S02E07 - The Space Museum
Clothes change without changing, water glasses un-break, and there is a decisive lack of footprints and sound! That is what makes this so fantastic: It’s all about watching the crew explore and make guesses on how and why everything happens up until the first episode cliffhanger.
Obviously part one is a gem, but the rest of the story really doesn’t deserve as much ire as it receives. It’s another first for the TARDIS crew - personal timelines! This story was fun, if not occasionally sloppy. It is also Doctor Who addressing fatalism as only time travelers can. The crew second guesses everything they do as they do it, and it is fascinating.
Once again The Doctor giggles his way to victory, Barbara is criminally underused, and Ian acts approximately twelve. This story really belongs to Vicki, who starts a revolution, and saves the day simply by making friends. That said, the Xerons need a slap upside the head. I’d be surprised if they could brush their own teeth without someone there to hold their hands. What really makes it worth it is the Moroks. They were fantastic villains, if only by merit of how bored they seem with the job!
On a personal note - not long ago two of my favorite tumblrs followed me and the face I made was basically the same as Vicki’s durring her water glass scene. Hello ladies! I am so excited you’ve allowed me to grace your dash.
Also, apparently while sketching this one I didn’t think much of costume continuity (wibbly wobbly? no? ok.)
