So I finally jumped onto the 50 year old band wagon today. I started watching classic Doctor Who
Congratulations on being New to (Classic) Who!
Retro TV is proud to welcome classic episodes of the science-fiction series Doctor Who, a BBC production distributed by BBC Worldwide North America, to its lineup.
Retro TV will be showcasing the series’ classic run, featuring the first seven incarnations of the Doctor: William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, and Sylvester McCoy.
Matthew Golden, Luken’s Vice President of Production, said, “We couldn’t be more excited to make legendary classic episodes of Doctor Who available nationwide. The series is an institution, and we’re proud to give fans new and old the opportunity to experience this groundbreaking series from the very beginning.”
Doctor Who will make its Retro TV debut this summer. [x]

HARRY: Let’s not make a fuss, Doctor.
DOCTOR: That Time Ring is our only hope of getting back to the TARDIS. Recovering it has got to be our number one priority. Do you understand, Harry? It’s vital.
HARRY: Yes, I know it’s vital, but we don’t want them to know that, do we?

She smoldered with a will to save the world

One of the most delightful discoveries of the past seven days has been the digital archive that British Pathé News has made available for public viewing on YouTube. There’s an astonishing array of footage, serious and silly, and some of it features some familiar faces.
