If you remember from last time, Hamnet (the Tudor boy trapped in the stone) is trying to get me back in time. To be able to improve in our time travelling techniques, we are watching Doctor Who to pick up tips. Last time, we had gone forward one week to April 1974. Hamnet was insufferable. He bragged on and on about what a time travelling magician he was – then it happened and to be honest the insult maker was lost for words. I exaggerate; he was lost for words for a short time.
I am having problems here deciding whether to give you the news or not. The genius inside me says that I should so that you will have something to look forward to. Firstly, Doctor Who does not end when “The Monster of Peladon” finishes. Hamnet took us forward in time to see “Planet of Spiders”. It was whilst watching the last episode of “Planet of Spiders” on June 8th, 1974 that Hamnet got the shock of his life.
I expect you are wondering what happened on June 8th 1974 to shock Hamnet so much. We saw The Doctor die. He had been fatally affected by Metebelis Crystals. Hamnet was in such a state. He had thought The Doctor could teach him to get back to his own time. He was sitting there sobbing in his stone prison whilst Sarah Jane Smith sobbed on the television; then something else happened. I had heard about this happening before but as I had not seen it myself, I didn’t want to give Hamnet false hopes. It is called Regeneration. Hamnet and I watched as The Doctor changed into what looked like another person. It was still The Doctor but he looked totally different. Hamnet now believes that The Doctor is a far more powerful magician than Corpsehound. He is sure that if he watches The Doctor for long enough, he will discover all his secrets. Hamnet is positive that by learning from The Doctor, he will be able to fight Master Corpsehound and release himself from the stone. Only time will tell. Meanwhile, if anyone knows how to improve Hamnet’s time travelling skills into the past please comment at willblyton.com
