Three Decades Celebrating Doctor Who sticky icon

1985 was a very different time. The year marks the birth of the Gallifreyan Embassy, but let’s take a TARDIS ride back to see what else was going on at the time.

Speaking of time, it was the year that we discovered the wreak of the RMS Titanic after it was lost in way back in 1912.

My Introduction to Doctor Who

Some of you may know me from recent episodes of Doctor Who: Podshock. While we are quickly manipulating and navigating the vortex that will take us to Series 9, I wanted to introduce myself and discuss how I came to join the Podshock team.

WHO Am I?

For starters, I'm Kyle Jones or @kylemj6977 on Twitter. I work in Human Resources, but am also a writer on my own and several HR related blogs. My TARDIS is parked in Brandon, MS. So, without further delay, I've ripped the last page from a random book to share the following with you.

More-bius; further reflections on an unforgettable Fourth Doctor adventure

I know I talked my head off  (get it?) in PODSHOCK #327 about how much I love THE BRAIN OF MORBIUS, but I'm not through yet. If you're already sick of me talking about it, and why wouldn't you be, really? Then move along -- nothing to see here ...

... Still with me? Oh, good.

I mentioned on #327 how much I appreciated the screenwriting touch, the elegant pathos of having Condo's arm sacrificed to Solon's master work ... and of Condo then seeing the arm and recognising it. I realized later that this is only part of a larger virtue of this script. Where BRAIN OF MORBIUS excels, I think, is in putting sympathetic characters in credible danger. And maybe nowhere is this more striking than in the plot element of Sarah Jane's temporary blindness.

The Tribbles of Morbius

A little tidbit we failed to mention in Doctor Who: Podshock 327 reveiwing 'The Brain of Morbius' was the Tribbles of Morbius (or Dr. Solon).

Happy 10th Anniversary, Rose Tyler

Today is a celebration! Why?  Today is the 10th anniversary of Rose, the episode that brought introduced us to Rose Tyler and brought back Doctor Who.

Happy 10th Anniversary, Rose Tyler

10th Episode of the Doctor Who episode Rose

It had been sixteen years since Doctor Who the airing of a regular episode, and it had been nine years since Sylvester McCoy handed over control of the TARDIS to Paul McGann in the TV movie. On March 26, 2005, something magical happened. The BBC broadcast “Rose” to a UK viewership of 10.81 million. Today, on the episode’s 10th Anniversary, I take a look back on the regeneration of a phenomenon. (Information provided, in part, via Wikipedia.org.)
