Comments on: "Things We Like: The Amazing Technicolor Coat Edition" (4)

  1. I never think of “The Mark of the Rani” as a favorite of mine, but I loved it as a kid, and the more you talked about it, the more I remembered that I liked. My favorite of his era is still probably “The Two Doctors,” largely for the performances, but I agree it’s hard to pick a representative story.

    I’ve heard his relationship with Peri described as having undertones of abusiveness (the strangling and the subsequent bickering), which combined with her tendency to whine, be drooled over, and undergo physical transformations make the whole era a lot more uncomfortable for me now than it was at the time (which is saying something, actually). I got the feeling you four didn’t really make much of that vibe, and I was hoping you’d say something to help me see it in a different light, but if you discussed it much I missed it. Any thoughts?

  2. Also: is “The Mark of the Rani” really out of print? Do you know whether it’s slated for a Special Edition? It never crossed my mind that I might miss out on it.

    • Even out of print DVDs can usually be picked up via Amazon or eBay, and there are other options – it’s on iTunes in Aus, and I watched it recently thanks to my BBC iPlayer subscription… a Special Edition wouldn’t surprise me, though, considering it’s one of the better thought of Colin Baker stories.

      • Oh, of course, iTunes! And there it is, one of two Colin Baker stories in the mix. For now I’m just happy to watch it again. Thanks!
