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 the Doctor “citizen” so this is a parallel to communism, comrade.

I think the Doctor should let Leela cut someone’s heart out. She really wants to.

Part Two

Doctor, don’t you know that smoking isn’t healthy?

That Plutonian has a really big thumbnail, like the size of my big toe nail… and I wear size 14 shoes.

That dude needs some glasses.

This guy looks like Fred Willard and sounds like Michael Palin.

The Doctor totally wants to bang her.

That guard is incompetent.

“Hmm, tell me Citizen Doc-tor.”

The Plutonians wear great hats.

Part Three

That steering wheel doesn’t seem like it’s usable.

K9 saying that duplication is unnecesary when the Doctor was already halfway through the duplication. So he could either walk back to stop the duplication or walk back to finish the duplication.

The CEO reminds me of terrible Doctor Who villain Max Capricorn.

I have a feeling Leela isn’t about to die.

Part Four

Looking at the title of this episode, I’m wondering when they’re going to explain what “Sun Makers” are and why Pluto has so many suns. Is it like Star Trek where they were talking about worshipping the sun, but meant the son (Jesus)?

Oh yeah, they’re killing Leela. Whoever cast this guy as the villain is terrible.

An aside. I’m watching WKRP, as well as Doctor Who. Not at the same time. Why is Jennifer thought as the hot one, Bailey’s much better looking.

Okay, so this episode isn’t anti-tax as much as it is pro-worker.

Workers of the world, unite!

The Communist Manifesto (1848) by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels

Grinding oppression of the masses is the only policies that pays dividends.

Let’s revolt! End capitalism!

Why are they cracking the safe when they should be busy putting out the message to the masses announcing the revolution?

HAHA! Throwing Fred Willard off the building was amazing.

So they mean literal suns.

I think the Doctor won and the people are free.

That was so British. Man runs in “sorry I’m late.”
