I love this idea and this thread. I feel in love with the first Doctor on an Unearthly Child that was the first episode of Classic Who that I ever watched.

Cheers- I reckon it could be quite good. We could do additional rewatches, post fanart, talk about companions and characters of the era, possible returns of said companions etc.

I remember it well- I believe that was the first Classic rewatch we did on the board...

I think BBC has to air a special for the First Doctor this month? I've read they're making specials up until November and then I'm guessing they're gonna air something special about all of The Doctor's incarnations.

I assume they'll show some documentaries- can't imagine it being this soon- but one thing I know for sure is they are doing a drama on Doctor Who's origins- not the character, but how the idea came about- so they'll be casting someone as William Hartnell, which makes me think maybe they might recast the first three Doctors if they are casting someone as the actor who plays him...

That will be something interesting to watch. If they're doing this, I'm curious who're they gonna pick to play him.

I just noticed that Doctor Who and James Bond are kinda the same, in that a lot of guys have portrayed them. James Bond is getting some OSCAR love this February (I think Connery, Brosnan, Moore, Dalton, and of course Daniel Craig are all coming for that tribute) and I hope Doctor Who gets the same treatment, maybe BAFTA style?

That's awesome!! I'll add it to the OP

We should definitely do Hartnell rewatches this month though... maybe Friday and Sunday for the next two weeks, and keep the Saturday one for a miscellaneous episode of awesomeness (Oh what a great phrase... note to self... use that phrase more often)

So for instance:

Friday 18th
Unearthly Child

Saturday 19th
Miscellaneous episode of awesomeness

Sunday 20th
The Dalek Invasion of Earth

Friday 25th
The Chase

Saturday 26th
Miscellaneous episode of awesomeness

Sunday 27th
Time Meddler

And people can join if they want/have time, and not if they don't? And then for future months just do Friday/Saturday instead of all three days, as the reason for doing two Hartnell ones a week is due to the fact that I set the thread up almost two weeks into the month, whereas if we set up a new Doctor thread each month we should be fine with one episode a week...
