    While I was exposed to Doctor Who via PBS reruns in the 1980s (giving me the mistaken impression that Tom baker was the ONLY Doctor), it was the comic books that really made me a fan. Of course, this was before 1996. I was one of the few that watch “The Movie,” enjoyed it enough to record it, and then spent the next several years as a fan…

    It was the Movie that inspired me to get David Howe (and CO)’s excellent book “The Seventies” and then “The Eighties.” In many ways, McGann is my first Doctor, and I judged the new series based on what I had seen…

    Bring back McGann for the Fiftieth!

    • Fascinating! I love how so many different people have completely different stories about how they got into Who. I love hearing them.

      And I completely agree! I’d love to see McGann for the 50th!

    Thanks for the heads up on the bargain Mary Shelley audio. I find the Big Finish site very confusing (!) but that led me to some I had not even come across.
