Which brings me to my final iTunes viewing of the Third Doctor: The Time Monster.
England, the near future. Professor Thascales’ TOMTIT project is nearing completion… but why is a simple matter transmitter causing disruption to the flow of time? And what exactly is Kronos, the time monster itself?
Yes, the twelve year old me giggled every time someone mentioned the TOMTIT project. Actually, I chuckled a bit right now when I typed it, too. Tom. Tit. [chuckle.]
THE GOOD: Duh… The Master! I can’t get enough of Roger Delgado’s version of the ultimate baddie in the Doctor Who universe. The man oozed evil with personality. My man Mr. Master pretends to be a professor, travels in time to Atlantis, and (AND!) convinces that hot queen to help him out. HELLO BOOBS
Is she, too, a part of the TOMTIT project? [more chuckling.]
The Master = pure awesome.
THE BAD: The name “TOMTIT”. [snort. giggle.]
THE CHEESE: Kronos, The allegedly epically powerful super bird like being that is (obviously) a man in white costume flapping his wings in a very silly fashion. Check it out:
It should also be pointed out that this episode, like The Time Warrior, features some Star Wars co-mingling goodness: David Prowse aka “Darth Vader” is the Minotaur in Atlantis in this series. The Force, though, was not strong with him since he gets killed in the maze.
