The captain is complaining about evening to rescuing the Doctor and companions. Typical Chibnall, weak male characters. And the Doctor is not himself. Looking for The TARDIS. Messing ships up. BAD!

Tent Hologramme! Looks like everything is all over the place. No consistency. The Doctor is promising to keep everyone alive. TheTARDIS is on the planet but an a space-time anomoly is occurring.

The chase is on on a planet without logic? Wrecked ships. Cowardly Captain. Crazy Planet. Stepgranddad and stepgrandson not looking all the greatest.

The planet certain does not make sense Doctor. Set sail! Everyone is debating. Same old mistrust. Cigar smoking man! Move on Chibnall!

Building without people. Sun setting quickly and killer robots are coming out of nowhere. The whole planet is a target range. Nice one Chibnall!! Ryan goes gun crazy . Hide behind the pillars! Use an EMP!! Nice. NOT!!

Doctor thing scolds mr Captain and help Miss number 2. Right to the centre! Let’s climb down. Catastrophic event – should you stay around?

A planet for war development – really want to stay around? The captain is sacrificed. Tunnels are full of mad creatures!! And the planet in the night! Even the Doctor is not spared – why not the gender going wrong? Doctor and team kill creature.

The Doctor and team arrives at a null reward. The challenge is won? Fighting yet another ghost! Well the Doctor and 3 are around with the Doctor looks guilty as charged. Weak looking Doctor and the companions to comfort it.

Sonic the TARDIS and magic! In we go and into a repaired interior. Very liittle next time.

Poorly written and atrocious. 0.5/10

Poorly writen and atrocious. 0.5/10. I'm assuming you're talking about
what you like to think of as your "review" here.
First of all - keep to 80 fucking chars a line Yads - you know that.
No, he doesn't. Even if he did, he wouldn't listen. And even if he
listened, he wouldn't understand.
Second, your review, well plot recap it isn't a review really, is as
inarticulate and crap as usual. However I am sure we can get your score
down to 0 - you missed out the reference to Angstrom, the female race
pilot, having a wife.
I think he missed most of the dialogue. He was too busy trying to come
up with things to hate to actually listen to anything that was said.

Why does there need to be any sort of romance in two competing pilots?

I don't mind the episode having a pared-back plot. But then I'm the sort
of reader who prefers short stories to long novels anyway! (In fact I've
recently being revisiting some of my favourite MR James tales in the
run-up to Halloween, so I loved the idea of deadly sheets that come for
you even if you _don't_ whistle! But more of them later.)

And the opening of the episode does have a lot of plot going on. The
rescue at the beginning avoided the improbability of the ships just
happening to be in the right place at the right time, because they were
also after the TARDIS even if the pilots didn't know it yet! Then there
some nice character moments as everyone works out what happened. The
Doctor takes the chance to get hands-on again as she tries to fix the
spaceship. And I loved the effect when the cargo hold was jettisoned;
low-key nut nicely done, a bit like the episode as a whole!

The crash is less effective. Nobody thought to run sideways or
diagonally to get out from under the flight path of the advancing ship.
But that seems to be a standard TV convention, so I'll let it pass.

Unfortunately, that's followed pretty soon by the episode's next big
cliche. And no, I don't mean the revelation that the two spaceship
pilots are competing in a contest. As soon as Art Malik says that only
the winner will be allowed off the planet, you just _know_ the two
contestants are going to deliberately cross the finish line hand-in-hand
and tie for first place. There's a difference between simple
storytelling and simplistic storytelling, and this is one point where
they got it wrong.

It's the same when the male contestant tells everyone about his special
self-igniting cigar. Well, Chekov's obviously going to be using that as
a gun by the end of the episode!

But the writing's not all bad. There are some nice moments of dialogue
subverting all those trite, "I know you're always there for me and I
just want to be there for you," exchanges that you get in cheesy
American dramas. And I'm not bothered about the sniper robots' poor
marksmanship. They'd been abandoned in the desert for thousands of
years. Would they really be in perfect condition after all that time?

The worst thing about the scenes with the robots was Ryan's "Call Of
Duty" moment. The guy with dyspraxia is suddenly able to run and dodge
and shoot with perfect accuracy because he's played video games, despite
the fact operating a game controller uses different muscles with
different coordination! Worse, this scene doesn't even advance the plot
and is just there as padding!

But I still think the killer sheets are better monsters than the robots
anyway. How many kids were afraid to go to bed tonight in case the
bedding strangled them in their sleep? That's what DW should be all
about, and if some grumpy grown-ups think the monsters look silly,
that's because they aren't aimed at adults. We heave the the story arc
instead.

Yes, there's an arc. Chibnall could be be trying hard to make the Stenza
into this season's big bad. (Does this mean Tim Shaw is returning in the
finale?) And is this Timeless Child business hinting at a Cartmel-style
secret origin for the Doctor?

At least the episode's final cliche is justified in context. After the
quest is complete, it looks like the Doctor and companions are still
stranded on the planet anyway, but then the TARDIS turns up. Very
convenient coincidence, until you realise that the contest was timed to
end by it, and they had arrived early by taking the shortcut at night.
So, yeah, of course it would appear once everything was done!

I'm not keen on the new interior, but maybe it'll grow on me. Most of
the other visuals were adequate, even though everyone only cast one
shadow to the planet of three suns!

The actors of the two contestants were OK, but Art Malik was terribly
underused, only appearing in a couple of scenes. Could the BBC only
afford him for one day? And the Doctor and companions are developing nicely.

All in all, not a great episode, but more good than bad.

The improbability is that the ships were looking for the TARDIS in the
first place, and on top of that they just happened to be looking for
people to rescue. And how did they rescue them anyway? And why only 2 at
a time?

some nice character moments as everyone works out what happened. The
What character moments? There were not characters there except the one
played by Art Malik. Everything else was soap opera. They didn't even
characterize sports men, adventurers, or computer gamers, but just put a
pair of morons from a soap opera in control of two spaceships, with
nothing to suggest that they could even pilot them properly.

If this plot made any sense, they should have been put there for the

created by the imbecile scientists.

What did I tell you. The dyspraxia was inflicted on him to make him look
weak, and then when that suddenly vanished, they made him afraid of

Operation Rosa Parks. I assume that the Doctor et al must help her catch a bus. If they fail, Time Monkey Bats appear. This reminds me of Timeless.
No - the Confederate flags turn out to be the killer rags from episode 2,
and they attack Rosa Parks.

I don't mind the episode having a pared-back plot. But then I'm the sort
of reader who prefers short stories to long novels anyway! (In fact I've
recently being revisiting some of my favourite MR James tales in the
run-up to Halloween, so I loved the idea of deadly sheets that come for
you even if you _don't_ whistle! But more of them later.)
And the opening of the episode does have a lot of plot going on. The
rescue at the beginning avoided the improbability of the ships just
happening to be in the right place at the right time, because they were
also after the TARDIS even if the pilots didn't know it yet! Then there
The improbability is that the ships were looking for the TARDIS in the
first place, and on top of that they just happened to be looking for
people to rescue. And how did they rescue them anyway? And why only 2 at
a time?

some nice character moments as everyone works out what happened. The
What character moments? There were not characters there except the one
played by Art Malik. Everything else was soap opera. They didn't even
characterize sports men, adventurers, or computer gamers, but just put a
pair of morons from a soap opera in control of two spaceships, with
nothing to suggest that they could even pilot them properly.

Doctor takes the chance to get hands-on again as she tries to fix the
spaceship. And I loved the effect when the cargo hold was jettisoned;
You mean wave and gaze at her sonic dildo.
Bad enough!

low-key nut nicely done, a bit like the episode as a whole!
The crash is less effective. Nobody thought to run sideways or
diagonally to get out from under the flight path of the advancing ship.
No, or straight at it, as it was obvious that it was going to go past
them and was above them.
Post by solar penguin
But that seems to be a standard TV convention, so I'll let it pass.
Unfortunately, that's followed pretty soon by the episode's next big
cliche. And no, I don't mean the revelation that the two spaceship
pilots are competing in a contest. As soon as Art Malik says that only
the winner will be allowed off the planet, you just _know_ the two
contestants are going to deliberately cross the finish line hand-in-hand
and tie for first place. There's a difference between simple
storytelling and simplistic storytelling, and this is one point where
they got it wrong.
It's the same when the male contestant tells everyone about his special
self-igniting cigar. Well, Chekov's obviously going to be using that as
a gun by the end of the episode!
But the writing's not all bad. There are some nice moments of dialogue
subverting all those trite, "I know you're always there for me and I
just want to be there for you," exchanges that you get in cheesy
American dramas. And I'm not bothered about the sniper robots' poor
marksmanship. They'd been abandoned in the desert for thousands of
years. Would they really be in perfect condition after all that time?
If this plot made any sense, they should have been put there for the
game, but it doesn't, so they ended up being there as abandoned weapons
created by the imbecile scientists.
Post by solar penguin
The worst thing about the scenes with the robots was Ryan's "Call Of
Duty" moment. The guy with dyspraxia is suddenly able to run and dodge
and shoot with perfect accuracy because he's played video games, despite
the fact operating a game controller uses different muscles with
different coordination! Worse, this scene doesn't even advance the plot
and is just there as padding!
What did I tell you. The dyspraxia was inflicted on him to make him look
weak, and then when that suddenly vanished, they made him afraid of
ladders.
Post by solar penguin
But I still think the killer sheets are better monsters than the robots
anyway. How many kids were afraid to go to bed tonight in case the
bedding strangled them in their sleep? That's what DW should be all
about, and if some grumpy grown-ups think the monsters look silly,
No it shouldn't. It should have a meaningful plot, which this garbage
didn't.
Post by solar penguin
that's because they aren't aimed at adults. We heave the the story arc

Yes, there's an arc. Chibnall could be be trying hard to make the Stenza

So, yeah, of course it would appear once everything was done!
And what a coincidence that they weren't allowed the leave the planet,
just before that happened.

The actors of the two contestants were OK,
No they were not. They were rubbish. Just playing soap opera, with no
characterization whatsoever.

underused, only appearing in a couple of scenes. Could the BBC only
afford him for one day? And the Doctor and companions are developing nicely.
The f*k they are. A bunch of imbeciles the lot of them.

It was all bad, except for Malik.

That's why I asked about the order the episodes were written
and filmed. They might've been doing a Davison and filming
the first episode towards the end of the season to give the
cast a chance to settle into their roles. If so, this was
the earlier version of the characters, and Oct 7 the revised
one.

But I still think the killer sheets are better monsters than the robots
anyway. How many kids were afraid to go to bed tonight in case the
bedding strangled them in their sleep? That's what DW should be all
about,
Oh yes the killer sheets (really I imagine them to be the flayed

All in all, not a great episode, but more good than bad.
Yep I would agree with that.
I would like to see a bit more complexity to the stories, but in
a single chunk of 50 mins that can be hard to do successfully.
So you advocate longer stories, as per Classic Who?
Remove the soap opera, and actually tell as story with a plot.
Just like the good old days.
Exactly!
Chibnall is not our person.
Radical idea! Get a Chrsitan female showrunner!
They already had a Jewish female one from the start.

It's been done successfully in Star Trek, Superman, Smallville, Buffy,
Babylon 5, and most other American series, because they were not filled
with soap opera, and the stories actually had plots. Even the Sarah Jane
adventures did a better job, because it wasn't filled with soap opera,
and the stories had plots.

Smallville was nearly all soap opera to my mind. However all those
shows have something that DW doesn't. A more constant location (if you
define the Enterprise as the main location for Star Trek) and a more
constant cast. You don't have to write as much introductory material.

Nothing whatsoever that Chibnall has given us has told us anything about
the characters, except that they are total and utter clueless imbeciles.
All that he has engaged in is pointless soap opera. What tells you about
the characters is how they deal with problems and situations, and it is
clear that all of them are totally incompetent and interchangeable.

Star Trek has the Enterprise, but Doctor Who has the TARDIS, and a far
smaller crew. How come Star Trek can characterize Chekhov, Sulu, Uhura,
Scotty, McCoy, Kirk, and Spock, as well as the guest characters without
going into mind-numbing soap?

In comparison look at the two imbeciles racing the ships in this weeks
episode. Neither of them sounded like racing drives, such as Lewis
Hamilton or like pilots. They sounded like morons. Even Harrison Ford
talks like a pilot, and uses the correct jargon, when he's flying and in
communication with air-traffic control.

They were taking part in a game. Neither of them sounded like computer
gamers or athletes either, but behaved like a couple of drunks from the
pub arguing with each other. So another chance Chibnall had for
characterization completely gone.

Whittaker doesn't sound like a scientist or a doctor, but is acting like
an imbecilic hysterical housewife. So yet another chance for
characterization blown.

You've got Gill who's a police officer and apart from sorting out the
traffic dispute at the start of episode 1, she also is shown as being
totally incompetent in her job, not calling for backup, not talking
professionally to her superiors, leaving the scene of an accident while
on duty, not filing a report, and acting like an imbecile from
Coronation Street.

Then there's Ryan, who's only characterized by the fact that he can't
ride a bike, and finally Graham who's only characterized by the fact
that his in remission from cancer.

None of them have any actual character of their own, and none of them
can actually use anything they know to do anything, even Whittaker, who
just keeps looking at her dildo and pointing it like a magic wand.

But I still think the killer sheets are better monsters than the robots
anyway. How many kids were afraid to go to bed tonight in case the
bedding strangled them in their sleep? That's what DW should be all
about,
Oh yes the killer sheets (really I imagine them to be the flayed
skins of ancient people) were really effective.

All in all, not a great episode, but more good than bad.
Yep I would agree with that.
I would like to see a bit more complexity to the stories, but in
a single chunk of 50 mins that can be hard to do successfully.
It's been done successfully in Star Trek, Superman, Smallville, Buffy,
Babylon 5, and most other American series, because they were not filled
with soap opera, and the stories actually had plots.
You're kidding, right?

SMALLVILLE was nothing but soap opera hung on a superhero framework.

And BUFFY? No soap? What show were you watching?

Neither of them were soap. When the characters interacted it was always
about something to do with the plot. They didn't behave like people off
Coronation Street or EastEnders airing their dirty laundry in public.

So when Buffy talks to Giles, she doesn't go to him to talk about the
weather, or her parents, or who she's dating, unless the weather is
being manipulated by a daemon, or her mother has been possessed, or
she's dating a vampire. Giles' character is defined from the start as
the school librarian, and her watcher, and her character is defined from
the stat as a slayer. That's all that every discussion revolves around.

In Smallville, everything is based around Clark's special powers and the
villain of the week, and the focus remains squarely on that; so there's
plenty of time in a 45 minute episode to tell as story with a plot.

Characters are characterized by what they do and how they do it. Clark
has the powers, Chloe is the geek, Lex is the billionaire who's life was
save by Clark's, and who Clark wants to put on the straight and narrow,
Lana is the girl next door; and everything revolves around those
characters, with Clark trying to conceal his true identity from them
(until the eventually find out later on in the series). That's the brief
for every Smallville.

What does Doctor Who have, as written by Chibnall? Nothing but a bunch
of imbeciles as companions--I mean friends--who are all interchangeable
with each other, and an imbecile played by Whittaker who does nothing
but point her dildo at everything, which solves every problem for her by
magic, or she pulls stuff out of thin air as if by magic. At least in
Buffy, if she needed to know anything, she went to Giles, who looked in
a library book and gave it to Buffy, thus there was a natural
opportunity for characterization, not a forced one like that is in
Chibnall's and before that Moffat's last two series of fake Doctor Who.
If Clark wanted a problem solved or to ask a question he went to Chloe,
and they research it, and that added characterization, no gazing at
stupid dildos that did everything for you, and acting as if they were in
Coronation Street for the rest of the time.

Yep I would agree with that.
I would like to see a bit more complexity to the stories, but in
a single chunk of 50 mins that can be hard to do successfully.
It's been done successfully in Star Trek, Superman, Smallville, Buffy,
Babylon 5, and most other American series, because they were not filled
with soap opera, and the stories actually had plots.
You're kidding, right?
SMALLVILLE was nothing but soap opera hung on a superhero framework.
And BUFFY? No soap? What show were you watching?
Neither of them were soap. When the characters interacted it was always
about something to do with the plot. They didn't behave like people off
Coronation Street or EastEnders airing their dirty laundry in public.
So when Buffy talks to Giles, she doesn't go to him to talk about the
weather, or her parents, or who she's dating, unless the weather is
being manipulated by a daemon, or her mother has been possessed, or
she's dating a vampire. Giles' character is defined from the start as
the school librarian, and her watcher, and her character is defined from
the stat as a slayer. That's all that every discussion revolves around.

When has the science ever been good?
With Chibnall around?

But I still think the killer sheets are better monsters than the robots
anyway. How many kids were afraid to go to bed tonight in case the
bedding strangled them in their sleep? That's what DW should be all
about,
Oh yes the killer sheets (really I imagine them to be the flayed
skins of ancient people) were really effective.

All in all, not a great episode, but more good than bad.
Yep I would agree with that.
I would like to see a bit more complexity to the stories, but in
a single chunk of 50 mins that can be hard to do successfully.
It's been done successfully in Star Trek, Superman, Smallville, Buffy,
Babylon 5, and most other American series, because they were not filled
with soap opera, and the stories actually had plots.
You're kidding, right?
SMALLVILLE was nothing but soap opera hung on a superhero framework.
And BUFFY? No soap? What show were you watching?
Neither of them were soap. When the characters interacted it was always
about something to do with the plot. They didn't behave like people off
Coronation Street or EastEnders airing their dirty laundry in public.
So when Buffy talks to Giles, she doesn't go to him to talk about the
weather, or her parents, or who she's dating, unless the weather is
being manipulated by a daemon, or her mother has been possessed, or
she's dating a vampire. Giles' character is defined from the start as
the school librarian, and her watcher, and her character is defined from
the stat as a slayer. That's all that every discussion revolves around.
In Smallville, everything is based around Clark's special powers and the
villain of the week, and the focus remains squarely on that; so there's
plenty of time in a 45 minute episode to tell as story with a plot.
Characters are characterized by what they do and how they do it. Clark
has the powers, Chloe is the geek, Lex is the billionaire who's life was
save by Clark's, and who Clark wants to put on the straight and narrow,
Lana is the girl next door; and everything revolves around those
characters, with Clark trying to conceal his true identity from them
(until the eventually find out later on in the series). That's the brief
for every Smallville.
What does Doctor Who have, as written by Chibnall? Nothing but a bunch
of imbeciles as companions--I mean friends--who are all interchangeable
with each other, and an imbecile played by Whittaker who does nothing
but point her dildo at everything, which solves every problem for her by
magic, or she pulls stuff out of thin air as if by magic. At least in
Buffy, if she needed to know anything, she went to Giles, who looked in
a library book and gave it to Buffy, thus there was a natural
opportunity for characterization, not a forced one like that is in
Chibnall's and before that Moffat's last two series of fake Doctor Who.
If Clark wanted a problem solved or to ask a question he went to Chloe,
and they research it, and that added characterization, no gazing at
stupid dildos that did everything for you, and acting as if they were in
Coronation Street for the rest of the time.
WEll screen writing quality has gone down.

The crash is less effective. Nobody thought to run sideways or

But that seems to be a standard TV convention, so I'll let it pass.

Coal gas in no way smells like acetylene.

TBH an analysis would have been more sonic screwdriver waving about.
A proper scientific analysis would require proper equipment and time.
Neither type of analysis was really needed. The place was called
acetylene fields on the map, the garlicky smell just confirmed that
the acetylene was present.

It is common for industrial gases to add "odorants" so the users would

The pure gas has no odour. However it is often prepared from calcium carbide which leaves traces of phosphine. That's what smells like garlic.

Why not run *toward* it so that it passes overhead and crashes beyond

And what are the odds that a crashing ship that has a whole planet to

It's the same bizarre defiance of the odds of probability that has
asteroids always coming down on New York City in every single Hollywood

A planet for war development – really want to stay around? The

gender going wrong? Doctor and team kill creature.

Tent Hologramme! Looks like everything is all over the place. No consistency. The Doctor is promising to keep everyone alive. TheTARDIS is on the planet but an a space-time anomoly is occurring.
Did the TARDIS make the planet move?
