We didn't even bother recording
the most recent season.
There were signs that finally something was making sense in what I have
seen of the last season. In season eight some of the explanations were
simply not explained. However the latest assistants were not terribly
Only ever liked Rose and Captain Jack, but not Torchwood at all. That
was rubbish. I suppose Donna was ok. That's of the modern ones. I
remember not liking some of the assistants of the old ones too. Some
were Wet. Perri. But then my Dr was the first, with Susan.
Pertwee was mine. Of the old assistants, I liked Tegan - but knew she
wouldn't last, because she was (of the old ones) the only one with some
fire of her own, who didn't say "what do we do now, doctor?". (That's
_why_ I liked her.) And of course I was the right age to like (if that's
the right word) Louise Jameson (before she had blue eyes), but then in
those days the assistants were "something for the Dads". (In which
category Perry certainly qualified - _very_ provocative; however, by
then the original series was in its decline.) I never really got into
the new serieses (?), though my brother did at times.
_Some_ of TOS (can we say that outside TrekWorld?) were just _weird_.
There was a time (1990s?) when they retransmitted most of them, and some
of them - I remember one when I think there were two assistants, one
being Scottish Jamie - were decidedly surreal. (And terrible picture
quality, though that seemed to add to the weirdness.)
