Season 17 of ‘Doctor Who’ with Tom Baker on Blu-ray #5

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

The Nimon be praised! 😀 Yes, it’s time for ‘The Horns of Nimon’, the fifth story featured in Season 17 of ‘Doctor Who’ on Blu-ray with Tom Baker. This ‘Doctor Who’ adventure is by Anthony Read, the previous script editor of the show before Douglas Adams came along. Tom Baker is back as the Fourth Doctor, along with Lalla Ward as Romana and K-9 (voiced by David Brierley). They’re joined by the late Graham Crowden as Soldeed as well as the minotaur-like Nimons.

I’ve enjoyed revisiting this ‘Doctor Who’ story again on Blu-ray, but how much of my thoughts have changed since first seeing it on DVD? I enjoyed watching the ‘Behind the Sofa’ item on the story with Colin Baker, Matthew Waterhouse, Katy Manning, Nicola Bryant, Mat Irvine, June Hudson and Graeme Harper. I also enjoyed revisiting the ‘Read the Writer’ interview with writer Anthony Read as well as the ‘A Matter of Time’ documentary, which looks into the Graham Williams era of ‘Doctor Who’.

Please feel free to check out; read and comment on my updated review for ‘The Horns of Nimon’ by clicking on the link for it. This contains a review on the TV story as well as a review on the Target novelization by Terrance Dicks.
