Is Doctor Who slowly turning into Captain Scarlet though ? We,ve got a man who indestructible and now we have something that's the spit of Cloud Base !!

See when I saw it I thought someone had nabbed Nick Fury's Helicarrier.

Then there's "Sky Captain and the world of Tomorrow" with it's giant British Helicarrier. It's all very "pimp my ride".

Great episode. Great Master. I've enjoyed this third season the most out of all three seasons. I like Martha because the show isn't about her, it's about the Doctor.

I do hope Jack takes some of his vim back to Torchwood season 2.

Wonderful to see Gallifrey again.

The episode was great, and yea, seeing Gallifrey was a nice touch.

I reckon the Toclafane are bigger on the inside.

I. N. J. Culbard said...

Just occurred to me.

"Last of the Timelords" because the whole season you've had it being built up to "You are not alone" and the whole "Lonely God" thing, you're kind of thinking "Last of the Timelords" means there can only be one. but in actual fact the Toclafane ARE "The Last of the Timelords"? Not 1, many.

Yeah, it's still on my mind since Saturday night.

Hi Emma, thanks for visiting, love your germs!
Hmmm, interesting INJ, whatever the Toclafane are, they're Galifreyian (?), maybe some enemy of them, which is why the Master named them after the local boogyman. Fraid my DW knowledge is bit limited though, so I can't guess what that would be.

Jelly baby?

All good stuff, bar Martha "I must mention my unrequited love at least once in every episode" Jones (TM)

paulhd said...

From the looks of that ep, the Master and his companion don't seem to mind getting it on! Martha hooked up woth the wrong time lord. Actually I'm just as fed up with the whole, 'Oh Rose' thing. Yawn!

the Gelf were the last lot to come through the rift, their bodies destroyed in the Timewar. And these cheeky little Terrahawks rejects sound a lot like the Gelf.

That and genetic splicing of two species, sort of half Dalek, half Timelord. Scary stuff.

Still thinking about it.

This is where I out myself as a total philistine by admitting I haven't seen any of the new Dr Who. I am sort of getting the feeling I may be missing out on something...x

I think we've got a clever/complicated time travel twist coming up. Saxon sets up the Utopia Project, which survives into the far future where Yana, completely unconscious to what it's really about, sends the last of the human race to Utopia, which is actually some kind of place/machine that turns people into killer Terrahawks balls. Saxon, back in the present, uses the Paradox Engine to open a rift in time, to bring the Toclafane back to eliminate their ancient forefathers.

Or they're the ghosts of the dead Timelords trapped in machine form.

I'm just really intrigued by Saxon's comment about the true identity of the Toclafane breaking the Doctor's hearts, as well as the Master's snort of derision when he picked up the Utopia disk.

Can't wait to find out tonight!

Yeah, best series yet. The only duff ones were the Event Horizon ripoff and the second Dalek episode; everything else is gold.

kelvingreen said...

Wasn't far off. :)

paulhd said...

Didn't predict that it'd be a bit lame though didya:)

kelvingreen said...

That's because it was a televisual triumph, you silly man! :P

paulhd said...

Who knew? :)

I. N. J. Culbard said...

Ah, the power of prayer!

Disappointed with the finale.

'Voyage of the Damned' better not be 'Leviathan'. And I sincerely hope there's not a robot Santa in sight.
