No Tom Baker episode which leads me to think that there might be a weekend dedicated to his best or most popular episodes like they did a few years ago. Episodes such as Talons Of Weng Chiang, The Robots Of Death, Brain Of Morbius aswell as the whole of his first season

I think they missed out the Pyramids of Mars in their original comment. They are showing Doctor Who revisited and if you look at the days they are showing it in the original comment goes Saturday Sunday Saturday Saturday Sunday. The missing Sunday is the Pyramids of Mars.

I've only got Freeview TV so I cannot receive 'Watch'.
Happily - I've got all those stories on DVD anyway!

Repeating the same old shows week in week out is imaginative?

Fingers crossed, eh?

Good selection of episodes. Vengeance On Varos and The Aztecs are the only two I don't have on DVD.

For Earthshock they've given the director and cast of Four To Doomsday

For Varos they've given the director and cast of Attack of the Cybermen

Wonder if the ban on dalek stories being aired is still on the go - America got to see remembrance of the daleks-one of the best McCoy stories and the UK gets battlefield (One of the worst McCoy stories )

As some of you will know UKTV (a pay channel here in NZ & Australia) has been showing some of the best stories from each Doctor (1 Doctor a month) every Sunday since the start of 2013. Interesting in that I've noticed none of the stories of the classic series are of very good quality (all pre 2000 stock), i.e. all not of the quality that has been released on DVD.
I was kind of hoping with the advent of the 50th anniversary tied in with the completion of all the old shows on DVD (well almost), that channels devoted to old stuff or UK TV around the world, would start screening every surviving complete story from the start 5 nights a week.
..Maybe I was expecting too much.

I would have preferred Silver nemesis

I have enjoyed watching the classics but some of the production values are laughable compared to today's.
