Just make certain you cleanse yourself with some classic Who afterward. It helps boost immunity against the next onslaught of trash.

Good Luck Dem.

All the BBC does is push the social change messaging continually, and all people do is switch off. The BBC is totally committed to screwing over a series that actually was a jewel in the crown of BBC TV programming. There's alot of people in denial that still want Dr Who back to the way it was before Moffat started pushing the diversity and inclusion with a female Master added into the mix ( a taster of things to come), but now it's been completely buggered. And now there's another series to come. I'll just sit back and enjoy the decent into more madness. All thanks to Auntie Beeb and the hack writer known as Chibnall. I just pray that you have the stomach to bare this vile insult to Doctor Who from the past Dem.
Don't blame Moffat. Missy was a BBC mandate to pave the way for the castrated Doctor. I suspect Moffat was as against this stuff as anyone else. Apparently they wanted a woman after Smith but Moffat wouldn't do it. But in Chinballs they've found the perfect spineless yes man.

I'll take that bit back iank. You're probably right. Missy certainly was the prototype. It would be nice to think that after Doctor Parody ends next year, the BBC would wipe the slate clean and actually reverse some of the damage done, but I doubt we'll see that. The BBC seems to be on a mission to totally destroy Doctor Who's legacy all for socially engineering the viewers, and in the process, altering the history of the Doctor's background, before Chibnall's time is up. I just hope that Nic Briggs doesn't invite Doctor Parody into the BIG FINISH family. It's far worse than a Shakespeare tragedy.

Speaking of Big Finish. I ordered three Big Finish titles in their recent sale of numbers 100-150. Another of those when they're gone they're gone sales like they did with 1-50 and 51-99 in previous years before the cd versions go OOP forever.

Tom in a 'Keep Australia Beautiful' campaign

I am unsure of the year, but presumably it was around 1979 / 1980

Coming to Big Finish in April.

Torchwood - Tropical Beach Sounds with Sir Michael Palin



You are listening to a self-help tape. You are hearing a soothing voice. You have always wanted to do something with your life, havenít you? Oh, how youíve ached to be a better person. Well now. This is your chance. Go on. Sit back. Close your eyes. Relax. Youíre going to learn all about Captain Jack Harkness. Youíre going to learn all about Torchwood. Youíre going to change the world.

Producer, James Goss, said: ďOur director, Scott Handcock, had the idea of telling a story entirely through a haunted self-help tape, and we immediately suggested it to Tim Foley, the master of the unusual dramatic style (if youíve not heard his podcast, The North West Footwear Database, youíre in for a treat). We were only too delighted when Scott secured the services of a national treasure to play the self-help tape. This really is a release to listen to in a darkened roomĒ. Narrator, Sir Michael Palin, added: ďI donít normally get offered something like this. Iím used to doing The Clangers. It definitely attracted me because thereís an awful lot to it. Itís such a complex piece -from larky-jokey to very, very violent. Itís quite an adventurefor me. ďI didnít do it because it was Torchwood. I havenít seen a lot of it. But I did a bit of research ĖI donít watch much television. Mainly Match Of The Day. I did it because it was a rather fascinating piece of writing.Ē

Well, I watched that last episode. Slightly old school villain squandered I thought. Very bitty in fact. The opening part had a terrible conclusion that seemed like an afterthought .... very poor indeed.
