Doctor Who has always traveled into the past, but pure historicals — without any SF or fantasy content — disappeared after 1966. Then, in 1982, during Peter Davison’s first season as the 5th Doctor, the pure historical returned with BLACK ORCHID. As summer approaches, it’s the perfect episode: an Agatha Christie-style murder mystery, featuring a country estate, a cricket match, a masquerade ball, cocktails and dancing. It’s one of those moments to remember that Doctor Who works just as well on the small scale as it does when it’s epic and intergalactic. There’s even a doubles/mistaken identity storyline to add some extra spice. This week, join us as the TARDIS travels back to 1925…with a vintage chauffeured car ready and waiting for the Doctor & his companions.
