    She also appears in The gallifrey audio series. It's basically Romana 1 vs Romana 2 and Leela for awhile there. As well as a few companion chronicles.

    Don't feel too bad. I've been a big Doctor Who fan since I was in high school/ the 90's & couldn't stay up to watch it, & I just got to watch the Key to Time a few weeks ago, having borrowed it from an acquaintance. At last check, 4/6 of the Key to Time was on Netflix. I can't say for sure, but I think The Stones of Blood & the last serial were the 2 missing.

    Honestly - and no disrespect to the late Ms. Tamm - I've always thought that the Key to Time season was the start of the decline for Tom Baker. All the stuff after Leela left (that wasn't City of Death) just wasn't as good.

    The Key To Time series best stories were,

    "The Ribos Operation"
    "The Pirate Planet"
    "The Androids of Tara"

    The others were distinctly average.

    After that the only really good stories before Tom left were,

    "City of Death"
    "Warriors Gate"

    There were some nice moments in other stories at that time and Tom's performances were always fun but the overall story quality definitely dipped.

    There is supposed to be a trailer tomorrow, maybe we will find out then, but a good bet is after the olympics.

    Looking forward to Asylum. Anyone else notice how the New Paradigm Drones have recieved some paint? Shiny metallic red and gold bumps. Looks lovely, but I can't help but wish they'd painted the Bronze daleks, instead (or too). Either to match their shiny new officers, or in any different scheme (grey would be nice, as would silver/blue). They just feel a bit "Oh, it's those guys again" after their constant appearences during the RTD seasons.


    I'm looking forward to the less arc-heavy episodes, too. Just worried about how the 45 mins formula will affect the story, though. I worry that it'll feel like they get wiped out not long after they're introduced (or at least the classic Daleks will). I'd wager that the episode could also be a taste of what's to come in the anniversary, what with the Daleks having a seemingly massive empire again.

    Thanks for posting (had only seen small pics).

    Am very exited for the next series -- just seeing the new trailer only increased this :) 

    Hope that Amy has a good sent-off and I also hope she doesn't die. Since weeping angels are apparently involved I hope they just get thrown into the past (as in Blink) and enjoy their stay so they won't keep on travelling with the Doctor. (But I think they'll just die, seeing as KG said she wanted Amy to die so she couldn't constantly come back like Rose -- which I agree with, but that won't require them dying :(  .)

    Am a bit worried about the Daleks apparently having a story again. With the exception of series 1 "Dalek", I've disliked to loathed each and every Dalek story in the modern series.

    But when will this series start ?!? First was august, then I read somewhere in the fall. I missed the first eps last year and I don't want that to happen again.


    Love B7 and still is one of my favorite SF series of all time (in competition with DS-9, and the new BSG). But I honestly don't know if I want a continuation. The ending was, hard as it was, such a suitable ending for this show. Having anyone of the group survive seems to diminish that in my eyes. (Although, the earlier leaked idea by Paul Darrow that Avon had survived and had been marooned on a planet (like Napoleon on Elba) could work...maybe...)

    I'd be more interested in a reworked release of the original series with better (or actual) special effects. Make the space battles a bit more interesting by actual showing something, or perhaps digitally changing the background. Had this urge the last week to rewatch Pressure Point (bloody amazing eps) and them climbing three times down the same ladder and walking the same corridor (once normally lit, once red and once blue(?)) was a bit ridicolous.
