Oscar vs The 2nd Doctor, No Contest & A Third Doctor Choice

While the rest of the coun­try checks out Todd MacFarlane’s fam­ily guy ver­sion of the Oscars Dr. Who fans in Amer­ica will be tuned to BBC Amer­ica to watch the 2nd Doc­tor Who 50th Anniver­sary Spe­cial fea­tur­ing Patrick Troughton as the 2nd Doctor.

The selec­tion of Tomb of the Cyber­men as tonight’s episode was almost by default. Of the 4 part 2nd Doc­tor Episodes the only other adven­ture that exists in its entirety is the Kro­tons and while that episode has the advan­tage of Zoe rather than Vic­to­ria who was a much longer last­ing com­pan­ion the Kro­tons are such a campy look­ing mon­ster that mod­ern Doc­tor Who fans not famil­iar with the old series would likely rebel.

Next month with Jon Per­twee there will be a lot more flex­i­bil­ity a full Seven Four Part sto­ries are avail­able ( I don’t count the planet of the Dinosaurs as one episode is not in color.) includ­ing two Dalek Sto­ries, 2 Mas­ter Sto­ries and the intro­duc­tion of both Sarah Jane Smith and the Son­tarans in the Time Warrior.

If that episode was not the first Sarah Jane I would sus­pect it would be the one but if I had to bet money I would sup­pose it would the the Claws of Axos.

It fea­tures the Mas­ter and Jo Grant and the Brigadier and is an excel­lent rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the series. Only the Three Doc­tors would be supe­rior but because it was a spe­cial it’s not as fitting.

Do you dis­agree? Tell me, which 3rd Doc­tor 4 part episode would YOU choose if you were BBC Amer­ica to rep­re­sent the five years of his run?

While the rest of the country checks out Todd MacFarlane’s family guy version of the Oscars Dr. Who fans in America will be tuned to BBC America to watch the 2nd Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special featuring Patrick Troughton as the 2nd Doctor.

The selection of Tomb of the Cybermen as tonight’s episode was almost by default. Of the 4 part 2nd Doctor Episodes the only other adventure that exists in its entirety is the Krotons and while that episode has the advantage of Zoe rather than Victoria who was a much longer lasting companion the Krotons are such a campy looking monster that modern Doctor Who fans not familiar with the old series would likely rebel.

Next month with Jon Pertwee there will be a lot more flexibility a full Seven Four Part stories are available ( I don’t count the planet of the Dinosaurs as one episode is not in color.) including two Dalek Stories, 2 Master Stories and the introduction of both Sarah Jane Smith and the Sontarans in the Time Warrior.

If that episode was not the first Sarah Jane I would suspect it would be the one but if I had to bet money I would suppose it would the the Claws of Axos.

It features the Master and Jo Grant and the Brigadier and is an excellent representative of the series. Only the Three Doctors would be superior but because it was a special it’s not as fitting.

Do you disagree? Tell me, which 3rd Doctor 4 part episode would YOU choose if you were BBC America to represent the five years of his run?
