Wow! Now that I have seen the special and Spearhead from Space I have more comments. First, I wonder if that was the first time the Doctor used the alias John Smith?

Second, did I sleep thru the special talking about Sarah Jane Smith as companion? I know they talked about her in the new companions special that aired prior to the 3rd Doctor special. But in the 3rd Doctor special it seem as tho they got as far as Jo Grant and stopped.

Third, wasn't it interesting that the first story for the 3rd Doctor has the same villains as the first story of the reboot (9th Doctor, i.e. the Nestenes).

Anyway I enjoyed it & hope all of you did too.

Finally on the BBC America site it tells us the episode that will be shown as part of the 3rd Doctor special. It's "Spearhead from Space." There are a number of firsts for this story. It was the first Jon Pertwee episode, the first in the 70s, and the first Doctor Who in color. At the end of the last of the Patrick Troughton episodes, the Time Lords made the Doctor regenerate and exiled him to Earth.

Those of you who have only seen New Who episode will have heard of the Brigadier but never met him. Here's your chance to meet Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart as he and UNIT are regulars in the beginning of the 3rd Doctor's episodes.

Really looking forward to the special. I have seen a number of Jon Pertwee episodes but it has been years. Hope all of you check it out and ENJOY! emoticon
