    Yes, that’s why I mentioned the other programmes. They’ve dropped by an average of 5%, but Series 9 and 10 dropped by more than 5%. Blogtor Who has a rather nice graph in which you can actually see the difference between the averages. What’s noticeable to me is that Peter Capaldi’s first series was fine. The ‘fall’ for that was exactly…[Read more]

    I stopped watching NG after about two series, but Troi usually got included on ‘diplomatic’ away teams. NG was much better at picking their away teams for a sensible reason than the original Star Trek, which usually seemed to go on the principle of ‘We’re paying William Shatner leading character wages and he’s damn well going to be in as…[Read more]

    They’re called culottes over here – and yes, they’re worn here in the UK, though I don’t know how much that comes from the 2017 publicity over the new costume reminding young women that the things exist. 🙂 They were quite popular back in the early eighties, which makes me think that the Whittaker Doctor may be acquiring her new clothes…[Read more]

  • @JimTheFish – I was assuming that Craig had that annoying thing known as Real Life to deal with and would get round to Episode 2 eventually.

    The audio commentary! It has John Leeson, Louise Jameson, Anthony Read (half the scriptwriter) and Matt Irvine (special effects).

    I think you ought to choose the Romana I story, because otherwise this Retrospective is in danger of turning into an ‘All The Stories JimTheFish Really Hates Retrospective.’ 😀

    Sorry you don’t like it – I agree about the sets, which definitely had a ‘someone find the plans from Deadly Assassin’ feel about them. The costumes were…[Read more]
