The Pocket Project

This week on The Pocket Project we are looking at episode five of Doctor Who series one – Boom Town. What will The Doctor produce from his seemingly endless pockets this time? What will he use the Sonic Screwdriver for? Let’s find out.

The Pocket Project: Boom Town – 1.11

1. Cell Phone – You have to wonder where he got it. He certainly never pulls it out of his pocket again.

2. Sonic Screwdriver – Used to reverse a teleport.

3. Breath Spray? – Something that looks like breath spray that is used to neutralize Blon’s poisoned breath.

Total Items: 3

Hey, now Jack is pulling things out of thin air, too! Do we even want to know where those handcuff bracelet things were hiding? For all that this is not my favorite of episodes, it does have some interesting moments. “Only a killer would know that” for example. The Doctor first recognizes the constant reappearance of “Bad Wolf.” And, of course, the thing that we don’t find out for a couple of years: This adventure is directly responsible for Torchwood’s invisible lift.
