Radio Free Skaro #87 – Midnight Express

For once, the Three Who Rule were in total agreement that “Midnight,” the psychological thriller/Donna-lite episode of this season’s Doctor Who, was a fine bit of viewing. That left us with little else to do besides mock Who overseer Phil Collinson and engage in many a ridiculous digression, as per usual. Next week, Rose, dead Doctors, and atomic weaponry. Allons-y!

    How does forcing David Tennant to look lonely every few weeks qualify Doctor Who as the same kind of programme? When Star Trek: The Next Generation first brought this self-indulgent mixture of SF imagery and over-the-top “emoting” to the BBC in the 1990s, everybody hated it, especially after Channel 4 started showing Babylon 5 in the same kind of time-slot. (This week on Babylon 5: a half-glimpsed horror from the dawn of creation reaches across the galaxy and tricks the whole of human civilisation into becoming cannon-fodder in its ultimate War of Armageddon. This week on Star Trek: Counsellor Troi remembers how distressing it was when her periods started. Go on, guess which one we preferred.)

    Nice one Larry!
