Pennant Roberts (1940-2010) RIP

The death of Pennant Roberts has been announced.

Pennant directed no less than 6 Doctor Who stories: The Face of Evil, The Sun Makers, The Pirate Planet, Shada, Warriors of the Deep and Timelash. His reputation amongst fandom has been somewhat sullied by the last two, but all sorts of events conspired against him on them.

The Pandorica Opens. Mine's a pint.

Gary Merchant gives us his veiws........

Okay, so how does Gareth Roberts know I go to Rymans?

I thought it was a great story, one of those little gems in amongst the big stuff. Nice touch with the Van Gogh postcard on the fridge. And how is the Doctor going to explain the ring to Amy?

The Lodger. Scary Monsters or Super Creeps?

Let's see..............

Vincent and the Doctor. A vase of sunflowers.

A couple more very positive reviews for episode 10.

Vincent and the Doctor. Was it a starry, starry night?

Let's find out.............

John Howe: Vincent and the Doctor was another superb episode from what is turning out to be a very impressive series of Doctor Who. The story was simple, the best ones always are but it's real power lay in the relationship between the Doctor and Amy, and Tony Curran's magnificent portrayal of Vincent Van Gogh.

The Hungry Earth. The Final Word.

This week it's from Gary Merchant.
