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… Read More »Doctor Who Story xx – The Sarah Jane Adventures Series 1

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… Read More »Doctor Who Story x – The Sarah Jane Adventures: Invasion of the Bane

Doctor Who Story 170 – School Reunion

Tardisode Oh, it’s about Mickey. I really hoped it would be a precursor with Sarah Jane Smith. Episode Anthony Head! Yes! I love Giles. When you work in a school, do not eat children. It’s a bad idea. You should know better Giles, you usually just arm the children and make them kill vampires. Now you’re a beast and dining on children. I would like to have the Doctor as my teacher. Upset Rose is fantastic. Sarah Jane! Aww, the look on the Doctor’s face is so nice. He shows how the audience should feel to have perhaps the most iconic companion back on the show. It’s glee, and I… Read More »Doctor Who Story 170 – School Reunion

Doctor Who Serial xx – Dimensions in Time

Part One Jon Pertwee looks great! I have no idea who this person Pertwee is talking to, but it’s just the intro. Wow, those models of Hartnell and Troughton are terrible. As is this version of the theme, terrible. Tom Baker is great, “the grumpy one and the flautist.” McCoy’s hair is too long, the hippy! Wow, that doesn’t look like 2013. I feel like they’re trying to smoosh in too many lines for too many people. Susan looks good. I forgot how much I hate Peri’s terrible accent. I’m voting for Big Ron. Part Two “We’re helping Children in Need in Crinkly Bottom” wait, what??? Of course, Bessy makes… Read More »Doctor Who Serial xx – Dimensions in Time

Doctor Who Serial 129 – The Five Doctors

Doctor Who loves that “One day, I shall come back” clip. Richard Hurndall doesn’t look much like William Hartnell. “Just a twinge of ‘Cosmic Angst.’” That’s my band name. Cosmic Angst. The nerdy teenagers will love it! God damn, just 30 seconds with Patrick Troughton makes me happy. He’s so good. Best Doctor. The Brigadier says that someone is his replacement and Troughton replies, “yes, mine was pretty unpromising, too.” Now I have no idea how he knows that as a character, but damn, I love that line, so much. Jon Pertwee’s abduction wasn’t as great as I would have wanted. Sarah Jane has a greater part to play in… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 129 – The Five Doctors

Doctor Who Serial x – K9 and Company

The opening credits might be the greatest thing that’s ever been in the Doctor Who universe. K9! Peter Tracy is a looker. Sarah should go for him. God, I would never stay at my aunt’s place if within 10 minutes of arriving 3 strangers showed up to see how I was doing. Jesus, just let her be. Wow, Ward knows way too much about a future robotic dogs. I think this is the first Doctor Who christmas episode. K9 is very obviously a robot dog and not the familiar of a witch. Peter Tracy doesn’t want to be a witch. So Sarah Jane leaves someone’s house. They are rude and… Read More »Doctor Who Serial x – K9 and Company

Doctor Who Serial 113 – Warriors’ Gate

Part One This feels like a Beckett play. “We have lift off,” two bored dudes shout, “yay!” Okay as this goes on, this feels more and more like a Beckett play. Every time they say “time winds” I assume they are talking about “time farts.” The dude just said more people were coming. Why don’t Adric or Romana think it’ll happen? “Give me a printout.” Part Two Cobwebs and skeletons, they’re covered in grime1. Vladimir and Estrogan are still sitting in the same spot, providing commentary. I think I missed something, why is K9 walking backwards? “This is important, I need you to do it.” “Energy levels critical.” “Oh, come… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 113 – Warriors’ Gate

Doctor Who Serial 112 – State of Decay

Part One This felt like Monty Python for a second. The Great One is rising, and wikipedia told me that he is a vampire. I’m afraid of this episode. I hope it’s not as bad as… “Immature humanoid, non-hostile.” K9 is very descriptive about Adric. Oh man! That cross dissolve to the bat was supposed to be dramatic… it was not. C’mon Adric, they’re giving you soup, now you’re asking for cheese? Part Two You call that a tower? My apartment building is much bigger. Romana needs to learn how to clink glasses without cutting herself. I’m liking Adric. Part Three People too often want to share power with the… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 112 – State of Decay

Doctor Who Serial 111 – Full Circle

Part One Apparently it’s Adric’s first episode. I don’t know if that’s a good thing. Let’s find out. Who blocked this shot? The Doctor is having a conversation with K9 and he’s hidden. I like that Romana wants to stay on the TARDIS, but the Doctor should help her. As those people stacking watermelons? Are they fishing for watermelons? Or is that squash? Yes, definitely squash. Doctor Who‘s incidental music is some of the worst incidental music. Part Two This episode is very boring. That dude looks like Peter Davison. Part Three Oh, the squash is an egg for terrible arachnid puppets. Oh no! They’re attacking Romana! This set is… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 111 – Full Circle

Doctor Who Serial 110 – Meglos

Part One The first few minutes of this, I don’t feel like Romana and the Doctor are equals. She needs the Doctor to fix K9, but I think she should be able to do that. That dude’s wig is poorly fitted. Aww, someone likes the Doctor and WANTS him to visit. I think I could do a better green screen than the Doctor Who crew, and trust me, I can’t do one. So Meglos is a sentient cactus. At least it’s not a man in a rubber suit.1 The cactus put his mind into the nerd. Finally Romana is trying to fix K9. My video failed exactly at the start… Read More »Doctor Who Serial 110 – Meglos
