Season 17 of ‘Doctor Who’ with Tom Baker on Blu-ray #2

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

We continue checking out Season 17 of ‘Doctor Who’ on Blu-ray with Tom Baker by taking a look at the second story in the season called ‘City of Death’. This is my second favourite ‘Doctor Who’ story in the entire series (the first of course being ‘Black Orchid’). The story has Paris in 1979; Julian Glover as the villain; a cameo of John Cleese and Eleanor Bron; and an enjoyable comedy-drama plot by Douglas Adams, based on the ideas by David Fisher.

It was lovely to check out this ‘Doctor Who’ story again on Blu-ray. I especially enjoyed watching ‘The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to Douglas Adams’ documentary on the ‘City of Death’ Blu-ray disc as well as the ‘Behind the Sofa’ item on the story featuring Colin Baker, Matthew Waterhouse, Katy Manning, Nicola Bryant, visual effects designer Mat Irvine, costume designer June Hudson and director Graeme Harper.
