So awhile ago I ranted about how disappointing Britbox was. And just when I was going to cancel after the beta-testing ended, they plunked all of Classic Who there. So we ponied up the first month's fee. (Thus inspiring my re-watch posts.)

Well tonight I was loafing around YT and discovered clip for An Adventure in Time and Space. Something I'd entirely missed due to my absence from general fandom (and the general suckiness of Tumblr* at spreading DW news).

The clips looked amazing so I immediately scoured the internet for a way to watch it. Netflix failed me, Amazon only turned up a Blue-ray copy after some aggressive searching and IMDb was utter fail at linking. Belatedly I thought, well let me search Britbox. I pasted it into the search expecting nothing. So it took me a minute to figure out what was happening when the site not only turned up a result but went ahead and started playing it. There may have been an unearthly fangirl squee when my brain finally shifted into gear.

The family ended up watching it as well. It was lovely and sad. I knew some about the history of course. All that time spent on the forums weren't for naught. But it's different seeing it dramatized. I never knew how much Harnell loved the show. It was a bit heartbreaking.

DH is now determined to watch all the Hartnell eps on Britbox. (DH is movie crier and I know this got to him too.) So I guess my re-watch list is growing. (Though these don't count as rewatch, just a new-to-me.)


So you win this round, Britbox.




*And in other news: Tumblr sucks. (Sorry, had to get my quota in for the day.)
