Days left till the 50th: 3 (nearly there!)
Episodes watched: 100
Today’s Episode: Crimson Horror
Writer: Mark Gatiss
This is the ONLY Gatiss episode I like. I first saw this down at my local pub, the 42 Lounge, and while watching it, I was drinking a sonic screwdriver and laughing my butt off at all the jokes. This really was a fun romp, as it is not a story to be taken seriously like Vincent and the Doctor or Blink. It really shows off a great silly side to the Doctor. As one person put it, this is pretty much a summanation of Doctor Who..
Strax: And how will [Jenny] locate the Doctor?
Madame Vastra: To find him, she needs only ignore all “keep out” signs, go through every locked door, and run toward any form of danger that presents itself.
Strax: Business as usual, then?
Madame Vastra: Business as usual.
I loved how they introduce Mr. Thursday, and his fainting at everything…
Also how he did give them this photo.. I was laughing so hard at it!
After she saves him.. All he can do is this..
So, what does Jenny do? Totally and rightfully do.. Gives him a good SLAP! That was a good one!
Then the Doctor explains how they arrived…
How they met Mrs. Gillyflower, whom is played by the amazing Dame Diana Rigg. She had so much fun with the role! She’s well known for her work on the Avengers (The TV show not the films!) and most recently in Game of Thrones. Seems like they have been kind to spare their actors recently for Doctor Who, eh?
So they go off and find and save Clara, Strax has problems trying to find Sweetville.
Get it? The GPS Tom Tom?!!! I was laughing so hard at this awesome joke.
While Clara is getting back to normal, the Doctor and Jenny get attacked by the Gillyflower Goones. So Jenny strips down into warrior gear under her dress, making the Doctor do this with his sonic..
Then Strax and Madame join them, and Strax is a wee bit.. well..
So Jenny and Madame meet Clara.. well this Clara..
Together, Madame and the Doctor discuss the posion, and Clara helps them realize, that there is a chimney with no smoke, which means there must be a rocket or something.
Doctor and Clara then goes to confront Mrs. Gillyflower, and she reveals who Mr. Sweet is!
What is that??? Oh that creature that Madame mentioned that exisited 25 million years ago??!! WHAT?? Well here is Gatiss acting like Mr. Sweet to get an idea of why it lived for so long..
So the Doctor tries to convince her not to use the poison. We get a small cameo from Charlie the Badger!! SEE???
It didn’t go to well… the convincing part.
I think it was due to Charlie. He must have convinced her.
So off the rocket goes! No poison on board since the Gang intercepted it! Then Mrs. Gillyflower shoots at the gang once she realizes what has happened, and sadly misses after Strax shoots back at her… and falls to her death. So Mr. Sweet then crawls away, but Ada kills it, as she’s really upset that her mom blinded her and died.
So Away the Doctor and Clara goes, without giving the Gang any explanation about who Clara is, as he has no idea himself now, since he knows that she doesn’t know about the different version of herself.
Clara goes home, and it turns out the kids she’s taken care of have been doing a little digging…. Found pictures of her from Cold War and Hide. Also Snowmen, but she knows that she was in Yorkshire not London like the other Clara.
They then blackmail her for an adventure that will take place tomorrow!
Oh I found this really funny video.. an alternative ending to Doomsday. Watch it and laugh! Yes, Its captioned if you need that kinda thing..
Till Tomorrow, were we see Gaiman’s Cybermen! 100 episodes done, 2 to go!!!
