    That was a pretty good episode I thought.

    I should also have mentioned that he had a lot of companions, at least eight.

    I think that Sarah was the only companion to have been a companion to three different Doctors.

    I think Sarah Jane was in more than one Doctor Who story with David Tennant. And Tennant was a guest on her tv series too.

    The other Tennant story was The Stolen Earth / Journey's End which had a lot of Tardis guests on it.

    My man, Tom Baker! The greatest Doctor of them all. I have to admit though, that I fell asleep halfway through the Pyramids of Mars broadcast. This episode like a lot of classic Doctor Who episodes I've been watching has about one segment too many, where nothing much happens to deserve the extra 20 minutes.

    They only had segments for Sara Jane, Leela and K9. Looks like Teagen, Nyssa and Adrick will be on the next Doctor's special.

    But what about Romana?!?

    WILL NOBODY THINK ABOUT ROMANA?!?!?

    (If I haven't already, remind me to tell my story about meeting Sarah "Nyssa" Sutton.)

    At least they showed Romana II in a brief film clip. No Romana I. I wonder if the companions will rate a bigger, more thorough part on the inevitable dvd.

    Would that be Romana I or Romana II? I liked them both, and Romana II was a special of Tom's, of course. Since they stopped after Leela, I can only hope that they will feature the other companions in a future special.

    I was just the right age when I saw these to be in love with Elisabeth Sladen, Louise Jameson, Mary Tamm AND Lalla Ward. :D

    Unfortunately, the next special is Peter Davison...unless they figure Baker's tenure was worth two!

    I'm aware that the next one SHOULD be Davison, but given the time that Tom played The Doctor, this special, while good, really didn't do him justice--based on the time he spent playing the role. I didn't plan these specials though, so they can do whatever they want with them.

    Sladen sure was a cutie!

    How are they going to do a special about Paul McGann? Or, for that matter, show an "episode," since I question if BBC America has rights to the TV movie in the states.

    My guess is that BBC America will do a revisit with Paul McGann, simply because they include him in their ads.

    They don't include anything about Peter Cushing...at least not that I've noticed. So I doubt they're mentioning his work... But I could be wrong.

    The Baker Doctor Who is the first one I was ever really aware of. I had seen an old movie on TV with the Third Doctor but after that I had no access to Doctor who until BBCA started showing it. What little I saw looked pretty lame due to low budget special effects. The two newer doctors on BBCA were very good. The three episodes I have seen on the first three Doctors were fairly lame though the one about the plastic people was pretty good. (The main reason I was aware of the Baker Doctor was Doctor Who fans at SF conventions. I am guessing that they had PAL capable VCRs and getting the episodes sent to them. I never found a TV station showing it.)

    I don't think they are considering the non-BBC "Dr. Who" works to be part of the main canon.

    Cushing is not. Those movies were remakes of Hartnell stories with lots of details changed. Mcgann is canon.

    They claim they are doing all 11. Who says they can't get the rights to the movie? At least for one showing.

    Yeah, that's why I clarified "non-BBC" works. The TV movie was an official BBC co-production along with FOX.

    That last part is why I wasn't sure if BBC America could get rights, as they might be still owned by FOX, at least for US airings. (It is also possible that they've allowed to be able to return to BBC exclusively, and therefore might be included in the Doctor Who television package. I dunno either way.)

    FWIW, the American DVD of the McGann movie was released by the BBC through Warner...no Fox anywhere on the box (including the rather lengthy copyright notice, which is all BBC).

    Anyone know where I can watch The Dr Revisited for Tom Baker the 4th Dr? I missed it and the only thing I found on BBCA is the first half hour of it before the full special on the 5th Dr. I assume it will have most of the back story stuff but none of the full episode which I think was the Pyramids of Mars which I would have liked to have seen.

    No comments yet about the Peter Davison episode of the Doctors Revisited? It has been four days!

    I thought Earthshock was an odd episode to show since they had already featured the Cybermen in the Patrick Troughton episode, and they have yet to feature a Dalek episode. Overall, I was rather happy with this one. Since Davison was my least favorite Doctor, I expected to not like it.

    ...poor Adric. I remember that they did not have the closing Doctor Who theme at the end of Earthshock, just silent credits in honor of his sacrifice.
