Doctor Who Story 296 – Revolution of the Daleks

God, is my memory so bad that I barely remember “Resolution” which I watched 8 days ago? That was quite the deep swig of burning hot tea. You can even see the steam rising from the thermos. Captain Jack is in the opening titles. Good for him. Doctor Who needs to stop pretending humans are so dumb they never remember Daleks. Especially someone in government. Ahh, the Doctor in jail due to the Jadoon. Poor Ood in jail. That’s a lot of ticks. The Doctor has been there a while. I like the look of this TARDIS. At least someone remembers what a Dalek is. Where are the rest of… Read More »Doctor Who Story 296 – Revolution of the Daleks

Doctor Who Story 291 – Fugitive of the Judoon

I don’t love the Judoon, though I do quite their first appearance. Well, something’s going to go wrong with this couple. And enter the Doctor and friends. Creepy bartender creeping. Oh yeah, Captain Jack! I like him thinking that Graham is the Doctor. Jack being giddy when he finds out the Doctor is a woman is great. Three of you? I had a dream about this once. Captain Jack about the the Doctor’s companions I’m bored by the A story. It’s okay, but all the stories are a bit meh, and one is fun with Captain Jack. Oh, I forgot that she’s the Doctor. Ahh, rewriting the entire Doctor Who… Read More »Doctor Who Story 291 – Fugitive of the Judoon

Doctor Who Story xx – Torchwood series 4: Miracle Day

The New World Bill Pullman was terrible in that intro scene. I thought I was done with Russell T. Davies’ obsession with talking head news reports. This season and one more season of Sarah Jane and then no more Davies. Why is his lawyer not having this discussion with the guy from the Governor’s office? It’s a trap, Gwen. Running away from Jack is always a good idea. That’s a shitty doctor who wants to cut off someone’s head. I don’t think the CIA can extradite Torchwood. Rendition Why the hell are Cardiff police helping? So is he going to heal? Wayne Knight is in this? This CIA agent is… Read More »Doctor Who Story xx – Torchwood series 4: Miracle Day

Doctor Who Story 202 – The End of Time

Dreamland A decent story about Area 51 would be nice, but I don’t think this is it. But it’s nice that David and Georgia got to work together again. I assume they were a couple by this point. The Doctor making Die Hard and Alien references is great. I wouldn’t mind the Doctor having an indigenous companion. Uh oh, the military is controlled by an alien. This animation style makes David Tennant look sickly. There’s too many groups in this story. The US military, the Roswell Greys, the insects, the swarm, the robots. People pick up the TARDIS way too easily. Doctor, don’t set up other people with your wife.… Read More »Doctor Who Story 202 – The End of Time

Doctor Who Story xx – Torchwood: Children of Earth

Tonight’s The Night This is a mini-episode of Doctor Who that aired between “Planet of the Dead” and series 3 of Torchwood. Since it’s Jack in the TARDIS, I’m going to lump it in with Torchwood. That was terrible, until David Tennant showed up. Day One It’s Malcolm fucking Tucker! Aka, the Doctor! Rhys is always an asshole, even to children. Does everyone in Cardiff know about Torchwood and what they do? Those people in a hospital not wearing masks is wrong. I’m too surrounded by COVID. The laser sutures should be commercialized. Someone’s in Vancouver. Vancouver is great. Would be so much better if Martha was able to be… Read More »Doctor Who Story xx – Torchwood: Children of Earth

Doctor Who Story 198 – The Stolen Earth & Journey’s End

The Stolen Earth The milkman looks like Spike. Are there still milkmen in Britain? Someone stole Earth. Martha! Wilf is the best companion. Good news, Rose is there to save the day! They all got into the opening credits, that’s nice. Russell Davies loves newscasters. Really? This is what she bothers with? The Earth has been moved and spaceships are en route, and she’s worrying about looters? Jealous Ianto. Martha is on a bluetooth headset with Jack, yet the general she’s conversing with in person hears Jack telling her not to do it. Wilfred with the paintball gun is fun. “Do you have a webcam?” “She wouldn’t let me, says… Read More »Doctor Who Story 198 – The Stolen Earth & Journey’s End

Doctor Who Story xx – Torchwood series 2

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang I’ve gotta say, the old lady saying “Bloody Torchwood,” might be my favourite part of the series. SPIKE! He breezed into that bar. Gwen needs to tell Jack that he needs to be honest with her if she’s ever going to trust him again. Oh fuck you, Jack! Stop telling people that your history doesn’t matter. The stupid western vibe is ridiculous, but I enjoy it. Glad Doctor Who has some good make-outs, thanks to Torchwood. Oh, Ianto is having none of Jack’s bullshit. Maybe not, he did accept his date. Aww, he killed Jack. :( Is it good to throw a bomb into the rift?… Read More »Doctor Who Story xx – Torchwood series 2

Doctor Who Story 187 – Utopia/The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords

Utopia Jack gripping onto the TARDIS screaming “DOCTOR!” Is great. Chantho is a terrible concept. David Tennant’s gleeful smile at the thought of exploring this world is the best. I love Martha and Jack together. Still using projectile weapons at the end of the universe. The Professor seems to recognize the TARDIS. The Doctor can be angry, too angry. God, the flashing of Y-A-N-A is horrible. I really like Derek Jacobi as the Master. The Sound of Drums I don’t think Russell Davies understands how parliamentary democracies work. John Simm’s scowl face is perfection. The comical time bomb attached to the TV is so Looney Tunes. That was a lot… Read More »Doctor Who Story 187 – Utopia/The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords

Doctor Who Story 181 – Gridlock

The Doctor is a jerk for taking Martha to New New York. You never pined for Jamie and he was the best companion. I want some happy. Martha’s quick to judge drug use while pregnant in the distant future. She doesn’t know how these drugs affect a baby in utero. Kitty cat! KITTIES!!!! They shouldn’t write this homophobic cat in a way that makes us want to like him. Oh yeah, I forgot the Macra were the baddies in this one. They’re all singing, this is horrible. The bat person makeup is horrible. Think of all the exhaust coming up and going down and all those cars he’s opened up.… Read More »Doctor Who Story 181 – Gridlock

Doctor Who Story x – Torchwood series 1

Everything Changes That theme is terrible. Now that I’ve seen Gwen, I’m remembering how much I hate her boyfriend/husband/whatever. Jack! She’s holding a coffee, the dude, just asks if he can have it. “There’s no procedure any more, it’s a fucking disgrace.” Yeah, you’re right. Don’t take other people’s drinks. Hahaha, Jack doesn’t know how to pronounce estrogen. I’m watching a show with Susie in it, This Way Up. Watching it because of Aisling Bea. She’s great. Ahh, there’s the terrible boyfriend/husband/whatever. Gwen is weirdly hot in a white collared shirt and tie. It was midday, why was there a bar fight at that time? I bet her long hair… Read More »Doctor Who Story x – Torchwood series 1
