For fans “of a certain age” who were weened on Tom Baker on PBS oh so many years ago, The Hand of Fear is a seminal story. It was the first story that taught fans that ultimately Doctor Who is a show as much about change as anything else. Sarah Jane leaving? Not so sure about that.
These movements of characters both into and out of the program are inflection points upon which endless discussions turn. Amy and Rory leaving? Doctor Who will never be same again!
Now you get it. And we’ll be okay. I hope. Remember Eldrad must dance! And so must you.
As with previous weeks cap additions, those for The Hand of Fear aren’t so new new as much improved on breadth and quality.
I wonder what next weeks cap addition will be?
