I will likely pre-order the boxed set from Mike’s comics but I have this comment to make. You should give them a ring concerning the new episodes The cover art is a vast improvement over the last set.

Demon Quest vol 1 of 5

Anyways I’d drop an e-mail to Mike’s comics right away if you don’t want to wait for boxed stuff.

Well the BBC has decided to state the obvious

BBC Director General Mark Thompson has admitted the corporation was guilty of a ‘massive’ Left-wing bias in the past.

The TV chief also admitted there had been a ‘struggle’ to achieve impartiality and that staff were ‘ mystified’ by the early years of Margaret Thatcher’s government.

Tell me this doesn’t sound like Mika on Monday totally confused about the Glenn Beck restoring honor rally.

Speaking of saying things aloud that everyone already knew

My review of the Boxed Set of Tom Bakers return as the Doctor in Hornet’s Nest, which was long delayed by Lent is available at Amazon.com here.

It was worth the wait to get all five parts together and well worth the price.

Amazon has a pretty reasonable price on the set, but of course I got my copy from the friendly people at Mike’s comics.

Sometime around 1978 I was channel surfing the way we used to in the days before Cable: (We turned the knob) and on Channel 12 in Rhodie Island I found a strange TV show with a fellow with a long scarf traveling in a blue box.

I thought it was cool but didn’t note the time but several months later on another Saturday I turned on the TV and found the very same episode on the very same channel. Shortly after that I discovered Channel 2 and I was hooked.

I was big into history and that episode not only took place in the past but took place in 15th century Italy. You couldn’t find a combination more likely to attract me. If I had managed to find the episode before or the episode afterward I might not have been so excited, but the Masque of Mandragora started me off and the rest was history.

It’s a good episode but not my favorite, it’s not even my favorite episode of season 14 (The Deadly Assassin) but because it was my first experience of the character it holds a special place to me.

Imagiane my surprise and delight when I discovered that BBC Worldwide has all four episodes available for free viewing online. They don’t allow an embed but the direct link is here if you want to give it a shot.

You will have to set up an English Proxy Server if you want to watch it.
