Another wonderful review! I think my favorite bit was “Dude! What the fuck?” Because that’s EXACTLY what it looked like.
There have been 750 nuclear weapons detonated above ground since 1945. Britain currently has 160 operational thermonuclear warheads. This is clearly not enough to destroy the planet, or kill everything on it.
What about all the nukes on the planet? Enough to kill everything? Was ANYTHING in the ep realistic? (Guessing not)
Is it only Britain who have their defence codes held by the UN, or is this the same for all the world’s nuclear powers? If it’s the former, why didn’t the Slitheen infiltrate a different country? If it’s the latter, no country can retaliate against Britain without UN approval.
Not to mention that nuking the planet is the least efficient way to generate radioactive waste. There’s only a few kilograms of nuclear material per bomb, and it gets scattered all over the place because bombs tend to explode. If the aliens were looking for a scam of some kind they could sell space trinkets to the governments of Earth in exchange for the tons and tons of radioactive waste that’s just sitting around and governments would be happy to get rid of.
What’s more, if radioactive waste were a good starship fuel then why wouldn’t most ships have a nuclear reactor on board to make their own radioactive slag? Nuclear reactors run for years without refueling and again, produce far more waste than a nuclear bomb. If aliens had this kind of technology, then their entire plan makes even less sense.
Awesome video. These episodes are just plain bad..
And speaking of things that are plain bad, I hope you’ll do the A Good Man Goes to War/Let’s Kill Hitler “two-parter” eventually. And I use the word “two-parter” lightly since they have almost nothing to do with each other yet are apparently still classified as such.
Whatever it is that comes next, I look forward to it 🙂 Always love these Who reviews!
The vinegar really should act like an acid, seeing as vinegar is in fact an acid. Calcium reacts to acid, but not generally like that. I really do hate the Raxacoricofallapatorians. I suggest the application of the acid rain harvesting technology from Wardrobe to the entire planet of Raxacoricofallapatorius.
Rasen reference FTW!! Y’know, there are a lot of random gaps in my New Who viewing history, particularly for Series 1. I am NOT at all sorry I missed these ones the first time around.
I have a suggestion, why not do a review of a good episode of either new or classic Who? For classic you could do something like Pyramid of Mars, Genesis of the Daleks, (if you can’t tell, I’m a huge Fourth Doctor Fan) or the Five Doctors or any of the other countless really good classic episodes. And for new Who, maybe something like Rings of Ahketan, or Blink, or, even though you refuse see Eccleston as the Doctor, The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances. But if you want to stick to the usual format, then how about doing something ESPECIALLY awful and go with the TV Movie?
Doing a good ep kinda goes against the point of the show (angry fannish rage) but I am planning an ep where I’ll show off some good episodes of New Who. It will likely be the next Twatty Who video.
Well I can EASILY say that I’m patiently awaiting the next. Big fan! Keep up the good work. 🙂
