As we approach the 60th anniversary of Doctor Who, it’s time to take a look back at the beginning of it all. In this episode we go back to a panel from Chicago TARDIS 2016. In it we discuss William Hartnell the man and the first Doctor. We talk about the situation behind his involvement in the show and turbulent times in his later years. We discuss his performance as the Doctor and what he has brought to the role that has stuck with the series ever since. We also get into a discussion about the early years of the program. We discuss how its similar and different to Doctor Who as well and what elements from those years would no longer work and things that we think would that has been abandoned.
As this is a con panel, there will be no five-minute controversy this week.
This week Bill Albert, Steve Manfred, and Nyssa Makepeace join the cast.
