Hi all! Only a couple of days to go before our first live show episode becomes available – and so we’re getting in just in time to give you a list of viewing for the First Doctor and the theme of Authority, as requested by a few people on our Facebook page. (We’re nothing if not responsive to your suggestions.)
For the First Doctor, we’d suggest the following three stories for a taste:
- An Unearthly Child (though we won’t mind too much if you skip the last three episodes, aka “Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Cavemen!”)
- The Time Meddler
- The War Machines
As an extra post-recording bonus, you may also wish to watch the stories we most talk about: The Aztecs, The Keys of Marinus, The Romans and The Gunfighters. Oh, and special extra credit for watching The Tenth Planet – though if you have a copy of that final episode, please do share it with the world, won’t you?
For the theme of “Authority”, our five picks are:
- Day Of The Daleks (Jon Pertwee, 1972)
- Genesis Of The Daleks (Tom Baker, 1975)
- Snakedance (Peter Davison, 1983)
- The Waters Of Mars (David Tennant, 2009)
- The Pandorica Opens (Matt Smith, 2010)
Keeping these lists to just five is killing us, but really, we can’t ask you to watch more than that. Let us know what other stories you think fit the theme in the comments!
