    My Thanksgiving Quest Views: 1745
     Thursday, November 22 2007 @ 04:21 PM EST
    When I go to my parents' house this afternoon, I plan on digging around in the attic to see if I can track down this little beauty I got many, many years ago.

    Doctor Who - The Game of Time and Space



    As one of the many incarnations of the Doctor, you can experience the excitement of a hunt across space for the Key of Time. En route you will meet old enemies like the Daleks and Cybermen - and many new ones. You are racing to collect your combination of the Key of Chronos and return to a hero's welcome on Gallifrey. Not only must you contend with the inhabitants of the many planets you will discover, but also with the threat from other Doctors, all intent on getting their Keys home. To help you in this mission are many artifacts ranging from the Tardis to the legendary Jelly Babies. Everything combines to give a fast, furious and fun game as you tread boldly where no Time Lord has gone before.

    I'm going "Full Circle" and putting my avatar back to what it was when I first joined. :)

    I have this...

    But not in my attic. In fact, I see it everyday as I have it on a shelf in my bedroom. The box serves as illustration piece of the fourth Doctor with the obligatory Daleks included. So it is more for decorative purposes than anything else. I don't think it was actually ever played... I am sure it remains in mint condition.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    That's one reason I wish I could find it. It's pretty cool looking. But I'm also much more into boardgaming now and I'd like to try playing it, too. So far my quest has been unsuccessful. I didn't find the game yet. But I did find this. I have no idea how old I was when I made it.

    Somewhere up in the attic is something else I made that I'll have to keep an eye out for. I made a similar ceramic piece in art class that's the diamond logo from the Tom Baker era. Apparently I liked art class. A non-Who related one I found was for the arcade game Battlezone (the "#1 Atari Game" according to the piece). My sister, who is a teacher, says they don't have art class like that anymore. If that's true, it's a shame.

    Wow, memories. I did some artwork as well. I created a ceramic Doctor Who logo from the Davidson era (neon logo). I think one of my siblings ended up dropping it and it broke. I also made a cardboard tardis, taped together with masking tape, then spray painted blue. As I recall I ended up leaving that at a friends house I (ironically enough) never saw again. The only bit of Doctor Who related items from my past that still remains is a newsletter for a club my friend and I started. I'll have to see if I can track that down and scan it.

    I didn't find the game yet. I'm going back for leftovers tomorrow and will look some more. I did find the ceramic TARDIS I made about 25 years ago, though, picture posted above.

    Well, my primary quest was a failure. I wasn't able to find the board game Doctor Who: The Game of Time and Space. I hope it's still at my parents' house somewhere. I'll have to spend a Saturday afternoon lugging boxes out of the attic and going through them and sorting them properly.

    But, I did find some additional stuff. In addition to the ceramic TARDIS I posted about Thursday, I found the following two items today...

    A Doctor Who ashtray with classic Tom Baker-era logo that I made. Although, it strikes me as odd that they would let grade-school children make ashtrays. It even has the little half-moon gaps at the compass points to rest your cigarette in.

    And on the sides in between the cigarette rests, a repeating decorative detail featuring the TARDIS and some Daleks.

    And I also found my laminated poster of the Five Doctors artwork by Andrew Skilleter. I don't remember where I got this, but it's still in really good shape.

    So the game quest will have to wait for another weekend, unfortunately. I remain optimistic. I can't imagine it was thrown out or sold at a garage sale.

    There was a whole series of these. I had the one depicting The Five Doctors, but there were others including one for K-9, Davros, The Master, one of each Doctor (at the time), etc.

    I had them all up in my bedroom back in the day. I still have them stored away somewhere now.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    Here's a picture of my bedroom back in the early- to mid-80s. Note the one poster of the 5th Doctor, Tegan, and Turlough...and on the closet above Bogart is a poster of the 4th Doctor with "The Doctor Lives". On one of the other walls I had one of the 5th Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa, and Adric. Nyssa was second in my Who-girl crushes after Sarah Jane and just before Leela. Theoretically those posters are still around somewhere, but I'm not optimistic.

    (I've blurred out my friends' faces...and the one on the left has his shirt stuffed to pretend to be as overweight as the one on the right...he was really a rail...we just had our 20-year highschool reunion and he doesn't need to pretend anymore Twisted Evil. On the left is my combination radio/phonograph/cassette/8-track player...was I cool or what?)

    You had 8 tracks on your hi-fis Stateside? They were quite unusual here in any form, and certainly not on in house music centres!

    My mum's best friend had a bloke who used to drive around in big American cars. He had a player in one I remember, & that's the only time I think I've ever seen one. Everyone at school used to be so jealous when I used to roll up in this big old Mustang type thing - with Elvis on the 8 track!

    I remember growing up with an 8-track in the car. As far as I can recall, we had the Fifth Dimension, Jim Croce and Chicago as 8-Tracks for playing. He also had one named 'funny bones' that us kids loved.

    Here we go again... Sorry to sound like a broken record (but not an 8-track), yeah, I have that same poster of 5th Doctor with Tegan and Turlough in the white mist... I can't recall if I have the 4th Doctor poster seen in your photo though... I may have it, but never had it displayed perhaps... I don't know, I will have to research it (find it in my collection in storage).

    If it matters, I too had a stereo with an 8-track cassette player... but I only had a couple 8-Track cassettes (as I recall, just a couple Star Wars soundtracks... which I had only being a collector as I listened to them on vinyl more than I ever did on 8-track.

    Cheers,
    Louis
