Episode 034 – “A Race Against Death”

Ian has collapsed from a severe case of TV Illness! There’s only one solution…

“I’m going to have to science the shit out of this.”

The Doctor does so pretty quickly, forming a strategy to cure an illness in a few days that an entire planet of doctors hasn’t been able to cure in a much longer time. Because, you know, he’s the Doctor.

I find it amusing that the Sensorites basically think we all look alike. One of the humans also remarks that without the sashes the Sensorites wear the humans could never tell them apart, either. Well, I’m sure that won’t come back to bite anyone in the ass.

We get a science montage, which is ok, I guess. But without inspirational 1980s music playing over it, I just can’t be bothered.

I have to say, this is a really boring episode. The only thing that saved it was my realization that not-Richard Hammond is wearing a headpiece that looks as though he stole it from Doc Brown.

Next time: “Kidnap”
