A is for Adventures.


Welcome Bipeds.
I am starting this month-long A-Z journey with A for Adventure.

Begin The Horror!

From 1963, to the past, present and future, Adventure has been a massive part of the Doctor's life. Except for, of course, those few moments where he's either dead, or unconscious, or recovering from shock, trauma, pain and regeneration. Or when he's old, or simply not there.
I have picked out for your tiny, putrid brains, what I think is one of the Greatest and most challenging adventure. seen in Doctor Who.


The key to universal balance lies within this one perfect cube.
In which case, mankind is doomed and we're all going to die.

Six stories all bigger than the last and leading up to one of the darkest and strangest conclusions that the series has ever seen so far, 
The Key to Time Season is made up of 'The Ribos Operation' which sees the terrifying Shrivendal, surviving in the caves on the planet Ribos, along with the incredibly annoying, screaming Graff Vynda-K. 'The Pirate planet' which is both comic and quite deeply depressing to watch.  
'The Stones Of Blood,' which has mediocrity, glowing stones, over the top theatrical performances and wrinkled female humans talking about sausage sandwiches!(Oh, the Horror!) 'The Androids Of Tara,' which is about robot replica's being used in a dangerous political plot, 'The Power Of Kroll'  which was just plain wrong. And the final part, 'The Armageddon Factor' which featured an interplanetary war between the two twin planets of Atrios and Zeos. This Season saw the Doctor and K9 given a new companion, Romanadvoratrelundar, or Romana for short. Romana is another Time Lord, sent on a quest to find the six segments of the Key To Time in order to restore the balance of the universe by The White Guardian, who are part of a race of beings more powerful than the Time Lords. Before embarking on their quest, The  Doctor is given only one warning: Beware The Black Guardian.

And so concludes File A.
Your Lord and Master
Master Meglos

    1. I welcome your comment Maria. I think it's excellent that through your teen, you got back into Doctor Who. Hope you're enjoying the current series as much as you did back then.

  2. Well done my Lil man.
    Good start to the challenge.

  3. Welcome to the A to Z Master Meglos it is great to see you.

    Will we see Penguins I do some Penguin links later on in the alphabet but they have bicycle wheels on their heads.

    1. Thank you Rob.
      I'm always open to the idea of Penguins. Where there is life, there is Penguins. Not sure if there are any on Doctor Who though.

  4. My favourite Dr Who's have always been the ones that lead on to the next, or at least are in continuity. I may just have to do a google search for these and give them a good watching!
    Looking forward to the rest of your AtoZ!

    1. Bumferry, then you will enjoy 'Trial of a Timelord' (1986-Colin Baker), which is 14 episodes. Most of the black and white episodes, all consist of continuing storylines.

      Thank you. :)

  5. I love THE KEY TO TIME episodes.
    Lalla Ward was always my favorite Romana.

    1. Lalla Ward was definitely the superior Romana.

      The Key to Time stories had some of the most interesting ideas and stood out from the usual Doctor Who episodes.
