One again we’ve been so busy we almost forgot to deliver a text version of the viewing list! You still have four days until Eleven/Future, though, so here’s your homework viewing for the last of our regular Doctor/Theme episodes, which will be recorded on November 21st at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne (full show details here). Also, a quick reminder that this show is sold out – sorry if you didn’t manage to get a ticket! But it will be released, by hook or by crook, on the Day of the Doctor, November 23! (Good luck John!)
Your homework viewing for Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor is:
- The Eleventh Hour
- Vincent and the Doctor
- The Girl Who Waited
If you’ve never seen Matt Smith’s Doctor before, we realise you might miss a few things, but don’t worry – these episodes mostly work on their own!
To experience THE FUTURE! as envisioned by Doctor Who, we suggest:
- The Enemy of the World (Patrick Troughton, 1967-68; six episodes) 1
- Day of the Daleks (Jon Pertwee, 1972, four episodes)
- Frontios (Peter Davison, 1984; four episodes)
- The End of the World (Christopher Eccleston, 2005; one episode)
- Utopia (David Tennant, 2007, one episode)
There are plenty of others, of course, including The Tenth Planet, Invasion, arguably the entire UNIT era 2, most of Tom Baker’s first season – The Ark in Space, The Sontaran Experiment and Revenge of the Cybermen – The Robots of Death, The Invisible Enemy, Kinda, Snakedance, Terminus, Vengeance on Varos, The Mysterious Planet and Terror of the Vervoids (from Trial of a Time Lord), Paradise Towers, Dragonfire, The Happiness Patrol, Battlefield, Survival, Dalek, Fear Her, The Beast Below and The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood.
But we’re sure you have your own suggestions – so let us know in the comments!
