Episode 033 – “Hidden Danger”

Today’s Very Special Episode is all about Susan learning to be independent.

I was going to go with a “1 Girl, 2 Aliens” joke, but they’re all aliens. Plus it isn’t 2008.

So today’s theme, in addition to Susan learning to assert herself, is the Sensorites and the humans, plus Susan and the Doctor, all learning about trust.

I’m kind of bored, so I’m going to take a moment to laugh at the astronaut uniforms. You know they’re for astronauts because they have rockets sewn onto them! Good grief.

So the Sensorites are led by someone I’m going to call First Elder Expositionus. He really gives an impressive info-dump here. He and others put me in mind of a group of rabbis debating. Admittedly, rabbis with terrible skin conditions.

Ian’s line of, “But some are happier than others, eh?” was very good.

In my boredom I’m noticing that the incidental music here is a repeat of stuff we’ve heard before. It’s not nearly as noticeable as it is with, say, 30 Rock or  Downton Abbey, but it’s there.

Next time: “A Race Against Death”
