Don't Panic - It's Only CITY OF DEATH

(Since we had technical problems the first time, we're offering this revisitation as a way to make it up for those who attended. Plus, the story deserves it)

It's considered the greatest Tom Baker story - as well as possibly the greatest Doctor Who story - ever produced. Yet, many fans wonder if City of Death really is that good.

In our opinion - yes, it is. So good, that we're going to attempt to show it again.

Written by David Agnew, the Alan Smithee of the BBC (or, more accurately, Douglas Adams & Graham Williams in a coffee-and-whisky-fueled weekend writing binge), City is a smart, sharp, witty, thrill-packed story. Partially filmed in Paris (in fact, it was the first time Doctor Who filmed outside of the British Isles), City of Death simply oozes charm. Some great quotable lines, sparkling dialogue....and a very special cameo.

No, we're not going to spoil. We had someone complain that the DVD menu provided spoilers. He was upset when we informed him that The Web of Fear not only involved webbing, but also involved fear....

But let's face it - it's an episode bereft of bow ties, or pining for companions. It's definitely a masterpiece of Doctor Who. And in this timey wimey world, getting a second chance to see it is worth it.
