Doctor Who Serial 139 – The Mark of The Rani

Part One

Okay, this is just turning into a fashion blog. Maybe I’ll start writing about the Great British Sewing Bee (just finished season 5). What the hell is Peri wearing? That white skirt is a really bad idea. And those shoulder? Yuck!

At least Doctor Who is talking about environmental protections, but 40 years later, and we did nothing.

Don’t you hate when your horse-drawn wagon gets carjacked?

*gasp* It’s the Master.

HAHA! I love when Time Lords/Ladies peel off a face. The Master totes has a boner for the Rani.

Oh, Master, yes, “claptrap” is a great use of language, I approve.

Is this the end for our Doctor? Is the Doctor rolling to an early grave? Find out next week. Same Bat-Time. Same Bat-Channel.

Part Two

George Stephenson is apparently the inventor of the steam locomotive. You learn new things by watching Doctor Who.

Oh god, the Master and his hypnosis.

“You’ll make an awful mess of that pretty dress.” No, Doctor! That’s not a pretty dress.

Doctor on a stick.

The Rani turning people into trees is amazing.

Peri, is that really how you think Americans say “later?”

Oh god! The T-Rex is the worst thing Doctor Who has done… since this dress Peri is wearing.

“I always said he was a strange fella,” says the man who just met him.

Doctor Who Serial 138 – Vengeance on Varos

Part One

Hey dude, I understand. I too hate when beams of light are shone on my stomach.

The creature design in Doctor Who is so bad. This is something that Doctor Who still has a problem with.

Also, this reminds me of the Star Wars prequels, all they talk about is trade.

Wait. Peri is wearing the exact same outfit as the last story, except in blue, and this time properly fitting.

So many dividends.

Now I wish Vincent Adultman was in this episode of Doctor Who.

Except those shorts. They do not fit. If they wanted to show off Peri’s body, they should have fitted those shorts a lot better. #bum

I hope Nicola Bryant was okay with how they dressed Peri and sexualized her, because it’s not right for Doctor Who.

I was gonna call out Peri for pronouncing Z wrong, but the Doctor beat me to it.

They like talking about places being in a constellation. Do they know that constellations are based on a 2D perception of space? Let alone that the Doctor is traveling in four dimensions (five if you include space like Susan did in the pilot episode).

Uh oh! Here comes the Doctor.

So the soldier executing the orders the leaders are paying attention to reports a fault and they just shrug.

I like that the government has golf carts. This scene reminds of the scene in Austin Powers where he tries to turn the golf cart around.

Even without his coat of many colours, his costume is stupid.

Part Two

Wow, the Doctor just dumped two people into a vat of acid and left the room with a “witty1 quip”. It was disgusting.

How many ways can we try to murder the Doctor?

The PHAAAAAANTOM OF THE OPERA!

When in doubt, shoot the keyboard.

Golf cart!

The death causing plant tendrils seems like a bad idea to have around.

Is “he needs more than water, Peri, eh?” a play on Perrier?

  1. It wasn’t witty []

Doctor Who Serial 137 – Attack of the Cybermen

Part One

Hello, season 22!

Never split up when you’re in the wrong tunnel.

That pink romper doesn’t fit on Peri very well, for one, her left boob is squished, secondly, it looks like it’s hunching her over.

Oh, it’s a heist episode.

The roundels look like they could use a fresh coat of paint.

The head of this heist must know that being this much of an asshole will get these guys to rat on you if you get caught, right?

Oh, it’s not a romper, it’s a unitard with a pair of shorts?

Jamie could be a woman’s name, why is she so confused. Also, I miss Jamie. Best companion.

Oh, heist captain is not scared of the cops, because he’s buddies with the Cybermen.

I feel so bad for Peri’s back.

Why did they leave the TARDIS door open?

Part Two

I’m so confused how the Doctor is dumb enough to have left his TARDIS door open.

So Lytton was in that Dalek episode with Peter Davison. I had no idea, and I just watched it. I really am face-blind. All white dudes look a like.

God, Peri needs a new outfit.

God, the Doctor needs a new outfit.

Oh! She changed. That’s so much better. This jumpsuit is great! The belt is fantastic. Is this turning into a fashion blog?

God that alien’s voice is horrific.

That director should know not to get too close to the mask, it’s too bad. Though I guess most Doctor Who fans in the 1980s were not watching on a 55″ TV.

Shit is getting real. They’re trying to blow up Earth.

All those creepy hands on Peri are creepy.

Stop touching her, it’s creepy. You’re not touching anyone else.

Once again, the door to the TARDIS is wide open.

Doctor Who Serial 136 – The Twin Dilemma

Part One

Wow, I’m surprised they started Colin Baker’s era with a pair of lesbians playing backgammon.

Well, it’s just their haircuts. Romulus and Remus are jackasses.

Well, they’re doing a great job at making me think the Doctor is an asshole.

Now that’s fashion! Peri’s outfit is great, though.

So we have a terrible companion, and a Doctor who’s an asshole and choking her out.

Oh! Bunny wabbit monster!

Part Two

What is with Peri’s outfit? The tartan top with no fitting whatsoever? I think the only point of that top is this shot I’m looking at right now that is right down her shirt. That skirt is way too flared.

“Have you heard of a planet called Wakanda?”

God, Colin Baker’s Doctor is such an arrogant asshole.

Wow, how Peri was willing to continue travelling with the Doctor is completely wrong.

Part Three

She’s been in the TARDIS for like 10 minutes. How on Earth does she know how to operate the viewscreen.

Peri shouldn’t have compassion for the Doctor. There’s no reason for her to.

The TimeLord and the pointy headed dude are totally going to make out. There’s not enough man-on-man make out sessions in this version of Doctor Who. I look forward to the Russell T. Davies years.

Punch Colin Baker in the nose.

Part Four

Big intimating aliens walk in, the leader with his squeakiest voice says, “he’s the one.”

Damn! The wiggly forcefield is actually great!

Wow that was a terrible ending and Peri should leave. She’s in an abusive relationship.

Doctor Who Serial 135 – The Caves of Androzani

Part One

Wow, they layering of video is not very Doctor Who. And it looks horrible.

I’d say those outfits are rip offs of Deep Space Nine uniforms, but this is a decade earlier.

Peri screams as much as Susan.

Android rebels???? YES!

OH DAMN! I thought the red ones makde it look like DS9 uniforms. Now there are yellow and blue.

Starfleet uniforms

And the Doctor just introduced Peri as Perpugilliam Brown. Someone was dropping acid when writing.

I hate close-talkers.

“Suggests I take 0.3 of a centilitre every day.” If you’re going to put in decimals and use a non-frequently used measurement of a litre, might as well just day 3 millilitres. or 0.03 decilitres.

Oh yeah! This is the S&M story with the guy in the gimp mask.

Part Two

Dude in a gimp suit saying “quite content” while putting his hand on Peri is creepy, but I don’t think in the way they intended.

That dude had enough time to spit out that pill before the guy started trying to force him to bite on the suicide pill.

The green part is under our control. I love that it’s just a screen divided into four equal bands of different colours.

One of the stages of this death that Saltine warns the Doctor of is. TDP, Thermal Death Point. I was certain he said TVP, textured vegetarian protein.

Gah, Peri, stop screaming.

Gimp is pretty upset.

Part Three

I feel like they’ve used this monster costume a few hundred times before in Doctor Who.

That gimp slapping the Doctor was hilarious.

If you have a janky looking prop, don’t have a closeup of it. Though the next guy looks like he’s holding an iPhone.

“So I said 8 kilos, and he agreed.” Made me think of Phil Wang on Taskmaster.

Part Four

The Gimp’s 2D map does not do justice to the size of these worlds.

This is so dramatic, for something that doesn’t deserve this drama.

Someone’s really leaning hard on the Phantom of the Opera tropes.

The Doctor has known Peri just as long as he’s known everyone else on this planet, he’s cool with them all dying, but not Peri.

“Lisa needs braces.” “Dental plan!”

Welp! That’s Peter Davison. Fare thee well, good Doctor. We’ll see you in “Time Crash” and then, I guess in “The Five-ish Doctors.”

I liked him as the Doctor, the stories were not that great.

Doctor Who Serial 123 – Arc of Infinity

Part One

Well that was obvious that those were Time Lords, I guess they’re so well established by now that we know what to expect.

“The Dutch are civilized, they’re not going to put you in jail for losing a passport.” I really expected it to be about cannabis.

I hate when other people painfully superimpose themselves over me.

Was that a weeping angel?

Colin Baker! I wonder if we’ll ever see him again.

The Doctor just shot the Doctor!!! That explains why no one liked Colin Baker.

Part Two

Aliens use lighting gels as paper. That’s how it should be.

Good hair, Tegan.

Now that I remember that Tegan went missing, the Doctor doesn’t seem to care. That seems consistent with his character. An asshole from William Hartnell to Jody Whitaker.

Dude, you lost your passport, go to the consulate and get a replacement. That’s one of the reasons governments have a presence in foreign countries.

This is reminding me that the Doctor is not a Time Lord, because new Doctor Who is as ridiculous as old Doctor Who.

Man, they’re really teasing hard on the Doctor’s death.

Part Three

Oh, he’s not dead.

Why did Tegan’s buddy get shorter as he flashed between regular and inverted colours?

Part Four

How is Tegan’s breast staying in that top? It seems magical. If she’s not careful she’ll look like this.

I love TNG. Image courtesy of “Fashion It So.”

Omega looks like he has hot dogs stapled to the side of his face. And Tegan’s gentleman friend is lying in beautiful repose. Paint me like one of your French girls.

My Big Bird in shining armour!

Peter Davison looks good in a normal outfit. He should wear those more.

Oh no! He has eczema.
