In which Barbara Wright is revealed to be MADE OF AWESOME, and we have our last proper televised serial before the narrated audio reconstructions start having to be taken into account...

Next time, we get our first missing story (only existing in audio form), and we get our first proper historical (i.e., not involving furry bikinis and raw meat).

Time for another Classic Who post! (Sorry it's been so long since the last one; I meant to finish it over Thanksgiving break, but work has kind of snuck up on me, and also this is a long serial.)

Next time, the TARDIS goes crazy and Barbara makes everyone realize her total awesomeness!

As many of you know, I'm a massive Doctor Who fan. Old, new, I love it all. However, everything pre-2005 I've encountered out of context, as it were; I've skipped around in my viewing, because Classic Who is released on DVD by story rather than by season. So, in order to get the full effect of plot and character development, I've decided to go through the entire series in order, beginning with the first story ("An Unearthly Child").

My rules for this project:
- I'll watch all episodes in order, even those I've already seen.
- Any stories not yet available on DVD, I'll download the VHS rips and watch those. Any that no longer exist in video form (which is unfortunately a decent number of the First Doctor's stories and a massive amount of the Second's, so quite a few early on) I will listen to in audio format and/or watch in reconstruction.
- As I watch, I'll be reading along in the insanely comprehensive About Time series, which basically has everything you might ever possibly need to know about any and all aspects of each Who episode.
- My reactions will basically consist of my thoughts about the story as a whole, a decently short summary, and some minor picspam. I'll be giving a bit more background in this first one, just because I know a lot of folks on my flist may not be all that familiar with Doctor Who in general and/or Classic Who in particular, and this'll give y'all a place to start in case you want to follow this project and find out more about the series!

So, without further ado, back to the beginning!

(For more info on the story, you can check out its Wikipedia entry, and if you'd like to watch the story yourself, it can be found on YouTube; here's a link to the first part of the first episode.)

Next time, The Daleks, featuring the arrival of everyone's favorite pepperpots!
