The Sixth Doctor Revisited

Just watched BBC America's Sixth Doctor Revisited salute. It was done fairly well, I thought. No mention of the messing hiatus or firing. Lots of talk (and clips) from his first story. Lots of mentions about fixing the chamelion circuit in "Attack of the Cyberman". Also, they talked about Mel quite about when discussing Six's companions. I thought that was a bit odd, Mel was only with him for such a short time. Plus, the only real villians they talked about were Sil from "Vengance at Varos", the Sontarons (which were better with Three and Four) and the Time Lords. Where was the Rani?! Or even the Master lurking as a scarecrow?! Not even a shout-out to the Valeyard!

Otherwise, it was nice to see all the clips and photos and a nice salute by current Who staff.

And there really should be more Six fanfic, so...

A study in purple

I've just completed a pretty extensive research project on the little-known but much-beloved (by me, at least) redesigned version of our Six's costume from the stage play "Doctor Who: The Ultimate Adventure." If you've never seen more than that one photo of the costume that's been floating around for ages, you may find yourself quite surprised by other properties of this strange but fascinating footnote in Who costumery.

Interested? You can find it here on dw-cosplay.
