Hey, What's Time To A Time Lord, Anyway?

Because I just realized I forgot -- last week's temporary hiatus having apparently thrown me off -- here's your slightly belated regularly scheduled Doctor Who discussion post, for Friday's US-aired episode "The Poison Sky." As always, no spoilers for anything past this point, please!

  1. Good Martha, Bad Martha, Good Martha. Good 2 pt episode. Next week should be interesting. "Hello Dad!".

    Have you been watching Sarah Smith? If so, what do you think?

    Oh, by the way, only 10 shuttle missions left.

  2. Yeah, I thought the trailer for next week would provoke some interest. ;)

    I watched the Sarah Jane episodes when they aired in the UK, so I've seen them all, but I haven't been watching them on Sci-Fi, so I'm not sure what episode they're up to or anything. I was surprised by how much I liked the show. I wasn't expecting all that much from it, but it's really well written, in that way that kids' TV that also works for adults sometimes can be. It's got a lot of the sensibility of the old, classic Doctor Who series, a lot of the same feel. And I like that a lot. Plus, Elisabeth Sladen is marvelous.

  3. Can I mention again how much I really like Martha Jones?

  4. You can. I like her immensely, myself. Of course, I like Donna immensely, too. And I like the two of them together, well, immensely. :)

  5. I found it interesting that they said the Mr. Potato Head bad guys were cloned, but they looked different. I thought that clones were to be identical to the original, but when you consider my extensive research consists of merely the "Brinky" episode of Pinky & the Brain, I'm hardly an expert.

  6. No, you've got a good point. I think they're theoretically supposed to all look identical, but a) that's kind of boring on the screen, and b) they're played by non-identical human actors.

    Well, maybe they're cloned from slightly different stock, or have variations artificially induced, or something. :)
