Doctor Who Serial 056 – The Mind of Evil

Synopsis: The Doctor and Jo visit a prison where they’re using a machine to remove all evil from prisoners and storing it in a jar. Meanwhile, UNIT is guarding the first world peace conference. People start dying in both places.

vlcsnap-2014-04-13-17h38m03s78Where do I start with how ridiculous this story is? The concept that there’s a World Peace conference is extremely unlikely. If world peace were to ever happen, it would be with individual discussions and alliances, not a general Earth-wide conference.

Why would you store the evil?!?! Why? How can you store evil? How can you project evil as The Master does, via Chin-Lee?

Why is the prison in constant riot mode? How are people constantly sneaking guns and weapons into the prison?

After Jo is captured in a prison riot, why does she stay after quelling said riot only to get captured again?

Why does The Master save The Doctor’s life?

Why all the karate chops?

Who scored this?

Why have both season 8 stories so far had The Master resigning to the fact that he had to work with The Doctor?
