Doctor Who Serial 151 – The Greatest Show in the Galaxy

Part One

Nice whip. Oh god, terrible 1980s rapping.

Aww, she’s got Tom Baker’s scarf.

That is the raddest tricycle I’ve ever seen.

So a robot materializes in the TARDIS and runs an advertisement. Somehow I think that’s the most realistic thing I’ve ever seen in Doctor Who. Oh and it’s individualized advertisements. I assume that robot is what Facebook eventually becomes.

The guy on the trike has the best hat ever! Those bat wings are great. Also, is that Rob Brydon?

Both the driver and our heroes had 10 minutes to see one another, there’s no reason they should have come so close.

Wow, two BIPOC in this episode. That’s a surprise.

Part Two

Doctor, your friend seems very uncomfortable. Maybe listen to her?

The Doctor is an idiot.

More of this terrible rapping.

The rapper really likes his whip… but damn, he’s rapping again.

Part Three

Did he just say “Hello deadbeat.” Yeah, yeah he did.

Ow, your teeth, don’t bite into ice cream like that.

God this episode is terrible.

A werewolf? Really? Well, this is Doctor Who, they’ve done worse stuff.

Part Four

The thumbnail in Plex for this episode:

Reminds me of “the Vampires of Venice.”

Did the head of a Lego man just poke out?

Wow, LegoHead blowed up and Ace is so happy. She loves a good explosion.

The gods of Ragnarok?

Okay, I didn’t know Ragnarok was not just a Thor movie.

Was this whole story put together to get Sylvester McCoy to do his magic?

Doctor Who Serial 150 – Silver Nemesis

Holy crap! 150 serials in! This is incredible. I’m on my seventh Doctor. 25th season. 150th serial.

“The serial marks the final appearance of the Cybermen in the original run.” DELETE!

Part One

Fucking hell. I have to deal with Nazis in real life, and now on Doctor Who, too?

Ace and the Doctor are enjoying some smooth jazz in a garden.

Ace, I also hope your tape is alright.

It’s 1988, the Doctor makes Ace a boombox and he doesn’t include a CD player? While he was at it, he should’ve put in an MP3 player.

Time travelling wizards?

“We won’t harm you,” says the Doctor to some Nazis… he should.

Part Two

I’ll cheer for the Cybermen over the Nazis. 1) they’re not racist, they want to hill all humans. 2) they’re fictional.

“A hit! A very palpable hit!” YES!

Dammit, Cybermen! You have terrible aim. Kill the Nazis!

Cybermen and Daleks make way too many alliances and they always pay for them.

Part Three

That’s the most exaggerated thumb movement of a hitchhiker, ever.

Why is there an American in a limo heading to Windsor castle?

Why did she just run into the shuttle?

Oh god, a musical interlude.

“Professor? Doctor? Who are you?” I think the audience has a pretty good idea who the Doctor is at this point.

Doctor Who Serial 149 – The Happiness Patrol

Part One

HAHAHAHA! There’s a literal happiness patrol.

The streets of this city looks a lot like a soundstage floor.

I think that’s the first use of Theta Sigma.

So if you’re unhappy you get killed by blood and viscera?

The angry robot wife is really weird.

Wow, that Go Kart needs a tune up.

Well, it broke down, that’s not surprising.

Part Two

I love the robot’s spinning eyes.

I love that the unhappy people are the “killjoys.”

Part Three

Happiness Patrol Got Talent.

That puppet is terrible.

The Doctor and harmonica man are gonna jam.

So the robot is called the “Candy Man?”

The Doctor is so indignant.

Doctor Who Serial 148 – Remembrance of the Daleks

Part One

Oh yeah! Ace has a boombox! A boombox in the 1960s.

Uh oh! That kid knows who the Doctor is!

That is indeed Susan’s old school, and they’re going into Foreman’s junkyard.

Oh my, those are Daleks!

I love Doctor Who‘s means of continuity by pretending that Humans just ignore major events in our history and pretend they didn’t happen.

Part Two

The Dalek just said “WE! MUST! REPAIR! THE! TRANSMAT!” All I can think is Alex Horne saying “We?” to Katheryn Parkinson.

I couldn’t find that gif, but here’s another one.

I enjoy McCoy’s R rolls.

Is that Geoffrey from Fresh Prince? Oh my god! It totally is.

Hahaha! Ace beating up a Dalek with a baseball bat is amazing.

Part Three

If those Daleks were half-way good at their jobs, they’d have killed Ace a long time before the Doctor et al arrived.

Ace seems like she’d like to join the military.

I forgot how ridiculous the Dalek Emperor looks.

Little Girl Dalek!!!

Part Four

That landing shuttle was actually not terrible graphics. Not great, but better than one would expect.

When anyone says “Ace,” I just think of her saying “ACE!”

Wow, these Daleks have shitty aim. They keep hitting the same spot on the wall, but not the giant Daleks that should be easy to hit. They’re not moving.

I think that’s part of a streetcar track in the ground at Foreman’s yard.

That girl Dalek has got a lot of attitude.

Good to know that fibre optics are used in Daleks.

Why is the “Beware of dog” sign on the inside of the door?

HAHA! The Emperor is Davros.

He vaporized Skaro. I can see what the war is gonna happen.

Well, that kid is gonna be screwed up the rest of her life.

Doctor Who Serial 147 – Dragonfire

I assume this episode is named after the ride at Canada’s Wonderland.

Part One

Great hat.

Oh, the lady gets a lovely hat, too.

Hopalong Glitz is here!

Oh, that’s Ace.

Ace is a rebel.

She shouts out her own name with she accomplishes things? “Ace!”

Why did the Doctor climb over the railing? His face implies that things are not going to plan, but what is his plan?

Part Two

That statue is wearing the greatest outfit.

You know someone isn’t your real parent because they made a bad choice in your name? Apparently Ace is Dorothy.

He’s a friendly bipedal dragon.

Part Three

3000 years? You needed the Doctor to do what that you couldn’t do for 3000 years? Walk into the lair?

That crystal looks like a cock and balls.

That was a very bad and very gross special effect.

Bye Mel! Hello Ace… or as Ace would say, “ACE!”

Doctor Who Serial 146 – Delta and the Bannermen

It’s 2021, and I’m still doing this stupid thing… but let’s GOOOOO! DELTA! AND! THE BANNERMEN!

Part One

Why is Mel excited by heading to the 1950s Disney? They have a time machine.

They look like giant poop emojis.

Was that Jimmy Carr?

This holiday camp must be what The Who were singing about in Tommy. “Got a feeling ’21 is gonna be a good year.”

That Welsh accent is making me think of Torchwood. Doesn’t hurt that last night I watched the New Year special with Jack in it.

I don’t think Doctor Who knows what rock and roll is.

Sara Griffiths, who plays Ray, does an absolutely terrible Welsh accent.

Part Two

It’s a baby!

The Benny Hill music is not making me endear this episode. However when they played the music from the The Surprising Adventures of Sir Digby Chicken Caesar.

This guy isn’t phased by anything. Green baby? No reaction. Someone asking to leave his friends with you for a few hours? No problem. Can I borrow a broomstick and pillow case? Of course.

Part Three

Haha, this really sounds like The Surprising Adventures of Sir Digby Chicken Caesar.

Maybe the prisoners wouldn’t have escaped if you didn’t tie them up with something that requires an allen key to get out.

Wow, Sylvester McCoy does not know how to drive a motorcycle.

That onesie bunches unfortunately.

The main bad guy sounds like Harvey Fierstein.

That poor bee farmer’s house.

His honey!!!

Doctor Who Serial 145 – Paradise Towers

Part One

Wow, the late ’80s vibes are strong with this one.

So Mel wants a swimming pool, is that why the Doctor would eventually put one in the library?

Oh, there was a swimming pool that the Doctor jettisoned. So he “builds” a new one.

Mel’s outfit is great. She really needs to do something about her eye makeup though. It looks like she has no eyes, just two holes of blackness.

Also, in regards to the Kangs, I personally voted for Kodos.

Part Two

Who’s the Great Architect? Is it Sarah Lynn?

I feel like I’m in the final stretch now that I’m on season 24 and Sylvester McCoy. But also, I have three seasons to get through.

Also, those guards are idiots.

Who puts a circular saw on a moving robot? That’s a bad idea!

Why does one of the old biddies have a trident?

Part Three

Okay the old ladies are incredible.

The Nazi attire is getting tired.

Part Four

Good thing the Doctor was attacked by the robot with the drill and not the one with the circular saw.

I’m trying to figure out if that’s meant to be an aquatic beast or an aquatic robot.

Definitely robot.

Well, he is a cowardly cutlet.

Thank god there are only two robots. It’s really easy to overthrow.

Doctor Who Serial 144 – Time and the Rani

Part One

Oh my god! I thought the effects on Doctor Who were bad in the past! It’s so much worse now!

With the exception of Sylvester McCoy’s face over the opening credits (they really need to stop doing that, but they will in three seasons), and except for the horrible, horrible, horrible graphics, this could be the best opening credits for Doctor Who. Part four is going to air the same day as “Encounter at Farpoint,” the pilot to Star Trek: The Next Generation. One still looks amazing today, the other looks like a 12 year old made the credits.

There’s a chicken lady.

Part Two

The Rani has a very flat bottom.

Oh my! That bad guy looks like he’s from Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers.

“I know about regenerations, of course,” why is that of course?

Part Three

“You have another rrrrrole to play.” That was an excellent R roll, Rrrrrrani.

Everything about this episode reminds me of Power Rangers.

Part Four

Based on this story, I’m going to say, I hate Mel, I hate the Rani, and I’m pretty sure I hate the 7th Doctor.

The Rani runs like she has to poo.

“Remove the bangles”

Every choice made for this story was the wrong choice.
