Doctor Who Serial 072 – Death To The Daleks

Another episode I’m not fond of. The Doctor finds himself on a planet where the Daleks and a human expedition must team up to strip the natural resources from a planet without the forethought to ask the native inhabitants, the Exxilons.

Obviously the Exxilons don’t like this.

The show is ridiculous, and The Doctor has work his way through a maze and prove his intelligence, with the Daleks close behind. It’s kinda like that episode of Stargate SG-1 where Merlin has some puzzles that Humans must solve to be able to gain access to his knowledge and they’re basic logic puzzles, like the one where you have to put the runes in order, but it’s just basic numerals with their mirror image connected to it.. Well, take that and dumb it down a few hundred times. The Doctor has to do a maze that is included on a kids’ menu at Pizza Hut.

The Daleks are rarely good. Hopefully they soon add Davros to give them a voice.

DOCTOR WHO SERIAL 068 – Planet Of The Daleks

I got tired of Doctor Who and as such, I stopped watching it for a bit between episodes 5 and 6 of “Planet of the Daleks.” It wasn’t a very good episode, and I’m very tired of Jon Pertwee. I never loved him as The Doctor and I’m ready for Tom Baker. Except I still have 32 more episodes of the Pertwee era.

The one thing that should’ve kept me interested in this serial is the fact that The Doctor and his co-conspirators dress up like Sesame Street monsters to hide from the Daleks.

This might sound strange, but here’s the thing. There’s another creature in this story, who ally themselves with the Daleks, they’re off-brand Muppets. These Mooppets are furry and purple. The Doctor and crew skin them (alive?) and hide in their carcass.

Family fun!™

The Daleks are developing a personal cloaking device, and the Thals from the planet Skaro are there trying to stop. If you forgot about the Thals, they were from the first episode about The Daleks.

Stuff happens, they drown an entire fleet of Daleks. The Doctor runs around corridors.

Doctor Who Serial 060 – Day of the Daleks

Synopsis: Jon Pertwee’s Doctor faces his first Dalek invasion. There’s a man who is organizing a peace conference. An assassination attempt is made. The failed assassin vanished. The Doctor is called.

The Doctor feels, the smartest course of action would be to stay at the haunted house and drink some wine.

I knew there was a reason I liked Doctor Who. Jo and The Doctor relax and suddenly are faced with a break in by a guerrilla army. They discover that this militia is a group of rebels who are revolting against a Dalek invasion in the 22nd century. The Daleks are using a lower species (who look like Klingons) to be their pawns in this war against the Humans.

It’s odd because we know in the 22nd century Klingons will make their way to Earth, leading to an early launch of the USS Enterprise NX-01.  In addition, the future rebels use a time machine that looks conspicuously like a tricorder. I’m pretty sure that this is a Star Trek crossover.

We also find The Doctor fighting a Dalek invasion in the 22nd century. Something that happened once before. It make me wonder if The Doctor is interfering with events that he once fixed already. I do wonder if this is something that was planned before or not.

Overall, this wasn’t the greatest episode. It was silly, but not that exciting, most of the action involved The Doctor with his feet up. Also compared to Into The Dalek which aired a two days ago, it falls on its face. But we’re not at the point where we’re reviewing Capaldi episodes. that’ll have to wait. In the meantime… here’s a clip from The Two Doctors.
