1)Watched this one again - the commentary track on this one is one of the good ones: Moffatt, Davison, Sutton, Fielding, and Waterhouse brutally but amiably saving their own and each other's performances. Fielding is particularly obsessed with her hair - I can't blame her, it looks almost like PHB hair. The commentary is often more entertaining than the story itself, it's like listening to them MST their own show.
2)And we get the lastest in a long line of goofy-looking Doctor Who androids.
3)I like how Tegan, Nyssa and Adric do a perfect Three Stooges knockdown on a peasant. Hmm...Tegan as Moe, Nyssa a Larry and Adric as Curly?
4)Michael Robbins give us some nice Renaissance overacting as Richard Mace.
5)I'm not particularly overwhelmed by the Terileptils - although the lead Terileptil does get a pretty gruesome death at the end.
6)I was amused by the bit where Adric thumps the console.
7)I sure hope they went back and disposed of all the technology in the manor house (and the plague rats!) and the escape pod.
8)I don't know who's dumber: Team TARDIS, for falling for the "hiding behind the door" gag, or Team Terileptil, for successfully pulling the "hiding behind the door" gag, but still getitng the crap beat out of them.
9)Some fun quotes:
This one's OK, apart from the excess mopy companions. Saward's actually not a bad writer, he just never should've been allowed anywhere near the overall direction of the series.
