Classic Rewatch: The Krotons

“All right, there’s no need to shout! Now go away, and don’t fuss me. No, come back. What’s this? It’s all right, I know. Right, fire away. I’m ready.” In a set of episodes that rewards viewers with timeless dialogue (“Oh, my giddy aunt!”), delightfully cold and heartless robotic killing machines, dramatic tension between a partisan populace, and more than a fair share of punches thrown, lasers fired, and chemistry lessons learned, this multifaceted sci-fi story is yet another in the long list […]

Classic Rewatch: The Mind Robber

Let us tell you a story. Once, in a far-off land, many, many years apart from the time we live now, three dear friends went on an adventure.

Wendy Padbury & Frazer Hines: Interview from L.I. Who 3

From the festivities at the third Long Island Doctor Who convention (L.I. Who 3), we were thrilled to chat once […]

A Chat with the Doctor(s)

Long Island Doctor Who arrived during the weekend of the Series 8 finale, and our own Keir Hansen was there to enjoy it with 1,300 other Whovians. (To read his response and reactions to this fantastic convention, click here and live vicariously through him.) But it wasn’t all fun and frivolity. We actually put him to work, and had him interview none other than Frazer Hines, Nicola Bryant, Terrance Dicks, Colin Baker, and Paul McGann. This week, we share those interviews with […]
