Understanding Doctor Who Part X: Indexing the Past

Two things struck me after I compiled the Doctor Who extravaganza of the last couple weeks. 1) NINE parts? That's an odd number! And 2) there were things I didn't cover because, well, I'd covered them before a year or two ago. In other words, this is my Cheap Part Ten - links to older essays that have something to teach. I'll pepper it with odd Doctor Who pics I have on hand to keep it interesting to long-time readers.
