    Default BF 178: 1963 Fanfare For The Common Men



    If you remember the Sixties, they say, then you canít have been there.

    The Doctor remembers the Sixties. Thatís why heís taking Nyssa on a trip back to November 1963. Back to where it all began. Back to the birth of the biggest band in the history of British music. Back to see those cheeky lads from Liverpool...

    Mark, James and Korky. The Common Men. The boys who made the Sixties swing with songs like Oh, Wonít You Please Love Me?, Just Count To Three and Who Is That Man.

    The Doctor remembers the Sixties. And thereís something very wrong with the Sixties, if the Beatles no longer existÖ
    Doctor Who starts to travel back to 1963 for the 50th Anniversary, what do you reckon to the start of the celebrations?
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    I liked it. Doctor Who seems to work really well when it pastiches something else, such as Hammer Horror. But who'd have thought 'Doctor Who Meets The Rutles' would have been a big success?

    The tunes are catchy too. Worryingly so. 'Who are you? I'm the maaan from above!' I'm sure it must be the alien influence affecting my brain.

    I haven't finished it yet, so unless it all goes wrong in the final episode, this will be a very strong and fun story.

    I agree about the songs and music- really nicely done without being too obviously based on famous Beatles songs.

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.
