    Classic Who Fans:

    Short Version: I'm looking for Best of Classic Who recs so I can familiarize myself with all the Doctors and Companions.

    Long Version: I'm a New Who fan who wants to get into the classic series, but there's a) so much of it, and b) the pacing of at least the First Doctor is really slow, and c) I don't quite have the time to push through a storyline if it doesn't interest me much.

    I would love to have a solid sense of each Doctor and Companion combination, as well as other important characters like the Master. I love character-centered and characterization-heavy dialogue, lively humor, doctor-companion interactions, the doctor's emotional speeches (especially Twelve's) – basically, I watch Doctor Who for the characters much more than for the plot, though I do love a well-executed premise, especially with interesting settings. I also tend to enjoy historical episodes more than futuristic ones, though futuristic certainly isn't a disqualifier. I'd also like to see episodes that cover major plot landmarks (like, I know Three was exiled for a while? Stuff like that.)

    If anyone has any recs (again, looking for at least one per Doctor-Companion combo, but more is absolutely welcome, especially if there's significant character or relationship development to get a sense of), please let me know!

    Not sure if this recast idea is a hot take...

    But I do stand by it.

    Not only is the visual similarity clear, it's also a great meta-reference to the "Benedict Cumberbatch should play the next Doctor!" idea that was once popular in the early Moffat era. Cumberbatch is too oversaturated to be the Doctor, but I'm down to see him as the Valeyard.

    just watched the official clip of the “Ten Million Years of Absolute Power” speech from Trial of a Time Lord and the comments section is hilarious--it’s half Colin Baker lovefest and half people getting into really pedantic arguments about where the Valeyard fits into New Who

    #yes I had seen the speech before #I just needed the link to the clip #and then I watched it #doctor who#classic who#sixth doctor#the valeyard

    Classic Who Whumptober 2021 #21: Blood-Matted Hair

    Sixth Doctor

    The Doctor’s eyes slowly blinked open. His still body shivered as consciousness returned to him. “What…?” He squeezed his eyes tightly shut for a moment when they registered the sunlight.

    He groaned from a lingering pain in his head. His hands lightly fisted in the tall grass. This time, he controlled his eyes opening, more slowly so they could get used to the sunlight.

    Once that was done, he gingerly sat up. He felt a stickiness on his cheek, and raised a hand to wipe at it. His fingers came away bloody. “Right, yes… Of course…”

    He raised his clean hand to his hair to run his fingers through the blonde curls. He flinched at the same half-dried sticky blood. He kept his fingers in his hair to find the source of it. He flinched at the thin gash along the side of his scalp. “There it is,” he muttered.

    “Mel?” the Doctor shouted out. “Mel?” He sighed. “Not nearby, then.” Not that she would leave him lying on the ground if she had been around. At least, not lying on his front like that.

    The Doctor gathered his feet under him and pushed himself up. He swayed, feeling nauseous at the swift motion. “Take it easy,” he reminded himself. “Head injuries aren’t a trifle to mess with.”

    After taking a moment to recover, he looked around for any hint as to what direction to take. His first priority was to find Mel.

    He spotted a cottage in the distance. “That’ll do, I suppose.”

    A little while later, the Timelord arrived at the cottage. There were signs of it being inhabited, with a cared-for front garden. He knocked on the door.

    “Hello? Anyone there?” He waited a long moment after his second round of knocking. “Guess not.”  

    He went around the cottage to find a way in, and found a window to test. “Well, I hope you don’t mind if I do. I promise I’m not here to steal anything.” He pushed it up and climbed through.

    He quickly found the bathroom and switched on the light. His reflection revealed just how much blood had come from that gash on his head.

    The hair immediately around the wound was almost completely red and matted. As the blood had spread, his hair went from red to dark orange until the spread had stopped. There was also a large amount down his ear and face on that side. His shirt collar hadn’t escaped unscathed, either.

    “What a mess,” he remarked. He looked himself over for any other signs of injury. “Not too bad.” He should get himself cleaned up a little, at least, before continuing on to find Mel.

    He turned on the sink water and filled his hands with the cool liquid. He quickly washed the blood off his face before starting on the more difficult mess that was in his hair.

    It took him a little while, beginning with the spot of the wound and working outwards, but eventually, his now-soaked hair was back to its normal blonde colour.

    “Better. Now I won’t look like a walking horror show to whoever I come across.”

    My one big question about Dimensions in Time is “why the fuck did they make it seem like Susan had no idea what regeneration was.” Like she’s asking Six where her grandfather is and I don’t get it. Wouldn’t she be chill with it? She’s Gallifreyian regenerations probably as normal to them as the average human milestone is to us.

    Okay, but I love Six and I will put these hands up to protect my rainbow-coat-wearing-disaster-that-looks-like-the-universe-vomited-on-him. 

    He’s a bundle of absolute confidence and bad-decision making and it’s hot. I mean, who else would have the guts to call the Time Lords out for being the worst during their own trial? Plus the Valeyard? 𝙷𝚒𝚐𝚑 𝚚𝚞𝚊𝚕𝚒𝚝𝚢 𝚜𝚑𝚒𝚝 𝚛𝚒𝚐𝚑𝚝 𝚝𝚑𝚎𝚛𝚎!™ 

    But, also have you heard his singing?

    If Turlough had stayed for Caves of Androzani (for one thing we'd have no Peri+5 BF audios), the Doctor's final choice would be whether to use the remaining bat milk antidote to save Peri (the girl he barely knows) or Turlough (his sort-of murderous friend). Whichever he picks, one of them dies along with him. And how messed up would the Twin Dilemma have been if the first thing the 6th Doctor had to deal with was the death of his own companion? Unable to cope with the grief and regeneration all at once, that would be a much stronger reason for him to become unstable and turn against his remaining companion.

    It’s time for me to finally finish this challenge that I’m restarting over again anyway since it’s been years. This time I’m doing it for the classic series only. I got this challenge from Amino Apps.

    Classic Doctor Who 30 Day Challenge 

    Day 1 - Favorite Doctor: Four, Six & Eight

    I’m always stuck on these three as my favorite Doctor’s. I honestly can’t just choose one because I love them for each of their individual aspects. 
    Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor because of his eccentricities that just leave people stumped and maybe a bit freaked out... and also the fact that my fiancee looks exactly (and acts) like Four. He even cosplay’s him, so...obviously I have a type. 
    Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor. Honestly, I’ve always loved Six and I only know him from the show, which makes me always wonder why no one liked him in the show to begin with?! Sure, he wasn’t given the best writing and JNT was a dick to him, but Colin was AMAZING and poured his heart and soul into Six. I will always love him and his ridiculous rainbow coat, which is another reason I like him besides his wonderful confidence. <3 I love him, okay. He deserved better and I’m glad he gets to shine in Big Finish Audios.
    Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor. CAN YOU BLAME ME? I was born the same day and year this movie came out in the UK! We share a connection! We share a birthday! (obviously it’s something I’m proud of noting everytime.) So, Eight just means a lot to me okay. It’s personal. He’s like a twin to me. We’ve been going for 25 years yelling about planets, being romantics, and being excited about little things like shoes. I’m glad he gets his chance to shine in Big Finish as well, but I can’t help but wish he had more screen time still. Severely underrated.
