Classic Who reviews

C033 The Moonbase

C033 The Moonbase

Coffee breaks, national stereotypes and some classic 60s sexism are the cornerstones of this classic Cybermen serial

C032 The Underwater Menace

C032 The Underwater Menace

The lost city of Atlantis, fish people, and a mad scientist who ISN’T The Doctor

C031 The Highlanders

C031 The Highlanders

The Doctor pretends to be German, disguises himself as an old lady and commits fraud in soon-to-be-a-companion Jamie’s first ever serial

C030 The Power of The Daleks

C030 The Power of The Daleks

Multiplying Daleks and surveillance fruit on the planet Vulcan? I’m in.

C029 The Tenth Planet

C029 The Tenth Planet

Cybermen make their first appearance on Doctor Who, and William Hartnell his last (for a while), in this legendary classic serial.

C028 The Smugglers

C028 The Smugglers

The tale of one solitary woman in drag, stuck at an ultra-violent, 17th-century sausage fest while pirates look for hidden booty.

C027 The War Machines

C027 The War Machines

A maniacal, telepathic computer dispatches clunky Dalek-wannabees to enslave mankind. Why? Because shut up, that’s why.

C026 The Savages

C026 The Savages

An allegory about equality acted out by evil guys in blackface and fairly sophisticated cavemen. Also, The Doctor has a vibrator. No lie.

C025 The Gunfighters

C025 The Gunfighters

Two Docs get mixed-up; Steven and Dodo are master pianists; and the whole thing is tied together with the most annoying song in the Wild West.

C024 The Celestial Toymaker

C024 The Celestial Toymaker

The Doctor is turned invisible, inaudible and intangible, and Steve and Dodo clown around in this both childish and completely racist serial.
