Tonight comes the first of the BBC specials celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who
BBC America plans to do a doctor a month starting with the 1st Doctor William Hartnell.
After the Special they will show an episode from the Hartnell era. I had expected them to go with the very first Dr. Who episode but instead they are picking my favorite of the Hartnell era The Aztecs.
It is not only one of the best written and best acted of the era, it is the most provocative, at least it’s provocative if you live in 2013.
Watch the episode tonight (10 PM EST) and lets see if you spot the allegory to take with you.
