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!
