    One thought on “TARDIS Eruditorum - An Unofficial Critical History of Doctor Who Volume 6: Peter Davison and Colin Baker”

    1. So, two Doctors in one volume of Tardis Eruditorium Sandifer s rationale for this two for one deal is that the best way to examine the series is to look at who was actually making it so whereas we did have two doctors, behind the scenes we had the same executive producer and nearly the same script editor for the whole of the run Therefore it makes sense to look at the Peter Davison The Fifth Doctor and Colin Baker The Sixth Doctor eras as one thing Except in actually doing this in one book, we s [...]

    2. The sixth volume in Phil Sandifer s excellent series of Doctor Who essays covers two Doctors in one, which is a sensible decision on their own, his pieces on the Fifth Doctor s era would seem a little inconclusive and the apocalyptic collapse of the Sixth would be too melodramatic Here, the latter provides the tragic direction for the former a show that boasts an excellent lead actor, a bold new timeslot and some intriguingly fresh ideas, but that plays to almost none of these strengths and runs [...]

    3. This is, without a doubt, the finest work of Doctor Who analysis that I have ever had the privilege to read A glorious overview of my personal golden era of the serieswhen my much younger self first discovered Peter Davison s much youger and beautifully magnificent Fifth Doctor Thank you Philip Sandifer, for helping me to re live that time, as I have never done before You ve given me quite the early Christmas present.

    4. Philip Sandifer s TARDIS Eruditorum series is a fantastic journey through the history of the show It is not so much about the making of each episode as it is about the cultural background and the ideas that the show is creating This volume combines the eras of Davison and C Baker, showing how the producer John Nathan Turner began to get burnt out and began to sabotage the show with poor decisions.I highly recommend this series

    5. The sixth volume of TARDIS Eruditorum is one of decline, chronicling the rapid collapse of Doctor Who from the flash of fresh air with the arrival of Peter Davison through the utter bottoming out of the show five seasons later with the end of the Colin Baker era.It starts out at average quality, holding together a bit better in this whole package than reading it week to week as it came out in blog form Given that Sandifer has been very open about this part of the blog being originally very diffi [...]

    6. nwhytevejournal 2539376mlThe latest of Sandifer s collected essays from his blog, hot off the presses There is a lot less to say about this less popular era of Doctor Who his previous two books covered the seven Tom Baker years, this one book covers five years and two Doctors There s not a lot of people who pick this as their favourite era of the show But Sandifer does his best to find redemptive readings it is preferable, given the choice among reasonable arguments, to like a piece of art rathe [...]

    7. A thought provoking work on the troubled and oft criticised eighties Doctor Who, especially Colin Baker s two years as the Sixth Doctor, that does much to provide redemptive reading not devoid of justifiable criticism of the era s clear flaws.

    8. Another brilliant installment in this entertaining and thought provoking series You don t have to be a fan of either the 5th or 6th Doctors to got a lot out of it Can t wait for the next one

    9. The essay on K 9 and Company isn t in this book for some reason It should have been I would have thought the second essay in the book, after the one on the Five Faces of Doctor Who repeat season If you, like me, find yourself missing it, it can currently be read here eruditorumpress blog o
