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.

Doctor Who Serial 139 – The Mark of The Rani

Part One

Okay, this is just turning into a fashion blog. Maybe I’ll start writing about the Great British Sewing Bee (just finished season 5). What the hell is Peri wearing? That white skirt is a really bad idea. And those shoulder? Yuck!

At least Doctor Who is talking about environmental protections, but 40 years later, and we did nothing.

Don’t you hate when your horse-drawn wagon gets carjacked?

*gasp* It’s the Master.

HAHA! I love when Time Lords/Ladies peel off a face. The Master totes has a boner for the Rani.

Oh, Master, yes, “claptrap” is a great use of language, I approve.

Is this the end for our Doctor? Is the Doctor rolling to an early grave? Find out next week. Same Bat-Time. Same Bat-Channel.

Part Two

George Stephenson is apparently the inventor of the steam locomotive. You learn new things by watching Doctor Who.

Oh god, the Master and his hypnosis.

“You’ll make an awful mess of that pretty dress.” No, Doctor! That’s not a pretty dress.

Doctor on a stick.

The Rani turning people into trees is amazing.

Peri, is that really how you think Americans say “later?”

Oh god! The T-Rex is the worst thing Doctor Who has done… since this dress Peri is wearing.

“I always said he was a strange fella,” says the man who just met him.
