"I was really impressed! They have quite an extensive collection from the entire run of the series and it is very well displayed. The shop had some great stuff (Jelly Babies!) and the owners were super nice."
It's not just the Idiot's Lantern rerun, either. The stuff that's different we've also seen before, far too many times. Yes, Matthew Graham's done Life On Mars. But he also churned out the spectacularly tedious and unoriginal The Last Train. (Main character's name: Harriet Jones. Oh, yes, we're just exploding with fun trivia.) And alas, it's The Last Train that Fear Her more closely resembles. That was a Threads/Survivors clone; here, he rips off the many SF shows who've done someone stealing people by drawing them, then throws in a few more as a bonus. Sapphire And Steel, Paperhouse, The X-Files, Star Trek... is there any SF he didn't loot?
Since they can't afford the fun stuff, what we get instead is people explaining things to us. Chloe's mum about their family history, the Isolus about itself, the Doctor and Rose about all of it: blah blah blah, yap yap yap, on and on. We don't think we've ever seen a talkier episode. And so much of it takes place in Chloe's bedroom we were starting to get claustrophobia. About the most they can work up in the way of excitement is Chloe talking in a scratchy voice and a red light with a bit of growling. Not exactly riveting, is it? It's a show with half (the action half, the interesting half) of it missing. Normally we like the talky stuff a lot better than the monster-stabbing, so for us to moan about the gabbing quotient shows just how off-track this episode is.
And there's some good character stuff in here for both the Doctor and Rose. From Rose's enchanting "not gonna open it, not gonna open it..." moment to her chance to do the sleuthing while the Doctor's offstage, it's actually a very nice episode for her. Her Morse and Lewis scenes with the Doctor are also fun, if a little too pop-cultury (again). The Doctor's more of a mixed bag: we hate the silly "Fingers on lips!" scene, which rings about as true as a four-pound note, and the appearance yet again of the psychic paper (remember when the Doctor used to be able to convince people to do things through sheer force of personality?). And urgh, the mind-meldy thing. But we do love the moment in the kitchen when he's about to stick his fingers in the jar and Rose has to shake her head. And the way he says "I'm being facetious... there's no call for it". Abisola Agbaje and Nina Sosanya are perfectly fine as Chloe and her mum: it's not the actors' fault that the characters are so bland it's hard to work up any enthusiasm for them.
Mike is introduced to the Doctor's dog, Captain, and some stuffed animals. He is then taken to a guest room. Inside his room, Mike is watched by a stuffed owl. He sits at dinner with the Doctor, talking about old times. Suddenly, a weasel pounces onto the Doctor ferociously. After shooting the creature, Mike is blamed for saving the Doctor's life.
During the night, Mike can hear strange sounds around the house. He wakes up in the middle of the night and finds that the owl is alive and starts to attack him. The Doctor controls it. The Doctor explains that he needs to use his brain to keep the stuffed creatures calm. In the morning, the Doctor outlines the explanation in a simple fashion. Mike listens intently.
The Doctor tells about stuffed creatures coming alive at night. The Doctor tells Mike about odd deaths. They were all incidents caused by soulless animals. Investigating further, the Doctor found a company who had bought stuffed animals from a museum. The Director was Percy Noggins, whom the Doctor watched as he ordered and catalogued stuffed animals being loaded onto a truck, which was about to be taken away. Stowing himself away on the truck, the Doctor and the hollow animals were taken to a factory.
The Director wanted to know why the Doctor was snooping around, to which the Time Lord retorted with a sharp remark. The Doctor began to ask him questions, about the work that they were doing in the factory and about stuffed animals coming alive suddenly. The Director was reluctant to answer and let the Doctor go on a simple warning.
Becoming interested in the stuffed animals, the Doctor began to collect them, to try to control them, using his mind. Percy Noggins noticed the Doctor's actions and met him, just for a meeting. The Director was acting strangely as if he was being possessed by some unknown being.
Returning to the compound and Percy's office, they both started talking, Percy becoming nervous by the second as if he was worried of being overheard. Realising what was going on, the Doctor addressed the hornets inside Percy's head. Just like the stuffed animals, he was a host. The hive found the Doctor tempting and used their telepathy to try and reach into his mind, to control it. Instead, the Doctor offered for them to come to Nest cottage. And so they were placed inside stuffed animals, which came alive.
Responding to a rather quirky advertisement, Capt. Mike Yates inexplicably finds himself in the service of his old partner and friend, Dr. Who, who's naturally on another crazy adventure. An alien race of hornets are possessing stuffed and mounted animals and lashing out against society; Dr. Who needs Yates to help him catch and destroy them. In typical BBC radio style, this dramatization proves enjoyable and listeners will have no trouble becoming absorbed in the adventure. Baker's gruff but amiable projection tempered with a crisp English accent makes him a pleasure to listen to as the Doctor, and Franklin works a good deal of admiration and awe into his performance as Yates. The sound effects are not over the top, and the sound overall is balanced well, so listeners do not have to keep adjusting their volume depending on the . (Feb.)
"Like an electric toothbrush or some little something that you can only get in the States," says Rhatigan. "He would take that stuff just as seriously as he would take writing a letter to a head of state."
Doctor Who is like a great big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff. It's been running for so long that tons of myths, misconceptions, and urban legends have sprung up around it, like a massive game of "he said, she said" that has been running for almost 60 years at this point.
The Source's green-tinted energy is the same stuff that emits from Jenny's mouth, and considering that it has the power to rejuvenate an entire planet's ecosystem, bringing someone back from the dead would be child's play for it. 041b061a72
