Hello! Once again, I offer a plea not to leave Mem all alone in the chat for the watchalong this week! It's the last First Doctor serial we'll be watching as a com (or by myself), since The Tenth Planet is a recon. I'll be starting in a few minutes, so please come and join me!
[personal profile] dragonofmemory
Hey, all. It's that time again, and no one else has posted about it. Come join me in the chat for The Gunfighters. I guess I'll start in about ten minutes or so. Hopefully someone will drop by so that Mem won't be by her lonesome.

This Sunday at 8 PM BST, we will be watching The Ark. This episode features the first Doctor, Steven Taylor and Dodo Chaplet - oh, what's that? Who's Dodo, you say, and where did Vicki go? WELL. It is my unfortunate duty to inform you that all five of the opening stories of series 3 (no, not the one with crazy Simm!Master and Martha, that was series 29) have been subjected to eternal burnination barring some unchecked basements in Hong Kong. In memory of those those lost to the BBC’s 70s tape-saving policy, let us have a short (and extremely uneven, sorry, I’m new at this) recap.

Here lie Galaxy Four, Mission to the Unknown, The Myth Makers, The Daleks' Master Plan, and The Massacre - spoilers and slightly large pictures follow )

And that brings us, at long last, to a story intact - THE ARK!
Photobucket

The first Doctor, Steven, and Dodo arrive on an ark - an actual space ark, for the saving of mankind, earth animals, and Monoids (pictured above). Soon all are threatened by a combination of classism and the common cold.

Please join us Sunday, 8 PM BST to watch the next story of an exciting era of Who’s history. Those of you who are familiar with it, feel free to comment with the no doubt endless reasons why it must be seen, or with fond remembrances of the five burninated stories above. Or, uh, what they may have to do with the Master...? I feel so off-topic right now.

OH WELL, [livejournal.com profile] x_los TOLD ME I COULD

Hope to see you on Sunday!

So... it's that time again.  In about ten minutes or so, I'll be starting The Chase to continue the Watchalong of Time and Spa.  Come join Mem in the chat so she's not a sad little panda? I think this is the last serial for Barbara and Ian, so I really will be a sad panda this time, regardless of people being there or not, but it's more fun when there's someone else in there with me.  Hopefully I'll see someone there!

If anyone's around to watch The Space Museum - assuming my calculations are correct and that is indeed what is next on the schedule for Ultimate Watchalong All of Time and Spa - I will be in the chatroom from five minutes ago until, er, until such time as I see fit, hoping someone will come along and watch with me. I may begin even if alone (my brandy alexander will keep me company), but I will gladly start over if any Actual People show -

OH LOOK ONE ACTUAL PERSON. I guess the watchalong is a go for at least us, then. If any of you would care to join us, we'll wait until about half-past the hour (8:00 BST) to begin. Hope to see you there!

Mods, please feel free to create an actual post for this if you see fit.

PS: Has anyone seen this? I think it may be Relevant to Our Interests - it's a forthcoming past Doctor adventure featuring the third Doctor, the Master, and no other mentioned companions. "[S]et on both 20th century Earth and far into the future, it will see the duo battling to save the universe – and facing the ultimate moral crisis." Sounds like a recipe for goodness to me.
EDIT: [livejournal.com profile] x_los has informed me that the book does have Jo in it, actually, which is fine by me. Expanded article with added giant-squid-flavor illustration of the Nestene consciousness here!

Sorry guys, this is late, and from me, rather than Erin (although the message is from her).

Hope you enjoy it (this is actually a really good episode that I like a lot, which sees the departure of Susan, so is important).

'The Sensorites' becomes relevant in Ten era because the Ood resemble the titular species, and are stated to be genetically related to them. More importantly in terms of overall canon, Susan demonstrates telepathic powers in this serial, making this the show's first instance of psychic!TLs. One is surprised to find Susan's a good deal more psychic than he is. Good genes on the Master's side, I guess...

Rain Date showing of the Aztecs tonight at 8:30 pm BST, in accordance with the poll results (and moved back half an hour because Aztecs is so blessedly short, for once in our classic-era lives). Be there or face Barbara's Bitch Please face. It is indeed terrible to behold.

ROUND UP
 
(you can be a bit late, like this in your responses, fyi--no one's judging, it's still relevant/interesting)
 
 
I REALLY urge you to watch The Aztecs. It's ONLY FOUR PARTS--so a neat, tidy serial, compared to some of the 7-part epics we've been watching. It's very well written, with a great setting, and some well-crafted minor characters. Barbara is at her *best* here, and it's an intriguing episode for thinking about time travel, moral responsibility, and history, and how these work in Who. If you liked, for example, Fires of Pompeii, I'd say this is similar but better? And my GOD the Aztec costumes can be visually interesting!

* The end of the Marco... (I am waiting for you to finish, guys) watchalong will be TONIGHT at 8PM BST, as decided by le Poll-o . BE THERE OR NEVER SEE ONE SAVE HIS OWN ASS BY WHINGING ABOUT GOUT!! (I hear it is quite a sight to see.)
 
* SIXABRATION!!!! Get so excited.
 
* Recently we've had some kinda dubious anon meme posts. The prompts in question are fine; some prompts are responses to others, and you're allowed to have opinions. But exercise best judgement/play well with others. Don't diss other people's prompts when you make yours. You may be anon, but this ain't who_anon. Not everything's gonna be your cuppa. It would be nice if we could avoid  'your choices are invalid, this character is this way' in the future.
 
BUT: prompts are good things to get, and thanks for all the prompts and all the responses recently. Some of them are not my cuppa, but that is cool--there are enough cuppas to go around, and I have come to terms with Cumberbatch!Master and will no longer make sulky anon meme posts about the meme (METAMEME!!). #campaignpromise #leadingbyexample #beinglessofatool

For the first few months of the Epic Sunday Watchalong, where we are missing a serial, we are only missing one at a time. Later, whole huge runs, like 5 serials in a row, are absent. It seems most prudent to have different policies for these two different problems, and to cross the bridge of what amounts to whole missing seasons when we come to it, in a way that best fits interested people's situations at that time. For the missing single episodes, I would prefer to have a consistent policy. With that in mind, what time works best for doing the reconstructions/audio listenalongs?[Poll #1747241]

I will do a round-up of the work before the next watch-along. Last week's is temporarily delayed so it can go with any other work produced for The Daleks this week. <3
