Radio Free Skaro #82 – The Doctor’s Disaster


We never go into a new RFS wishing to slag the living hell out of the latest episode of what is, after all, our favorite program…but we were left with little choice after “The Doctor’s Daughter,” which had such potential but fell far short of the mark. Our anger was tempered by the usual news, diversions, and a shout out to our new friends at Tachyon TV….but ouch, here’s hoping for better fare from the BBC next week. Still, our balderdash is as engaging and filled with bon mots as ever.

On the subject to the Jenny coming back alive thing…

Jenny was within her first 15 hours of her “Regeneration” so that she had enough residual cellular energy to fix her wound. Its also why they kept referencing the hand in the episode so that the viewers could remember it happening in The Chrismas Invasion. Thats why the effect was the same.

Personally I kind of liked the fact that Jenny is alive and out there somewhere. Maybe Moffet suggested keeping her alive so he can use her later in another, more Moffet, story.

Having now totally nerded out, I shall now go back into my hole.

Well I have to say I that I enjoyed the episode more than you guys did, but I think that your comments on all the plot holes is quite accurate. But her is one; all the solders that where created by the machines where in battle fatigues, but Jenny was in form fitting latex or leather jeans, and a green t-shirt. Which I have no problem with.

I think that the character of Jenny is the loop hole for what they are going to do when the Doctor comes to the end of his regeneration. Now we have a Female version of him running around the universe.
