Er ... no. Read what I said. There's a very good 'real
world' reason why a book from 1995 an audio from
variously 1986 or 2001 and a TV story from 1988 don't
get a mention in a TV story made in 1982. If
you can come up with a different reason to 'because
they hadn't been made yet, and two of them wouldn't
have video clips anyway', then I'm happy to hear

Correct grammar (which isn't even a guarantee in the BBC books) does
not automatically create a passable story. _The Space Age_ was an
incoherent mess plotwise (note: yes, I'm using blatant hyperbole),
particularly when compared to Lyons' other books. _Matrix_ was painfully
misconceived on almost every level I can think of ("Hey, let's turn the
Doctor into a serial killer, completely absolve him of any blame, and
make it as BORING AS WE POSSIBLY CAN." "Sounds good to me! Any way can
fit in some cat-fetish stuff with Ace?" "Hmm... We'll use that to pad
the book."). Susan is the only character worth reading about in _Legacy
of the Daleks_, as the others are one-dimensional plot drivers.
_Parallel 59_ has an extremely flawed premise ("We've spent 150 pages
making you hate this oppressive totalitarian society; now we want you to
be upset that we're destroying it!") combined with the most unconvincing
character rehabilitation sequence ever to appear in a Doctor Who book
prior to _The Shadows Of Avalon_. And _Divided Loyalties_ was so awful
in every regard that I think Gary Russell should dedicate the rest of his
life to visiting the world's forests and apologizing to the trees for
using the sacrifice of their brethren to foist such unadulterated crap
upon me. If I discovered that my toilet paper contained pulp from
remaindered copies of _Divided Loyalties_, I would take the roll back to
the store and demand my money back. The book was THAT BAD.

All of them, at some point, probably:

The first by mistake ("Hmm, well, I'm terribly sorry Barbara, I don't
know how that could have happened...")

The second as a result of a series of misunderstandings and a failed
escape attempt ("Well, how was I to know they'd pat down a pair of tea

The third just because they went so well with the frilly shirt ("My dear
Lethbridge-Stewart, you really must cease your parochial prattering. Mr.
Yates seems far more open minded about the whole affair, and if you will
go barging in on me unannounced..."

The fourth because Romana bought them for him in a comic
misunderstanding of earth customs ("Mistress Romana has chosen well,
Doctor. They appear to suit you." "Oh, be quiet, K-9!")

The fifth because he jettisoned the underwear room accidentally. ("Ah,
yes, well, thank you Tegan, and I assure you I'll return these as soon
as possible...")

The sixth because of an evil Time Lord plot ("10 million years of
absolute power. That's what it takes to become really kinky...")

The seventh because of the Rani's penchant for playing dress-up during
"Time and the Rani" ("Put him in these, it'll add to his sense of
confusion. If I've got to dress like that ridiculous Mel, at least he
will be similarly discomforted!")

The eighth because of a whim ("Oh! Look look look! Satin!")

For all you know *I* could be posting this from a secret base

volcano. Ok, I'm not, but I'd like to be. I'd even just settle for a

DISCLAIMER The previous post was not meant to imply that
all people with a secret base defended by curvy female
ninjas hidden underneath a volcano are loony megalomaniacs
who want to take over the world. Most are perfectly sane people
conducting geothermal hydroponics experiments or something.
It is only the very, very small minority who are power crazed and
this should not reflect badly on those lovely sane ones who just

I use facts to defend myself against accusations of wrongdoing.
Gosh, I'm evil.

[Re: >> What Tom Baker DVD should the BBC release SECOND?]

There is no choice, is there? I mean really? How can anyone even ask what
story it should be when we all know what the best one is?





Steve Roberts and his gang have restored this acclaimed masterpiece to its
intended glory by carefully re-editing the scenes so that all hints of an
actual plot have been carefully removed to enhance your viewing pleasure.


*Deleted scenes:

- The Nimons' aerobic workout video.

-Tom Baker and Graham Crowden having a staring contest to the death. May
one with the bulgier eyes win.

-A few more utterances of "weakling scum"!

-Lalla Ward grabbing a riding crop and trashing the guys with the chicken

*Never before seen rehearsal footage

-34 minutes of gripping human drama as a grumpy Tom Baker locks himself
inside one of the Nimon pods with a bottle of gin, Lalla Ward trying to
persuade him to come out. After being promised a new set of knit finger
puppets to talk to him and keep him company, he stumbles out and throws up
all over the studio floor. Magic.

- Graham Crowden practicing his "NIIIIIMOOOONNNN!!" bellows, causing
to crumble off the studio walls.

-That Guy Who Keeps Saying "Weakling Scum" doing the classic "you talkin'
me?" de Niro talk in front of a mirror.

Audio commentaries by cast and crew, Graham Crowden on acid, Tom Baker on
mescaline and Lalla Ward being present but not talking for contract

The Ultra Special Edition (only 1000 available) comes with your very own
yellow tracksuit and a pair of platforms. Makes great conversation.

There you go, the final insult. A middle digit actually going up his
arse for all eternity.

It usual recovers from improper shut down.
