Doctor Who - Series Seven on Target

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 14/06/2021 - 9:04pm in

 A bumper crop here for what became the 50th anniversary series. 

To a certain degree, it was two series. The first five episodes aired in late 2012 and saw the departure of Amy and Rory. This led into a Christmas special that introduced for a second time, the new companion Clara. The series returned in Easter 2013 with another introduction for Clara whom this time, we were assured was safe and not liable to die for at least the rest of the series. This run of eight episodes climaxed with the revelation of the retrospectively named 'War Doctor' played by Sir John Hurt. This in turn was followed by the anniversary special in November which in turn was followed a month later by another Christmas special which bade farewell to Matt Smith. 

We never had it so good!

The second batch of eight contained some of my favourite eleventh Doctor stories, 'Cold War', 'Hide' and 'The Crimson Horror' were all high points with the only low point being the disappointing 'Nightmare in Silver', which despite being written by the great Neil Gaiman, felt like a remix of old ideas with some superficial re-colouring. The new Cybermen were cool though. Their looked smoother and more streamlined than the more robotic Cybus versions. It's just a pity they still had that clanky stiff sound effect every time they took a step. 

Here they are anyway. And don't worry, I've no After Party to follow this post.

Doctor Who - Series Five on Target

Back to catching up with my faux Target covers. 

A few months ago, for some reason known only to my raddled subconscious, I ended up doing 70s style Target covers for the current run of Doctor Who series-by-series... but in reverse. This meant I started with series ten and worked my way back to series five. Thus if you accept the fact that one gets better and better, the more you perform a task, then these selections of Target book covers will get progressively worse as I'm post them in series order beginning with Matt Smith's debut series. 

I liked Matt's debut series but not as much as series seven and certainly more than series six. I hope this shows with this selection. 

Particularly pleased with the one for Amy's Choice. This really was a great example of Doctor Who doing a unique standalone tale which needs no introduction or follow-up. It's got a beginning, a middle and an end... And that's it. No necessity for a prequel or a sequel. No need for Toby Jones' Doctor to return as a villain in a Big Finish spin-off set in a dreamscape where he traps a different character from the Doctor's past every episode... The story is a nice enclosed little tale of its own. I'm surprised Simon Nye didn't write at least another script for the series but there you go. 

Anyway, here goes...
