One fat geek's SUCCESSFUL attempt to regenerate into a not-so-fat geek by watching the entirety of Doctor Who while walking on a treadmill
Sad news today for fans of Classic Who: actor Peter Miles passed away last week at the age of 89. He was best known for his role as Davros' second-in-command Nyder in Genesis of the Daleks. He also appeared in Invasion of the Dinosaurs as the scientist who brought the giant lizards to London, but for me his best appearance was as Dr. Lawrence in The Silurians. He was absolutely riveting in that story as he faced off against the Third Doctor. The scene in which Lawrence is infected by the Silurian plague and attacks the Brigadier is one of the best moments of the story, sold entirely on Miles' strong performance. It is at least a comfort to know that Miles' passing was peaceful. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.
On a happier note, today I saw the last of Mel. So let's talk about that.
