Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

More favourites! Join Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we dip into the 1960s and agonize over our favourite seven stories. This was painful, but nothing was more painful than when one of Erika’s picks seriously broke Liz. Liz has broken more than once on Verity!, but this may bring it to a new level.

What are your 7 faves from the 60s? And did Erika break you too? Let us know in the comments!

    Two that I was surprised not to make anyone’s lists were “Tomb of the Cyberman” (although, like “The Web of Fear”, its reputation did sink a bit after it was recovered) and “An Unearthly Child”—not the whole caveman bit, just the single first episode. That is still, in my opinion, one of the greatest episodes “Doctor Who” has ever done.

      Tomb of the Cybermen suffers from modern revisionism and “omg the only black man is mute” fannish melodrama – rather than acknowledging the rare casting of an actor of colour, in an era of usually all-white casting in the later 60s, as a positive step.

      I like the Tomb of the Cybermen, although my absolute favourite B&W story is The Meddling Monk. So much of what has become Gallifreyan identity can be traced to that story, and its an interesting mix of campy adventure and very honest social history
