My favorite Dr. Who was and always will be the Fourth, played by Tom Baker. The Baker episodes are probably my favorite hokey, comic, sci-fi shows. "Would you care for a jelly baby?"

The earlier and later Doctors, only some of which I have seen, were never as fun to watch. Later incarnations' shows having less cheesy special effects didn't really make much difference to me. Also, some of the earlier and later Doctors struck me as a bit pretentious. Baker's pretensions were always intended to be objects of laughter.

I hope this digression in the thread won't be interpreted by moderators as a divergence into prohibited political speech?

I hope not. I'm learning stuff here. It's good to have a few peanuts with the popcorn every now and again.

My favourite Doctor Who was Sylvester McCoy. Not the best actor but he introduced a measure of mystery which worked extremely well and made the character much more interesting, with a real past.

Of the modern Doctors, the only one who was watchable at all was Ecclestone. The others are terrible, terrible attempts to copy some of their predecessors, not to mention the poor stories and the overly-humanity-centric bias of the whole show. I regard modern Doctor Who as a travesty.

Here's a B&W film shot to keep things on track

Nice one. Great composition, light, contrast and depth. Wouldn't have looked half as good in color.

Having tried this shot a few times in colour, I can confirm that.

Snow has fallen and I've had to say goodbye to my baby, now tucked away for the winter.

XP2 Super at ISO 100, of course:

I finally noticed that link of yours on how to develop XP2 in BW chemistry. I have much more respect for XP2 from your photos. Thanks for sharing yours notes from your experiments.

You're really getting some fantastic tones from that XP2. I've never used C41 B&W photos as it makes no sense for me - they're more expensive than most traditional B&W films and development instructions might be harder to find.

I agree. I've had a couple of rolls of expired XP2 super in my fridge for a while but I've just shot one roll at 100 ISO and when it warms up a bit I'll develop it in HC 110 to see what I get.

There's almost something "Robert Capa/Don McCullin" about that shot but without the bullets

Thanks. I had to clean the lens and camera after that shot.
