Say what you want about the 2005 revival of Doctor Who, but at least we’ve come a long way. We might pick apart the show’s treatment of its female characters to death, but nowadays they’re given some agency and treated like people; they’re not just there to scream and play damsels in distress anymore, like in the classic series.
Okay, just a quick psa: if I ever tell you I’ll do something for you (write/draw you something, send you something etc.) and a period of time passes in which I have not done said thing and don’t bring it up in conversation, please don’t hesitate to remind me. There is a 99% chance I’ve completely forgotten all about it.
I noticed a ton of people starting/asking about Classic Who after Series 7’s finale aired, so I figured I’d put something together to help the newbies out! Reblog to share the retro sci-fi love.
PRAISE OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR HINONEKO
I’m overjoyed so many people want to watch the older episodes!
Tip as well: If you want to buy the DVDs, try eBay. A LOT of serials have special edition versions out now, which means the regular editions can often be picked up for $10-$12 and sometimes even less. Shorter episodes tend to be cheaper, too. For example: Black Orchid cost me about $7 with shipping. Same with King’s Demons.
I wonder what Clara’s Gallifreyan name was.
