Since we were doing the Fourth Doctor version of this story, there was no point in cutting away to the other Doctors’ plotlines. One I had more than enough work to do just putting Tom in the story, and Two it was hard enough finding heads for Jon and Pat for the finale, never mind the rest of the story. The other Doctors sections wouldn’t have been different enough to justify their inclusion, whereas we could get lots of “new” material with Tom.
Today we kick off the third and final “issue” of our Telecomic version of The Five Doctors!
The Master, the Doctor’s supposed arch-enemy, shows how rubbish he really is by getting taken out by a single Duggan-style punch from the good old Brig. Clearly poor old Terrance couldn’t think of any more to do with him in the story so he just gets knocked out and tied up. Except in this version he doesn’t get tied up. He just gets forgotten about, wakes up and sneaks off quietly when nobody’s looking…
And so the Fifth Doctor finally turns up, hooray! But minus his question mark shirt collar and his stupid bloody celery…
So is the naming of a #NewCompanion after an old Doctor now officially A Thing???
When Bill eventually leaves the show, will her replacement be named Pat???
It was an nice little introductory scene, and she seems alright. I thought she’d be Coal Hill Courtney all grown up and I’m still disappointed it’s not Miriam Margolyes….
And now that we’ve been introduced to Bill, as far as TV Doctor Who is concerned, that’s your lot until Christmas!
