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 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 Story xx – Torchwood series 2

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang

I’ve gotta say, the old lady saying “Bloody Torchwood,” might be my favourite part of the series.

SPIKE!

He breezed into that bar.

Gwen needs to tell Jack that he needs to be honest with her if she’s ever going to trust him again.

Oh fuck you, Jack! Stop telling people that your history doesn’t matter.

The stupid western vibe is ridiculous, but I enjoy it.

Glad Doctor Who has some good make-outs, thanks to Torchwood.

Oh, Ianto is having none of Jack’s bullshit. Maybe not, he did accept his date.

Aww, he killed Jack. :(

Is it good to throw a bomb into the rift? Could that not cause other problems?

“No hard feelings, well, not in that sense.” Who writes this shit?

Sleeper

Stop saying “the doctor” when you don’t mean “the Doctor.”

Owen’s an asshole.

You should not be casual about a hospital losing power.

“I know who she is and why she’s here.” Maybe you should fill your team in.

Why is Owen tending to his plants during a company meeting?

Just leaving her baby and letting it roll into traffic.

To The Last Man

Once again, Tosh comes across as a creepy lady.

The lady who saw Gwen in the hospital is great.

How old is Tosh if a 24 year old is too young for her?

Ianto and Jack making out!

Season 2 is a definitely drop in quality.

Meat

Oh, Rhys, such a lad.

Now I feel sad for Rhys.

Jack, she’s your underling. Don’t talk to alien blowjobs.

Yeah, show Rhys everything and show him how bad you are at health standards.

Tosh needs to move on from Owen.

“Team meeting,” he proclaims while they’re in the middle of a team meeting.

This episode reminds me of the horse meat episode of Due South.

Adam

It’s a Torchwood episode about me.

Well, that’s a creepy memory to implant and make Tosh snog him.

Somehow he’s changed Owen’s personality 100%.

Don’t date someone in Torchwood.

Owen is a nerd!

Poor Ianto.

“No pride. No warmth.” Jack, do you feel that for Tosh?

Reset

Stop, Martha Time!

That first person POV, ugh.

Martha is working with UNIT, apparently.

I’d so much rather they keep Martha than Owen.

This is a really bad episode.

“What’s his dabbling like?” “Innovative. Bordering on avant-garde.”

Those security guards are bad at their jobs.

I wouldn’t trust Owen with that.

Oh Jack, you asshole, you’re keeping Weavels captive and using them to torture human prisoners to get information.

Now if only they’d keep Owen dead…

Dead Man Walking

What the hell is with that child tarot card reader?

So there are a lot more weavels than we thought and they are just hanging out in Cardiff? So why do they trap some?

This is so bad.

Do they just visit every weavel from after they arrive in Cardiff and give them a standard issue boiler suit? Who does their laundry?

This is a really bad episode and Martha isn’t around enough.

It’s Thing from Addams Family!

“Hey remember when we made Old Man makeup for David Tenant? Remember how horrible it was? Let’s do it again with Freema!”

Ianto’s now a hacker.

Are we supposed to be okay that it’s killed eight people, but yet care about this one random child?

How did Martha get back to normal?

A Day in the Death

Owen telling a lady on the rooftop that he’s dead is pretty irresponsible.

I wouldn’t trust Jack.

Dead Boy is angry.

Teenagers and dead people, so angsty.

“Jack, you get to live forever, I get to die together.”

This is so over-dramatic!

Beating up someone is kinder than calling him and telling him his wife was in an accident and is in hospital.

Something Borrowed

My file was corrupted, I needed to rerip the DVD, but we’re back and ready to go.

Her bridesmaids are horrible.

That stripper was really fast. You need to make a show out of it. You’re not going to win any hearts like that.

Good thing Rhys knows about Torchwood, she can say why she’s pregnant.

Apparently Jesus was half-alien.

My bachelor party was a lot better.

What’s she going to say to her family when they ask about the baby?

She’s really telling her parents that she’s knocked up? What’s she going to do in a few weeks? “Oh, the baby is dead.”

That is a terrible wedding dress.

Yeah, shooting in the middle of a wedding, great idea.

You’re so creepy, Jack.

So if that ain’t Jack, and Gwen was going along, does that mean that Gwen thinks Jack loves her?

If they had done the whole assembling the gun thing and then had Rhys kill her with the chainsaw, that would have been so much better.

Well, they got married.

Jack, dress up for a wedding, jeez.

They wiped the memories of all the wedding guests, but someone died and nobody cares about it.

From Out of the Rain

Oh my! The film ghost shows up without the film.

I’m so bored with this episode already.

Wow, I actually laughed at that.

Bad Jack! Don’t sscare people from looking at old film reels, the BBC wants people to look at all the old film reels to try to find all the missing episodes of Doctor Who.

Adrift

I remember the resolution of this episode, but I don’t remember why.

Gwen and Rhys should get divorced, not have babies.

Why did she want to keep the negative spikes from everyone else at Torchwood, she doesn’t know that Jack is involved. She also has no assumptions, yet.

She doesn’t know what GPS is. It’s 2008. Was GPS that new?

Jack, you have these people in prison, that’s not cool. Your ends do not justify the means.

So he just screams for 20 hours?

This show is so bad.

Fragments

Don’t lock the wheels, that’s why we have ABS.

Well, they’re all dead, that was a quick episode

1300 odd deaths in only a couple of hundred years?

Fish man is back!

Is being queer a prerequisite for working at Torchwood Cardiff?

Oh, it’s everyone’s origin story.

This might be the best episode of the season.

I don’t believe UNIT is beyond human rights.

Look at Ianto’s belt! The studs!

His necklace!

At least he has a suit this time.

The pterodactyl looks so bad.

So Jack and Ianto were fucking from day one?

HAHAHAHA! The tentacle.

It’s Spike!

Exit Wounds

Why is he sending Rhys? Rhys? He has no training or knowledge of what’s going on. This is ridiculous.

Spike…

He’s not anti-bondage, he just wants consent.

Eye candy!

Why is Gwen believing Spike and not shooting him as soon as he stands up and starts advancing towards her?

Why did he rip his skin off and not wait for it to finish unbonding?

Gwen shouldn’t have stopped Ianto.

Oh shock, surprise! Grey locks them all in cells as they drag the weavels into there.

Dear nuclear physicist, don’t leave Owen alone, help him.

“Tosh, talk to me, I need your help, babe!” Did you really need the “babe?”

This stupid childish plot is really dumb.

Tosh and Owen are dead and I’m good with that.

Jack is an idiot and is keeping his brother alive and frozen. The dude is terrorist who killed hundreds? Thousands? Caused a nuclear power station to meltdown. The dude has no sense of good.

Doctor Who Story 187 – Utopia/The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords

Utopia

Jack gripping onto the TARDIS screaming “DOCTOR!” Is great.

Chantho is a terrible concept.

David Tennant’s gleeful smile at the thought of exploring this world is the best.

I love Martha and Jack together.

Still using projectile weapons at the end of the universe.

The Professor seems to recognize the TARDIS.

The Doctor can be angry, too angry.

God, the flashing of Y-A-N-A is horrible.

I really like Derek Jacobi as the Master.

The Sound of Drums

I don’t think Russell Davies understands how parliamentary democracies work.

John Simm’s scowl face is perfection.

The comical time bomb attached to the TV is so Looney Tunes.

That was a lot of bouncing bullets for a tiny car.

John Simm is perfection!

Jack also having a crush on the Doctor is great.

Wait, when Missy was a lady and the Doctor was Peter Capaldi, why didn’t they fuck and procreate and repopulate the Time Lord species?

“Jelly baby?”

President-Elect? And he gets to fly on Air Force One?

Oh, the old man make up…

Last of the Time Lords

Martha Jones is indeed a bit of a legend.

“I’m traveling with a doctor.” GET IT???? GET IT????

This is the campest episode of the campest show.

Oh Martha, it’s been a year, give up on your silly crush. Help the Doctor and the world, but don’t think of him as a potential boyfriend.

ONE POINT TWENTY-ONE JIGGAWATTS!

The super old, tiny Doctor in a birdcage is horrible.

Oh god, the resolution of this episode is so bad.

The Doctor is vengeful, and yet he forgive the Master who killed so much of humanity.

I think the resolution of this story might be the lowest point in Doctor Who history. What the fuck was Russell Davies thinking?

Doctor Who Story 186 – Blink

That is the best opening of Doctor Who history, I think. Though it’s also the best episode, too.

“I love old things, they make me feel sad.” “What’s good about sad?” “It’s happy for deep people.” That is the stupidest thing anyone’s ever said, and of course it’s written by Moffatt.

The creepy moving weeping angel, between shots is so great.

The Doctor on the DVD is great, and the guy in the video shop telling the screen “go to the police, you stupid woman!”

I’m surprised that Sally is able to get into the police garage without an officer.

It’s convenient he lives until after he leaves.

I love her talking to the DVD and Martha’s interjections.

Doctor Who Story 185 – Human Nature/The Family of Blood

Human Nature

This story starts so well!

How bold of a lady to ask the Doctor out. It’s 1913, know your place, Matron!

Matron, Martha’s a physician, she might know more.

There’s something about this story that really feels like 1980s Doctor Who.

Creepy looking dude is about to get creepy.

“I said hello,” could you be any more British?

I think the drawings are the first time we knew for sure that the TV movie was considered canon and Paul McGann was the Doctor.

Ugh, little girl with balloons.

I love his parents being Sidney and Verity.

Creepy guy is so creepy!

The Family of Blood

The Doctor ringing a bell to take arms is wrong… that’s why it’s good he’s John Smith and not the Doctor.

“Banes and one of the cleaning staff, there’s always a woman involved.”

The scarecrows could’ve been a great recurring villain.

As soon as she killed the headmaster, a student should have fired.

The panicked John Smith not wanting to be the Doctor is sad.

I love that the ending is that the Doctor was trying to be kind to them by hiding, them forcing him free meant he had to give them their wish of eternal life and punish them.

Doctor Who Story 184 – 42

I just noticed as the Doctor fixes Martha’s mobile phone that she has a landline.

I feel bad for Martha’s mother.

Wow, this is a boring episode. Not as bad as I remembered, but so so so boring.

Doctor Who Story 183 – The Lazarus Experiment

Don’t touch Martha’s undies.

You’re an asshole, Doctor. Martha has more than proven herself.

Creepy dude creeping.

“Do you think I’d spend another lifetime with you?” Wow dude.

Martha’s mother should be concerned by the Doctor.

This episode is better than I remembered. Not great, but not so terrible.

Tee hee, he reversed the polarity.

How did playing the organ save the world?

We’re half way through the season and Martha’s only now a companion.
