1 Classic Who rewatch on Tue Jul 31, 2018 4:45 am

After a several month break, I’m continuing with my DW rewatch. Tonight, I watched “The Chase” and I’m thinking about starting “The Time Meddler”.

I heard a rumour that the Time Tots Team are doing their Classic Who watches with the video running faster than normal. I sort of understand this for the early episodes, but there are so many little expressions that I think are missed when you watch it fast compared to the normal speed. It makes me sad that these people get attention (maybe paid??) to do this and they can’t even give it the proper respect of watching it at speed.

(Don’t get me started on some of their reviews - the few paragraphs I read about “Deadly Assassin” were enough to make me angry.

I do love “The Time Meddler”. But an interesting thing about Galaxy Four. Do you think maybe they foresaw Third-Wave Feminist? Look at the philosophies of the Drahvins and let me know your houghts.

'(Of males) They consume valuable food and fulfil no particular function.'

Probably sounded villainous at the time, sounds completely regular now. You'll probably hear this sort of thing unironically from FemWho and Co. in the glory year(s) to come.

Here's some lovely quotes from Whovian Feminism (Alyssa Franke) a woman who members of the Who production team including, Steven Mofftwat, RTD, Paul Cornell, and Rachel Talalalalalalalalalalallalalalalay have all promoted and said they are big fans of.

Look I'm Not Saying All Men Are Trash

Ban Men

Whovian Feminism can of course take the high ground as its not like she has ever condoned female characters being sexualised, except when she retweeted all of those lesbian porn cartoon pictures of River Song and Pissy Missy shagging Jodie's Doctor.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. People like Whovian Feminism are bigots (and also money grubbers) That's what all of this female Doctor crap is about. Its about taking roles away from men.

I am watching The Curse of Peladon. Watching a story that echoes the UK negotiating entry into the EU (the EEC then) certainly makes this story feel very relevant to modern times. Secondly, how wonderfully subtle the scene in the throne room was (when The Doctor and Jo are first introduced). "The pilot was exceedingly inefficient" was marvellously delivered by Katy Manning, and Pertwee's reaction is priceless. And the "See you later!" moment, showing Jo's unwitting faux pas, amid The Doctor's faint disapproval / exasperation, is also marvellous. The dignity of the Third Doctor is so good to watch, and the subtlety of the writing is in complete contrast to the sledgehammer tactics of the modern programme.
As Doctor Who fans, there must be good reasons why and how we fell in love with the show in the first place. I was fascinated by the show's imagination and the Fourth Doctor, and watched regularly from season 17. As a teenager, any chance to find copies of the show from the 70s made me appreciate it all the more. And finding 60s Who was like watching magic. All in the context of watching the contemporary show in the 80s. I still find it hard to realise that 80s Who is now 30 years old (and more), and what I viewed as contemporary is now a bygone era. I recommend watching one of the extras on the Revenge of the Cybermen DVD that shows the unique experience it was of being a fan in those days and trying to find old stories as the VHS releases began appearing, and many stories were very hard to get hold of. Great times.

As an American, I was lucky to get both Third and Fourth Doctor serials on different days/times because I grew up in a place with two PBS stations. Sadly I was the only person I knew who knew what Doctor Who was.

This difference of experience might explain why I have a bit of a different POV. I’ll watch most episodes because I feel just glad to have ANYTHING.

I would like to see “The Celestial Toymaker” in color and found. I still enjoy what I can of it.
