What can one say about CITY OF DEATH, one of the most sublime & witty creations to ever grace the screen, under the title of DOCTOR WHO? Douglas Adams — the most famous of science fiction & comedy writers, serving as script editor of the 1979-1980 season — faced a conundrum of epic proportions. With a storyline unfinished, and production deadlines looming, the producer locked him away for a three-day weekend with a typewriter, a bottle of scotch, and endless pots of coffee. The result of this literary binge was a gorgeous romp through the streets of Paris, Tom Baker’s 4th Doctor at the apex of his powers, and a supporting cast worthy of several Emmy awards. This was classic DOCTOR WHO in 1979…and remains so in 2018. It might have gone out under a pseudonym, but make no mistake: the author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is responsible for this comedic, operatic piece of joy. Exquisite. Absolutely…exquisite.
