I’ve been trying to catch up on classic Doctor Who, but it’s been rather difficult. Part of the problem is that I can’t find all of the old episodes on Netflix for streaming, but mostly it’s because the Queen B can’t stand the cheesy look of it*, and feels compelled to inform me of it every few minutes. “Oh look. The TARDIS landed on yet another planet made of styrofoam rocks.”
* Although, to be fair, classic Who does very often look cheesy. For example, the City of Death story, despite being one of my favorites, looks terrible, from the crappy “time-shift” visual effects to the goofy mask for the alien Scaroth to the make-shift time machine that looks just like Doffenshmirtz’s Mountain-out-of-a-mole-hill-inator from Phineas and Ferb:
Or that Scaroth’s ship looks just like Syndrome’s Omnidroid from the Incredibles:
Who knew Disney stole all their stuff from BBC?
Fortunately for TARDs like me, Babelcolour has taken every episode of Doctor Who over its fifty year run and compressed them into ten minutes. Behold:
Of course, if that went by a bit too fast for you, here’s a handy-dandy (or is that timey-wimey?) guide to help you. It will also probably take you ten minutes to scroll through. Enjoy.
P.S. Does anyone know where you can watch classic Who online?
