1)Now, those are shoulder pads!
2)Why are they all wearing curtains around their waists?
3)The Island of Death! Great name for a vacation spot! Still,. I visited Death Valley, once.
4)Wow, the TARDIS prop is really beat up.
5)"There's nothing unpleasant on Dulkis." Maybe they should've gone to Excitinkis, instead.
6)Cliffhanger #1: "Shall we destroy?"
7)I always thought the Quarks were goofy-looking. Apparently, there were hopes that they would replace the Daleks when Terry Nation took his ball and went home. Uh, no.
8)"Signs of recent rapid learning"
9)I see - Cully is the Norrin Radd of Dulkis.
10)"Do you enjoy being treated like a clown?"
11)"Just act stupid. Do you think you can manage that?"
12)Cliffhanger #2: Zoe and Cully are trapped!
13)Ah, Zoe...smart, fiesty and cute!
14)"Oh, dear, you've got me there."
15)"Better do nothing than do the wrong thing."
16)Troughton and Hines were a great comedy team.
17)Cliffhanger #3: Jamie and Cully are trapped!
18)Wow, the Dominators are bitchy.
19)Jamie's clever enough when he's planning a fight.
20)"Take this, you wee tin kettle!"
21)Maybe they could just let the Dominators conquere these people.
22)Cliffhanger #4: "Answer or you will die!"
23)"It's important to keep the enemy guessing."
24)These Quarks have lousy batteries, they run out of energy so quickly.
25)"It's so simple, only you could've thought of it."
26)Ah, an early appearance of the sonic screwdriver!
27)I suppose that female Dominators are Dominatrixes?
28)He's worried about a volcano? This must've been before the TARDIS was indestructible.
This was an OK story, largely saved by the interplay between the TARDIS crew, particularly the Doctor and Jamie.
According to the extras, this was something of a trouble-plagued story, with disputes between the writers and the producers, and tension between the actors - especially Wendy Padbury - and director Morris Barry. The problem with the writers is apparently why this was a rare five-part story.
BB: 11)"Just act stupid. Do you think you can manage that?"
Great line, that one.
BB: 16)Troughton and Hines were a great comedy team.
JOEJ: Scarlett O’Hara did a much better job of making clothing out of drapery.
For that matter, so did Carol Burnett.
Thanks for reminding me this one's out now!
