Watched The Space Museum
A story that might have worked betterer if certain elements were more to the fore imho. Otherwise, apart from terrible gas and Boba's eyebrow malfunction, it's a keeper

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
Earthshock – Part 1
Scott: Take cover! Take cover! Behind the rocks!
(The two sides exchange fire.)
Kyle: Who are they?
The Doctor: Androids. That's why they didn't register on your scanners.
Scott: Androids. Are they yours?
The Doctor: No. If you want proof, you'll find they'll kill me as willingly as they'll kill you. (one of the androids fires at them and they duck behind the rock. Seconds later, the Doctor looks over the top of the rock again) See what I mean?
Kyle: That's them. I recognise that sound.
Scott: Those are the things that attacked you?
Kyle: Yes.
The Doctor: Do you know why?
Kyle: No, there isn't a reason.
The Doctor: Whoever's controlling the android thinks there is.
Earthshock – Part 2
(A drawing of the Tardis comes up on the holo-imager.)
Cyberman: What is it?
Leader: A Tardis.
Cyberman: A Time Lord. But they're forbidden to interfere.
Leader: This one calls himself the Doctor, and does nothing else but interfere.
The Doctor 1 [on holoimager]: Emotions. Love, pride, hate, fear. Have you no emotions then?
Leader: It was in this regenerated form that he confined the Cybermen to their ice tomb on Telos.
The Doctor 2 [on holoimager]: I imagine you have orders to destroy me.
Leader: And as this, he defeated us in our attempt to destroy Voga, the planet of gold.
The Doctor 4 [on holoimager]: You've no home planet, no influence, nothing. You're just a pathetic bunch of tin soldiers skulking about the galaxy in an ancient spaceship.
Cyberman: I did not see any of these men in the cave.
Leader: It appears he has regenerated again, but whatever his form, he must be found and destroyed
Earthshock – Part 3
Tegan: Doctor! Adric!
The Doctor: Where did you come from?
Tegan: That thing caught me.
Adric: Where's Nyssa?
Tegan: She's safe. She's in the Tardis.
Leader: Who is this woman?
The Doctor: An Earthling. No one of consequence.
Tegan: Thanks a lot.
The Doctor: Be quiet.
Leader: She's one of your crew.
The Doctor: In a manner of speaking.
Leader: I see that Time Lords have emotional feelings.
The Doctor: Of sorts.
Leader: Surely a great weakness in one so powerful?
The Doctor: Emotions have their uses.
Leader: They restrict and curtail the intellect and logic of the mind.
The Doctor: They also enhance life! When did you last have the pleasure of smelling a flower, watching a sunset, eating a well-prepared meal?
Leader: These things are irrelevant.
The Doctor: For some people, small, beautiful events is what life is all about!
Earthshock – Part 4
Nyssa: Look out!
The Doctor: I must save Adric!
(Nyssa grabs the Cyberleader's weapon and shoots the Cyberman.)
Tegan: Look!
Nyssa: Adric!
(The freighter plummets through the Earth's atmosphere, and goes KaBOOM! The Doctor turns the scanner off.)
Tegan: Adric? Doctor! Oh, no.
(Nyssa and Tegan cry on each other's shoulders. The closing titles roll silently over a picture of Adric's broken gold star.)

Even geniuses make mistakes!

Pointless: Richard Osman blasted by BBC viewers for huge Doctor Who blunder | Daily Express

"Contestants Kay and Joy found themselves in the final and had 60 seconds to name three of the following: Companions of the Doctor, cast of The Day of the Doctor, or writers of any episode since 2005.

They went for writers, which seemed to be the obvious choice and named Russell T Davies, David Tennant and Mark Gatiss as their options.

Sadly, the two correct answers scored too high and didn’t win the pair the jackpot.

However, as Richard Osman went through some answers they could have used to get the Pointless jackpot, it seemed they made a slight blunder.

He went through some of the categories, and said: “Lets start with some of the companions of the Doctor.

“Ian Chesterton, who was one of William Hartnell’s companions, was a Pointless answer.

“Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy both had Mel Bush as a companion.

“Rory Williams, who was with Matt Smith, Turlough with Tom Baker…

“Lots of other answers that you wouldn’t think of as an official companion,” Richard continued to discuss some of the lesser-known companions who starred in Doctor Who..."


As the Telegraph points out: "...eagle-eyed viewers correctly spotted Richard had made a blunder while referring to Turlough, who was played by Matt Strickson.

Turlough wasn’t with Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor, rather he was a trusted friend of Peter Davison’s Fifth Doctor."


The irony doesn't escape me!

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
Time-Flight – Part 1
The Doctor: Crew of the freighter safely returned to their own time.
Nyssa: Cyber fleet dispersed.
Tegan: Oh, great. You make it sound like a shopping list, ticking off things as you go. Aren't you forgetting something rather important? Adric is dead.
Nyssa: Tegan, please.
The Doctor: We feel his loss as well.
Tegan: Well, you could do more than grieve. You could go back.
Nyssa: Could you?
The Doctor: No.
Nyssa: But surely the Tardis is quite capable of
Tegan: We can change what happened if we materialise before Adric was killed.
The Doctor: And change your own history?
Tegan: Look, the freighter could still crash into Earth. That doesn't have to be changed. Only Adric doesn't have to be on board.
The Doctor: Now listen to me, both of you. There are some rules that cannot be broken even with the Tardis. Don't ever ask me to do anything like that again. You must accept that Adric is dead. His life wasn't wasted. He died trying to save others, just like his brother, Varsh. You know, Adric had a choice. This is the way he wanted it.
Tegan: We used to fight a lot. I'll miss him.
Nyssa: So will I.
The Doctor: And me. But he wouldn't want us to mourn unnecessarily.
Time-Flight – Part 2
The Doctor: So you're the conjurer.
Kalid: I am Kalid.
The Doctor: You say that as if you expect a round of applause.
Kalid: Have a care, Doctor. You were not summoned to my domain to play the clown.
The Doctor: Your domain?
Kalid: Here, Kalid rules.
The Doctor: Well, I apologise for my levity, not to mention my curiosity.
Kalid: What troubles your mind, Doctor?
The Doctor: What you're doing in this time zone, for a start.
Kalid: Shall Kalid not travel where the spirit leads him?
The Doctor: Would the spirit have anything to do with the ruins of that spaceship out there?
Kalid: Spaceship?
The Doctor: Yes.
Kalid: Space is within us, Doctor.
The Doctor: Ah. Then exactly how do you travel?
Kalid: By the power of the Great One. In the deserts of Arabia I learnt all the magic arts.
The Doctor: Magic? Arabia? Oh, come on, you can do better than that.
Kalid: You mock me, Doctor, but do not doubt that I can summon furies and cacodaemons, a company of cherubim or Lucifer himself.
The Doctor: Oh yes, yes, you're surrounded by a lot of powerful bioenergetics, Kalid, but I can't help feeling there's something a great deal more mechanistic about all this.
Kalid: Mechanistic?
The Doctor: What are you doing, sitting at the end of a time contour like a spider in a web? And what do you want with my Tardis?
Kalid: My familiar spirits have told me of your miraculous cabinet. The spirits have told me you would come.
The Doctor: Your spirits are very well-informed.
Time-Flight – Part 3
The Doctor: So you escaped from Castrovalva. I should have guessed.
The Master: As gullible as ever, my dear Doctor.
Hayter: Magic, as in lantern. A son et lumiere performance. Sophisticated and terrifying, I do not dispute.
(The Master has removed all his disguise and is holding his deadly tissue compressor.)
The Master: How you love the company of fools.
Scobie: Hold on a moment. This crystal, there's no connection, no radio link.
The Doctor: The crystal is simply a point of focus. The communication is purely telepathic.
Hayter: And what's all this equipment for?
The Doctor: What indeed. (The Doctor takes a look.) These components are from your Tardis. You're stranded here! The time contour you generated was a desperate lifeline to the future. It accidentally converged with Concorde.
The Master: You are right, Doctor. I need your Tardis to penetrate the sanctum.
Time-Flight – Part 4
The Doctor: Ah, well, really, Officer, we're, we're just in transit, as it were. (Sheard, Stapley, Bilton and Scobie come out of the building.) Er, just a, just a. Captain Stapley, I trust you had a good flight?
Stapley: You're amazing, Doctor.
The Doctor: (to policeman) Er, you know my friend the Airport Controller. I'm sure he can give you a full explanation.
Sheard: I think I'm entitled to a few explanations.
The Doctor: Er, well, I'll just make a quick phone call, which should clear the whole thing up.
(The Doctor backs into the Tardis.)
Sheard: I thought the Doctor was on Concorde with you?
Stapley: Absolutely, but you see, that police box is really a spaceship in disguise.
Bilton: And it's called the Tardis.
Sheard: Tardis? Tardis?
Scobie: And it travels in time as well.
Sheard: Gentlemen, if you persist with this flippancy, it will be time to talk about (The Tardis dematerialises.) Disciplinary action.
Stapley: Happy landings, Doctor.
(Tegan comes running up.)
Tegan: Happy landings, Doctor.
Stapley: Hello. I thought you were going with the Doctor.
Tegan: So did I.

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
Arc Of Infinity – Part 1
Nyssa: I don't understand, Doctor.
The Doctor: Not now, Nyssa.
Nyssa: Why are we locked in? Surely the Time Lords have brought you back to help find the creature and prevent its bonding with you.
The Doctor: I wish I could believe that.
Nyssa: What other reason would there be?
The Doctor: It won't be that easy to track this creature down. The universe is rather a big place. And there is an easier alternative.
Nyssa: To kill you? Is that why they've brought you back?
The Doctor: Possibly.
(In the records room, Damon watches and hears all the conversation. He presses a button and the compound doors swing open.)
Nyssa: You did it!
The Doctor: I doubt it. Not with this kind of lock. And certainly not as quickly.
Arc Of Infinity – Part 2
Zorac: Each and every time the Doctor returns to Gallifrey there's violence.
Hedin: Perhaps it is we who should modify our approach.
Zorac: He resisted the guard!
Hedin: We send armed guards when a friendly face and a welcoming hand would have sufficed. Are you surprised that he resisted?
Arc Of Infinity – Part 3
Omega: Doctor? I have good news for you, Doctor. Since I wish no enmity between us, I intend to release you.
The Doctor: That's very generous of you. May I ask what I've done to deserve it?
Omega: You will be freed if you give me your word not to interfere.
The Doctor: I will do everything I can to stop you.
Omega: Then I am forced to persuade you.
(Tegan appears.)
The Doctor: Tegan!
Omega: A friend of yours, Doctor. Please, your word not to interfere or she must suffer.
The Doctor: No, it's a trick. It's not Tegan.
Omega: Tell him, girl.
Tegan: Please, Doctor, help me.
The Doctor: It can't be. Tegan's on Earth. I know she is.
Omega: Very well. If she is an illusion, then you will not be upset to see her destroyed.
Tegan: Doctor, please!
Arc Of Infinity – Part 4
Nyssa: Is Omega dead?
The Doctor: Well, he seemed to die before, yet he returned to confound us all.
Tegan: Well, you'll be pleased to hear Colin will be out of hospital in a couple of days and on his way home to Brisbane.
The Doctor: Excellent.
Nyssa: And what about you?
Tegan: Oh, indestructible. I'm fine.
The Doctor: It's been marvellous to see you again.
Nyssa: Indeed. I've missed you. I wish you didn't have to go back to your job.
Tegan: What job? Didn't I tell you? I got the sack. So you're stuck with me, aren't you.
The Doctor: So it seems

Watching Planet Of The Spiders

One last hurrah then. Earthbound for half, and the galactic Eastbourne that is Metebelus 3
Featuring Gareth Hunt, who is auditioning for Game Of Thrones a bit early, rather apt for a programme centred around time travel cough. Yes, I cannot watch parts, but it's DW so I perseveres . Surely that's not a regulation haircut Alistair??

"Here we go again ..."
