Another Treat For Fans
The BBCi has recently webcast another animated adventure featuring our favorite Time Lord. This one, the Scream of the Shalka, had all the earmarks of those classic 3rd Doctor (Jon Pertwee) tales: Earth in mortal danger, military seeking the Doctor's somewhat coerced help, and, after a fashion, The Master. Just like Paul McGann's BBCi webcast of The Shada, this one captured my imagination. Richard E. Grant steps into the role as the new Doctor. (9th, perhaps?) Plopped down on Earth to help battle a new race of nasties - the Shalka - bent on taking over the world, the Doctor picks up a cool new companion and does his bit for humankind. Although not as deeply bound to Who lore as The Shada, the Scream of the Shalka was nonetheless good story telling. Plus, on my short list of candidates for the 9th Doctor, Richard E. Grant!
