It was 1963. Doctor Who needed a 2 episode story to round out the 13 episode season. But the budget was such that they couple only use their current sets and the main actors.

…The Edge of Destruction is what they came up with.

And we have opinions about it.

The Pocket Project: Rose

Posted by: Whochick

The Pocket Project

In the Classic series of Doctor Who the Doctor was constantly being told to empty out his pockets. This was especially common in the Fourth Doctor era. When the Doctor would reluctantly comply with the order, the watcher would find any number of strange things that had been lurking in his pockets. If you have been watching the new series, you have undoubtedly noticed that the Doctor still pulls all sorts of things out of his seemingly bottomless pockets. It’s good to know that some things never change. The Doctor likes to be prepared, it would seem, no matter the face that he is wearing at the time.

And this brings me to The Pocket Project. One of the things that I will be doing during our Doctor Who drought is going back through the new series episodes and keeping track of the items our Doctor produces from the depths of his pockets. (Yes, I like making lists. How could you tell?) Along the way, I will also be keeping track of what the Sonic Screwdriver is used for. I shall begin with series one, episode one – Rose.

The Pocket Project: Rose – 1.1

1. The Sonic Screwdriver – used to stop the lift so that the Autons couldn’t follow them, to follow the signal from the plastic arm, to cut off the signal animating the plastic arm, and to lock the back door of the restaurant containing the rampaging Plastic Mickey Body.

2. A Ruddy Great Bomb – used to blow up the relay device on the roof of Rose’s shop.

3. TARDIS Key – Now looking like a normal Yale key.

4. Anti-Plastic – How else are you going to stop a plastic menace?

Total Items: 4

And that’s the end of the season until the Christmas Special. (At which point we are hoping a couple of things will get fixed.) What did you think of Death in Heaven?

Oh! And FYI, our other podcast Doctor Geek’s Laboratory has a soundtrack now. Soundtracks are cool.

Well, we finally learned a few things in Dark Water. I’m looking forward to Missy cosplay at Gallifrey One this year already. Anyway, there’s a bunch to talk (and worry, in the case of that last bit) about, so let’s get to it, eh?

No two ways about it, this episode was full of dimensions. Seriously though, what did y’all think of Flatline? Spoiler alert: we liked it. So, get comfortable and join us for a discussion with far less ranting than happened a couple of episodes back.

This week we watched Kill the Moon…in which there was some dubious science. And then we ranted about it in podcast form. And that was about it for this article. So, make of that what you will.

This week, Scott and I were both in the same room when we watched The Caretaker. We were sitting comfortably and everything! Thus, we were also sitting next to each other to record this episode…in Florida. What did you think of the episode? To see what we thought, just click on the podcast.
