Comments on: "Extra! – 7 Faves from the 1970s" (2)

  1. I was shocked that only one 4th Doctor/ Sara-Jane story was picked! Thank goodness Genesis of the Daleks made it; 2 others right off the top of my head would include Pyramids of Mars and Seeds of Doom (OMG that chemistry between them!!) My 4th Sara-Jane story would be her and the 3rd Doctor in The Time Warrior. I am all in for Inferno and City of Death.

    My last pick is now very controversial, but I’m still watching Talons of Weng Chiang. I know it would be cast differently now, and I’m black so I get it, but John Bennett made me feel sorry for his magician Chang. Also, there were times he went with the stereotype around white people but knew better (and the Doctor saw through it too). As a minority, I completely understand! What matters most to me is how complex, multidimensional he is. While an Asian actor should have had a chance, I’m happy to see any non-stereotypical character on a BBC show from that time. Finally there’s Jago and Litefoot!! It’s a true pulp story.

    An entire episode devoted to favorites of the ’70s, and not one mention of “Pyramids of Mars”, “The Robots of Death” or “The Talons of Weng-Chiang”??? Okay, admittedly, “Talons” gets harder to watch as the years go by, but it’s still a cracking story with Jago and Litefoot. “Robots” may be a by-the-books murder mystery, but they did it with a terrific cast and really, really stylish design. And “Pyramids” is still terrific, even if part four is a bit rushed.
