Doctor Who Serial 113 – Warriors’ Gate

Part One

This feels like a Beckett play. “We have lift off,” two bored dudes shout, “yay!”

Okay as this goes on, this feels more and more like a Beckett play.

Every time they say “time winds” I assume they are talking about “time farts.”

The dude just said more people were coming. Why don’t Adric or Romana think it’ll happen?

“Give me a printout.”

Part Two

Cobwebs and skeletons, they’re covered in grime1.

Vladimir and Estrogan are still sitting in the same spot, providing commentary.

I think I missed something, why is K9 walking backwards?

“This is important, I need you to do it.” “Energy levels critical.” “Oh, come on old chap!” That really feels like a scene with Henry Fondle from BoJack Horseman.

Part Three

I like when my wife watches with me, and laughs at the ridiculousness. Like the Doctor disappearing as he walks backwards, or the monster/muppet hand pressing the button.

Aww, scary monster is freeing Romana.

K9 is a lot lighter than I would have expected.

Is the Scottish guy supposed to look exotic and alien?

K9 shut up! Listen to your Time Lady.

Fuck Romana is captured twice in this story… well, that’s not surprising.

Part Four

The Masters are garbage people.

I like that the Doctor is really into pickles in this episode. I too am rather fond of pickles.

Romana is leaving! K9, too!
