Oh, we get a teaser this time. Of course the British one fails. Charlotte Ritchie! So much Taskmaster love! Though like Lee Mack, I knew her before from Fresh Meat. Poor Charlotte, with a spider on her back. That’s a Dalek? Why is the black archive available online? Eighty-eight miles an hour!!!!!! The Dalek attacking the cop is fantastic. I. Will. Fight! Charlotte Ritchie The family with no data is amazing. Aww, dad hugs!
Oh look, it’s about Kolos. I don’t remember this episode at all, based on the first 30 seconds. Okay, I did see it, but it wasn’t memorable. Graham, you’re better than revenge. Why did Ryan never call him “Grahamdad?” Tim Shaw is too boring of a bad guy. I like the Doctor calling her TARDIS a “ghost monument.”
Eating soil? Who does she think she is? Constable Benton Frasier? Don’t call her “sweetheart,” Yas! I remember liking this episode. I don’t like Ryan in this episode. Aww Ryan, now I’m happy with you, calling Graham “granddad.” <3
Witches! Who is the one running the witch trial. Oh, she was in Happy Valley. That show was both amazing and brutally horrible. Apparently Alan Cumming is in this episode, too. They’ve had tons of celebs during Whittaker’s first season. If those two and all the Taskmaster contestants are celebs. I want Alan Cumming as king. Alan Cumming is playing him queer, over the top queer. Apparently it’s theorized he was according to wikipedia. The Doctor is kind of a witch. This story is horrible, but Alan Cumming is great in it. “It’s a very flat team structure.” I really like that. I really wish Doctor Who was that before… Read More »Doctor Who Story 284 – The Witchfinders
This might be commentary on Amazon. I do enjoy the fez call back. Oh, it’s Lee Mack. Another Taskmaster contestant. The difference is that I knew him before Taskmaster and before his appearance in this episode. “Never climb on the conveyers” sounds like that’s going to come up later. Forcing people to work because unemployment is so high is stupid. Just tax the asses out of corporations and let people enjoy a leisure life. Hahahaha, Lee Mack is doing his usually comedy even in character. Capitalism is bad when people are killing to get jobs. Charlie’s a dummy.
The grandmother giving her kids presents on her birthday. It’s really nice. I am quite enjoying this episode. I don’t know enough about the partition of Pakistan and India. It’s nice to have a silly show to give us a big of educational content. She’s a bit too sonic heavy. She could just use a keyboard. The Henna is making me think of someone who used to do henna based work. I doubt Einstein had a non-denominational wedding. The brother is an asshole. I like that the bad guys aren’t bad guys. They’re just here to observe, and the brother is the actual bad guy. Humans are so much worse… Read More »Doctor Who Story 282 – Demons of the Punjab
I do wish they had teasers, I like the teaser fading into the opening credits. Oh, it’s Roy from Ted Lasso! Oh, it’s Doc Brown from Taskmaster! The Doctor really is being a selfish ass, but unlike previous Doctors she sees it, and adjusts her actions. The Pting is adorable.
The more I hear the revised theme, the more I like it. It’s still not as good as Delia Derbyshire’s version. Poor Graham, no time to grieve. I don’t love this spider story and I really wish it was more focused on Graham and Ryan. Mee-thane! I do enjoy that every American in Doctor Who is an egotistical asshole. They’re all Donald Trump.
I don’t remember this episode being good. I do remember it being good for children learning about the battle for civil rights in American history. Holy fuck, this is first episode of Doctor Who ever written by a person of colour. That is really terrible. At least for once they don’t have the Doctor brushing off racism in the past like she did with Martha and Bill. Why did they go to the hotel when they could have gotten in the TARDIS. Close the curtains! Ryan being starstruck by Dr. King is great. It’s Rosa, not Roser. The episode was better than I remember. White supremacists with time travel is… Read More »Doctor Who Story 279 – Rosa
The opening credits are so much better in this season. Capaldi’s looked like a shitty cartoon from the early aughts. Didn’t Capaldi go blind from being out in the vacuum of space? Apparently the place is called Desolation. Hahahaha, I love that people keep implanting them all. Jodie Whittaker is great as the Doctor. She’s fun. Why is she surprised the TARDIS isn’t there? She knew it was phasing in and out. I like how the entrance of the TARDIS is the depth of the police box. It’s too dark inside the TARDIS.
