Yes, very neat; also, whether by accident or design, the terms used in this match up quite well with those used the following season in The Leisure Hive.

2051


What, that mish-mash of badly thought about ideas. Chris H Bidmead was a poor replacement for the genius of Douglas Adams.

Still almost perfect dialogue continuity; besides, the script of Hive wasn't written by Chris Bidmead.

Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

No, it was a decent script by David Fisher (read the novelisation), then butchered by Bidmead.

I didn't think either Bidmead or Saward came along until the Peter Davison era, cause the sonic screwdriver still lives.

Season 17 still had about 10 million viewers even after the strike.

The Leisure Hive and Meglos between them managed to lose half the audience, DW lost its Saturday night slot, and the programme was on a downward slope from then onwards....

Chris Bidmead is still one of my favourite script editors/show runners (or equivalent) on the series, of any era. I'm looking forward to hearing him read his own novel of one of my favourite 80s stories Frontios.

I really liked Meglos as a kid, Leisure Hive too. One of the few happy childhood memories I have. I don't think it really went downhill until the death of the sonic screwdriver.

Chris Bidmead was script editor on Tom Baker's final season.

I don't think you'd think that, had you watched Season 18 as a child. You'd have been as alienated and confused as the rest of us. Doctor Who is supposed to be accessible to children, and JNT & Bidmead forgot this golden rule.

All of it beats the pants off of Star Trek TOS IMHO. Watching reruns of Kirk wooing the babe of the week was never as amusing or fun as Who.

This scene between Tom Baker and Catherine Schell is good, but they don't quite have the same spark without Julian Glover or Tom Chadbon in the room.

That was my favorite season as a kid, along with 17. I maybe felt alienated anyway, being American.

The Countess twigs the truth... I love the Pink Panther music that accompanies her, given that's what she'd been in... Dudley was in inspired form. Grin

I am so glad now that I wasn't around other fans growing up and didn't know these rules.
