Finished Loki last night and I think it’s one of my favourites of the TV shows. It’s definitely worth your time and the ending was smartly done.
Just started watching the entire Dr Who on BBCiPlayer. Brings back memories of my childhood, esp. seeing William Hartnell again. Just finished Daleks: Invasion Earth. At the moment just watching the sci-fi stuff, the historical stuff doesn't interest me that much. Maybe later.
I'm watching random Dr Who on iplayer that I'd never seen before, or only seen part of the story.
The Sensorites (Hartnell) - yawn. Gave up after 2 episodes.
The Tenth Planet (Hartnell) - great.
Power of the Daleks (Troughton's first story) - also great. I now appreciate what the "I am your soldier" lines in Victory of the Daleks (Smith) were riffing off.
The Happiness Patrol (McCoy) - um, er... well it was more fun than The Sensorites. Nice idea, failed by naff bad guy and unconvincing puppet.
I've been doing much the same, albeit on ITVX until iPlayer started saving me 6 quid a month!
Ambassadors of Death - exactly the Avengers/Quatermass riff it always sounded like.
Web of Fear - turned out to be a better novelisation than story.
Sun Makers - loads of great lines, in what must be one of the cheapest stories ever made (so much wandering around concrete corridors).
Back to watching late Capaldi ones now, while waiting for the 25th.
I watched more Doctor Who...
Dragonfire (McCoy) - yeah, yeah you've seen Aliens. But you needed to light it and perform it like Earthshock and not fill it with pratfalls and cute kids who add nothing to the plot if you wanted me to be engaged.
The Greatest Show in the Galaxy (McCoy). Would have been brilliant if they'd done it as a 2 parter instead of padding it to 4. Too much capture, escape, random person we don't care about dies, rinse & repeat. Come back The Happiness Patrol, all is forgiven!
