I was lucky that back in the 80s, one of the TV stations I got used to show Doctor Who every week in lieu of a cheap Sunday afternoon movie. They'd just run a whole serial in an afternoon, one episode after the next. And they did them in order, starting at the beginning. I got to see quite a lot of Hartnell and Troughton. I also got much more familiar with Pertwee, since I hadn't seen as much of him.

It was great. A couple of hours of classic Doctor Who on Sunday, daily Tom Baker episodes every weeknight after dinner on a public station, and the new weekly episode (Davison, Colin Baker, McCoy) that was currently airing in Canada. I always liked the Doctor, but I got to be quite a fan during those teenage years.

When I was 12 my local PBS station literally bombarded the airwaves with Doctor Who. Tom Baker episodes every day at 5. Jon Pertwee every night at 11. A complete Baker serial on Saturday afternoon at 2. And the new Peter Davidson episodes at 7 on Sunday night. Being my favorite show, I loved it of course. This only lasted for a few months. By 1989 they had cut back to just one serial on Saturday and in 1990 stopped airing them altogether. I had to suffer with four or five VHS releases untill I got a DVD player in 2001. Now get's about 50% of my yearly imcome!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
