50 years of Doctor Who Time to Celebrate!

Doctor Who on November 23 rd will celebrate 50 years since it first aired on the BBC in 1963 and a phenomenon was born and three years later it started in Australia!

I really can’t remember a time when I (Eugenia) didn’t know about Doctor Who. Looking back at some of my school books when most girls were drawing pretty flowers and dogs I was drawing daleks exterminating everyone! I love this show and have watched it through the best and the not so best times of its running.

So here is a list of my top three stories from each Doctor. Not an easy thing to pick as I could name more than 3 for each era but here it goes! 1st Doctor William Hartnell The Unearthly Child – The first Doctor Who episode is about how the Doctor gains his first companions. The first episode was brilliant, it kept my interest from beginning to end. WHO were these mysterious man and girl? The Daleks – of course you have to love the first story that introduces the daleks! There has never been another non humanoid enemy in any Sci Fi as successful as the daleks. The Celestial Toymaker – such a pity that all the episodes are not available for viewing. This story really scared me, I am sure my fear of clowns came from these episodes. The Doctor disappearing and only his hand being seen as he played games with the Toymaker was awesome! Doctor 1 – William Hartnell

3rd Doctor Jon Pertwee Terror of the Autons – plastic was never so scary! In this story another Time Lord comes on the scene. The Master, swore enemy of The Doctor plans ways to rule the Earth. The Three Doctors – such an unexpected delight! Three doctors in one room! The banter between Patrick, Jon and William Hartnell is priceless. It’s a good story with an impressive villain called Omega. The Time Warrior – brilliant story of kidnapped scientists transported to medieval England, the first story for Sarah Jane Smith and a ‘potato’ headed alien (Sontaran) that is fantastic.

2nd Doctor Patrick Troughton The Tomb of the Cybermen—the re‐introduction of my second favourite Doctor Who enemy! (The first time they appeared was in Tenth Planet) When the Cybermen broke through the plastic coming out of their ‘hive’ enclosure that sent a shiver down my spine. They seemed unstoppable. The Ice Warriors – another favourite enemy. The clothes of the ‘future’ humans were also very ‘groovy’. Web of Fear – absolutely thrilled that this story was one of the ones found though it is still not complete. Regardless, the Yeti are in abundance and Colonel Lethbridge Stewart is introduced. Little did we know at that time he would become a regular feature in future stories.

4th Doctor Tom Baker Robot – this is Tom Baker’s first story. The Doctor’s costume changing routine is a classic and the Robot is quite impressive. Pyramids of Mars – who doesn’t have a fascination with Egyptian mythology! This story was filled with mummies, artefacts and curses. The Robots of Death – not just a Doctor Who story but a murder mystery as well! The art deco Robots were very menacing and the set decoration was a work of art.

5th Doctor Peter Davison The Visitation – the alien in this is rather weird looking rather than scary. A lovely period piece that explains how the Great Fire of London began! It was entirely the Doctor’s fault, of course! The Five Doctors – love this one. Have watched it at least 10 times if not more! Fantastic ensemble of Doctors, companions and enemies past and present! The Resurrection of the Daleks – a rather gritty story where Davros makes an appearance. It is also Tegan’s last story as she bids farewell to the Doctor after witnessing one massacre too many.

7th Doctor Sylvester McCoy Remembrance of the Dalek – this is a fantastic story. Nice homage to the first Doctor. Excellent daleks and a few surprises thrown in. Battlefield – nice to see the Brigadier back again joined by a feisty new female Brigadier who is now in charge of U.N.I.T. The Curse of Fenric – one of the more spookier stories of Doctor Who. A mixture of World War II, vampires and Vikings.

Website www.genews-ezine.com

6th Doctor Colin Baker The Mark of the Rani – a villainous female Time Lord comes into the life of the Doctor and the Master also causes havoc in this story. The Two Doctors – not a great story but you have to watch it just for the fact that Doctor 2 Patrick Troughton and companion Jamie McCrimmon Frazier Hines come back to fight Sontarans and Androgums alongside Doctor 6. Terror of the Vervoids – if nothing else you can laugh at the fact that the writers have made the villains killer plants!!

8th Doctor 8 Paul McGann The Movie – I must admit this has improved with age. New Who has certainly mellowed my opinion about the movie. It is not as bad as it was when I first saw it in the 90s. I may even grow to like it, eventually!

9th Doctor Christopher Eccleston Rose – It was with great anticipation that I first watched this episode. I so hoped that it would be good, and it was! What a relief Doctor Who may survive past 13 episodes! The End of the World – what a wonderful array of aliens from all over the galaxy. A make‐up artist’s dream! Loved Cassandra – ‘moisture me!’ The Empty Child – I was behind the sofa for this one. Still makes my skin crawl watching it. Enter Captain Jack, what a man!

10th Doctor David Tennant School Reunion – the return of Sarah Jane and K9. Loved it, loved it! Loved everything about this one. Great one liners and wonderful ‘Anything you can do, I can do better’ speech between Rose and Sarah Jane. The Girl in the Fireplace – scary wind up robots under the bed and a beautiful love story. A mixture of funny lines and a sad story line. Blink – what a story! After this I can never look at a stone angel the same way ever again.

11th Doctor Matt Smith Cold Blood – the Silurians are back but well and truly more organised than the ones that Doctor 3 first met. Dinosaurs on a Spaceship – the title is just what you got dinosaurs on a spaceship!! A great story with good characters. Rory’s dad is brilliant in this story. The Snowmen – beginning to really love the trio of Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint and Strax. Good story, clever dialogue and the villain is one from the Doctor’s past.

An Oddie but a Goodie!!

If you were a child/teenager in the 70s and 80s and lived in rural Australia or your parents were ABC watchers then there is every possibility that you are a ‘Goodies’ fan! Who are the Goodies? They are a wacky trio who rode around on a ‘triplet bike’ called “The Trandem” getting up to silly absurd adventures doing ‘Anything, Anytime, Anywhere’. Recently, we had the pleasure of helping to support one of The Goodies, Bill Oddie on his ‘Tour Down Under’. The Goodies consisted of Graeme (Graeme Garden), a scientist and inventor whose experiments usually caused a catastrophe of some sort, Tim (Tim Brooke‐Taylor) who was a soppy‐minded and nervous English royalist who had a penchant for wearing Union Flag waistcoats, underpants and socks with his smart navy suits and Bill, (Bill Oddie) who played a short, scraggly, fun‐loving, opinionated and long haired working class everyman who has been known to hallucinate on Sherbet. The show aired in 1970 ,finishing in 1981, in England it was shown after 9pm as it was never intended as a children’s program. However, ABC, Australia repeatedly aired the show during the 70s and 80s in an early evening time slot with many younger people becoming fans. To this day many of the episodes still ‘hold up’ as they tackled issues such as pollution from corporations, genetic engineering and social injustice to name a few in a clever and funny way and are still relevant today. The Australian Tour of Bill Oddie (we saw him in Adelaide) consisted of Bill taking us on a journey through his life to date as he talked about his home life, time on ‘The Goodies’ and his passion for making wild life documentaries especially about birds as he is an ornithologist with his reminisces interspersed with photos and film clips. After the show there was an opportunity to have something autographed and have a picture taken with Bill.

We had an interesting discussion on one of our past podcasts with Jeff Walker from ‘The Goodies Podcast’ http:// goodiespodcast.libsyn.com and we persuaded Jeff The Goodies is a Sci Fi show. Click the link and see whether you agree? http://womentalkscifi.com/podcast/article/54‐podcast‐44.html To start the ball rolling, here are the reasons why we think The Goodies is Sci Fi. The Goodies live in a TARDIS. From the outside their place is extremely small but when you go inside it is enormous with many spacious rooms. Well before large flat screen TVs The Goodies had a large 3m x 1.5m screen for their viewing pleasure. In ‘Come Dancing’ Graeme invents remote control dancing suits that go haywire. The episode ‘Kitten Kong’ has ‘Twinkle’ the kitten, growing into a gigantic ‘Kitty Kong’ due to Graeme’s growth mixture. Tim, Graeme and Bill take a trip to the moon to find ‘Floppsy’ and ‘Spiro’ two rabbits that had been blasted to the moon by Graeme. ‘Floppsy’ is now ‘Big Bunny’ and comments that he is going to turn Bill and Tim into rabbits so that they can take over the earth. When the United States Army asks the Goodies to get rid of a large container, with the words Tomato Soup on its side, they take it back to their office and find a strange‐looking mixture inside. When they eat the soup they find that the ‘soup’ changes people into clowns. Bill and Tim find out that Graeme has been making weird dogs to enter Crufts Dog Show. These included a flying dog, a cross between a dog and a parrot, a chair dog who was a cross between a dog and a chair, and ‘Frankenfido’ a six‐legged monster, which was made out of a lot of spare parts. In ‘2001 and a Bit’ (aired in 1976) we get a glimpse of what it might be like in the year 2001. Graeme enlists some ‘Supermen’ and a ‘Supernun’ to get rid of a rapidly approaching spacecraft before it can reach Earth in the episode called ‘U‐Friend or UFO?’ The episode ‘Robot’ has Tim and Graeme becoming the ‘proud parents’ of a baby robot. This is just the tip of the Sci Fi in The Goodies iceberg almost every episode has some sort of Sci Fi or Fantasy reference in it. If you have never watched The Goodies give yourself a treat and watch some on You Tube and then buy the remastered episodes on DVD.

The name Irwin Allen (12/3/1916 ‐2/11/1991) may not mean a lot to some people but when “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea’ ‘Lost in Space’, ‘The Time Tunnel’ and ‘Land of the Giants’ are mentioned it would be true to say that these titles maybe familiar to you. Irwin Allen, an American television, documentary, and film director/producer was a prolific creator of science fiction television during the 60s and 70s. Lost in Space, the show remembered by most aired 1965 ‐1968 with 83 episodes it was about the Robinson family, foreign spy, Dr Zachary Smith, pilot Major Don West and a robot. Thrown off course and lost ‘in space’ due to sabotage by Dr Smith. Constant repeats meant that many still cry ‘Danger, Danger Will Robinson!’ when a tricky situation is about to occur. However, at the end of its run the show did become silly as Dr Smith got himself into more and more bazaar situations like meeting a talking vegetable! Nine year old Will Robinson, played by Bill Mumy, went on to many other shows/films but returned to his Sci Fi roots writing episodes for ‘Space Cases’ and portraying the character Lennier in ‘Babylon 5. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, airing in 1964‐68 was the 60s longest‐ running American science fiction show. It lasted 110 episodes The first two seasons were set in the future of the 1970s and the final two season took place in the 1980s.

The Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea series was based on a 1961 film of the same name starring a young Barbara Eden. As the film was also created by Irwin Allen many of the film’s sets, costumes, props, special effects models and sometimes footage was used in the production of the television series. Most of the action takes place on the S.S.R.N Seaview a futuristic nuclear submarine. The stories ranged from government espionage to strange, very large sea creatures and the occasional extra‐terrestrial. The stories are dated and probably not as entertaining now as they were in the 60s, however still worth a viewing. Website www.genews-ezine.com

The Time Tunnel (1966‐1967), ran for one season (30 episodes). For its time the concept of ‘The Time Tunnel’ was an interesting one. Two scientists lost in ‘time’ transported from one time period to another trying to find a way back home. Not only did it have a very attractive lead Dr Newman played by James Darren, but had a woman scientist, Dr McGregor played by Lee Meriwether, something of a novelty on TV during that era. Each week the two scientists landed in a well‐known historical event e.g. bombing of Pearl Harbour, eruption of Krakatoa and each week the scientists on the other side of the tunnel were trying to bring them home safely. Towards the end the occasional alien appeared, wearing similar outfits to other Irwin shows. This show being set in a historical context is still quite watchable and well worth a search. Land of the Giants, (1968‐1970), was Irwin’s last science fiction series for the 60s. With two seasons (51 episodes), it was set in the then‐future year 1983. The crew and passengers of a sub‐orbital transport spaceship called Spindrift encounters a strange space storm on route to London from Los Angeles. The ship is transported to a mysterious planet where everything is twelve times larger than on Earth. The crew spends the next 50 episodes trying not to be captured or squashed! You have to admire the amount of work that went into building the sets for this show, no such thing as computer generated props or scenery. Everything was built from scratch and appears to be 12 times larger!! The thing that dates the show is the costumes and hairstyles, even though the uniforms of the crew are futuristic the rest of the cast make it feel it is in the 60s. You have to give Irwin Allen credit ‘Land of the Giants’ for its time was an amazing show.

Irwin Allen went on to be known as the ‘Master of Disaster’ producing and/or directing movies such as ‘The Poseidon Adventure (1972), The Towering Inferno (1974) and The Swarm (1978). In the early 80s Irwin returned to his science fiction, fantasy roots producing ‘The Amazing Captain Nemo’ which can be found on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=ycSuyuwm3pA with a star‐studded cast including starring Donald O’Connor, Shelley Winters, Scott Baio, Sammy Davis Jr to name a few. We have a lot to thank Irwin Allen for, his creativity, vision and storytelling and his love for science fiction.

TEKWAR is a series of books written by none other than Captain Kirk himself! Well, it really was William Shatner who wrote a series of nine books and this was made into a television series in 1994 and had two series of 22 episodes. Shatner says that he began writing notes about the story whilst on the set of Star Trek and in 1989 the first was published. Shatner starred in the series as well as a few other familiar faces including Torri Higginson of Stargate Atlantis fame. The story revolves around Jake Cardigan in the year 2045. Jake a police officer who is wrongly imprisoned was accused of taking and then murdering his fellow officers whilst on a “bust” . Sentenced to 15 years cryo‐detainment he is awoken early and recruited by a private company going after “Tek Lords”. He does this in the hope that he will be able to clear his name. Whilst the plot sounds familiar remember that Shatner commenced writing the books in the 60s and they evolved over time. The series is interesting and still full of entertainment. It starts with four movie length episodes in the first season and moves on to 18 regular episodes in season two.

In 1964 well known Professor of Biochemistry and Sci‐fi Author whilst at The World Fair thought that it was a good time to wonder what the world would be like in 50 years from that time. He made some predictions about what he thought the world might look like! Did he get it right? So what does Asimov’s 2014

Gadgetry will be able to relive us of tedious jobs! There will be gadgets that will prepare “automeals’” These will heat water and convert it into coffee, toast bread, frying, poach or scramble eggs, grill bacon and so on. You will be able to order it the night before and have it ready when you want it in the morning. Well not quite Star Trek yet, but coffee machines will turn on and there are “teasmade” machines that do the toasting and the boiling of eggs as well as tea or coffee so he got it mostly right! Communication will become not only sound but sight as well! The screen you use will not only be for seeing people but for documents, photographs and reading passages from books. Satellites hovering in space will make it possible for you to call anyone anywhere! Yep nailed that one he did and doing exactly what he said right now. We will continue to withdraw from nature to create buildings and environments that suit us better and will have by 2014 electroluminescent panels that will be in common use and ceilings and walls will glow softly with a touch of a button they will change colour! Another prediction but we got them a little earlier than 2014. There will be no electric cables attached to appliances that will be powered by long‐life batteries. Highways will have passed their peak in 2014 and while still having aircraft, we will have vehicles that take to the air about a foot or two off the road! Well we all want one but we are not quite there yet! Vehicles with ‘robot‐brains’ which can be set for any destination will be available so that they can proceed without driver help! Not quite there yet but they are not far off now, just look at automatic parking and the research happening today! Screens will replace the type that was available in 1964 and they will be transparent cubes that will allow three‐dimensional viewing. So how many of us have a 3D TV in our “media rooms”? The world population will be 6,500,000 with the US growing to 3,500,000 (just about right) . Routine jobs will be done by machines and the human race will become machine tenders. All high school students will be taught the fundamentals of computer technology and will become proficient in binary arithmetic and other computer languages! Well not all true but pretty close! We will suffer from boredom and this will have serious mental, emotional and sociological consequences and psychiatry will be the most important specialty Is this correct, maybe, maybe not! He thought that the most glorious word in our vocabulary would be “work” because we will be “a society of enforced leisure”! Well this one he did get wrong!

So, what do you think? Was he right or wrong?

Dr Jean Laby (1915–2008) Jean Laby was born in Melbourne Victoria in 1915, the daughter of a Natural Philosophy Professor, the field now known as Physics. Jean was born in Parkville but living in South Yarra her family would go for walks in the nearby botanical gardens where her father would use his walking stick to show the effects of refraction and maybe beginning her interest in science? Victoria later lived up on the grounds of the University of Melbourne with her professor father and would help him at night to set up the experiments for the next day. Always interested in science, she studied physics, chemistry and mathematics up until matriculation. When she decided to finally do physics in stead of architecture she had to attend her father's lectures being too nervous to enjoy them.

Not content just to attend University she also attended the Working Men’s College (now RNIT) for night classes to learn to blow glass so that she could make the apparatus that was used in her studies at the time.

Graduating in 1940, she answered an advert about a job for the Weather Bureau, and although they showed her around they were a bit concerned as they did not have any separate bedrooms for women when they had to stay overnight! She was offered this job but decided not to take it on as the war had broken out as many young graduates now were working for the Optical Munitions Panel to produce optical instruments for the forces so she took on the role of demonstrator in the Department of Natural Philosophy . Doing research on the conductivity of water she gained her masters and following this she was offered an opportunity to work on the cosmic ray project. To detect these rays she would use nuclear emulsions as thick layers on thin glass plates and to expose this to the radiation had to be sent into the atmosphere by balloon. Having to make plastic balloons herself as these were not available commercially. The project was a success and they were able to get the balloons to a height of 38 kilometres and quite an achievement. Jean earned her doctorate in 1959. Jean worked in this field for many years including doing work in the are of Climate Impact Assessment Program measuring atmospheric aerosols, ozone and water vapour in the stratosphere. She also was a senior lecture at the RAAF Academy in Point Cook a position she held for 21 years. She was never promoted above the position of senior lecturer but her world‐class work has been recognised by many experts in her field and her efforts in publications, attracting huge sums of research money and contributions have been enormous. In 2009 Dr. Laby was inducted to the Victorian Honour Roll of Women. (Source: Encyclopedia of Australian Science) Website www.genews-ezine.com

Supanova Sydney was a star studded event with actors from some iconic films such as Carrie Fisher, Star Wars’, Princess Leia, Margot Kidder, Superman’s, Lois Lane and the larger than life David Hasselhoff. As well as some rather gorgeous guys who made up part of the Round Table in Merlin, Bradley James who played King Arthur, Eoin Macken (Sir Gwaine), Rupert Young (Sir Leon) and Tom Hopper (Sir Percival). Add a Hobbit or two, and Star Trek’s Karl Urban and Anthony Montgomery, as well as the twins from Harry Potter and Alan Tudyk of Firefly to the mix and it was a weekend of endless lining up for autograph after autograph. Talks by the guests is always a highlight as you find out some interesting bits of trivia or get to laugh at what happens when they tell you stories from the set. There were a number of geeky moments for the geek in us all when Carrie Fisher spoke of her time playing Princess Leia and making the Star Wars movies. Karl Urban spoke about the pranks that they played on each other on the set of the latest movie Star Trek Into Darkness and let us in on the standing gag that Simon Pegg plays on new members of the cast as he is always claiming to new arrivals to the set that they had to wear spots of zinc cream on their faces to stop radiation sickness as they were filming in an old nuclear plant. Would you believe that he was so convincing Chris Pine, Karl and Benedict Cumberbatch all fell for the joke and wore zinc cream for days! One of the most entertaining couples on stage was Eve Myles and Kai Owen. As you remember they played the husband and wife team Gwen Cooper and Rhys Williams in Torchwood. The way that they took the ‘mickey’ out of each other whilst on stage told us that they knew each other really well, their Q&A was energetic and filled with laughter and even a Welsh song from Kai (who has an amazing voice) and an interpretive dance from Eve! Of course one of the many pleasures attending a Supanova event is the many attendees that come along in wonderful and fantastic costumes whether participating in cosplay or not! Once again ,Supanova was a great convention and with all autographs safely packed away waiting for the next one will be hard!

Congratulations on the Opening of Mad Zombie Collectables in Adelaide. At the end of March Cherie & Nick (formally CERNAT and Movie Maniacs) opened their own store in the Adelaide Arcade ‐ 107G Balcony Level Gays Arcade. Both are no strangers to the Convention scene and now the Mad Zombie stand can be found at all the major Convention expos in the country. The opening of the new store was a great event with cosplayers helping to turn a few heads in Rundle Mall, Adelaide. The Dalek was certainly a highlight with shoppers and young children who couldn’t quite believe what they were seeing. Mad Zombie stocks a wide variety of Sci Fi/Fantasy memorabilia and Cherie is also happy to help in searching for that elusive item that is a ‘must’ for the collectable shelf! Have a look at their website www.madzombie.com.au , find them at a Convention or better still visit their store. Be warned the store has powers to suck money right out of your purse or wallet! GE wishes Cherie and Nick every success.
