Fair enough. So long as the originals are still on there I can't say I mind.

In a way i see it as a bit of an odd choice. I can only presume it's a case of we have a million illustrations of this TARDIS team already so let's see if we can reuse some of them making the whole production both quicker and cheaper.

Getting back, it's an odd choice because as far as i'm aware one of the animators said it was much easier to make say Daleks, seem real as animation than it did people and talking heads, so with The Faceless Ones not being a monster story as such i thought it begged the question.

Maybe they're getting more confident/better at it?
I'm just happy to see more, and while I'm salivating at the prospect of them doing the likes of Evil, Snowmen and Fury, it's nice that, as with Macra, they're not just doing the "big hitters".

Which makes me think they do intend to do all the missing stories sooner rather than later.

Although at one a year it will take some time.

Watching The Sensorites. A fun story. A spaceship (finally)! Psychic Susan! Cuddly aliens! Hartnell holds the attention, just as well as Ian goes aw poorly ...
Might listen to comm later.

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
State Of Decay Part 1
The Doctor: How long ago was that?
Tarak: Years ago. Some of us were on the run from Zargo and his men. We escaped into the wasteland and discovered this, all kinds of wonderful things just thrown about, half hidden. There was even food, mountains of it.
Kalmar: Some of us could still read. It's forbidden, but the knowledge was passed on in secret.
The Doctor: What? Reading forbidden?
Kalmar: All science, all knowledge is forbidden by the Lords. The penalty for knowledge is death.
Romana: No schools of any kind?
Kalmar: Children start in the fields as soon as they can walk, stay there till they grow up, grow old and die.
State Of Decay Part 2
The Doctor: Do you know what that is?
Romana: A feeding system for something that lives on human blood.
The Doctor: Exactly. Come on.
Romana: What is it?
The Doctor: Do you know, it just occurs to me. There are vampire legends on almost every inhabited planet.
Romana: Really?
The Doctor: Yes. Creatures that stalk in the night and feast on the blood of the living. Creatures that fear sunlight and running water and certain herbs. Creatures that are so strong they can only be killed by beheading, or a stake through the heart.
Romana: Or? Please, say something.
The Doctor: Whatever it is, we want to find it, don't we?
Romana: No.
The Doctor: Good. Come on then.
State Of Decay Part 3
The Doctor: Well, I'm glad to catch someone at home. Are we in time for a guided tour?
Aukon: You're a fool to mock, Doctor. There is power here such as you have never dreamed of. Can you not feel it?
(The Doctor wets his finger and holds it up.)
The Doctor: No.
Aukon: Power, Doctor! It is the only reality. Why fight it when you could share it?
The Doctor: Me?
Aukon: When I sent my winged messengers to hunt you down, I sensed the power of your mind. We seek such minds for our great purpose.
The Doctor: What purpose?
Aukon: At the time of Arising, we servants will swarm. You could be one of us.
The Doctor: I could? Well, you know, I've never been a great one for swarming. It's awfully kind of you to offer, but where were you thinking of swarming to?
Aukon: Out of this universe and back to our own.
Romana: You know the way out of E-space?
Aukon: That is the secret of him who brought us here.
The Doctor: Ah ha! So there was a guided tour.
Aukon: We were summoned, the whole ship, to be his servants.
The Doctor: Was that when you were just plain Science Officer O'Connor?
Aukon: What?
Romana: He was O'Connor?
The Doctor: Yes. Those officers aren't the descendants of the originals, they are the originals.
State Of Decay Part 4
Adric: So the vampires in the stories are just pale imitations of the real thing?
Romana: If the Doctor's suspicions are right.
Adric: Oh yes, the Doctor. Is he coming back from the Tardis?
Romana: Well, we were supposed to join him there after we'd rescued you.
Adric: Only you didn't, did you.
Romana: Didn't what?
Adric: Rescue me. Tarak got killed, you got caught, and the Doctor's safely out of it. He can clear off in the Tardis whenever he likes.
Romana: How dare you, Adric!
Adric: It looks as if this is one time the goodies don't win after all. Still, I'm all right, aren't I.
Romana: Oh yes, you are all right. You haven't done so much better yourself. You stow away in our Tardis, you expect us to
Adric: Now look! I've been offered a partnership. Power and eternal life, they said.
Romana: They are vampires, Adric. Do you want to become one of them?
Adric: You said yourself, you're on the menu. If it's a choice between that and joining the diners, I mean, there's no sense in two of us getting the chop.

Its not perfect, it has some legitimate criticisms against it, but I can't understand the level of hatred that Story gets from some corners. Again its far from perfection but is still a good Story. In fact alone as one Story its better than every Story from at least 3 entire Seasons from both old and new Who (for those wondering: Seasons 15, 20 and Series 11).

I cannot comment on that as I have still to see most of JW yet. It's one I will certainly revisit.

Now watching The Keys Of Marinus. I love the novel, so forgive this one quite a bit harumph ...

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
Warriors' Gate Part 1
Romana: Have you got a death wish?
The Doctor: No, I don't think so. Don't you want to get back to Gallifrey?
Romana: You know I don't want to get back to Gallifrey.
The Doctor: Well, we'll burn that bridge when we come to it. It's all academic unless we find the CVE.
Romana: What about Adric?
The Doctor: What about Adric?
Romana: Well, if we get out of E-Space, we'll be taking him away from his own universe.
The Doctor: So?
Romana: Do we have that right?
Warriors' Gate Part 2
Gundan: We are Gundan. We exist to kill. Slaves made the Gundan to kill the brutes who rule.
The Doctor: What particular brutes did you have in mind?
Gundan: The Gundan were sent where no slaves could go. We faced the time winds and we lived. They had only the gateway to flee for safety.
The Doctor: Gateway? Gateway to where?
Gundan: Gateway. Gateway. Gateway.
The Doctor: Gateway to where? Just as it was getting interesting. If only I had an alternative source of energy.
K9: Orders, master. Orders.
The Doctor: K9. Just the chap I wanted.
Warriors' Gate - Part 3
The Doctor: Such variety. Where did it all come from?
Biroc: The universe is our garden.
The Doctor: Ah. So this is what it was all like.
Biroc: At the height of our empire, before the Tharils became the slaves of men.
The Doctor: I notice you don't do too badly for staff. This garden of yours, the universe. How do you manage it?
Biroc: We use our power for those who travel on the time winds. The vastness of space is no obstacle. Everything is ours.
Warriors' Gate Part 4
The Doctor: We've made it. Quick, quick, inside. What's the matter?
Romana: I'm not coming with you.
The Doctor: Inside. That's an order.
Romana: No more orders, Doctor. Goodbye.
The Doctor: What? What a moment to choose.
Romana: But it is, isn't it? A moment to choose. I've got to be my own Romana.
Biroc: And we need a Time Lord.
Romana: Goodbye, Doctor.
The Doctor: No, no, no. Wait, wait. There's something else. K9. He'll be all right with you behind the mirrors.
Romana: I'll take care of him.
The Doctor: I'll miss you. You were the noblest Romana of them all.
