Doctor Who Serial 128 – The King’s Demons

Part One

Can we talk about the disembodied heads in the opening credits for a second… why? Who thought this was a good idea? Who thought you should keep doing that 20 years later? They do it until the end of the classic run, and honestly, they shouldn’t.

Oooo, a royal feast. Yum yum yum.

If the King calls you “Lord Doctor,” does that mean you have a seat in the House of Lords?

“We take your council, demon.” I’m liking this story already.

So the king seems strange, and I know Anthony Ainley is in this episode. So I’m pretty sure that it’s the Master.

The Doctor has 20 layers. Tegan is cold. Doctor, lend her your jacket.

So he takes his jacket off for a sword fight, but not Tegan.

Oh! I was wrong about who the Master is masquerading as, that’s a nice surprised.

Part Two

Oh my! It’s the Master!

The Doctor isn’t going to murder the Master. That’s not how Doctor Who works.

How does Turlough know the Master?

I kinda want to see Monty Python do this whole episode. Graham Chapman as King John, John Cleese as the Doctor, Michael Palin as the Master, Terry Jones as Tegan, Eric Idle as Turlough and Terry Gilliam as Ranulf Fitzwilliam.

Michael Palin would be amazing as the Master.

That cutting of shots of the Doctor and the Master speeding up is exactly why Doctor Who is horrible.

The Master’s evil laugh is amazing.

Is the eye of orion a euphemism?
