CHUMBLEYMANIA   Leave a comment


(With “Galaxy 4”, we reach Part 18 of our Name Dropping journey through the First Doctor’s character arc as represented by his changing ways of addressing Steven: in which we fid that there’s still some turkey left over from Christmas.)

Having sat through this turkey, one of the few things I can find the energy to say about “Galaxy 4” is that sometimes the junkers in the BBC archives showed some good taste in their choices and that Terry Burnett should have kept it quiet that he he held episode 3 rather than returning it to the BBC in 2011.

How could anyone ever have supposed that the Chumblies could be another Daleks success? Chumbleymania?

However, there’s still the matter of what the Doctor calls Steven in this story: my boy x 4, my dear young man x 1, dear boy x 4, young man x 5 and my dear boy x 1.
