Re: Coming soon on Freeview Channels

Frustratingly the last two episodes of it, "Orlando" : "Dangerous Waters", are missing though! True about "Sexton Blake", it was such a good series, hopefully there may still be some out there. It would be interesting to know the origin of all these Rediffusion prints that have survived in private h...

Re: Missing Believed Wiped 2020

Typical, it should be an existing one, but it's not surprising it's a series that would be audio recorded, so who knows what else will turn up.

Re: Eurovision 2020/21

It'll be weird with no audience, just like "Strictly" was, albeit with an obviously tiny audience compared to "Eurovision".

Re: Coming soon on Freeview Channels

Amazing news, and Rediffusion again, there must be a stack of em' somewhere, can't wait to see them.

TPTV obviously have a very good relationship with many film collectors, fingers crossed for some "Orlando" and "Sexton Blake" next.

Re: Crossovers?

Although a sketch, I'm sure it counts, in "The Edward Woodward Hour", "Callan" meets "Father Dear Father".

Also a "Christmas Night With The Stars" mini episode in which Noote from "All Gas And Gaiters" meets Brother Dominic from "Oh Brother!", courtesy of split-screen.

I don't think any of the "MASH" spin-offs were all that well received, including the pilot with Radar joining the Police.

I hope this will be on CD, rather than just Vinyl, I'm all for the latter, but a CD would be my first choice.

Re: Doctor Who Classic Series and DVDs

To be fair, there had always been complaints from the public, as it was always perceived as a children's programme rather than a family show, and it was in the top ten most violent programmes, back in the early 70's. The BBC did admit that "Deadly Assassin" went too far with the drowning scene, and ...

Looks like the 13th doctor is heading for the exit.... hopefully the current show runner will quickly follow
I'm not surprised, she will be keen to move on, CC may well stay though, so he can work with more than one Doctor.

Re: Doctor Who Classic Series and DVDs

It's ironic though, with it being so popular, there had always been complaints from parents, who seemed to forget they enjoyed being scared when they were young as well.

"The Deadly Assassin" probably tipped it over the edge.

I was born in 1980 so McCoy is my generation's Doctor. I have no time for the glorification of Hinchcliffe and Holmes and the concurrent inferred dismissal of everyone else who worked on the show as second rate. Hinchcliffe was soon kicked sideways for upsetting too many adult viewers who were NOT ...

Indeed. I didn't mean Season 1, then Season 2, through 26.

There were several "special features" where people were effectively apologising that the serial ...
