Doctor Who and the Nightmarish First Date

New Doctor Who costumeAfter a very busy week it was time to settle down with the fever dream that is Doctor Who once more and record my reactions.  If you’ve missed out on the journey so far catch up with…

Let’s see what the Doctor has in store for us this week…

  • Me? Oh nothing. Just a little T.A.R.D.I.S. meditation. Breathe in outer space? Yes of course I can.
  • “Why do we talk out loud when we know we’re alone?” … uh… we don’t. That’s maybe something to bring up in your next therapy session, Doc. I assume you’re in therapy.
  • “Because we know we’re not.”… I’m not expert but isn’t that called dissociative identity disorder? Speaking of which I just finished watching the Fifth Estate, Peter Capaldi was great as always.
  • For such a high tech space box using chalk seems a bit lo-fi. Are there no white boards in space?
  • Ooh! Great boots. Very cool, Doc.
  • Fun Fact: I always have to remind myself that Stephen Moffat and Stephen Merchant are different people. 
  • Great job on the eyeliner, Clara.
  • Hey! It’s Mr. Pink! In case you forgot he’s wearing a pink shirt to remind you.
  • And that ladies and gents is what we call a bad first date. Shame, they have good chemistry.
  • Oh Peter, he’s even charming when he’s insulting. Maybe especially when he’s insulting.
  • Whoa, don’t let him stick your hands in glowing goop. That’s Doctor Handling 101!
  • Come to your childhood… this won’t scar you AT ALL.
  • And to think people get judgemental about having sex on the first date.
  • “The human race, you’re never happy are you?”
  • Hold up, the Doctor can just put people to sleep at will? Between his magic laser pen and his own magic powers how on Earth does he get into so much trouble?
  • Note to self: bring T.A.R.D.I.S. on all date.
  • Or maybe not.
  • “This is the silence at the end of time.” Seriously though, watching this on drugs must be amazing.
  • Is Mr. Pink going to be the new Clara when Clara stops being the helper?
  • Oh yeah, mild Scottish burn. Blink and you missed it. I don’t want to say constantly being the butt of jokes is why Scottish wants Independence but it can’t possibly be helping.
  • So if the T.A.R.D.I.S. is a time spaceship and it lands inside another time spaceship that’s pretty much the turducken of time travel, yeah?
  • Definitely go in the hayloft. Nothing bad ever happens when a character in impractical shoes climbs into a dark hayloft.
  • TIME LORD ACADEMY? Ooooh… so what do we think, is it better or worse than Hogwarts?
  • Well this is some Primer-level mind fuckery.
  • And scene. Stay tuned next week for… bank robbing?
