When I was a little girl, I had a leaf. It was the most important leaf in all the universe. It came from somewhere else. The leaf is bigger on the inside, and can travel anywhere in time and space. I ran away with that leaf, and some crazy old stalker called "The Doctor", and we've been running ever since.

I picked up a British mini-series from the mid-90s last week, starring Christopher Eccleston and Daniel Craig... "Our Friends In The North". Apparently, it's one of those critically acclaimed BBC2 series that got great ratings and everyone loved it.

Anyway, this mini-series was originally pitched to the BBC in the mid-80s, picked up by the BBC, and then canceled when Michael Grade took over.

Michael Grade really was an idiot, wasn't he?

As a fan I found this a bit of a Meh episode, like last weeks. And too many "because the plot needed it" things, like the Captain refusing to let the Doctor talk to the Warrior but happily allowing him to talk via Clara? What was the point of that? Other than "the script needed it"?  Same with the Tardis de materialising. It's always been indestructible with even the Daleks unable to get inside it so why would it need to run away if under attack?  Oh right, because the plot needed it....

It may be (nearly) indestructible, but it also still might flood if opened underwater, making it silly to hang out there?

Just how much room does the TARDIS have?

Granted, the TARDIS would flood, but could the TARDIS take the contents of the ocean and still have room left for the wardrobe to remain dry?

Hurm.... Assuming it's a full-fledged four-dimensional object, technically yes (assuming it doesn't have some other odd limitations). Just in the same way you can fit an infinite number of 2d objects in a 3d space, you should be able to put as much 3d into 4d as you can ... so long as you can fit the 3d o's through the aperture.

Theoretically, you could fit every (3d) elephant on Earth into a 4d cube the size of a computer mouse. Only caveat is that the elephants would have to be ground into a paste so or otherwise cut into tiny pieces so they'd fit into the space, but you could fit as many pieces as you wish.

We don't know how big the Tardis swimming pool is. It might already be the size of the Mediterranean. Just think of the problems that would cause!

Well, he did say it's an old feature that he just turned back on.... Remember, this is the guy who still hasn't fixed that broken chameleon circuit after 50 years. And Doctor-Donna knew it could be done easily..

Any way, that was an interesting episode that kinda went nowhere, at least not obviously.
 
2013-04-13 07:37:49 PM
I dunno, I liked it better than last week's. Maybe it was because I just got finished watching Pertwee's run and was excited about Ice Warriors, or maybe it's because I enjoy Gatiss' writing.

Either way, they certainly nailed the claustrophobic feeling. I also appreciated the Duran Duran bits.

That was one thing that kinda bugged me about last week's episode: didn't Clara and the Doctor destroy the thing that provided heat, light and a gravitational anchor to all those races around it? I mean, even if it wasn't a sun wouldn't all those planets orbiting it just go flying off into space?

Also still want to know what happened to Amy's parents...

Well, it imploded, meaning the mass is all still there, so the gravity would be as well.

Won't speak to the light/heat.

Actually, there is a precedent for the TARDIS dematerializing under attack.

Was just watching The Krotons on DVD. The Doctor mention The HADS... Hostile Attack Dematerialization Sensor. If he remembers to activate it, the TARDIS dematerializes when attacked. So, yeah, it is an old feature that he remembered to turn on for a change.

Damn.  I had no idea she was that hot.

She was on Chris Hardwick's Nerdist podcast a few weeks ago.  Not knowing anything of her, it was all new to me, you may enjoy it.


I tried to get into the new Dr. Who years ago but it just wasn't working for me.  But anyways, if you dig her, check the podcast for a cool listen.

Just some quick notes:
- Davos nailed his role. While I don't want the guy to get typecast, I will easily tune in to any show/movie where he plays a grizzled but honorable ship captain.
- Is there anything David Warner hasn't been in at this point?
-  What's up with the shorter runtime this week?  It was only 40 minutes total.

I thought it was a decent episode. The Alien-like atmosphere was well done. I thought it was a step up from last week's episode.

Nope. It was ice Warriors. The story where they were going to use the Earth's climate-control Ionizers as a weapon.
