Doctor Who 01 ‘The Keys of Marinus’by: Radio.Free.Skaro • tags: 1960s • Doctor.Who • free
From Radio Free Skaro:
Warren returns to the fold this week, having thought he had escaped the worst that Doctor Who could offer by missing the commentary for Time-Flight last week. Instead, Hartnell-phobe Warren was given both barrels of black and white mediocrity in the form of The Keys of Marinus, one of the lesser lights of the debut season of Doctor Who from 1964. Actually, the Three Who Rule managed to keep themselves reasonably entertained throughout the first three episodes of Terry Nation’s best non-Dalek script that he ever wrote for Doctor Who…until the thought of having to watch three more episodes next week brought everyone back down to Earth.
The Three Who Rule celebrated the fourth anniversary of by enduring one of the slowest news weeks in recent memory as next to nothing happened in the last seven days in the world of Doctor Who. Fortunately (?), the gang had the latter half of The Keys of Marinus to help them through it all. And if that wasn’t enough to sate them, well, there’s always finding out what story they’ll be commenting on next week. Go, Randomizer!
