Part One Really? That’s how they regenerate Romana. She just chooses her body and wants to be Adria? No reasoning for why she was dying? “Well, it’s not a flying saucer.” No, Doctor, it’s a flying cone. Those mop wigs are horrendous. Second Romana kinda reminds me of Jodie Whittaker, except 12 years old. They’re on Skaro, who would’ve thought that would happen in an episode titled “Destiny of the Daleks.” Part Two I’m kinda glad this is a four part episode, the six parters drag. DAMN! That was the best Dalek intro in the series yet, crashing through the glass was incredible. Yes! Go Terry Nation! The effect was… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 104 – Destiny of the Daleks
Part One Here we are, the final story of the season. The end of Romana I, the end of the key to time. it starts with the worst chromakey I’ve seen on this show. The roof caves in, “it’s alright it’s alright.” Could they be more British? It’s nuclear war on Adria. Is that the name of the country? I bet the bad guys are gone. Looks like I’m right. The princess looks like a 12 year old. Poor K9. He doesn’t seem right and the Doctor klonks him on the nose. I think the Marshall is the Black Guardian. K9 is a good doggie. Part Two Well, I’m wrong… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 103 – The Key To Time Parts 21-26: The Armageddon Factor
Part One HAHAHA That hoverboat in the sped up film is hilarious. Companions… always getting kidnapped. You’d think that after the last story Romana would be more careful. More canoeing, but these guys don’t know how to canoe. J-Stroke! The green people in loincloths are going to flash Romana by accident. Doctor Who has a hard-on for colonialism. Part Two Gah, the portrayal of the aboriginal peoples of this planet is horrific. Kroll is amazing. Killing your enemy’s god is a bad idea. You’d never hear on Star Trek a crew member reply to a call to the bridge with, “NOW???” What a whiney asshole. Part Three Kroll’s power comes… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 102 – The Key To Time Parts 17-20: The Power Of Kroll
Part One Doctor Who should spend more time in the Doctor’s wardrobe. Wow, that outfit is horrific. I love purple, but I don’t love whatever that is. Romana is being stalked. I assume by a wild animal. Maybe the beast’s prey is naturally a disgusting purple? Hahaha! The beast is like the cross between a sloth, monkey, and a man in a gorilla suit. This knight is a creepy dude who wants to bone Romana. “Do what I say, or I shall have you flogged,” I think she wants him to flog her. Part Two Why does that bed have a human shaped cut out? Where the comfy material is… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 101 – The Key To Time Parts 13-16: The Androids of Tara
Part One That’s nice, the Doctor admitted that Earth is his favourite planet. I like this old lady who can’t remember any dates. The crow looks evil because crows are evil. Not one of these people seems not evil. Part Two It’s a Time Lord sacrifice, not a Human sacrifice. Wow, that old lady can’t remember a single line of hers. Part Three That feather outfit is extraordinary as old lady said. The old lady’s acting reminds me of William Hartnell, aka, bad. Part Four I feel that Vivan’s outfit was designed just so someone could paint her boobs silver. Haha! The Doctor’s wig is brilliant.
Part One Oh! This is the first one written by Douglas Adams! This guy looks like Phil Spector. I like Romana stealing the Doctor’s jelly babies. These guards are worse shots than storm troopers. Part Two That robot falcon is amazing. That air car looks a lot like a landspeeder from Star Wars. I don’t think I’ve seen the sonic screwdriver in a while. What a bunch of wankers! Mining other planets while people are alive on it. Why do the stormtroopers shoot so high? Part Three :( K9 killed the falcon. Part Four YAR! Walk the plank ye doctor! I like the Doctor’s little projector. I love that it… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 099 – The Key To Time Parts 5-8: The Pirate Planet
I’m going to review each part of Key To Time as separate stories, because wikipedia’s story number is distinct for each part. What that means is when I get to season 23, The Trial Of A Time Lord, I will be doing it as a single post. So we are onto season sixteen1. More than halfway through Tom Baker’s run as the Doctor. And more than halfway through all the seasons of Doctor Who including the new show. New show is going to fly by, with only 13 episodes a season and large gaps between seasons. I say all that and we’re only on Doctor 4 out of 13. So…… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 098 – The Key To Time Parts 1-4: The Ribos Operation
