Doctor Who story xx – The Sarah Jane Adventures series 3

Prisoner of the Judoon

They’ve added a saga sell to the beginning of the episodes. Quantum Leap always had the best one.

Watching The Sarah Jane Adventures right after Torchwood‘s “Children of Earth” makes me think that Jack should have called Sarah Jane. She has expertise of working with children.

How does Sarah Jane know about the Judoon?

I love the spray bottle.

“Mr Smith, if your central processor fully functional?”

Well that escalated quickly. Mr Smith is going to blow up all of Bannerman Road.

Wow, Elizabeth Sladen is terrible at playing the baddy. I hate saying this.

Wow, I think that’s the first contract security that act realistically. Running away because they should.

Oh wow, Sarah Jane talking to herself via the mirror is so bad.

The Mad Woman in the Attic

That’s Rani.

Clyde’s a good drawer.

I’m only 7 minutes in and it’s so BORING.

These kids blab way too much about their alien hunting.

Let’s finish this story before lunch…

I really don’t like the structure of this episode. Framing it from old lady Rani is terrible.

K-9!

This is a pretty positive story. It’s just bad.

The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith

The Doctor is in this episode. Also, she has an alien boyfriend or something like that. It would be nice if Sarah Jane had a boyfriend… or a girlfriend would be good too.

Mr Smith and K-9 need to be friends with one another.

There’s a TARDIS sound!

Peter and Gita don’t rhyme. British people are so weird.

The CG slug is horrible, but K-9 is adorable.

“Luke says she’s never been to his place.” As if! Where do you think they’re getting down to it? Have you seen how small her car is? They’re not teenagers, that’s going to hurt their backs.

The Brigadier is in Peru, apparently the actor had a stroke recently and wasn’t able to come. It’s a shame. It would’ve been great.

Doctor, the TARDIS needs a tune up.

“Stop this wedding, now!” Screams the Doctor as he barges into the ceremony. “Master!” Says K-9

Why does the Doctor have a grager, is he Jewish? Haman, BOOOOOOOOOOOO!

The kids are shit out of luck without the Doctor.

I love stealth K-9.

I love when David Tennant’s Doctor pretends to be mad and cruel.

I would have loved to see Tom Baker in The Sarah Jane Adventures.

The Eternity Trap

The saga sell is weird. It’s Clyde’s point of view. Sarah Jane is obviously the main character. Luke is either second or third. Maria/Rani is probably actually second as the show is kinda told from their point of view and their curiosity. Clyde seems to tag along. Though this season, he is getting more to do. Also it ends with Sarah Jane asking him if he’s ready as she and Luke open the door. Rani isn’t there.

Sarah Jane is really dismissive.

What’s the point of moving the books back and forth if you stop before Sarah Jane looks?

That’s not a bad photograph for the 1600s.

This is a fun little horror film.

Mona Lisa’s Revenge

The extended Doctor Who universe is reminding me that no show since the original has taken any risks in theme music. Doctor Who‘s theme, especially Delia Derbyshire’s realization is so completely unique and unlike anything else in pop culture.

I like that they’re returning to Clyde’s drawing again.

Wow that was such a “you’re not my real mom” moment.

Russell Davies loves unrequited love. “Though, quit your moaning, love, do us all a favour” is exactly what I was thinking.

She does not look like Mona Lisa. How is she English? I understand that maybe if she’s in the Louvre, then she’s overhearing a lot of tourists and English is a common language. But why does she have an English accent?

That was quite some deus ex machina.

Hahaha! I didn’t expect the assistant to turn him down. YAY!

Doctor Who – The Waters of Mars

This aired in between episodes 10 and 11. So here’s a link to it.

The Gift

I don’t get why they are so enamoured with the Slitheen and use them so often.

I think that’s the same countdown screen as “Waters of Mars.”

The other shoe is gonna drop soon, isn’t it?

Found the shoe!

Poor Luke.

How is Luke not getting in trouble for bringing in K-9?

Oh good, he got caught with K-9, but the teacher didn’t do anything.

Luke is saved!

Sarah Jane needs some adult friends.

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 xx – The Sarah Jane Adventures Series 1

Revenge of the Slitheen part 1

God no. The Slitheen and more fart jokes.

That’s a worse principal than the one in the film I just watched, Moxie.

The Slitheen can control candle light?

This is kind of a charming episode.

That little pop sound as he exited his skin suit was great.

Revenge of the Slitheen part 2

You are in a car.

The child Slitheen is adorable.

Why does Sarah Jane’s basement have a single licence plate on the rafter and it’s from Ontario?

Doing some more research, there’s a theory that it’s a tribute to Sidney Newman, creator of Doctor Who. Or maybe TVO, who aired so much of Sarah Jane’s episodes of Doctor Who.

Also, apparently there’s a short story starring the seventh Doctor set in Toronto called “Christmas In Toronto.” I’m going to have to read that. Also, there’s a Gord Downie song called “Christmastime in Toronto” and I saw him perform that live with the Joel Plaskett Emergency at the Horseshoe Tavern.

The “Next time” on the previous episode showed them attacking the Slitheen with vinegar. I assume Mr Smith would tell them this, but it seems that they figured it out on their own. It’s pretty great.

“Vinegar in plastic squeezies.” I wish we called them squeezies.

Quite the epic shot of the slow-mo lipstick throwing shot.

Eye of the Gorgon part 1

Old lady living in creepy old house, makes sense the nun is there.

Oh, it’s an old folks home.

Maria’s mum is a horrible person.

So when Clyde is 40, he’ll be able to put his mind in a robot. I’ll be 60 or something like that. So that works for me. The actor who plays Clyde is 6 years younger than me. So 46… which is 2027.

The old lady knows about Sontarans.

Haha, there’s a Gorgon in this episode.1

The effect of the dad turning to stone is amazing.

Eye of the Gorgon part 2

It’s the eye of the Gorgon, it’s the thrill of the sight, rising up to the challenge of the stone stare.

I think with the dad stoned (tee hee) they’re going to be able to unstone him.

That hidden passageway reminds me so much of the 1960s batman series.

Aww, statue dad is crying.

Oh, they’re chanting “serve the Gorgon.”

So the talisman is what can return Pops to flesh, but she never says how.

So we know he was conscious during the stoning, so shouldn’t he be in excruciating pain? Also, they’re going to play it off that he’s dreamed it.

It’s a good thing Dad-Dad-Daddio doesn’t remember what happened, because as a parent, I would never let Sarah Jane Smith near my child. Unlike Rose Tyler who is an adult and can choose to go off on adventures, Maria is a child.

Are they going to cure Alzheimer’s? Oh good, they didn’t.

Warriors of Kudlak part 1

I need more children!!!!

Don’t spit on the street, asshole.

I wanna play laser tag.

Warriors of Kudlak part 2

Watch out for cricket man!

Where did Sarah get Mr Smith?

Their spaceship looks like a warehouse. Someone needs an interior decorator.

Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane? part 1

That’s obviously not the dad actor who is skateboarding.

For a kids’ show, this is pretty decent. I think I’d like this if I were 6 or 7.

Having a parent not believe you and having to lie that you remember Andrea.

Oh, that’s Jane Asher.

It’s a Graske!

Pop pop falling to aliens and alien tech is bad.

Wow, they could afford the Kinks.

Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane? part 2

I have a cat on my shoulder.

Andrea Yates is horrible.

Also child Sarah Jane looks nothing like Sarah Jane.

Sarah Jame Smith in Doctor Who

Andrea Yates is horrible.

The next episode looks sad.

The Lost Boy part 1

Last story of the season. We’re getting back to Torchwood, soon.

I’m interested in how this story of Maria’s dad knowing plays out. I did not expect to be this invested.

Oh shit, they’re evil!

Naughty naughty, teaching children how to skip class.

Oh god, the Slitheen again.

Oh shit, I didn’t see that twist.

The Lost Boy part 2

I just watched “Time Crash” and it was fun.

Mr Smith has a ray gun!

The Slitheen are the worst.

K-9!

Maria’s mum is now suddenly okay with Sarah Jane?

  1. I just typed Gordon. []

Doctor Who Story x – The Sarah Jane Adventures: Invasion of the Bane

Starting off with a voiceover. Not a good start.

The sound is really weird.

Looks like the Gelfling.

Sarah really doesn’t want to know them.

This lady is practically twirling her moustache.

Sonic lipstick, tee hee.

Whoever did that wide angled shot when Wormwood says “Sarah Jane Smith” needs to never work in television again.

“I am everyone.”

Oh, the belly button thing.

“Hello Maria, hello screaming girl.” I liked that.

Some good old fashioned alien repellent.

Oh Mr. Smith.

This is painful. Not sure how many episodes I’ll watch. It might not make it through all five seasons. The good thing is I have Doctor Who season 3 between this episode and the next.

This is a children’s’ show, so I’m not going to say what that sonic lipstick looks like.

Aww, she misses the Doctor. I do, too. I’d rather watch him with Martha, and that’s the next episode.

Doctor Who Serial X – Shada

Part One

Wow, this opening is wonderful. “SHADA!” I’ve never seen “Shada” before, so this should be a romp, or it will be terrible. Tom is having a ridiculous soliloquy. I wonder how much of this is going to be Tom Baker talking to himself.

Oh, we get opening credits!

Sleeping with your buddies is fun… More fun when you’re all sleeping around a ball on a glowing pyramid.

Is that Robert Webb? That dude looks a lot like Robert Webb. OH MY GOD! EVERYONE OTHER THAN ROBERT WEBB IS DOING A LITTLE SEAT DANCE!

Professor Chronotis? I’m guessing this guy is a time traveller.

He pulls a book fresh out of a bag from purchasing it, and starts it in the middle? It’s HG Wells’ The Time Machine. So he’s obviously a time traveller.

Damn, Robert Webb. I love your outfit!

There’s a LOT more footage than I expected. Tom Baker just had a quick interjection and it was his first one in 13 minutes.

I want Robert Webb’s outfit, SO MUCH!

Romana just said “I had it when I was a Time Tot.” Time Tot!!!! Why hasn’t NuWho ever used that phrase?

Part Two

I’m now learning that there’s a newer animated reconstruction.

“What’s that thing you strain ice with?” Why would you strain ice? Is he being eccentric or is the past weird?

OH NO! He has a bag of ball!

Beware the spheres! The Toclafane?

“You will give me everything in your mind”

The sphere is chasing the Doctor. This show really loves extremely slow chases.

Part Three

British guy fishing seems to be the most British a fisher could possibly be.

If you knock and no one answers, you don’t just go in. C’mon lady, he could be in the buff.

It’s a cloaked Klingon Bird of Prey. Captain Kirk and co. stole it, brought it back to the 20th century, parked it, and are out looking for new whales.

Yikes, that might be the worst chromakey I’ve ever seen.

“I let the sphere believe I was stupid.” That is total Doctor Who, fool electronics by pretending to be dumb.

Part Four

Let’s keep this going! This is gonna be great!

There’s too much exposition provided by Tom Baker to make this interesting to watch, but finally we have an actual scene. They’re using the sphere to read the Doctor’s mind again? This is what’s wrong with classic Who. They try a plot point and then do it again, because the stories are just plainly too long.

Part Five

I sometimes watch Doctor Who and wonder why they’re doing something and what they’re trying to achieve, and not sure if the actors or screenwriters even know. Like the opening scene, the Doctor is falling towards the monster, it swings its arm and attacks the Doctor in slow motion. Why was the Doctor going to get in position to be hit? What were the stage directions?

I forgot Robert Webb was in this.

None of my Doctor Who blog posts make any sense whatsoever.

Director: Okay, I want you to exit this room in such a way that is extremely awkward. Make sure that you don’t show what’s behind the door.

Part Six

“I burst through the nearest door.” He really did burst through that door. Good describing, Tom Baker.

This episode has a lot more narration than the rest of the serial, but that’s not surprising.

I love Douglas Adams, but he was wrong to think that watching two people try to hold levers is interesting.
