I listened to the first two parts of the reading of Doctor Who and the Daleks on Radio 4 Extra earlier. Very good and brought back memories of hiding behind the sofa on a Saturday evening. William Hartnell's Doctor was such a grumpy old git. :lol:

It's typical that I just bought Protect And Survive last month, and it is now on the radio. :lol:

I listened to the first two parts of that. It wasn't an episode I had even heard before, but I'm really enjoying it.

Blimey! That was excellent. :D

I don't know if everyone will be able to listen to this, but it's available for the next seven days.

It really is! :D

I'm currently listening to the first episode of Doctor Who And The Daleks. Wow, this is a bit different to An Unearthly Child. :lol: I knew beginning of the book was different, but I'd forgotten how different!

It's because they published Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks before anything else in the novelisations. It's an intriguing intro to the series, and certainly the Doctor comes across as being a little less selfish than he was in the TV show (the First Doctor was a selfish prat at first, and it took Barbara taking him down a peg or twenty in The Edge of Destruction to make him more moral).

And that radio stream worked for me. :)

Listening to episode 1 of Fanfare For The Common Men. Not really grabbing me so far. :)

I just finished it! Not as good as the previous one, but pretty good. :)

I actually bought a copy of the CD at Supanova. In fact, I was on the way home when I wondered, "Wouldn't it be funny if the CDs looked like LPs?" When I got home, I opened it up, and was delighted to see that Big Finish had actually done that. Fanfare for the Common Men is on the to-listen list. :)

I started watching a two hour long show called Doctor Who: The Ultimate Guide and gave up after twenty minutes. :doh:

Far from being the ultimate guide, it was just a series of sound bytes by various "famous" people (most of whom I didn't have a clue who they were). Complete and utter drivel for the easily amused and hard of thinking. :naughty:

What I am looking forward to is the documentary on BBC Radio 4 Extra on Saturday. I've heard parts of this already and it is much more what I want to know about. For example, an interview with the daughter of William Hartnell who talks about the letters that her father used to get and how he and his wife used to be sure to answer them all. And the fact that the BBC had originally meant it to be an educational show where they would go into the past to explore historical events and into the future to discuss new technology. The Daleks put paid to that. :lol: They were such a popular enemy that the public demanded more monsters and less education.

Yes, I didn't really expect to learn much new from that 'ultimate guide'. :lol: I watched a bit of it and yeah, lost interest quite quickly.

The radio documentary sounds interesting though. :)

I'm up to episode 8 of that. William Russell does the Dalek voices quite well even though he's not Nick Briggs. :lol:
