Doctor Who Serial xx – Dimensions in Time

Part One Jon Pertwee looks great! I have no idea who this person Pertwee is talking to, but it’s just the intro. Wow, those models of Hartnell and Troughton are terrible. As is this version of the theme, terrible. Tom Baker is great, “the grumpy one and the flautist.” McCoy’s hair is too long, the hippy! Wow, that doesn’t look like 2013. I feel like they’re trying to smoosh in too many lines for too many people. Susan looks good. I forgot how much I hate Peri’s terrible accent. I’m voting for Big Ron. Part Two “We’re helping Children in Need in Crinkly Bottom” wait, what??? Of course, Bessy makes… Read More »Doctor Who Serial xx – Dimensions in Time

Doctor Who Serial 097 – The Invasion of Time

Part One Leela, don’t be a jerk. Why is everyone a jerk to K9? The Doctor is rubbing off on you. Oh, the Doctor is taking his job as President. Part Two That seems dumb, trying to take Leela against her will. Oh Doctor! Don’t break the fourth wall. The Doctor is evil!!! E–VILLE Part Three The Doctor seems to be as reliable of a president as Donald Trump. That pink and pink outfit is amazing. How are Time Lords so absolutely useless. No idea how to survive outside for a few days. I’m not saying I’m a wilderness master, but I think I could figure out shelter, food and… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 097 – The Invasion of Time

Doctor Who Serial 096 – Underworld

Part One Doctor, don’t tell your friends to shut up. You can be such an asshole. “Time ships of the Gods!” I like their mellow gun. I want a gun you can shoot at someone and it’s as if they took a deep toke.1 These people have regenerated a thousand times. That’s pretty cool. So why do the Time Lords have a limit on regeneration? “He’s my second best friend, aren’t you, K9?” “Affirmative.” I don’t like dogs, I’m a cat person, but I would totally take a K9. Leela being angry about getting stoned against her will is fucking hilarious. But also consent is important. Unrelated, my house smells… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 096 – Underworld

Doctor Who Serial 095 – The Sun Makers

Part One Pluto, the distant future. The planet has been terraformed and is now orbited by artificial suns, provided by the rapacious company who ruthlessly exploit the relocated human workforce. The Doctor, Leela, and K9 arrive and befriend a luckless drone worker, but they must flee with him to the dark undercity… Umm, actually, Pluto isn’t a planet. This episode seems to be an anti-tax creed. I was about to comment on the Doctor’s comment on machine minds being feeble, but then K9 proved him wrong. Hooray for K9. The rooftop scene where the Doctor and Leela save the over-taxed dude from suicide is hilarious and wonderful. Oh, he called… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 095 – The Sun Makers

Doctor Who Serial 094 – Image of the Fendahl

Part One These scientists have obviously never heard of time travel. That skull could have belonged to a time traveller. Oooo-wee-oooo Well that is why K9 isn’t in this episode. The Doctor broke him. Leela’s wearing the most boob-a-licious dress I’ve seen in a while. How come the Doctor never wears such a low cut top. I think Tom Baker could’ve pulled it off. There’s something so lovely about Tom Baker’s voice. Part Two How are there so many people in the Whoniverse who can convince other people not to call the cops? Part Three The skull is hypnotizing the Doctor, take your hand off of it. Part Four I… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 094 – Image of the Fendahl

Doctor Who Serial 093 – The Invisible Enemy

Part One That’s the weirdest design for the bridge of a shuttle craft. Also, are they in la-z-boys? Oh, the Doctor switched back to the main control room. That’s nice. Except he’s calling it the “number two control room.” I disagree. C’mon! Have a drink before you shoot people. That’s the least you could do. Damn, Leela, that hat looks good on you. That knife looked like rubber. I needed a “BOING” sound effect. Part Two I forgot that K9 shows up at some point in this story. I can’t wait for that. Also, really digging this soundtrack while the Doctor is in hospital. That receptionist is so rude. “Computer… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 093 – The Invisible Enemy

Doctor Who Serial 092 – Horror of Fang Rock

Part One Yar! There be a fog coming up! Excellent hat, Doctor. Once again, The Doctor is accused of murdering a character. It seems pretty cliché, but worse that they did it two stories in a row. They could have prevented that. Part Two Doctor Who characters need to learn to believe the eyes of other characters in Doctor Who. Part Three The gentleman from the upper chamber is an asshole. I like the man from the Commons. Then again, the Doctor himself is a bit of an asshole. Leela’s callousness is fantastic! Part Four He’s dead, Jim. Oh, we’re seeing Rutans for the first time. They don’t seem to… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 092 – Horror of Fang Rock

Doctor Who Serial 091 – The Talons of Weng-Chiang

Part One Let’s start with racism. Holy shit. All the supporting Chinese characters are played by Chinese actors, but the main one is played by John Bennett, the whitest British actor you can imagine. I am tempted to just skip this episode, but it is considered to be one of the best. From now on we will be referring to Weng-Chiang as Racist Depiction of Asian Person. That woman plays an impeccable witch. “Carrying a body, a European body,” at least they’re right about cops being racist. Rat hair, long rat hair, that seems improbable, but apparently Racist Depiction of Asian Person is the “god of abundance” and can “make… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 091 – The Talons of Weng-Chiang

Doctor Who Serial 090 – The Robots of Death

Part One That’s pretty heavy foreshadowing. Robots are going to rip someone’s arm off. “That’s silly” says Leela as she learned about how the TARDIS works. She’s right. She’s very very right. Oh my god, these hats are divine. Shit, that robot has red eyes, that can only mean one thing… ARMS ABOUT TO RIPPED OFF! Big hat commander is talking into his Apple Watch. Damn, the dude was strangled, no arms ripped off. If your buddy gives you an alibi, don’t throw a hole in it. Part Two That last episode led to a two hour nap. Not sure what that means for part two, but here we go….… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 090 – The Robots of Death

Doctor Who Serial 089 – The Face of Evil

Part One There’s a great god named Zynon! I’m down for this. We’re meeting Leela a lot quicker than I expected we would. I like their Jelly Baby exchange quite a bit. Leela gained trust in the Doctor quite quickly. I love the ridiculous priest. So these dudes are praying to an alien who crashed on their planet. Cool. Tom Baker’s head a-la Mount Rushmore is great. Part Two “I like the hat, very fetching” was pretty much what I was thinking. Is that the Doctor’s voice on the radio? Okay, so they confirmed it. Hahaha, flinging the Cybermat at the dude, and making him run away screaming was delightful.… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 089 – The Face of Evil
