One thing that stood out at the time as much as now was how McCoy's all-round entertainer personality became part of the 7th Doctor's, such as in Time & The Rani, Delta and the Greatest Show.

Perhaps Chibbers will get Jodie spooning too, as an attempt to boost ratings...?

I'm happy that the era ended on such a high note. I really don't see Chibnall bashing out a Fenric or Survival at the end of Jodie's miserable run. The production team should only pat themselves on the back once they deliver an episode that doesn't make Time-Flight look like a masterpiece in comparison.

Ghost Light is ridiculously easy to follow.

The only reason people snigger at those that claim they don't understand it is because they make it sound like some sort of ancient puzzle that takes intense concentration and deciphering for it to make sense.

lol I know. I saw it as a kid and didn't find it confusing. Some Doctor Who fans aren't the brightest flowers in the field, are they? LOL


I've honestly never understood what some people find confusing about Ghost Light. Confused

I can understand why he said no. But Sylvester acts great in his debut the Rani is back which is awesome i love her character the tetrap s are cool looking doglike bat creatures. I enjoy it a 7.9 or even 8 for me.

Time And The Rani and Silver Nemesis aside, The McCoy era was brilliant with a lot of new and interesting ideas and some of the best stories of the series and it won me back to the show back in 88.

The McCoy era is in my top 5 of all time. Season 24 is very dodgy, but I find Delta to be a guilty pleasure and can sit through Dragonfire if in the right mood. Remembrance is superb in every respect, The Happiness Patrol is an extremely underrated gem (sorry, Ronnie!), Silver Nemesis has a dodgy script but again functions as a guilty pleasure, and Greatest Show is a brilliant meta-commentary on the state of the programme as well as featuring some pertinent surrealist imagery. Battlefield gets shat on in many corners of fandom, though I personally quite like it, and think that the rest of season 26 is fantastic. There’s a rather inventive and unique atmosphere to the latter part of the era that really appeals to me, and the musical scores to stories like Ghost Light, Fenric and Survival are amongst the best and most evocative ever composed for the series.

I love this era so much. It has the best stories, companions, incidental music and direction. Remembrance and Fenric are on a completely different level to everything else in the series.

I don't expect apologies for having different tastes to me. Besides, I'm extremely thick-skinned. Lol
Up to a point, I'm a bit the other way round on the McCoy era than I am on the Colin Baker era. He had some fairly good stories as time went on, but I just think Sylv himself is terrible.
Remembrance is by far and away his best story by light years, and for me there's nothing in S26 that holds a candle to it, even though the stories in his final season show a marked improvement in tone, for the most part.
I can't abide S24, but I admit Dragonfire is a step in the right direction.
As for Happiness Patrol, there's a good story in there but it's just so terribly realised. To be honest, I'd rather watch Battlefield, in spite of Sylv's appalling acting. Jean Marsh alone makes it worth the price.
I think they were getting there with the likes of Fenric and Ghost Light. Even though the latter is poorly conceived and written, it's got way more atmosphere than anything in S24, which is the nadir of the classic series.

The apology wasn’t a sincere one- I was just acknowledging our difference in taste (though we seem to agree on quite a few other things).

I’ll admit that I haven’t actually watched season 24 in a long time, and I don’t know what I’ll think of it now. I might completely loathe it (I’m contemplating re-watching it soon. 😂). I’ll agree that Remembrance is certainly better written and structured than Ghost Light objectively, but I enjoy Ghost Light more due to its bizzare nature and atmosphere, and the fact that the story’s conceptual premise is so strange and interesting. I think most of my affections for the era are subjective more than anything else, to be fair, though I stand by that stories like Remembrance and Fenric are brilliant.
