The Original, You Might Say

As I begin this journey, I have to confess that I will begin with Story 011: The Rescue. All the preceding stories of the First Doctor that have been released on DVD (An Unearthly Child, The Daleks, Inside the Spaceship, Marco Polo, The Keys of Marinus, The Aztecs, and The Dalek Invasion of Earth) were already reviewed at Rick's Cafe Texan.

However, I would like readers of Gallifrey Exile to have access to them, so here you go:

A Home Among The Stars

I never have accepted the Death of Gallifrey and the extinction of the Time Lords. I steadfastly refuse to acknowledge such heresy. Of all the things I don't like about the revived Doctor Who, it's the idea that Gallifrey, The Doctor's home planet, no longer exists and that all his people are lost.

Be that as it may, I have decided to create a New Gallifrey, albeit with only the purpose of looking back in the past. I used to write Doctor Who reviews on Rick's Cafe Texan, but have decided the best thing to do is create a separate world (so to speak) to get the reviews for all the stories from now on. That being the case, I now have a new repository for this brilliant (and maddening series): where I will muse on all things Doctor Who-related. Mostly there will be reviews for the classic and revived series, but on occassion I will have personal reflections on any aspect of Doctor Who. It may be a remembrance of someone who has passed on, or it may be to rail against something I did not like or praise something I did.
