Doctor Who Story 182 – Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks

Daleks in Manhattan

Oh, those New York accents.

Are the pigs related to the ones from the Slitheen episode?

Pretty rude to walk through a community and talk about the people as if they aren’t there.

*gasp* There are Daleks!

This is my favourite “Manhattan” story…

Panels of Dalek bumps.

Evolution of the Daleks

Aww, I liked Solomon.

“Never waste time with a hug.” Oh Doctor, you’ve never been more wrong.

Oh the Frankensteinian dropping of the bodies from the ceiling.

Now, do they remember their military training from World War I? Or were they injected with Dalek military training altered for a human form.

I want a Dalek gun, those look fun.


Shut up about Cardiff and New York not being the same, this is not the first time a production had to pretend one city was another city.

“They got a whole area designed to look like downtown Toronto. That’s where they shoot the stuff that’s set in New York.”

— Miles, Intern on The Judge: BoJack Horseman season 4, episode 8

Wow, this whole second part of Confidential seems to be about the exact same thing the first part is… Cardiff standing in for New York.

Why did the make Confidential longer when they have nothing to say?

Doctor Who Story 181 – Gridlock

The Doctor is a jerk for taking Martha to New New York. You never pined for Jamie and he was the best companion.

I want some happy.

Martha’s quick to judge drug use while pregnant in the distant future. She doesn’t know how these drugs affect a baby in utero.

Kitty cat!


They shouldn’t write this homophobic cat in a way that makes us want to like him.

Oh yeah, I forgot the Macra were the baddies in this one.

They’re all singing, this is horrible.

The bat person makeup is horrible.

Think of all the exhaust coming up and going down and all those cars he’s opened up.

That highway cleared up really quickly.

So the Face of Boe says that he’s the last of his kind. Isn’t Jack human?

Doctor Who Story 180 – The Shakespeare Code

Okay, the ridiculous witches are great. I don’t remember liking this episode, but that was fun.

Okay, I was right, the episode was titled this based on “The DaVinci Code” which was a horrible book.

The butterfly effect is important and I love that the Doctor just brushes it off. He also brushes off Martha’s race, but that’s kinda an important factor her time traveling and not something Davies is talented enough to address in a children’s show.

Does the author go to every performance of his shows? Why would you should “Author” at the end of a show?

Shakespeare is gross.

The Globe is smaller than I would think.

No matter how bad an episode, David Tennant makes it fun.


That was a good “Harry Potter” reference. Go, Martha!

Not as bad as I remembered.

Doctor Who Story 179 – Smith and Jones

I forgot that we start through the eyes of Martha, and we meet her family right away. I like this.

Martha’s dad’s girlfriend is horrible.

The Doctor giving Martha his tie (somewhat randomly) is awesome. David Tennant is great.

That old lady is the baddie.

It’s really quick why I remember that Martha is my favourite of Tennant’s companions. She is lovely.

The people just screaming because they’re on the moon are ridiculous. Sure that’s unexpected, but I think I’d be more in awe than panic.

The Doctor is an asshole. “Not her, she’ll hold us up.” Though, he is right.

The Doctor likes her.

It’s a good thing the hospital’s backup power was brought to the moon. Otherwise there’d be some really bad stuff happening.

The Jadoon ship design is meh. It’s a troop transporter, I’d make it horizontal, not vertical.

Okay, panic when the Jadoon come makes more sense.

The squeak of the Sharpies is great.

Okay, Martha asks if they’re being arrested for trespassing on the moon. That makes no sense, because they just said that the Jadoon brought them to the moon. So the Doctor thinking Martha is clever.

David Tennant’s Doctor running through corridors is always fun.

How much oxygen did the Jadoon use up while chasing the bad lady? They could have used their spacesuits.


I don’t think the producers understand what makes the show fun.

Also, the way they talk about Freema is gross.
