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 xx – The Sarah Jane Adventures series 3

Prisoner of the Judoon

They’ve added a saga sell to the beginning of the episodes. Quantum Leap always had the best one.

Watching The Sarah Jane Adventures right after Torchwood‘s “Children of Earth” makes me think that Jack should have called Sarah Jane. She has expertise of working with children.

How does Sarah Jane know about the Judoon?

I love the spray bottle.

“Mr Smith, if your central processor fully functional?”

Well that escalated quickly. Mr Smith is going to blow up all of Bannerman Road.

Wow, Elizabeth Sladen is terrible at playing the baddy. I hate saying this.

Wow, I think that’s the first contract security that act realistically. Running away because they should.

Oh wow, Sarah Jane talking to herself via the mirror is so bad.

The Mad Woman in the Attic

That’s Rani.

Clyde’s a good drawer.

I’m only 7 minutes in and it’s so BORING.

These kids blab way too much about their alien hunting.

Let’s finish this story before lunch…

I really don’t like the structure of this episode. Framing it from old lady Rani is terrible.

K-9!

This is a pretty positive story. It’s just bad.

The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith

The Doctor is in this episode. Also, she has an alien boyfriend or something like that. It would be nice if Sarah Jane had a boyfriend… or a girlfriend would be good too.

Mr Smith and K-9 need to be friends with one another.

There’s a TARDIS sound!

Peter and Gita don’t rhyme. British people are so weird.

The CG slug is horrible, but K-9 is adorable.

“Luke says she’s never been to his place.” As if! Where do you think they’re getting down to it? Have you seen how small her car is? They’re not teenagers, that’s going to hurt their backs.

The Brigadier is in Peru, apparently the actor had a stroke recently and wasn’t able to come. It’s a shame. It would’ve been great.

Doctor, the TARDIS needs a tune up.

“Stop this wedding, now!” Screams the Doctor as he barges into the ceremony. “Master!” Says K-9

Why does the Doctor have a grager, is he Jewish? Haman, BOOOOOOOOOOOO!

The kids are shit out of luck without the Doctor.

I love stealth K-9.

I love when David Tennant’s Doctor pretends to be mad and cruel.

I would have loved to see Tom Baker in The Sarah Jane Adventures.

The Eternity Trap

The saga sell is weird. It’s Clyde’s point of view. Sarah Jane is obviously the main character. Luke is either second or third. Maria/Rani is probably actually second as the show is kinda told from their point of view and their curiosity. Clyde seems to tag along. Though this season, he is getting more to do. Also it ends with Sarah Jane asking him if he’s ready as she and Luke open the door. Rani isn’t there.

Sarah Jane is really dismissive.

What’s the point of moving the books back and forth if you stop before Sarah Jane looks?

That’s not a bad photograph for the 1600s.

This is a fun little horror film.

Mona Lisa’s Revenge

The extended Doctor Who universe is reminding me that no show since the original has taken any risks in theme music. Doctor Who‘s theme, especially Delia Derbyshire’s realization is so completely unique and unlike anything else in pop culture.

I like that they’re returning to Clyde’s drawing again.

Wow that was such a “you’re not my real mom” moment.

Russell Davies loves unrequited love. “Though, quit your moaning, love, do us all a favour” is exactly what I was thinking.

She does not look like Mona Lisa. How is she English? I understand that maybe if she’s in the Louvre, then she’s overhearing a lot of tourists and English is a common language. But why does she have an English accent?

That was quite some deus ex machina.

Hahaha! I didn’t expect the assistant to turn him down. YAY!

Doctor Who – The Waters of Mars

This aired in between episodes 10 and 11. So here’s a link to it.

The Gift

I don’t get why they are so enamoured with the Slitheen and use them so often.

I think that’s the same countdown screen as “Waters of Mars.”

The other shoe is gonna drop soon, isn’t it?

Found the shoe!

Poor Luke.

How is Luke not getting in trouble for bringing in K-9?

Oh good, he got caught with K-9, but the teacher didn’t do anything.

Luke is saved!

Sarah Jane needs some adult friends.

Doctor Who story xx – The Sarah Jane Adventures series 2

The Last Sontaran

Oh my god! The UI on her music player. The past was so weird.

Goblin’s Copse? That’s the name of the village? British people are weird.

Call an ambulance, she hit her head.

Oh yeah, call the police, too. There’s a missing person.

Sarah Jane is being a bitch to Maria.

It’s a cloaked Sontaran!

I’m impressed by the Sontaran actor’s ability to run in that costume.

Call UNIT, Maria and Luke! Or at least call Mr Smith and have him call UNIT. They could have brought Martha into The Sarah Jane Adventure.

I really like the single balloon falling around when Mr Smith opens.

I wish they weren’t dragging out Maria leaving for America. It’s nice that she got one more story, but maybe introduce the idea near the end of the episode.

They let the Sontaran go? They should have arrested him, he attempted genocide.

The Day of the Clown

It’s the Rani!!!! Why would they name their character with the same name as a major Doctor Who character.

They’re really hitting us with the “Rani is going to be a main character” stick.

Doctor Who got rid of the serialized stories back in 2005. Why did they decide to bring it back for Sarah Jane?

Move quickly, jeez!

Why is Sarah Jane so scared of clowns?

Would any teenager not try to attach themselves to Sarah Jane’s world?

I wish her friend at the Pharos Institute was another Doctor Who companion.

Oh god, bad jokes are the solution to the episode.

So if all the children just arrive, does that include all those German kids from the Pied Piper tale?

Secrets of the Stars

This lady should listen to an astrology podcast.

I guess they already told Rani that Luke wasn’t born, because she’s taking it easily.

HAHAHAHA! He says Chair-yl for Cheryl! I used to have a boss who did that, Cheryl didn’t like it.

He’s talking about the Doctor.

The flashback is with David Tennant, when he’s talking about meeting the Doctor and him leaving her… it should have been Jon Pertwee or Tom Baker.

“Truman is human.” Truman is a true man!

“Is she your companion?” Yes, very much, Rani is Sarah Jane’s companion. I don’t think they’re ever referred to as such, but Rani, Luke and Clyde are Sarah’s companions, and Gwen and Ianto are Jack’s companions.

Clyde is Jesus.

Luke not having a star sign will mean he can’t be controlled and will save the day.

“It’s time for Cancer to join the circle.” Chevron two is locked!

I just learned that in a new block I can type /gif and get a Giphy block.

Oh shit, children of Scorpio are joining the circle. That’s ME!

Yay! I was right about Luke!

HAHAHA! He called her “Cheryl” with the proper pronunciation, not “Chair-yl.”

The Mark of the Berserker

They have a character named Rani. Why isn’t there an episode called “Mark of the Rani?”

Starts off with naughty kids.

Don’t you hate when your tattoos spread?

Jacob is an asshole.

Oh god! And Rani know has the pendent? And they’re not calling it the Mark of the Rani?

Uh oh, she now has the mark of the Rani! Also, fuck her for the cruel shit she’s doing to her dad.

I want sandwiches.

Clyde, you idiot. Don’t show your dad all this shit.

Clyde’s dad is a shitbag.

Oh my god! The slug! I love it.

Maria, don’t tell your dad to shut up.

He’s going to hack into a military database?

Clyde is an asshole. That dude is going to get fired for giving away a car.

They should have called Martha.

Is the sitting area in the attic new? It’s nice.

The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith

Uh oh! Oscar is trying to trick Sarah Jane.

The theme music reminds me of Harry Potter.

  1. Don’t do it!
  2. Don’t do it in that terrible outfit.

It’s a village fete! So British.

Did Sarah Jane’s mum say, “I’m Brabra?” What kind of name is Brabra?

Don’t be naughty, Sarah Jane.

Oscar the Grask!

The Trickster is a jackass.

Oh, that ain’t the TARDIS.

“Are you two having a laugh?”

“Yes, ethnic person in the 1950s.”

This episoe is actually sad. Poor Sarah Jane.

Hahaha! The Trickster just sounded like Noel Fielding when he said, “Oh no! Stop them!”

That’s some cheap-ass vortex manipulator, able to crush it with one stomp.

Enemy of the Bane

I think I’m supposed to know who Wormwood is, but I don’t.

Thank you for assuming I’m a dumb child, she was the lady who made Luke in the pilot.

Never give up, never surrender!

Hahaha! Stunned Rani mother is hilarious.

I didn’t realize that the Black Archive happened before the 50th Anniversary episode.

Yay! The Brigadier.

Wow, those guards are horrible at their jobs. The blanket covering Sarah Jane is a bit obvious.

Sarah Jane’s house gets destroyed way too often.

Sontaran? That was unexpected.

They learned the true intentions of Wormwood really quickly. That’s kinda surprising.

Hahahaha! Wormwood is an idiot for trusting Luke.

The Major is an asshole. Uh oh! The Major is an alien!

This is way too Darth Vader-esque.

Clyde tending to the injured Sontaran, that’s actually nice character growth.

From Raxacoricofallapatorius with Love

I’m skipping ahead. I should watch “The Next Doctor” and the Proms before I get to this little mini-episode, but I don’t think anything in continuity will be ruined by watching this first.

K-9!

That was no “Time Crash.”

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 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 much of Sarah Jane’s episodes of Doctor Who.

Also, apparently there’s a short story starring the seventh Doctor set in Toronto called “Christmas In Toronto.” I’m going to have to read that. Also, there’s a Gord Downie song called “Christmastime in Toronto” and I saw him perform that live with the Joel Plaskett Emergency at the Horseshoe Tavern.

The “Next time” on the previous episode showed them attacking the Slitheen with vinegar. I assume Mr Smith would tell them this, but it seems that they figured it out on their own. It’s pretty great.

“Vinegar in plastic squeezies.” I wish we called them squeezies.

Quite the epic shot of the slow-mo lipstick throwing shot.

Eye of the Gorgon part 1

Old lady living in creepy old house, makes sense the nun is there.

Oh, it’s an old folks home.

Maria’s mum is a horrible person.

So when Clyde is 40, he’ll be able to put his mind in a robot. I’ll be 60 or something like that. So that works for me. The actor who plays Clyde is 6 years younger than me. So 46… which is 2027.

The old lady knows about Sontarans.

Haha, there’s a Gorgon in this episode.1

The effect of the dad turning to stone is amazing.

Eye of the Gorgon part 2

It’s the eye of the Gorgon, it’s the thrill of the sight, rising up to the challenge of the stone stare.

I think with the dad stoned (tee hee) they’re going to be able to unstone him.

That hidden passageway reminds me so much of the 1960s batman series.

Aww, statue dad is crying.

Oh, they’re chanting “serve the Gorgon.”

So the talisman is what can return Pops to flesh, but she never says how.

So we know he was conscious during the stoning, so shouldn’t he be in excruciating pain? Also, they’re going to play it off that he’s dreamed it.

It’s a good thing Dad-Dad-Daddio doesn’t remember what happened, because as a parent, I would never let Sarah Jane Smith near my child. Unlike Rose Tyler who is an adult and can choose to go off on adventures, Maria is a child.

Are they going to cure Alzheimer’s? Oh good, they didn’t.

Warriors of Kudlak part 1

I need more children!!!!

Don’t spit on the street, asshole.

I wanna play laser tag.

Warriors of Kudlak part 2

Watch out for cricket man!

Where did Sarah get Mr Smith?

Their spaceship looks like a warehouse. Someone needs an interior decorator.

Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane? part 1

That’s obviously not the dad actor who is skateboarding.

For a kids’ show, this is pretty decent. I think I’d like this if I were 6 or 7.

Having a parent not believe you and having to lie that you remember Andrea.

Oh, that’s Jane Asher.

It’s a Graske!

Pop pop falling to aliens and alien tech is bad.

Wow, they could afford the Kinks.

Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane? part 2

I have a cat on my shoulder.

Andrea Yates is horrible.

Also child Sarah Jane looks nothing like Sarah Jane.

Sarah Jame Smith in Doctor Who

Andrea Yates is horrible.

The next episode looks sad.

The Lost Boy part 1

Last story of the season. We’re getting back to Torchwood, soon.

I’m interested in how this story of Maria’s dad knowing plays out. I did not expect to be this invested.

Oh shit, they’re evil!

Naughty naughty, teaching children how to skip class.

Oh god, the Slitheen again.

Oh shit, I didn’t see that twist.

The Lost Boy part 2

I just watched “Time Crash” and it was fun.

Mr Smith has a ray gun!

The Slitheen are the worst.

K-9!

Maria’s mum is now suddenly okay with Sarah Jane?

  1. I just typed Gordon. []

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 this episode and the next.

This is a children’s’ show, so I’m not going to say what that sonic lipstick looks like.

Aww, she misses the Doctor. I do, too. I’d rather watch him with Martha, and that’s the next episode.

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 feel it with him.

They need to hug. I want them to hug.

David Tennant is so good to show glee.

I agree with Sarah, the Doctor could have come back. Dropping her in Aberdeen was such an asshole thing to do.

Mickey, you’re not “the tin dog.” You’re nowhere near as awesome as K9.

Rose, the Doctor will leave you behind. He left behind his own granddaughter.

I think the companions could be a great group of friends. They all have lived through something so few have done.

K9 is so much better than Mickey.

Sarah is so great.

Apparently breaking a monitor breaks an entire network of devices.

While the Troughton is still my favourite Doctor, this might be the best Doctor Who to date. The story isn’t too sprawling. It’s fun and silly and enjoyable. Has lines like “forget the shooty dog thing.” It’s a great story. I know that there are better episodes coming up, particularly in the Matt Smith days, but bravo.

See, at least Mickey doesn’t just break a screen, he follows the wires. But why are there sparks when he unplugs everything. Also, why is everything plugged into one socket? That seems like a bad idea.

The “affirmative” when the Doctor tells K9 he’s a good boy is perfection.

Giles gnarles “You bad dog!” K9 replies “affirmative.”

Oh good, he’s hugging Sarah after the loss of K9.

I wish Sarah came with them. I’d rather have her than Rose.

“Some things are worth getting your heart broken for.” A great line.

I wish her spinoff was better, but the biggest problem is that it was meant for little kids.

Oh, next episode is even better than this one!

Confidential

The person on set doing K9’s voice is silly. John Leeson did his recording in studio.

Yes, they’re playing the opening credits to K9 and Company. K9!

Hell, if they gave us K9 instead of Mickey Smith, I would have been okay with that.

Susan’s farewell was just shown, and it’s so bad. He’s such an asshole.

Now they’re showing him saying goodbye to Jamie and Zoe. :`(

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 an appearance.

This makes me never want to watch Eastenders.

How does Ace look younger here than when she was on the show?

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 abduction scenes than Jon Pertwee.

And here’s Tom Baker’s archive footage. A shame he wouldn’t participate. I would have loved to see him with Patrick Troughton.

I don’t like this trend of Companions knowing how to use the TARDIS.

Yay! The Master! Time for some moustache twirling!

Hmm, this is the first appearance of the Dalek’s since Tom Baker left.

“Teeth and curls?” Classic!

Peter Davison making excuses to his previous self is great.

It’s nice that they have well maintained paved roads in the Death Zone.

The Commodore 64 graphics in the TARDIS are excellent.

“The scanner is keyed to my, to our, brainwave pattern. Well, well, well, so two of them made it. I wonder what happened to the other.” This is written in William Hartnell’s Doctor voice, and Hurndall fails to master it in any way.

Susan twisting her ankle is probably the best moment in this entire story.

God, I love Gallifreyan fashion.

Susan acts exactly like she did in the good ole’ days.

Cops are bastards on Earth and on Gallifrey.

Patrick Troughton’s cowardess is one of my favourite things of the second doctor era.

Yeah, make Sara Jane carry everything, Doctor.

I love Zoe and Jamie. I miss that trio.

“What happened to the little fellow?”

“I’ve reversed the polarity of the neutron flow.” Thank you Jon Pertwee!

What a romp!

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 don’t believe her, she gets home and nearly immediately that woman calls her up and tells her she can’t be alone and must come back. Why would Sarah Jane even consider that, you’re a rude bastard.

K9! do do honk honk!
