So, was Doctor Who rubbish in the 1980's???
Interesting piece on the BBC news website, tied in with a Newsnight item.
Nice interview with Sylvester, and sage words on the effects from Andrew Cartmel. I don't have HD, so was quite shocked at just how rubbery the Destroyer was when I watched this piece on-line.
Was the programme rubbish in the '80's? I think "fun" would be a more apposite epithet.
Yes, if I was stuck on a desert island and could only take one decade of classic Doctor Who with me, it would be the 1970's first (Pertwee & Tom Baker, Sarah Jane Smith & Jo Grant, Delgado's Master and the Brigadier); the 1960's second (Hartnell & Troughton, Ian & Barbara, Jamie and decent Cybermen); with the 1980's bringing up the rear.
The JNT years: they were the best of times, they were the worst of times...
