When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became an adult…I looked back on childish things and waxed nostalgic on just how awesome it all was. Seriously. Those were the days, you know? Rubber monsters! Machines that went “bing”! The round things!
We spend some time this episode looking at all the elements of “classic” Doctor Who that have been incorporated in some way into the modern (post-2005) series, be it a revisitation, an overt reference, or an extremely clever Easter Egg. We discuss characters, locations, technology, and even dialogue and designs that honor the ‘time that was’, lovingly enjoyed in the ‘time that is’.
EXTRA: We test the waters (pun intended, naturally) of a new game idea for ‘Desert Island Doctors’. Who would be your ‘survivalist’ Doctor?
