Doctor Who Serial 076 – The Ark in Space

This was another fun romp! I quite enjoyed it. The Doctor his in true form, he’s already got his Jelly Babies ready to roll. Sarah is being a spunky feminist. Harry is condescending, but he’s okay.

They find an ark in space… a sleeper ship… the SS Botany Bay. They wake up some of the crew, and fortunately none of them are Khan Noonien Singh. Instead they’re weirdly British and bureaucratic. I guess that’s par for the course on The Adventures of Time Travelling Colonial Imperialist.

Turns out while they’ve been frozen, some bugs from Andromeda were taking over the sleeper ship and feeding on freeze-dried human.

Turns out these bugs were actually dislocated by the colonial humans and are just looking for a new home.

The strangest part of this episode is that The Doctor is just okay with letting these bugs die.
