side project week 5: classic who

This week brings us Planet of the Daleks!

Which totally doesn't deserve that exclamation point at all. I found it long and boring, and weird in that what-were-they-thinking way. Liquid ice that never hardens? A whole planetary core made of it? A jungle that the Daleks want to trundle around in? Plants that spit tobacco juice that makes a gross fungal coating that has nothing to do with anything except that Jo gets it and spends a big portion of the serial unconscious? Big hairy purple creatures?? A guy that Jo falls in love with, only to very easily tell him no, which he doesn't fight at all, knowing that she's leaving at the end of the next serial?

Not at all impressed. Hopefully the last Jo story will show her at her best so she can go out on a high note.
