Drama and light entertainment (1966-09-22) (1966)

[edit]

One of our friends, as eccentric as Adam, has returned to service : I wait for a day when there will be a conflation of the serials. Let me record a new and properly absurd Dr Who (BBC-1, Saturdays). On September 10 we had no trouble with exposition. When a Cockney seaman and girl friend roamed into the 'Tardis', fun began immediately. 'Why did you follow me?' asked Dr Who (William Hartnell again), a trifle rattled. 'This is a vessel for travelling through time and space'. It landed in the seventeenth century, on a strip of English coast that looked uncommonly familiar, and bang in the middle of a sub-Treasure Island narrative : murder of a churchwarden who had been mate of the black 'Albatross', and arrest (by the law) of two of the space-travellers. Meanwhile, captured by the enemy, Dr Who was being trundled off—like Pickwick by Captain Boldwig's men—to the presence of the deadly Captain Pike. It was, apparently, a matter of pirate's gold. I merely state the situation. We need not worry about anyone, though whether Ben, the able seaman with a twentieth-century train to catch, will get back in time for it, I cannot say.
