Spearhead From Space

This is the third (third? I think) Doctor. This is the first time I have watched episodes with Jon Pertwee. At the end of War Games, the Doctor was exiled to earth. This episode starts with the TARDIS materializing and the Doctor falls out and passes out. There is also an alien invasion going on, which gets the Brigadier and UNIT involved. He doesn’t recognize the Doctor at first since he has a different face but since the Brigadier has met the Doctor before, that isn’t much of a problem. Liz Shaw doesn’t like working with UNIT but the Doctor charms her, Jon Pertwee is a very charming Doctor, even when he tries to escape, he hangs his head and apologizes and is forgiven.

In the end, the Doctor and Liz figure out how to kill the Nestenes and the Doctor strikes up a deal with the Brigadier for laboratory supplies, clothes and a car. After all the Doctor is stuck on earth for the foreseeable future.

The problem with watching the old episodes is a lot are missing. So that means a lot of jumping around. The advantage of watching them on DVD is I get to watch the whole story-line at once, even if it stretches out to 5 or 6 episodes. Also, I watch the DVDs in the order I get them from the library, and since some are there and some have to be requested, I am not always watching them in order.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
