More #DoctorWho at #GenCon: Meeting Peter Davison

I had a great day at GenCon today. Here are some more Doctor Who photos, including me grinning like an idiot when meeting Peter Davison! And just in case Steven Moffatt doesn’t reunite classic and more recent Doctors for the 50th anniversary, GenCon brought them together, more than once. Here’s one example: [Read more...]

#DoctorWho and Cardhalla at #GenCon

On one side of the exhibit hall, Who North America has a store, with a TARDIS and a Dalek. I will try to get someone to take my picture with them before the end of the day! I'm glad I went to get Peter Davison's autograph when I did. There was no line then, while [Read More...]

I’m Going to GenCon!

GenCon is a fun annual event here in Indianapolis. This year, I’ll be going for the first time. Peter Davison and Walter Koenig will be there. I will probably wear a costume. Given the focus of my fandom, I feel it really ought to be something Doctor Who related, rather than the Star Trek uniform [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The Council of Nicaea

I mentioned during the summer that I had become aware of the Big Finish Doctor Who audiobook, Doctor Who: The Council of Nicaea. I finished listening to it not that long ago, and I must say that I am even more impressed than I thought I would be. First, the story features the Fifth Doctor and [Read More...]

Doctor Who and the Council of Nicaea

I have focused in my listening and reading on actual episodes of the Doctor Who television series, or novelizations thereof. But I think the time has come for me to branch off into other audiobooks. You see, I’ve just learned that there is a story about the Doctor visiting the Council of Nicaea! Apparently Arius [Read More...]

Doctor Who: Blogging the Fifth Doctor

The Fifth Doctor, played by Peter Davison, was the first I ever saw on Doctor Who. It therefore seems appropriate that it should be the episodes featuring the Fifth Doctor that I have finished blogging through first. Here are links to all my blog posts about Doctor Who episodes from the Peter Davison era: Castrovalva [Read More...]

Doctor Who: Castrovalva

The episode “Castrovalva” marked the beginning of the era of the Fifth Doctor, played by Peter Davison, until then the youngest actor to have played the role. The actor, writers, and the show itself had their work cut out for them. Tom Baker had occupied the role for longer than anyone previously or since, a [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The Caves of Androzani

“The Caves of Androzani,” the final episode of Peter Davison’s stint as the Doctor, is summed up well in something that the Doctor says in this episode: “Curiosity has always been my downfall.” In this case, the Doctor visits a rather barren world, Androzani Minor, for no obvious reason, and of course happens across some [Read More...]

Doctor Who: Frontios

The episode “Frontios” from the classic Doctor Who series is in many ways a forerunner of the episode “Utopia” in the David Tennant era. The Doctor and his companions end up in humanity’s far future. The Doctor shows concern for the policy of the time lords to not intervene – and of course, it doesn’t [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The Awakening

“The Awakening” is another relatively short episode (by the classic series’ standards, not by today’s, when most episodes are roughly an hour long). In it, the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough go to visit Tegan’s grandfather, and in the village discover that elaborate war games reenacting the time of the English Civil War are underway. The [Read More...]
