Doctor Who: The Intergalactic Job

Posted by Katherine on September 22, 2014

New Doctor Who costumeFull disclosure… I was beyond tired when I started watching this week’s Who.  In fact so much so that I had to pause and go back to it the next day.  But I trucked through this week’s episode of madness and eventually got to the other side.  Or back around to the start.  I’m not great with time travel metaphors.  Here’s how it went…

  • Nice suit, Clara! Très chic.
  • The T.A.R.D.I.S. is ringing! The T.A.R.D.I.S. is ringing!
  • Time for an intergalactic conference call… with slugs!
  • Ooh, a monogrammed K. I’m quite the sucker for seeing my initial all fancy. In fact the background of my twitter page is something quite similar. Could do without the gold though. hate gold.
  • “Intruders will be incinerated” … imagine if that alarm goes off by accident? Yikes.
  • Dude has a USB port in his head. Is that what we’ll all be like? “Hey did you get the Apple iBrain yet?” “No, I still have three months on my Microsoft THINK! contract.”
  • I know that Mutant from somewhere, I just don’t know where. (Pippa Bennett-Warner… apparently she was on Inspector Lewis & Vera recently)
  • You lost the T.A.R.D.I.S.? How exactly does one lose a T.A.R.D.I.S.? Don’t you have a fob for your spaceship. Doesn’t the space toothbrush have a button that will make the T.A.R.D.I.S. flash it’s lights or make a beep? Seems like a design flaw.
  • I am way too tired for this much slo-mo.
  • Look! It’s the telepathic ovary monster!
  • Well that’s a sexy librarian with great hair. (Keeley Hawes… see her on Upstairs Downstairs)
  • Oh good thing they just happened to have a hacker and a shape shifter show up this week.
  • Is the buttoned up shirt with no tie making a comeback? Has GQ been alerted?
  • Dimension shift bomb? Seriously, do the writers just sit around coming up with ways to get the Doctor in and out of boxes?
  • Ugh. Eternal Sunshine Boy will have to wait. Time for bed.
  • Alright… I’m back and there’s an hour to kickoff, let’s rob this space bank Doc.
  • Once again Clara has outdone herself with the eye makeup.
  • So the space toothbrush also kills people? Great.
  • No one looks very good under green lights, do they.
  • I predict the brain uterus monster will turn on the sexy librarian.
  • “How can we make this one tunnel look like a labyrinth?” “What if we change the light colours?” “Brilliant!”
  • Why can’t they just use the toothbrush to get in the vault? The logic of this show is all over the place.
  • Don’t worry, we’ll just use some sort of time travel explanation to get us out of this one.
  • We seem to have painted ourselves into a corner. No worries, let’s just make those characters we just killed off with lots of tense emotion come back to life.
  • Oh good. Clones. Of course there would be clones.
  • 10 minutes to go and still no Scottish joke. It’s almost as if they don’t want Scotland to vote YES.
  • Yet another “you did this to yourself” episode.
  • Join us next time for a really strange love triangle!
