I am a huge fan of more recent series of Doctor Who and so it was with some excitement and more than a little trepidation that I ventured back into the archives to try my first taste of Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker's Doctors.

Wow.

At first, I have to admit, I could not stop laughing. Jon Pertwee's era starts out in black and white with plasticine dinosaurs terrorizing London. The dialogue and story line take their time to ramp up, and the acting is far from top notch. I can see why people used to think of Doctor Who as kind of camp. The first episode left me yearning for a complete re-watch of David Tennant's era. I persevered and things got a lot better (or perhaps I stopped being so critical and just enjoyed it for what it was). The second episode of Invasion of the Dinosaurs was in color, which helped a bit too.

By the time I got to Tom Baker's The Android Invasion, I was actually having fun. His Doctor is hilarious, with a ridiculously long scarf and a sense of complete irreverence. I enjoyed having Sarah Jane Smith to tie the two stories together. She had developed a lot as a character by the second story and was well and truly holding her own, even rescuing the Doctor at one point!

The extras are good for those who like behind the scenes type things. I definitely recommend this set to Whovians new and old alike - there is plenty to see and fun to be had in these classic old adventures and, bonus, they make you want to watch all the newer stuff again to connect all the dots.

Product reviews for listing 2902: The Almighty Johnsons - Season 1 -  Type of Show: Comedy Drama series

Product image for The Almighty Johnsons - Season 1The Almighty Johnsons is a comedy-drama series about four brothers who just happen to be descended from Norse Gods. Each of the Johnson boys has his own godlike power; it's just that their powers aren't all that powerful.

The Johnsons are typical Kiwi blokes who don't much like to stand out from the crowd. And everyday gods have everyday struggles - striving to love stroppy women, overcoming sibling rivalry and fulfilling your god-like destiny, all while still finding the time to enjoy a few beers with your mates.
