Doctor Who story xx – The Sarah Jane Adventures series 2

The Last Sontaran

Oh my god! The UI on her music player. The past was so weird.

Goblin’s Copse? That’s the name of the village? British people are weird.

Call an ambulance, she hit her head.

Oh yeah, call the police, too. There’s a missing person.

Sarah Jane is being a bitch to Maria.

It’s a cloaked Sontaran!

I’m impressed by the Sontaran actor’s ability to run in that costume.

Call UNIT, Maria and Luke! Or at least call Mr Smith and have him call UNIT. They could have brought Martha into The Sarah Jane Adventure.

I really like the single balloon falling around when Mr Smith opens.

I wish they weren’t dragging out Maria leaving for America. It’s nice that she got one more story, but maybe introduce the idea near the end of the episode.

They let the Sontaran go? They should have arrested him, he attempted genocide.

The Day of the Clown

It’s the Rani!!!! Why would they name their character with the same name as a major Doctor Who character.

They’re really hitting us with the “Rani is going to be a main character” stick.

Doctor Who got rid of the serialized stories back in 2005. Why did they decide to bring it back for Sarah Jane?

Move quickly, jeez!

Why is Sarah Jane so scared of clowns?

Would any teenager not try to attach themselves to Sarah Jane’s world?

I wish her friend at the Pharos Institute was another Doctor Who companion.

Oh god, bad jokes are the solution to the episode.

So if all the children just arrive, does that include all those German kids from the Pied Piper tale?

Secrets of the Stars

This lady should listen to an astrology podcast.

I guess they already told Rani that Luke wasn’t born, because she’s taking it easily.

HAHAHAHA! He says Chair-yl for Cheryl! I used to have a boss who did that, Cheryl didn’t like it.

He’s talking about the Doctor.

The flashback is with David Tennant, when he’s talking about meeting the Doctor and him leaving her… it should have been Jon Pertwee or Tom Baker.

“Truman is human.” Truman is a true man!

“Is she your companion?” Yes, very much, Rani is Sarah Jane’s companion. I don’t think they’re ever referred to as such, but Rani, Luke and Clyde are Sarah’s companions, and Gwen and Ianto are Jack’s companions.

Clyde is Jesus.

Luke not having a star sign will mean he can’t be controlled and will save the day.

“It’s time for Cancer to join the circle.” Chevron two is locked!

I just learned that in a new block I can type /gif and get a Giphy block.

Oh shit, children of Scorpio are joining the circle. That’s ME!

Yay! I was right about Luke!

HAHAHA! He called her “Cheryl” with the proper pronunciation, not “Chair-yl.”

The Mark of the Berserker

They have a character named Rani. Why isn’t there an episode called “Mark of the Rani?”

Starts off with naughty kids.

Don’t you hate when your tattoos spread?

Jacob is an asshole.

Oh god! And Rani know has the pendent? And they’re not calling it the Mark of the Rani?

Uh oh, she now has the mark of the Rani! Also, fuck her for the cruel shit she’s doing to her dad.

I want sandwiches.

Clyde, you idiot. Don’t show your dad all this shit.

Clyde’s dad is a shitbag.

Oh my god! The slug! I love it.

Maria, don’t tell your dad to shut up.

He’s going to hack into a military database?

Clyde is an asshole. That dude is going to get fired for giving away a car.

They should have called Martha.

Is the sitting area in the attic new? It’s nice.

The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith

Uh oh! Oscar is trying to trick Sarah Jane.

The theme music reminds me of Harry Potter.

  1. Don’t do it!
  2. Don’t do it in that terrible outfit.

It’s a village fete! So British.

Did Sarah Jane’s mum say, “I’m Brabra?” What kind of name is Brabra?

Don’t be naughty, Sarah Jane.

Oscar the Grask!

The Trickster is a jackass.

Oh, that ain’t the TARDIS.

“Are you two having a laugh?”

“Yes, ethnic person in the 1950s.”

This episoe is actually sad. Poor Sarah Jane.

Hahaha! The Trickster just sounded like Noel Fielding when he said, “Oh no! Stop them!”

That’s some cheap-ass vortex manipulator, able to crush it with one stomp.

Enemy of the Bane

I think I’m supposed to know who Wormwood is, but I don’t.

Thank you for assuming I’m a dumb child, she was the lady who made Luke in the pilot.

Never give up, never surrender!

Hahaha! Stunned Rani mother is hilarious.

I didn’t realize that the Black Archive happened before the 50th Anniversary episode.

Yay! The Brigadier.

Wow, those guards are horrible at their jobs. The blanket covering Sarah Jane is a bit obvious.

Sarah Jane’s house gets destroyed way too often.

Sontaran? That was unexpected.

They learned the true intentions of Wormwood really quickly. That’s kinda surprising.

Hahahaha! Wormwood is an idiot for trusting Luke.

The Major is an asshole. Uh oh! The Major is an alien!

This is way too Darth Vader-esque.

Clyde tending to the injured Sontaran, that’s actually nice character growth.

From Raxacoricofallapatorius with Love

I’m skipping ahead. I should watch “The Next Doctor” and the Proms before I get to this little mini-episode, but I don’t think anything in continuity will be ruined by watching this first.

K-9!

That was no “Time Crash.”

Doctor Who Serial xx – Dimensions in Time

Part One

Jon Pertwee looks great! I have no idea who this person Pertwee is talking to, but it’s just the intro.

Wow, those models of Hartnell and Troughton are terrible.

As is this version of the theme, terrible.

Tom Baker is great, “the grumpy one and the flautist.”

McCoy’s hair is too long, the hippy!

Wow, that doesn’t look like 2013.

I feel like they’re trying to smoosh in too many lines for too many people.

Susan looks good.

I forgot how much I hate Peri’s terrible accent.

I’m voting for Big Ron.

Part Two

“We’re helping Children in Need in Crinkly Bottom” wait, what???

Of course, Bessy makes an appearance.

This makes me never want to watch Eastenders.

How does Ace look younger here than when she was on the show?

Doctor Who Serial 152 – Battlefield

It’s incredible. Season 26, the final season of Doctor Who. It’s been a long journey.

Part One

The Brigadier is back, and he’s old and retired.

And now we have UNIT and a new Brigadier. She’s a lady.

“Too late, we’ve already arrived.” Then the TARDIS appears. He was wrong.

It’s a knight on an elevator!

I thought maybe that would be psychic paper, but it’s Liz Shaw’s old credentials.

This Brigadier needs to be briefed. Lethbridge-Stewart’s daughter is much better at knowing what came before her.

Once again, there are two BIPOC in this story. Doctor Who is getting better. One of them is even the leader of UNIT.

Winnifred really needs a briefing.

Part Two

Winnifred shooting a group of soldiers with lots of weapons makes me think she’s bad at military.

Lethbridge-Stewart is taking too long to get into the story.

Ace blowing stuff up is fun.

“Hey you, do this.” “What am I supposed to do?” The Doctor just told you!

The Doctor should keep his temper in check.

Part Three

Stargate SG-1 did Arthurian legend better than Doctor Who.

It’s nice to finally have the Brigadier with the Doctor.

“A warrior maid” is a great phrase.

The people who love Bessie never made sense to me, but those people must have been happy.

Part Four

The way they pronounce “Morgan” is weird… “more-gain.”

Oh yeah! New Brigadier has a sword. She’s a bad-ass!

She’s a bad mime.

Oh, there’s a troll doll.

I hate when people devour my planet.

Only new Brigadier and her boyfriend seemed to survive.

She seems to be best buds with her troll buddy.

Oh, the troll knows English idioms.

The troll has a ripped shirt, like Captain Kirk.

Hahaha! The real Brigadier is hilarious.

Doctor Who Serial 150 – Silver Nemesis

Holy crap! 150 serials in! This is incredible. I’m on my seventh Doctor. 25th season. 150th serial.

“The serial marks the final appearance of the Cybermen in the original run.” DELETE!

Part One

Fucking hell. I have to deal with Nazis in real life, and now on Doctor Who, too?

Ace and the Doctor are enjoying some smooth jazz in a garden.

Ace, I also hope your tape is alright.

It’s 1988, the Doctor makes Ace a boombox and he doesn’t include a CD player? While he was at it, he should’ve put in an MP3 player.

Time travelling wizards?

“We won’t harm you,” says the Doctor to some Nazis… he should.

Part Two

I’ll cheer for the Cybermen over the Nazis. 1) they’re not racist, they want to hill all humans. 2) they’re fictional.

“A hit! A very palpable hit!” YES!

Dammit, Cybermen! You have terrible aim. Kill the Nazis!

Cybermen and Daleks make way too many alliances and they always pay for them.

Part Three

That’s the most exaggerated thumb movement of a hitchhiker, ever.

Why is there an American in a limo heading to Windsor castle?

Why did she just run into the shuttle?

Oh god, a musical interlude.

“Professor? Doctor? Who are you?” I think the audience has a pretty good idea who the Doctor is at this point.

Doctor Who Serial 129 – The Five Doctors

Doctor Who loves that “One day, I shall come back” clip.

Richard Hurndall doesn’t look much like William Hartnell.

“Just a twinge of ‘Cosmic Angst.'” That’s my band name. Cosmic Angst. The nerdy teenagers will love it!

God damn, just 30 seconds with Patrick Troughton makes me happy. He’s so good. Best Doctor.

The Brigadier says that someone is his replacement and Troughton replies, “yes, mine was pretty unpromising, too.” Now I have no idea how he knows that as a character, but damn, I love that line, so much.

Jon Pertwee’s abduction wasn’t as great as I would have wanted.

Sarah Jane has a greater part to play in abduction scenes than Jon Pertwee.

And here’s Tom Baker’s archive footage. A shame he wouldn’t participate. I would have loved to see him with Patrick Troughton.

I don’t like this trend of Companions knowing how to use the TARDIS.

Yay! The Master! Time for some moustache twirling!

Hmm, this is the first appearance of the Dalek’s since Tom Baker left.

“Teeth and curls?” Classic!

Peter Davison making excuses to his previous self is great.

It’s nice that they have well maintained paved roads in the Death Zone.

The Commodore 64 graphics in the TARDIS are excellent.

“The scanner is keyed to my, to our, brainwave pattern. Well, well, well, so two of them made it. I wonder what happened to the other.” This is written in William Hartnell’s Doctor voice, and Hurndall fails to master it in any way.

Susan twisting her ankle is probably the best moment in this entire story.

God, I love Gallifreyan fashion.

Susan acts exactly like she did in the good ole’ days.

Cops are bastards on Earth and on Gallifrey.

Patrick Troughton’s cowardess is one of my favourite things of the second doctor era.

Yeah, make Sara Jane carry everything, Doctor.

I love Zoe and Jamie. I miss that trio.

“What happened to the little fellow?”

“I’ve reversed the polarity of the neutron flow.” Thank you Jon Pertwee!

What a romp!
