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. Well, unless you’re into that, you kinky bastard.

The End of Time Part One

Ahhh, it starts with narration, always a terrible sign.

Wilf!!!

People are stupid if they are trying to resurrect the Master.

They’re really playing the Master as too insane. It’s not enjoyable.

The narration is horrible. Sorry Mr. Bond.

What’s with the Master wanting to eat people? Also, I feel sorry for John Simm and all these shots of him eating.

This father daughter duo are gross. Like Trump and his daughter.

That’s a good hallway for the Doctor to run in.

More talking heads on news programs.

Boo! Wilfred is now trapped.

The head shaking special effect is so bad. Though most of this story is so bad.

“There is only the Master race.” Dude, I don’t think you know what that means.

“For Gallifrey!”

The End of Time Part Two

I really wish David Tennant’s ending wasn’t so bad, but at least I have tasty quiche.

It’s so strange that the lords of time resort to prophesy.

I don’t believe that 7 billion Masters would defer authority to the original one. I think you’d have fun chaos.

“He loves playing with Earth girls.” Well, “Earth Girls Are Easy.”

Why does the Doctor have such a huge hard on for the Master?

God, this show is so bad! James Bond throws a diamond from his place in this time lock at a picture of Earth and it just shows up on Earth?

What’s with sci-fi and senates and big open pits and balconies over it?

Remember when the Doctor fell from a tower and regenerated into Peter Davison? And now he can just jump out of a spaceship and crash to the floor?

The Master I know loves being the Master. I can’t believe that he’s so upset about being who he is. Also, Gallifrey is huge.

The Doctor is a bit cruel to Wilfred.

Honestly, the Doctor should leave him. Have him dictate a note to the Doctor for his daughter and Donna. Probably separate notes.

I can’t believe that made Mickey and Martha get married. They are so bad.

David Tennant’s Doctor is always so sad. It will be really nice to have a less sad Doctor.

It is nice to see all the Doctor’s companions one final time.

Hello Matt Smith, Goodbye David Tennant.

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 they’re naughty.”

Jack flirting with Sarah Jane is the best.

Oh, Harriet Jones. :(

“Everyone but Rose,” and Susan, and Ian, and Barbara, and Vicki, and Steven, and Katarina, and Dodo, and Ben, and Polly…

Your chest cavity being open like that seems like it would be prone to infection.

Take them with you, Jack, the Daleks are coming for Torchwood!

Wilf, don’t call Rose “sweetheart.”

The Dalek shot the Doctor!

The Doctor fake regenerating is a big fuck you to fans.

Journey’s End

Mickey and Jackie saving Sarah Jane is ridiculous, but I approve.

As if Tosh can make a time bubble as a defence for Torchwood.

Mickey kissing his gun is gold.

German Daleks are the best.

“Stop it! She’s my friend!” Do Daleks really care about friendship?

Dead Jack’s wink is great. It’s really convenient that this is the one time he is resurrected without a big gulp of air.

If you just want to atomize these people, just use a transporter.

“We will become the only lifeforms in existence.” Imagine how bored you would be as a Dalek if there’s no one to kill.

I like that Davros recognizes Sarah Jane.

I bet you he saves everyone.

The TARDIS towing Earth back home, is ridiculous.

Donna and Jack should bone.

I forgot that Mickey stays on Earth Prime.

This is horrible. “Genocidal manic, please rehabilitate him, Rose, and feel free to boink.”

She’s very much saying no, screaming no, demanding no. He could just let her die. Dying might be better than living without those memories.

Doctor Who Story 197 – Turn Left

That accent is horrible.

I remember this episode was terrible, but also I remember it not making sense.

Donna’s mom is cruel.

The “there’s something on your back” makes no sense.

It’s Rose!

Martha is dead. :(

Sarah Jane Smith is also dead. :( That’s horrible.

And the kids from the show. Yikes, this episode is dark.

Rose is back.

Now the Queen is dead. This is really dark.

Ianto and Gwen are dead, too.

That dude is way too positive about being sent to a labour camp.

Wilf is shaking his head sad that Donna knows so little about history. I’m also doing that, but I expected it.

The whole DoctorDonna thing never made much sense. It’s so bad.

“That’s not dying.” Yeah, Donna, that is dying. That’s an entire universe dying. Also, stop telling the audience that a character is about to die, when they aren’t.

Really, they sit at the intersection debating the turn for over two minutes?

Wow, even without TARDIS energy, Rose can change signs to say “Bad Wolf.”

Doctor Who Story 196 – Midnight

I don’t think I’ve seen this episode more than once. I hated it as a kid.

Oh, it’s Scott from Scott & Bailey.

Doctor, you held up that cup way too high for that much shorter woman to toast you with.

This is so bad. Yikes.

According to Wikipedia, “Russell T Davies has stated that the episode was inspired by the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode ‘Darmok’.” Dude, you failed.

Doctor Who Story 195 – Silence in the Library & Forest of the Dead

Silence in the Library

Woo! It’s time for Amy’s daughter… yeah, I spoiled that for you, you’re gonna just have to deal with that.

I forgot about the little kid and her therapist.

Ahh, the start of “spoilers,” something I never loved.

Oh yeah, River sent the Doctor a message.

River Song’s first line is “Hello sweetie.”

“Oh, I’m pretty boy?”

This concept of two loves who time travel and one has never met the other before is heart-wrenching.

I would have loved if there were more episodes with River and David Tennant.

Donna’s howls of pains are horrible.

The ghosting is creepy, but not as creepy as Donna makes it.

Forest of the Dead

I don’t love the story of Donna in the moon. I kinda wish they did that differently.

Squabbling like an old married couple.

No, your Doctor is Matt Smith.

That was quite the sucker punch.

Donna’s loss, the Doctor’s loss. This is a sad episode.

Doctor Who Story 194 – The Unicorn and the Wasp

Ahh, the 1920s, everyone partying because they just went through a terrible war and pandemic. Here’s hoping the 2020s become fun, too.

The Doctor and Donna should not have been the first ones to show up if they’re going to sneak in.

Professor Peach is in the library.

This is a ridiculous episode.

Charades with Donna is fantastic.

Doctor Who Story 193 – The Doctor’s Daughter

That hand’s gonna be a plot point.

Don’t call your husband “dad.” Even when your dad is the Doctor and your husband is the Doctor.

Martha’s become badass.

Oh, the cliché backflipping through the lasers.

And now quicksand?

I wonder if anyone will ever bring back Jenny.

Doctor Who Serial 192 – The Sontaran Stratagem & The Poison Sky

The Sontaran Stratagem

Were people really this scared of GPS?

Martha! Hopefully this isn’t as bad as her Torchwood episodes.

They’re doing a very old-school Doctor Who trope. Showing just a hand or the back of a head staring at a screen.

Sontarans are ridiculous.

Okay, this is the fourth episode of the season, and they’re already doing flashbacks?

This is a very kids’ show episode.

It’s like original Star Trek with the computers who are defeated with logic.

The teenage “genius” looks like that guy.

Cliffhanger!

The Poison Sky

Thank you, Donna’s mom! That was an easy solution. Though that is not how windshields break, ad it would probably have bounced if she didn’t concentrate the hit with a corner of the axe.

Oh shit, Martha clone’s being nefarious.

I’m really glad that when Russell Davies leaves, Doctor Who stopped relying so much on news broadcasts.

I hate the close ups of the newcasters’ lips.

The “Are you my mummy?” was wonderful!

Okay, taking Martha without her consent, not cool, TARDIS.

Doctor Who Serial 191 – Planet of the Ood

Ood revolt!

This is a bad episode.

They’re trying very hard to make a point, and they make it, I feel for the Ood, but it’s still a terrible episode.

Doctor Who Story 190 – The Fires of Pompeii

Ancient Rome… not the first time the Doctor’s been there. I like that they just addressed that. I also like that Amy Pond is watching the Doctor and wondering why he isn’t Matt Smith. Or at least that’s what I assume she’s thinking about.

They’re missing a couple of names from the opening credits. Karen Gillan and Peter Capaldi. I am so looking forward to Amy’s time on Doctor Who, it might be my favourite.

Yay! There’s Capaldi! I wonder if he’s actually the Doctor, and spent some time in Pompeii for fun and was looking forward to his arrival and wanted to buy is old TARDIS.

Good job Donna, standing up to the Doctor.

I like that their walkie talkie is just their hands over their eyes.

I wanna be a Chief Auger. Sounds like a good title.

I’m enjoying this even more.

Amy, don’t steal Donna!

I love how indignant Donna is.

This episode is so stupid, but yet so enjoyable.

Doctor, save your future self.

Peter Capaldi birthing the word “volcano” was completely unnecessary and didn’t work.

The Doctor really does need a companion, and he definitely doesn’t need to spend so much time vetting his companions like he did for Martha.
