Dude only lists five easter eggs... I'm guessing there are more. Like that missing episode of "Web of Fear" playing on a TV screen in the background for a full 25 minutes.

Just watched The Caves of Androzani for the first time in like 8 years. Damn I get why that story is ranked as the best. Not because it’s a good story, because, actually, it’s really muddled and hard to follow to be honest. But it is by far one of the best made classic stories ever.

The direction, the lighting, the dialogue, the action, the bloody absolutely Stella performances from Davison and the guy playing Jek. Honestly with the witty dialogue and final triumph in performance from Davison, it was like watching a different doctor. It’s just so well made. I don’t understand how basically no other stories from this era look or feel like this. It’s so drenched in atmosphere it’s palpable. Fantastic watch

I put that down to Robert Holmes, who I think understood how the Doctor's character worked more than Eric Saward every really did.

And that I put down to JNT hiring directors based more on how he got on with them, not how good their work was. He was kind of infamous for it, from what I've read.

Could someone photoshop an image of a barrow full of lungs for me? I'm a bit busy at the moment.
