4.0 von 5 Sternen A tear, Dr. Sandifer? 14. April 2013
Von John Wirenius - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Philip Sandifer's read on the Pertwee era is challenging, largely because he finds the era challenging in itself--split between a glam rock aesthetic and military-cum-sci-fi thriller, by turns. Also, it's his least favorite era (hard to believe, in view of the shaggy run of scripts Colin Baker manfully struggled with, but there you are).

It's a good read, though, finding nuggets of brilliance in episodes not generally thought to have them, and critiquing fan favorites. His salutes to David Whitaker and Robert Holmes convince, and his reading of and appreciation for Katy Manning and Pertwee himself (though not always when you'd expect it) repay reading. Sandifer continues to find the alchemy within Doctor Who, even at its most earthbound, drawing a convincing link between the series and William Blake, and coming up with a great theory of the Time Lords as they function, which explains the earthbound exile of the Doctor. Great fun, in short for the fan. I miss the warmth, though, which he brought to the two previous "Now My Doctor" essays, and which is lacking in this third.

4.0 von 5 Sternen What Is It About Pertwee? 12. Mai 2014
Von Timothy Haugh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I find almost anyone who writes on the Jon Pertwee era of Doctor Who baffling. These are the years when the show became truly successful. These are the years that pretty much guaranteed that the show would last for more than half a century. And yet, these are the years that so many “critics” of the show find most wanting even as particular shows and even seasons are held up for praise. I don’t get it.

I kind of ignore it when Tat Wood and Lawrence Miles are disparaging in About Time. They call themselves fans even as they don’t seem to really like the show. I started thinking about it more when I read Neil Perryman’s Adventures with the Wife in Space. By a large margin, Sue Perryman rates the Pertwee era the highest (with season 7 being by far the highest rated season) even as she dislikes Pertwee: “I won’t be disappointed to see him go.” Then, along comes Sandifer.

He makes no secret of his dislike of the Pertwee era, repeating that mantra in almost every essay to the point of tediousness. On the other hand, he generally makes an effort to find the positive in the show, and I respect that. He clearly makes himself out as someone who is a fan. His main complaints seem to fall into three categories: he doesn’t really like Pertwee as an actor, he doesn’t like the concept of the show during this period (glam meets action hero), and he doesn’t like the blatant male chauvinism that runs through the series at this point. All of which is fair, albeit a matter of taste to a certain extent.

Here’s the thing: though Sandifer seems to be aware of judging a show too much because of the period in which it’s made, that seems to me to be the trap he’s fallen into here. More than any other era, this time on Doctor Who is a mirror of the times. As much as some people want to push the UNIT stories into some imaginary future, they are basically ‘70’s shows through and through. That means both good and back and, generally, odd. You have to accept it and just go with it if you’re going to enjoy these shows. And there is much to enjoy here.

The same is true of Sandifer’s book. Though I don’t really understand what comes across as his almost visceral dislike of Pertwee, he is almost as desperate to remind us that he is always a fan even when he is being critical. For that, I can forgive much. And, even as I don’t really care about most of the beyond-the-episodes Doctor Who material he discusses (e.g. novels and the like), he does find ways to make it interesting. I’m even reading one of the novels he discussed, which is something I’ve never done before. (So far, I’m not sure it’s been a good idea. Still, he got me to do it.) So, overall, I’ve found this reading valuable and I suspect I will continue to see what Sandifer has to say.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must for any serious fan of Doctor Who 5. April 2013
Von JoanneM - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Phil Sandifer's books on the various incarnations of Doctor Who make a refreshing change from the usual churn of backstage tittle-tattle and continuity nitpicks. He reviews each story in its wider social and political context, seeing Doctor Who as a vivid reflection of a turbulent time, and often sends this reader hurrying back to her DVD collection to rewatch 'classic' episodes with a fresh eye. His analysis is always thought provoking and if nobody would agree with all of it, then everybody will find something to enjoy. Who fandom is fortunate to have such an erudite and intelligent writer focussing on a programme he so evidently loves. I can't recommend this book - and his previous tomes on William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton - highly enough. Enjoy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen And so we get to Third... 29. Dezember 2013
Von The Smiling Stallion Inn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Once again, Philip Sandifer brilliantly and astutely examines an era of Doctor Who in cultural and aesthetic movements, exploring characteristics and aspects of the series during a particular time period as he points out strengths and weaknesses of that era in a most canny and unique perspective. He highlights the roles of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and Jo Grant as portrayed by Nicholas Courtney and Katy Manning, the parts they have to play, and explores some of the potential symbolism of The Third Doctors in a William Blake style, although this does veer off...he has some problems with the Third Doctor. It's not his favorite era of Doctor Who, and with the arguments that he brings up--the Monty Python spoof of the UNIT era before it even began, the moral bankruptcy of some of the writers in claiming to support groups they undermine, and the artificiality of the glam era...some of his arguments do seem to hit home here. And yet he is involved in Doctor Who, and he does provide redemptive readings whenever he can.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow a very good read..... 16. Mai 2013
Von Vinson J. Chin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have read many Dr Who books in my life but I must say that the books in this series are mentally stimulating and fun to read. I found the first volume to be less interesting only because I think Dr Who got interesting for me when the 2nd Doctor took over. The essays in the books are amusing and make you think about aspects of the show that I had no idea were important. It is just something you will have to get if you like the classic series
