Articles on DW from the Spectator

Gareth Roberts, rummaging though the back archive of the Spectator magazine, observed that they had some articles regarding Doctor Who - the selection's not great (their TV critic in the '70s seems to have had a congenital distaste for all children's television), but there's a few pieces of interest. An item from 1973 in which a devoted fan bewails the liberalism of "The Green Death" (it's a Tory magazine, so a nice counterpoint to the "conservatives love the Pertwee era" narrative). A piece about electronic music written by composer Stanley Myers. Here's a thoughtful item about the cancellation of the programme in a 1993 retrospective. And Stuart Hood pondering the end of the Troughton era (written just after the first episode of "The Space Pirates", evidently). There's also a few post-2005 television reviews, too, if you're so inclined.
