Bit of a Who theme to the blog this week, but for UK fans of the classic/old series, it’s a good “set your video” weekend coming up. SciFi is showing the movie Doctor Who and The Daleks at 8.25pm (VIDEO Plus+: 86853041), which featured Peter Cushing as an alternative version of William Hartnell’s first Doctor; on Sunday, the TV movie is on UK Gold at 10.10am (VIDEO Plus+: 26553349) – that’s eighth Doctor Paul McGann’s only outing in the role on TV.
Repeats of the series proper kick off on Wednesday 1st in no particular order with Genesis of the Daleks (VIDEO Plus+: 3097401) from Tom Baker, the fourth Doctor, at 7.25am, Colony in Space (VIDEO Plus+: 72345520) at 7.20am on Saturday and Spearhead from Space (VIDEO Plus+: 98352394) on Sunday at 7am. The latter two are third Doctor stories, Spearhead being Pertwee’s first in the role.
Enjoy, assuming you’re in the UK, have access to UK Gold and haven’t already seen them. And you get up early or can be bothered to set the vid.
