Seriously, I want Jamie McCrimmon somehow back. Or Frazer playing the voice of Second Doctor. Or in another role. I want him back!
Guest starring Frazer Hines as Frazer Hines
Guest starring? I want him back at leat as a recurring cast.
Ok how about Frazer Hnes returns as the Master, the Doctor, and Jamie
My parents and my brothers were the Whovians in the family and when I was young I was introduced to the world of Doctor Who through him.
UNFORTUNATELY, it was the movie version of Doctor Who. The 7th Doctor’s death scene and when the 8th Doctor pulls the needle out of his chest really freaked me out and I think I hid my face for the rest of the movie. Then we watched an episode that involved giant maggots or something and I think I screamed and ran from the room. It was not a great first impression.
Fast forward to 2005 when I heard the show was coming back. I was interested/skeptical, but I didn’t have cable so I wasn’t able to watch the show. It took a few years, but I was thrust back into the world of Doctor Who with the 9th Doctor and I was hooked. The fears of my younger self went away and I wanted to watch ALL the Who.
My sister, mother and I have caught up with New Who just before the 50th special and now we have gone back to watch all the episodes, including Recons, of Classic Who. I’m currently on Jon Pertwee’s Doctor. I LOVE it so far. My favorite Doctor is the 2nd, with 9 following in a close second.
Oh and I have since rewatched the movie and it’s not as scary as I remember. If I get to the maggot episode, I’ll have to see what happens. ;)
My advice to any people looking to get into Doctor Who is to start with the 9th Doctor. They do a good job of explaining what’s going on and introduce the main monsters nicely. Then, try out some Classic Who. Sure, it’s paced differently and the SFX may not be as good, but there are so many good stories and people to watch and meet. Who knows, you may find an old favorite. :D
There are sometimes when I really want to put something meaningful on here…but than I see something like this:
And all the good intentions fly out of the window, leaving randomness in it’s place…
Fun fact: Jamie McCrimmon is in more televised episodes than seven different Doctors
