ZERO-G REVIEWS: DOCTOR WHO – SEASON SEVEN: EPISODE TWO – DINOSAURS ON A SPACESHIP

ZERO-G REVIEWS: DOCTOR WHO - SEASON SEVEN: EPISODE TWO - DINOSAURS ON A SPACESHIP
(SHHHHHPOILERS!!)

Here’s a picture of the Doc, well actually, a pair-’o-Docs. And a Silurian. Riding a dinosaur! On a spaceship!

Participants include a "Jurassic Park" ‘tricey’, which you can see has a little pre-scored chunk of flesh that can be popped out to reveal juicy internal organs…what a jolly kiddie toy that one was! I’ve got the 3rd and 11th Doctor from the big "11 Doctor Who" action figure set. Oh, yes and a Silurian lassy. Throw in a couple of velociraptors. A TARDIS telephone ringer. And one of the Galoob toy "Star Trek Next Generation" shuttlecrafts. All snapped against the traditional black velvet backdrop. Fun, eh? Though I don’t mind telling you that it was a regular pain to set up, as the dino’s got a broad back and everyone had to ride side saddle, and kept dismounting, and then the whole thing tended to slide off the smooth-hulled shuttlecraft but I had to persevere because it’s not Dinosaurs OFF a spaceship, after all.

——————————————————————————————————————————

The Australian broadcast of Doctor Who’s "Dinosaurs On A Spaceship" (September 16th, 2012) felt like it had been quirkily fortified with an injection of DNA (That is to say, Douglas N. Adams, who apart from the obvious “H2G2” connection was also a former story editor and writer for “Doctor Who”), perhaps most obviously manifest in the rusty tantrum throwing robots, fussily voiced by comedy duo, Mitchell and Webb. (David Mitchell has some interesting links to Doctor Who criticism and satire. Oh, go google it yourself!) You’ve got to love them or hate them but then again they’re not in your face for all that long and besides, I have a sneaking suspicion that they must just be ‘taking off’ the Ponds, on a bad day!

Writer Chris Chibnall’s script cheerfully flaunts its gimmick in the breathless title (Did you catch the saurian scales in the actual title card in the opening credits?) but he’s far too accomplished a wordsmith to fail to properly flesh out what could’ve been a one note concept. I loved the way all the wee details introduced came back as little grace notes later on. Joss Whedon would approve! Chibnall has lashings of experience with the pivotal though off-stage Silurians as well as heavy duty Whovian and genre credits. His C.V is another one to google for. (I’ll wait.)

Doctor 3.0, Jon Pertwee, and companion Sarah Jane Smith, Elisabeth Sladen, along with the stalwart squaddies from U.N.I.T famously struggled with some sadly wobbly looking saurians in the 1974 serial, “Invasion Of The Dinosaurs.” (Dinosaurs! Time travelling! In Chroma Key!) Even for back then they looked a bit rubbish; hardly an issue here with the splendid CGI critters and some well sculpted physical props on display. No, I shan’t be smug about it, or indeed, ‘Smaug’, following the reptilian line. How do you think today’s special effects wizards GOT so good anyway…by standing on the shoulders of the teshnicians before them.

The usual breakneck, one story per episode, pace worked mostly to the story’s advantage, though in this case it did mean we were shortchanged with the ad-hoc companions, who inevitably ended up as slightly sketchy tertiary characters once the main ‘gang’ slots were filled with the Ponds and Rory’s dad. Although it helps if you just think of them as similar background level characters to, say, the personable security guards, Stubbs and Cotton, in Bob Baker and Dave Martin’s 3rd Doctor era serial, "The Mutants". (By the way, "The Mutants" is set in the 24th Century, same as "Dinos"! Where was there spacefleet?) The single episode format of "Dinos" prevents them from rising to, for example, the same delightful level as Jago and Litefoot from the 4th Doctor story "The Talons of Weng-Chiang."

I still enjoyed meeting Queen Nefertiti and Mr Riddell, with the former having fun with the saucily haughty historical stereotype and the latter channeling fictional adventurer Allan Quatermain. (Moore please!) Rupert Graves was a suitably ‘pukka’ hero with an appropriate measure of cool professional enthusiasm so long as he can bag a dino tooth. Best moments for Neffers was when she got flirty with Riddell and later kicked Solomon…right in the crutch!

Although the historical proximity of Lestrade..sorry..Riddell, Nefertiti, Jago, Litefoot, and the Silurian Samurai Vastra and her sidekick, Jenny, along with other Victorian/Edwardian Doctor Who characters does make me think that there could be a rather spiffing period team-up story along the lines of "The League Of Extraordinary Companions". Which is only fair, since Alan Moore’s perfect pastiche tips its hat to both Silurians and Sea-Devils as well as several Doctors.

WHERE did the Doctor pick up an Edwardian big game hunter as a friend, anyway? Perhaps some ripping yarn in which an alien hunter iro
