What Is This?

This was originally a solely Doctor Who Revisit podcast episode list. I moved it from its parent page to a dedicated page on 2022-09-13 because it had grown monstrously unwieldy. Eventually, it will be merged with my old media catalogue spreadsheet, which even predates the internet, and encompass all my reviews of geekery, not just Doctor Who.

Doctor Who Revisit? I'm glad you asked, you see I enjoy New Who (2005--), but grew up watching and loving Old Who (1963--1989). However, I wasn't born when the series began in 1963, my family didn't even own a television until the early 70s and while repeat broadcasts enabled me to catch up with some stories I initially missed, it seems inevitable that I may have skipped a few during its exceedingly long run.

So, Omega knows what possessed me, in 2014 I decided to rewatch the entirety of the classic series and tape my thoughts on each story. At the time of writing, I've been doing this for so long that I've renamed the rewatch several times (the preceding official title was The Mammoth Sessions—because it sounded metal and mammoths are cool), changed the planned schedule (schedule? What schedule? Don't make me laugh), and succumbed to long hiatuses, ennui, and sulks. Despite these setbacks, I have been rewatching the 1963--1989 show in chronological order... like a madman.

What order should you enjoy my above reviews? Appropriately, for a list which began as a result of my rewatch of an old TV drama about an eccentric time traveller, and because linear time is just so passe, I'd personally opt for a rather more cavalier pick'n'mix approach.
