Doctor Who
1x37 A Land of Fear
1x38 Guests of Madame Guillotine
Being parts one and two of The Reign of Terror, released on DVD yesterday. It's been a while since I watched any first Doctor adventures, so I'd forgotten quite how often they go off on tangents for no particular reason. I wonder just how many six-parters are actually four-parters with the odd episode-filling aside thrown in... Still, it's all good fun. And, as the last story of the series' first season, feels particularly season-finale-like, with lots of references to previous adventures and whatnot.

Announcing the cast for Mark Gatiss' birth-of-Doctor-Who drama.

Hartnell was 55 when Doctor Who started; Bradley is 70. Just an observation.
