The tricky thing about watching someone slowly get into Doctor Who (Norie is in season 4 of New Who right now), is wondering how best to provide some of the important backstory and references, like the Brig, the significance of Sarah Jane, and Rassilon, and at the same time resisting the urge to pull out fifty years of continuity.  I stand by my old belief that the best introduction to Classic Who for someone coming from New Who is probably “The Five Doctors” because it’s One, Two, and Three together with Five, along with some of the major companions (and cameos from others) in a story format closer to the modern episodes than the serializations.  It’s especially helpful with “Time Crash”, since that provides an introduction to Five.  Of course that means missing Four (“Heresy!” the peanut gallery cries), Six, Seven, and Eight (gorgeous, glorious Eight).  Of course, the best approach would probably be to let things run its course, or else, I will end up like Edna.

I really should have had the foresight to say something about “Love and Monsters”, though.

Why Israel's Terror Alert for Europe is so Worrying

Brig. Gen. (res.) Yehiam Sasson, former head of the Israeli National Security Council’s Counter-Terrorism Bureau, told Arutz Sheva that the Bureau’s issuance of a travel warning to western Europe signals an innovation that hasn’t occurred before.
"The travel warning of course also includes the traditional countries like Jordan, Morocco, Egypt and to a grave degree Sinai which has turned into a terror kingdom. But it also includes nations like southern Thailand and others. The innovation is that ahead of the (Jewish month of) Tishrei holidays, western Europe enters the picture," said Sasson.
The warning particularly notes the danger posed by the roughly 2,000 Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists who hail from western states, who it is feared may return home to carry out attacks on Jewish targets. That fear was illustrated in the case of Mehdi Nemmouche, the French-Algerian former ISIS fighter and torturer suspected in the deadly Brussels Jewish Museum shooting.
"These are activists of whom a portion of them came from western countries, and a portion of them converted to Islam in western countries," noted Sasson to Arutz Sheva. "The threat…is because there are infrastructures and the potential for the flourishing of this phenomenon in Europe."
"Islamic State activists are in Europe - that frightens many countries, and also should frighten us," assessed the former counter-terror chief.
Sasson reasoned that there was no need to cancel flights abroad, but caution should be exercised “on the background of the rising wave of anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish hatred, particularly on the background of radical Islamic religious awakening.”
"We must raise the awareness and act on the guidelines published by the Counter-Terrorism Bureau," warned Sasson.
"Today there is motivation to attack Israelis throughout the globe and also in western Europe," added the general. "You can travel, but you need to act with awareness by not standing out as an Israeli for example, by avoiding political confrontations, and by not visiting or traveling to unknown places with unknown people."
