Tardis Talk


John, old Star Trek versus new? I know what you mean about the appeal of old Trek’s Styrofoam aesthetic, but it was very much a product of its time. That approach would be impossible these days – everyone would just laugh (something that was apparently already a problem for the cast back in the 1960s). Dr Who? Oh yes. That took low budget to new depths, although it was still a great show. I watched the very first episode (with William Hartnell as the first – and best – Doctor), in fact. That’s one of my earliest TV memories and tales of the Tardis became, of course, a Saturday afternoon tea time treat for years.
