Doctor Who: The Masters of Luxor

If there are parallel universes, there is surely one in which all Doctor Who fans know “The Masters of Luxor.” This story was originally intended to be the second episode or story arc in the series. Instead, “The Daleks” was chosen to serve that purpose, and the rest is history. But the story is an [Read More…]

Doctor Who: Blogging the First Doctor

Here is a round-up of my blogging about the earliest seasons of Doctor Who, as originally portrayed by William Hartnell.

Doctor Who: The Sea Devils

The Doctor Who episode “The Sea Devils” covers ground very similar to other Doctor Who episodes featuring “Silurians” (in this episode the Doctor remarks that it is a misnomer and they really ought to be called Eocenes). Homo Reptilia of a different but related species are emerging from a self-induced slumber. They hid away in [Read More…]
