The Steel Sky

1)The Monoids are sufficiently goofy-looking. I can't think why our Steven hasn't brought them back.

 

2)"Have you been frootling about in my wardrobe?"

 

"If you go trying any frootling about in there, I'll blow your head off."

 

3)"The Monoids acquaint us of intruders."

 

4)"No, me nose is running."  Ah, back at the start of Jackie Lane's run, when she was still occasionally trying to sound "Cockney".

 

5)"Nero, the Trojan Wars, the Daleks - but all that happened in the first segment of time."

 

6)Cliffhanger #1: Everyone may die of the cold!

 

The Plague

7)This is interesting - the show has never really addressed much the idea that they might be spreading germs all around space and time. The Doctor pretty much just doesn't want to think about it.

 

8)"You still fear the unknown, like everyone else before you."

 

9)Good grief, what kind of plague was Dodo carrying?

 

10)"Now, once this crisis is over, I am going to teach you to speak English."

 

11)"Yes, I know I'm a bit of a quack..."

 

12)"The last moment has come."  It looked better in "The End of the World".

 

13)Cliffhanger #2: The statue is a Monoid!

 

The Return

14)"It appears the Monoids have become overlords."

 

15)I wonder if the Refusians are related to the Spiridons?

 

16)That Monoid had a nice trip in the doorway.

 

17)Cliffhanger #3: The Doctor and Dodo are stranded on Refusis II.

 

The Bomb

18)"What about the bomb?"  Good question.

 

19)OK, there were clearly some strings involved with those launchers.

 

20)Humans and Monoids having to learn to get along - it's like a precursor to the humans and Hath.

 

21)Cliffhanger #4: The Doctor sneezed so had he turned invisible!

 

Another fairly good story, where they tried something new. I think the First Doctor, Steven and Dodo are a pretty good team!

Re-watched parts 1-2 on Monday and 3-4 yesterday.

In that way, this makes a nice little two-parter!

I haven't looked at this one in ages. At least they tried something different!
