TIME AND THE RANI
OMG! I finally made it through TRIAL. I made it to...THIS! DW survived mismanagement, Eric Saward (who left and left without giving permission to use his already written TRIAL ending, making their be something like three or four endings to this TRIAL), the UNFAIR sacking of Colin, a completely or halfwayly awful season, a slow season before that, its stars appearing in unrelated (to DW) stage plays (Not the ULT ADVENTURE but stuff like Peter Pan?), publicity photos of Colin and Nicola dancing, a cancellation (it was cancelled the first time because sets for another show were not built in time--that's the real reason it was cancelled but then as it was, the BBC folks felt not that enthused about the show and can you blame them? The pace of TWO DOCTORS, not to mention part two of both ATTACK OF THE CYBERMEN and TIMELASH were really awful), and unfortunately the death of Robert Holmes.
We arrived out the other side and we got...THIS! The worst story of DW ever. Maybe my reassessment will prove otherwise but it starts with...have you seen that opening? "Leave the girl, it's the man I want!"
I need a rest first.
