an epic – it had twelve parts! – it also can be said to be or at least contain the first “Doctor Who Christmas Special” – a tradition that continues to [Read More...]

Ouuuuuch

Another religion and sci-fi art mash-up gem from Jeff Carter. He added the following text at the bottom: And after eight days again his disciples were within, and E.T. was with them; then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said Peace be unto you. Then saith he to E.T., Reach hither [Read More...]
