Doctor Who Series 7 continues as a mysterious unknown spaceship is heading to Earth in the 24th century, and ISA needs the help of the Doctor (Matt Smith). Enlisting the help of the Ponds (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill), Queen Nefertiti (Riann Steele), and 19th century English explorer John Riddell (Rupert Graves from Steven Moffat‘s Sherlock), the Doctor also manages to drag Rory Williams’ father Brian (Mark Williams) along.
As they investigate the mysterious craft, they discover a surprise that creates more mystery than it does answers: Dinosaurs on a Spaceship…
During TARDISblend 53, we examine the new characters and organizations introduced in this episode, as well as the evolution of Amy and Rory as companions as they transition towards their departure. We also discuss the fabulous quality CGI effects used on this episode for the dinosaurs, which was quite spectacular.
Meanwhile, we dissect the interesting dichotomy and symbolism between the Doctor and his new villain, Solomon (David Bradley). We examine Steven Moffat’s approach to the longer overarching storyline across seasons, particularly to the question that should not be asked: “Doctor Who?”, and provide some Classic Doctor Who recommendations to our listeners.
