Liveblog! Well, liveblog part 2, and a summary of thoughts on part 1





Why does everyone think this is the worst Who story ever? So far it's a bit campy but also lolarious in parts and sinister and the actors are clearly having a fantastic time hamming it up.

I love the shots of the Borad; they are almost Davros-like in their circumspection aren't they? Dude is evil and sentences people to death by Time Corridor. But lets them provide exposition before they die first. aw.

Peri and Six! Now with belts!

"How's that line doing?" "It's breaking up!" "Tell me immediately if any part of it goes off the screen!" See, this is how helping the Doctor really would be. Reminds me of the zig-zag plotter. "Take two steps to your right, and pull it again!" Bwa ha ha ha!

Poor Vina. Though she has the right idea, steal the amulet and throw it in the time corridor. I love how she just kind of wafted through the TARDIS and then got thrown off course to 1885.

Peri has a very good point. Why display plants that attack you with acid? Still, very Chekov for her to use them to get away from the guard. And then she escapes onto the set of "The Wiz".

Herbert. Mother-you-know-what those were "Morlocks" in the future society weren't they? Which makes Herbert H.G. Welles, doesn't it? OMFG THAT IS AWESOME. I love how he thinks Vina's a spirit and I love Six's reaction. "You'll have to excorcise me another day." Also good on you, Vina, for speaking out against the Doctor leaving you behind in what is obviously much more your fight than his.

H.G. Welles is in the TARDIS. "Do you know it's bigger on the inside?" BWA!

In the meantime, the new puppet leader starts a war with... um, puppets (very sad-looking snakey puppets, actually they are kind of cool), Peri is menaced by a nasty brachiousaurus, an android spontaneously appears and then spontaneously combusts, and Peri is caught by rebels. Who are then caught right back by the bee-keeper guards.

Doctor, you appear to have not thought this through very well though. At least you know, leave the amulet locked away in the TARDIS. You've got nothing to bargain with!

Oh six! "Microcephalic Apostate!" What happens if they throw him into the time corridor? How is he gonna get out of this? Good thing this episode is 26 years old and I can just start part 2!

Part 2!

Those smurf androids are freaky in the way that only eighties aliens can be freaky.

LOL MIRROR DANCE!!!!

And of course the Doctor will enter the Time lash!

And Peri is collared. Literally.

Why do all the baddies want Peri alive.

Vina: is it safe? Um, one guess. NO!

Now he's in a giant crystal cave. Holy heck they must've blown their whole considerable budget on foam crystals and tinsel. And that monster from before.

Wait what is he doing again? Something with crystals. "Gotcha!" Ha, Eleven, don't you have any new material?

Now Peri is in jail.

LOL LOL THEY ARE STRADDLING CRYSTALS!!!! LOL. You know this story would actually make a really good audio.

I recognize that guy who plays Borat. his voice, maybe? Who is that?

Cybermonk! He's not the Borad! He's just a convenient face.

Poor Peri, still sitting in jail. What's on her chest? She totally gets the short end of the stick in these episodes.

Don't kill Stephen Moffat! No!

I love this meilin tekka guy, he is positively slimy and evil.

The androids look like they are almost wearing Five's fancy dress costume from the Black Orchid, if it got sent through the wash and then used as paint coveralls.

Ah ha ha ha the Doctor can make himself invisible!!! Well, delayed anyway. Six, you are so clever :D

Science. Fiction. That dude is SO H.G. Welles.

And the snake people are attacking!

OHO That's where the android came from! Timey-wimey! That is awesome.

Man, Peri always gets the worst from these adventures! Lizard food? Boo!

LOL Jon Pertwee! They have a picture of Jon Pertwee! This is crack but it is awesome crack! So here's a question then, is there really a previous adventure on this planet? Or did they just write a backstory to go with the... frontstory?

Herbert listens just as well as any companion, I see.

LOL I love Six. "Don't worry about me, Doctor." "I'm not!"

Showdown! Doctor vs. Borad! Who wins? Borad is an evil scientist mutated from a failed experiment. He has intellect now "but hardly the looks to match," hahaha Six.

Dude is FREAKY LOOKING! Like half horse, half lizard, with a bit of mime thrown in. Actually that is a really good makeup job.

"Do shut up and go away!" Ha.

OMG tekka you are an idiot. Borad agrees with me.

Oh fuck. NOW we know why he wants Peri. And what that thing is on her chest. EVERY FREAKING TIME!!! *sighs* Poor Peri. If I was her I'd totally want to go home after creepifying stalkery mutant-who-wants-to-bed-me the first.

OH, now he's pissing Six off.

"Oh very scientific! I mean, you have a really controlled experiment there!" WHY DO PEOPLE HATE THIS EPISODE? IT IS AWESOME!

Dude totally deserved that. He brought it on himself.

Um, that spaceship. Yeah.

Wait, Peri wasn't even tied up? wth Peri?

Suppositories! In! Space!

And the Doctor's gonna go try and stop the missile from hitting the planet, and he doesn't want Peri there and we know he's blustering and citing dictionary definitions but oh my it looks really like he cares about her doesn't it?

Also I really like Peri's jacket. I could totes do a Peri outfit from this episode.

Herbert! Hahahahahaha! "To be perfectly frank, Herbert, when I go, thoughts of you will be very low on my list of regrets." LOL. I bet he wouldn't think that if he knew we'd be losing out on that book, and the crappy movie with Jeremy Irons....

Holy shit the borad's still alive1!!! What happened? How did he survive? Shit, he was cloned! clever clogs, hah.

"Don't I have a say in this?" Poor Peri. Very phantom of the opera. And, okay, a bit cringeworthy there, but nowhere near as corny as "let's diffuse the android bomb with love."

LOL he's the loch ness monster isn't he??? Hahahahaha! The Loch Ness Monster's name is Borad. Of course it is.

And yes, Herbert is H.G. Wells (I've been spelling it wrong). And of course the TARDIS survives. She's indestructible!

In short, um, okay, I may be rather easy to please or something, but I loved that episode. If that's the worst Who has to offer, well, I'd say it's in pretty good shape.
