The Mighty 200-Odd Adventure Hooks

Siskoid presents The Retread Campaign - remake classic adventures, possibly entire seasons in order.

After all, it was good enough for Peter Cushing...

(Idle notion, the Cushing "Doctor Who" in colour remakes of non-Dalek stories. Doctor Who And THE CYBERMEN complete with Arctic base, half a dozen actors familiar from the Hammer rep company, and Moonbase-style Cybermen...)

And since I've looked at numbers 1 and 200, to mark Post 222, what's number 101 like?

The introduction of Adric!

Okay, let's see what we can do. (100 was The Crusade, which I've totally done.)

The Sleeping Planet
(Because why not use discarded alternate titles which are better than the ones used?)
The TARDIS slams down on a planet with a strange fluctuating gravity, and it's not alone as the scanners pick up a distress signal from a downed starliner. The descendants of the survivors are besieged by the sinister Mist Men, who keep a shocking secret of their own...

  1. Funny you should mention Cushing. I've long been sorely tempted to run a DW campaign using Cushing as the First Doctor and with everything else open to re-imagining. Players would create their own incarnations of the Doctor and companions. Non-Dalek threats like the Cybermen will have new spins. Sort of an "Ultimate Doctor Who" approach, I suppose.
