WCET 48 Cincinnati, OH
Sat 11:30PM EDT Pyramids of Mars ep 4 of 4
Ooh, big explosion, of a pyramid, well that's the pyramids part of the title sorted, what about the Mars? Oh, big evil bloke in mask, in a dark room, probably on Mars. Glowing green eyes, glowing green Tom, in pain. Bloke in mask has one of those really sinister voices, he also has very hi-tech L.E.D.s imbedded in the wall. Bloke wants to use the TARDIS, get's the key, oops, isomorphic controls, has to possess the Doctor then, travel through tunnel-thingy, travel in TARDIS, to Mars! Nice to see a Doctor who doesn't gurn when being throttled. traps, puzzles, extendable stick, tiles, explosive floor, something about a crystal, automatic lock-in? The old hoary (or is it hairy) chestnut of the two guards, one is lying puzzle, been there, done that. Crystal destroyed, re-animated dead fella has a heart attack or something, Sutekh is loose. Eh? EH? A bit of traditional corridor running, back to Earth, Sutekh coming down the tunnel, but ah! There's a delay between Mars and Earth! Doctor twiddles knob, stops evil Osiran bloke, saves world, but sets fire to the house. No-one alive in house so it doesn't matter, world saved, hooray! - Gordon Dempster
Sat 11:55PM EDT The Android Invasion ep 1 of 4
The Doctor and Sarah stop off in Devesham for a quick pint (of ginger beer, naturally!); but the locals aren't what you might call 'talkative'.... - Alryssa Kelly
