Over two evenings last week, BBC Four repeated the 1976 Fourth Doctor story, The Hand of Fear. This was arranged in tribute to the late Elisabeth Sladen, as it was her final regular appearance, and it was excellent to see Classic Doctor Who back on the BBC, even though it was to mark such a very sad passing.
Repeat showings of these wonderful stories are very rare these days, but they needn't be. BBC Four is perfectly suited to showing these episodes, and if this happened on a regular basis then many fans, even the casual fans, would be very happy indeed!
What if BBC Four regularly repeated the older episodes? I'm sure I'm not the only fan of the show who would jump at the opportunity to see these stories.
We, the undersigned, would like to see more Classic Dr Who repeats on the BBC.
