and I have been watching old school Dr Who episodes, the best being the Tom Baker and his Giant Scarf adventures. Especially the ones with boob-killing mummies. Anyway, I downloaded a "reconstructed" episode, which means they somehow lost the episode (I don't know how they managed this. Did someone leave it in their other pants?) so they patched an episode together from a bunch of other episodes. This one's called THE TENTH PLANET. It takes place in 1986 (THE FUTURE!!) and centres around a NASA bunker in the south pole that's communicating with two astronauts in a rocket that are orbiting Mars. But instead of Mars, they find another planet! Between Mars and Venus! That looks exactly like Earth! IT IS THE HOME OF THE CYBERMEN!
God, I love the cybermen. Okay so, the TARDIS drops in on the south pole, and the military guys bring them down into the bunker, because when a mysterious alien police box lands in the middle of nowhere in a blizzard, the first thing you do is bring the hot girl on it down into your bunker. Also, they spend the first 5 minutes of the episode expositioning that 1) IT'S REALLY WINDY and 2) THERE ARE SOME DUDES IN A ROCKET. The commander dude of the bunker is suspicious of the doctor, and sends some guys to go break into the TARDIS. I HAVE CAPS AND COMMENTARY UNDER THE CUT. ( Collapse )
I LOVE THIS SHOW.
