Doctor Who Serial 059 – The Daemons

Synopsis: I don’t really know what this is about. The Master decides that the way to take over the universe is to become a vicar.


In this story, The Doctor keeps on bemoaning how impossible it is to make Jo Grant a scientist. I have no idea why he’s trying. Someone smarter than The Doctor calls her an idiot. I fully approve.

The Doctor is trying to explain that any science significantly advanced seems like magic. People don’t seem to understand this stuff, and it’s baffling. A car moving on its own isn’t a crazy magic. Are the ’70s so far in the past that we are so disconnected from the manner of thought of those alive only forty years ago.



The best part, hand down, is when The Master gives the devil’s horns. The Master is totes metal.
