DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming November 24th

Our tour through the introductory stories of past Doctors leads us to 1987, and the beginning of the 7th Doctor’s era…in a story that is one of the most outrageous in all of classic “Doctor Who” history: TIME AND THE RANI.  It certainly makes for a wild baptism of fire for Sylvester McCoy, who returns the Doctor to being a more archetypal, mischievous imp; akin to being Loki’s little brother…a child-like magician and performer with a dark streak that would slowly reveal itself over time.  He’s pitted against the returning Kate O’Mara as the Rani: an amoral Time Lady scientist in full 1980s Dynasty mode.  The dawn of a new Doctor, the dawn of the CGI effects age, and the first glimpse of elements of “Doctor Who” in the 21st century seeping into the DNA of the program.  Complemented by incidental music memorably described as “the day of judgement, as scored by Afrika Bambaata“, this is the start of one trippy ride…
