Doctor Who Serial 096 – Underworld

Part One

Doctor, don’t tell your friends to shut up. You can be such an asshole.

“Time ships of the Gods!”

I like their mellow gun. I want a gun you can shoot at someone and it’s as if they took a deep toke.1

These people have regenerated a thousand times. That’s pretty cool. So why do the Time Lords have a limit on regeneration?

“He’s my second best friend, aren’t you, K9?” “Affirmative.” I don’t like dogs, I’m a cat person, but I would totally take a K9.

Leela being angry about getting stoned against her will is fucking hilarious. But also consent is important.

Unrelated, my house smells good, I’m making roasted potatoes.

“The canisters are degrading!”

Part Two

Ahh! They’re crashing!

So there’s multiple species at war on this proto-planet that looks like it’s a green screen.

I don’t quite get why the ship people are now okay with a Time Lord around, but they seem to like the Doctor.

Part Three

Wow, that guy’s sitting in clouds of gas and doesn’t notice for quite some time.

“No time? Don’t say that to me, I’m a Time Lord!” Lines like that are why Tom Baker is considered the best Doctor.

“It’s zero gravity like in space,” oh the special effects are going to be amazing! I love that the Doctor is flapping his scarf like a bird.

REVOLUTION! This is the second story where the Doctor incites revolution.

K9 is surprisingly mobile on those rocky rocks. Except, they’re all in a blue screen room with a completely flat floor and I’m not sure why.

HAHAHA! The executioner people look like Minions.

Part Four

This story is really bad. In addition, the special effects are terrible, even for Doctor Who standards. It’s like they decided to try to push beyond their means and fell on their face.

Why does Doctor Who and all 60s and 70s sci-fi think having a computer run a civilization is a bad thing?

  1. I’m allowed to talk about that, I’m Canadian, it’s legal here. []

Doctor Who Serial 095 – The Sun Makers

Part One

Pluto, the distant future. The planet has been terraformed and is now orbited by artificial suns, provided by the rapacious company who ruthlessly exploit the relocated human workforce. The Doctor, Leela, and K9 arrive and befriend a luckless drone worker, but they must flee with him to the dark undercity…

Umm, actually, Pluto isn’t a planet.

This episode seems to be an anti-tax creed.

I was about to comment on the Doctor’s comment on machine minds being feeble, but then K9 proved him wrong. Hooray for K9.

The rooftop scene where the Doctor and Leela save the over-taxed dude from suicide is hilarious and wonderful.

Oh, he called the Doctor “citizen” so this is a parallel to communism, comrade.

I think the Doctor should let Leela cut someone’s heart out. She really wants to.

Part Two

Doctor, don’t you know that smoking isn’t healthy?

That Plutonian has a really big thumbnail, like the size of my big toe nail… and I wear size 14 shoes.

That dude needs some glasses.

This guy looks like Fred Willard and sounds like Michael Palin.

The Doctor totally wants to bang her.

That guard is incompetent.

“Hmm, tell me Citizen Doc-tor.”

The Plutonians wear great hats.

Part Three

That steering wheel doesn’t seem like it’s usable.

K9 saying that duplication is unnecesary when the Doctor was already halfway through the duplication. So he could either walk back to stop the duplication or walk back to finish the duplication.

The CEO reminds me of terrible Doctor Who villain Max Capricorn.

I have a feeling Leela isn’t about to die.

Part Four

Looking at the title of this episode, I’m wondering when they’re going to explain what “Sun Makers” are and why Pluto has so many suns. Is it like Star Trek where they were talking about worshipping the sun, but meant the son (Jesus)?

Oh yeah, they’re killing Leela. Whoever cast this guy as the villain is terrible.

An aside. I’m watching WKRP, as well as Doctor Who. Not at the same time. Why is Jennifer thought as the hot one, Bailey’s much better looking.

Okay, so this episode isn’t anti-tax as much as it is pro-worker.

Workers of the world, unite!

The Communist Manifesto (1848) by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels

Grinding oppression of the masses is the only policies that pays dividends.

Let’s revolt! End capitalism!

Why are they cracking the safe when they should be busy putting out the message to the masses announcing the revolution?

HAHA! Throwing Fred Willard off the building was amazing.

So they mean literal suns.

I think the Doctor won and the people are free.

That was so British. Man runs in “sorry I’m late.”

Doctor Who Serial 093 – The Invisible Enemy

Part One

That’s the weirdest design for the bridge of a shuttle craft. Also, are they in la-z-boys?

Oh, the Doctor switched back to the main control room. That’s nice. Except he’s calling it the “number two control room.” I disagree.

C’mon! Have a drink before you shoot people. That’s the least you could do.

Damn, Leela, that hat looks good on you.

That knife looked like rubber. I needed a “BOING” sound effect.

Part Two

I forgot that K9 shows up at some point in this story. I can’t wait for that. Also, really digging this soundtrack while the Doctor is in hospital.

That receptionist is so rude. “Computer says no.”

K9! He’s there! “Affirmative, master!” I didn’t know he was a medical doggy before he was a time traveller.

I like that their English has migrated over the past 3000 years and the spelling on all the walls have changed.

The doctor who is attending the Doctor made K9 because he was lonely. That’s so lovely.

This is overexposed.

Hmm, 4th millenium when we first cloned… they forgot about Dolly.

Nice that Gallifreyan technology is compatible with Human technology from this century.

“I’m shrinking, and my clothes are shrinking too, and my voice is getting higher in proportion to my shrinking!” Mahatma Gandhi

Part Three

Oh god, clone Doctor and clone Leela are being flushed down the toilet.

How convenient it is that the wall K9 was going to blast already had cut marks!

“That is why my brain is so much superior to yours.” God damn, you’re an asshole, Doctor.

Hahaha! Leela is being attacked by balloons.

NO! They made contact with K9!

Yay, K9 is better, but his master has been taken over by the virus.

Hahaha! How did he walk around the Nucleus and not see it?

Part Four

Let’s do this! Part four, yeah! I’m enjoying this one.

HAHAHAHA! The nucleus cannot move, so the other actors have to help it.

Poor K9, he’s getting blowed up. Aww, he has a leash.

Leela was barely pinning that guy down. I think she was killing him with underarm smell.

The Doctor got K9 as a gift from his doctor. That’s really nice.
