Doctor Who: Dragonfire Part 1. 23rd November 1987.
This is the latest in the series of Ko-Fi sponsored posts, this one from Ade, who asked me to explain what was going on at the end of the first episode of the Doctor Who story Dragonfire.
So, after careful consideration, here is my full answer:
Buggered if I know mate.
Thank you all very much, see you next time.
Wait, that’s not enough? Tough crowd.
So there are basically three versions of what is meant to be going on at the end of that first episode, what was written, what was filmed and what was unexpectedly retconned to have been happening a mere 26 years later.
The former, according to writer Ian Briggs and his novelisation of the story, was that the Doctor would be crawling along a narrow ledge, that got smaller and smaller until he was forced to desperately hang by his fingers over a precipice.
In realisation... well, season 24 is very much a recovery year for the show. Unexpectedly kept on as producer with no leading man and no scripts, it’s somewhat remarkable John Nathan-Turner managed to put out any episodes at all, let alone 14 that show a steady course correction across the year thanks to new script editor Andrew Cartmel. But it’s still a generally unpopular year full of many odd production decisions, seen at best as a necessary stepping stone to the new golden era of the final two McCoy years.
It's time to get animated!
