It’s May Bank Holiday Monday in the UK today! And you probably know what’s coming!
“Mayday, mayday, mayday!”
And yes, we’re back to Bank Holiday Monday this year! Last year, it was Bank Holiday Friday! Which was also my birthday on that day! As well as the 75th anniversary of V.E. Day. (Pause) Anyway, that was the past. Here on the present day, I’m sharing some of my favourite ‘Doctor Who’ reviews again.
In 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic – please keep safe – I enjoyed re-watching the stories featured in the Blu-ray box sets of ‘Doctor Who’ including Season 18 with Tom Baker and Season 19 with Peter Davison. It helped to cheer me up during difficult times and it was fun to revisit these tales.
In 2021, I’ve done it again with revisiting Season 18 and Season 19 of ‘Doctor Who’, starting in the middle of April this year. At this point, I’m probably watching the end of Season 18 with Tom Baker. I hope to build this up by watching Season 19 with Peter Davison in the lead-up to my birthday and beyond in May. I’m very excited! 🙂
Please feel free to check out the links to my reviews on these stories featured in Seasons 18 and 19 of ‘Doctor Who’. In Season 18, there are the stories ‘The Leisure Hive’, ‘Meglos’, ‘Full Circle’, ‘State of Decay’, ‘Warriors’ Gate’, ‘The Keeper of Traken’ and ‘Logopolis’. In Season 19, there are the stories ‘Castrovalva’, ‘Four To Doomsday’, ‘Kinda’, ‘The Visitation’, ‘Black Orchid’, ‘Earthshock’ and ‘Time-Flight’. There’s also the spin-off ‘K-9 & Company: A Girl’s Best Friend’ with Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith and John Leeson as K-9 to check out.
Season 18 of ‘Doctor Who’ stars Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor with Lalla Ward as Romana, John Leeson as K-9, Matthew Waterhouse as Adric, Sarah Sutton as Nyssa and Janet Fielding as Tegan. Season 19 of ‘Doctor Who’ stars Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor with Janet Fielding as Tegan, Sarah Sutton as Nyssa and Matthew Waterhouse as Adric. Season 19 is my favourite season of the lot here.
There are some reviews on the Target novelizations/audiobooks for these stories in Seasons 18 and 19 attached to their pages. There are novelization/audiobook reviews on ‘Full Circle’ by Andrew Smith, ‘State of Decay’ by Terrance Dicks, ‘Warriors’ Gate’ by Stephen Gallagher writing as John Lydecker, ‘The Keeper of Traken’ by Terrance Dicks, ‘Logopolis’ and ‘Castrovalva’ by Christopher H. Bidmead, ‘Four To Doomsday’ and ‘Kinda’ by Terrance Dicks, ‘The Visitation’ by Eric Saward, ‘Black Orchid’ by Terrence Dudley, ‘Earthshock’ by Ian Marter and ‘Time-Flight’ by Peter Grimwade. Some of the novelization reviews by me will be updated soon with brand-new audiobooks including ‘Time-Flight’.
I hope you’ll enjoy checking out my reviews on the Season 18 and 19 stories of ‘Doctor Who’ featured in their unique Blu-ray box sets. There are also Big Finish audios set during Seasons 18 and 19 to check out including ‘Purgatory 12’, ‘Chase the Night’, ‘The Planet of Witches’, ‘The Quest of the Engineer’, ‘Psychodrome’, ‘The Star Men’, ‘Kingdom of Lies’, ‘Iterations of I’ and many more stories!
