For some reason the schedule page has gone so at the mo I can only tell you the planned stories and not the times for the repeats. I'm sorry about that. If I find the times I'll update.
The Visitation // Black Orchid // Earthshock // Time-Flight
The Visitation is really good. Like Doctor Who comfort food. Black Orchid is a lovely wee story. Earthshock is epic. And Time-Flight........ well. Its utter shite. At least from memory and reputation. Its been a loooooooooooooong time. Looking forward to finding out.
Up tonight we have the start of the 20th season! We have a trip to Amsterdam in the rather ropey Arc of Infinity. Worth checking out to see a familiar face though. Then we have the rather splendid Snakedance. Also worth watching for a familiar face, in some ridiculous costumes. Then finally its the excellent Maydryn Undead. This also has a familiar face. A quite charming face.
Terminus, Enlightenment, The King's Demons, Warriors Of The Deep | Block start times- 19:00 | 01:26 | 07:53
Terminus is a decent story but not a particularly good production. Enlightenment is utterly wonderful. A superb outing. Kings Demons is....... er. And Warriors of the Deep. Well....... this makes me so sad. Its rubbish. On paper its a perfectly fine story but boy oh boy how it ended up on screen.
The Five Doctors would have taken place between Kings Demons and Warriors of the Deep btw. But it has a Dalek in so wont get shown.
Am working tonight so will probably miss the best bits.

How come, Matt? Can't Twitch stream episodes with Daleks in? I'm sure we have seen one or two that featured Daleks, dude?

Seems to be some kind of rights issue. Probably costs more to show non-Terry Nation written Daleks because they have to pay his estate and maybe the original writer or whatever. If not that I dunno. Basically all the 80s Dalek stories are being skipped. Bit of a bugger really. Its a good job I included most of them in the Club! (I've decided to pause that till the Twitch thing is done then I'll finish it off.
Aye. But I'm hoping its not a long shift. But it could be a party and they might hang around for drinks.
Been out all day. Sorry for lateness with regards to tonights eps. It should be a pretty damn good night though.
The Awakening, Frontios, Planet Of Fire, The Caves Of Androzani | Block start times- 19:00 | 01:22 | 07:44
Not seen Awakening in years but its good. I love Frontios. Its bloody good. Planet of Fire is a little mixed but has some nice bits. Androzani IS strawberry floating AMAZING AND IF YOU DONT TAKE THIS CHANCE TO WATCH IT YOU DESERVE BAD THINGS.
Sadly between Frontios and PoF there should be a Dalek story. A pretty good one. Miles better then the one with the TOTP people.
In other news the trailer for Series 11 will drop during the World Cup Final.

Uhm... I'm currently watching the "end" of the Anderson v Isner tennis match and - if it ever finishes! - it's then Djokovic v Nadal. I may try and watch tennis and Who simultaneously; nothing can go wrong with this approach .
