The Eleven Faces of Doctor Who

The piece by Hayden Gribble in the new CT has set me thinking about what I would include in an "Eleven Faces" season.

On the basis of them being "roughly 90 minutes" (by the way Hayden, The Two Doctors isn't!!) my list is:

1st Doctor: The Romans
2nd Doctor: The Krotons
3rd Doctor: Day of the Daleks SE
4th Doctor: City of Death
5th Doctor: Earthshock
6th Doctor: Mark of the Rani

The Dæmons DVD

If you're planning to pre-order this ahead of its release on Monday week, may we point you in the direction of the BBC Shop. Entering the code RPMAR12 gives you a 10% discount, which will bring the price down to £11.69.

Eoh, eoh, Azal!
