Conclusion: I really enjoyed it.I prefer this to "new" who.Less special effect's & more story.There is an honesty present -when one of the actor's get's a line wrong,it is left in,not edited out.Everything today is too slick.The Key of Marinus is Awesome & rival's Tom Bakers key of time.I quite forget it is...
Conclusion: In 2005 Doctor Who returned after so long an absence and they way RTD carries on, you would be forgiven to wonder if there was any Doctor Who before it!!! The Time Meddler is a brilliant story of it's time. Peter Butterworth is perfectly cast as the bumbling Monk.
Conclusion: One of the fully remaining Hartnell stories makes it on to DVD... I saw this for the first time back in 1993 on BBC 2 repeats and it's what got me hooked into the program. It began expanding the who universe, letting the viewer see a tiny bit information about the Doctors past, and the Monk was one...
Space helmets for cows, and the Doctor aquires a new habit.

Conclusion: Season 2. The Doctor is continuing with his peripatetic lifestyle, and the Tardis materialises on the Northumbrian coast in 1066. Norways King Hardrada has sent out a fleet of ships to scout out the Saxon's defences, prior to a full scale invasion.
Conclusion: the time meddler is a great episode from the william hartnell era. the 1st doctor and companions viki and steven taylor end up in 1066and they find a watch, a gramophone and a toaster. what could be more mysterious.
Conclusion: The past forty years have been kind to the Time Meddler. The slower pace of the drama compared to todays Doctor Who works in this stories favour. You have time to enjoy Peter Butterworths playful performance as the timelord meddling monk.
Conclusion: If anyone is a bit unsure about dipping into the Hartnell era of Doctor Who then 'The Time Meddler' is definitely a way in. A fantastic story, even compared to today's technologically driven standards, Hartnell impresses as the Doctor.
