Review's Roundup...

Armillary Observations has Prosecution: The Web Planet–early Who’s Weakest Hour. So what do you need to know about Who’s 13th serial, The Web Planet? Well, primarily the three reasons it’s so bad. It’s well worth a watch if you’re a completionist as I am–there are interesting concepts explored, and some pushing of technical boundaries in making a 1965 BBC sci-fi serial. But these interesting concepts ultimately, as you’ll see, fail. In any case, watch it or no, you’ll be well suited knowing these three things about Web Planet, and moving on to the far superior 14th serial, The Crusade. And in no particular order, here are the three things you need to know....

Classical Gallifrey has Serial 22: The Massacre of St. Bartholomew's Eve. "The Massacre" is one of the most unique Doctor Who stories ever, despite the fact that on the surface it doesn't seem to be doing anything revelatory or special. Part of this is down to the fact that we have John Lucarotti on the typewriter once again. For those not in the remember, this is the guy who "created" the historical (if you assume that "An Unearthly Child" wasn't so much a historical as a story that just happened to take place in he generic past rather than being a "true" historical) when he did "Marco Polo" and followed it up with "The Aztecs"....

Tachyon TV has The One That Got Away. It’s appropriate that so much of Shada is concerned with the power and significance of an ancient book, as Douglas Adams’ original has itself become a kind of palimpsest, with layer upon layer of new material being added but with the original material still visible underneath. Over the years since the television production was scrapped partway through filming, there have been a number of attempts to complete the work, all of them adding new material, until what we understand when people discuss Shada is so much more than the 70 minutes or so of footage that was actually completed....

TEGAN has Dr. Who (The Early Years) - Part 64 "The Two Doctors". The Doctor and Jamie have temporarily departed from Victoria as they set out on a mission from the Timelords. Detecting dangerous time experiments, the Timelords have unofficially sent the Doctor to see what he can do to halt the experiments. The Doctor hopes it's a mission that'll go over easy....
