With all the best intentions (and the glowing skull of Eustace) we set out to fully enjoy this horror story from Series 15…but there are a few bumps along the way. Performances are enjoyable from both Baker and Jameson, and the supporting cast does a great job of punching up their roles to suit the story’s brooding horror. The script from Chris Boucher gives us a buffet-table of entertainment options to pick at. But is the meal satisfying once the dishes are cleared?


Just Put a TARDIS On It

On a quiet Whovian news week, we test our memory of dialogue, trying to remember which character uttered a particular statement from the modern episodes. From phrases that could easily be a number of Doctor’s regenerations, to companions that seem to make very similar observations, Keir puts on his ill-fitting gamekeeper’s hat, and puts Jay and Haley to the test.

We didn’t have particular concerns about jumbo shrimp until this Season 15 story came around. Now we feel a bit ‘nerve-ous’ around them. (Get it? Brain? Nerve? *sigh*)

Jeremy Radick joins us again a the top of Season 15 for a nice, leisurely tour of a lighthouse on a perfectly serene evening. Everything is just fine. Nothing unusual or alarming.


They Deserve More Time

We task ourselves this week with identifying just a few of the briefly-met characters who we wish had another opportunity, large or small, to return to the program. It could be a passing cameo, a where-are-they-now glimpse into their lives after having met and interacted with the Doctor, or even a full episode adventure with them past, present, or future.

With an attempt to acknowledge the quality of the storyline while remaining keenly aware of the careless, and inarguably racist execution, we delve into the six-part conclusion to Season 14 and all the issues it brings to light.

If broadcasts of Earth films ever get picked up by Sontaran fleets, this may be their reviews of what we consider “classics”. We really don’t expect them to be appreciated. We do, however, have a pretty entertaining time trying to figure out exactly what movie our noble knobby-headed warrior is ranting about.

With a fistful of sticky bike reflectors, we head into the Fourth Doctor and Leela’s second adventure, an Agatha Christie-meets-Isaac Asimov murder mystery with Leninist overtones. (Oh, and sand!).
