A television review in Weekend on March 17 about ‘Doctor Who’ on the SciFi channel misstated the number of actors who played the title role in the original BBC series from 1963 to 1989 . . . It was seven actors, not eight.
The review also referred imprecisely to the reason the Nestene Consciousness, a life form from another planet, sought a source of new food, and it misstated the composition of a trash bin that swallowed a character. The life form’s protein planets were destroyed; it did not exhaust its food supply. The bin was plastic, not rubber.
Wet dreams for Trekkies all around!
RIP . . .
• Gene Pitney, rock ’n’ roll pioneer and one of the great, instantly recognizable voices of ’60s music. He worked with Bacharach and David, Phil Spector, and the Rolling Stones (he plays maracas on their first album). Yes, and “Twenty Four Hours from Tulsa” is still a fave rave on the Casa Diablo jukebox.
• Clay Osborne, one of the finest jazz vocalists in these parts for years. A consummate musician and mentor to many young singers and musicians, Clay was a major figure on the state’s club scene for years. A true gentleman and a true artist, he will be sorely missed.
