The Wheel in Space - Episode One
Written by - David Whitaker (Story by Kit Pedler) Director - Tristan de Vere Cole Producer - Peter Bryant
Episode One
("What's happened to the crew?" - The Doctor to Jamie about the odd lack of crew in the rocket left drifting in space.)
Likes
- Haha, the scanner not working so they don't know what is outside the TARDIS.  Poor old girl is just not in the mood for this shit today.
- The TARDIS is warning them not to go outside and go somewhere else.  I like when she gets protective.  Also it means the Doctor brought them to this place, she had nothing to do with it except be the vehicle.  Probably to let the Doctor go where he wants after the loss of Victoria. Aww.
- Hah first the fault locator is brought back in and now so too is the fluid link. 
- Jamie just pressing random buttons to see what happens. 
- Oh god XD  Jamie telling the Doctor to stick his rod back in and then they can go somewhere else, while they are in an abandoned rocket ship living quarters with bunk beds right next to them. Just...word usage, you know. 
- Ooh, it's rare the Doctor is taken out of commission by a knock on the head.  Usually that's reserved for companions.  I like when things go wrong and he is injured like that. Is that weird?  It just happens so rarely. 
- Jamie blowing shit up. Yes.  Can we have more of that, please?
Dislikes
- Silly thing really to dislike but...the fault locator going from a huge boxy machine that takes up almost a whole wall from One's time to a small boxy part of the console. When did this happen?
- Uh, Doctor, lollies like lemon sherbets don't tend to quench thirst.  At least not to me.  They make me even thirstier.  Nice going there.  As it is it will get the horrible taste of gas and smoke out of their mouths, so hey, I'll take it.
- Why did Jamie randomly grab a blanket?  He hadn't seen the robot at that point I am pretty sure, so it is just a random act.
Awesome
- I like how there are quite a few scenes which still exist in this one, especially inside the TARDIS.  So we get to see the TARDIS slowly starting to smoke as the 'battery' fries. 
- I like the look of the rocket ship set Jamie and the Doctor land on.  The inside of it that is. 
- Nice job on sound effects on this one all round. 
- I know there's an animated version of this first episode only because I have watched it before, but I am going for the recon on this, because it matches with the rest.  The recon I got is animated in parts and shiny with some nice effects.
Shitty
- It's missing.  Oh yay, boy do I miss recons.  Thankfully I am almost done with these.  Two episodes of this story still exist and I believe 1 for The Space Pirates does too.  Then no more will be missing.  Yay. Thankfully, this isn't bad quality recons.  
In Conclusion
I liked this episode quite a bit.  We have a mystery going on.  We have a space station crew.  We have a drifted, abandoned cargo rocket ship.  We have the Doctor and Jamie not knowing where they are with the Doctor hurt and in and out of consciousness leaving Jamie alone.
It's a really nice start to the story.    And the recons aren't bad quality, which is a major bonus, and there are scenes from the animated version which weren't animated and you miss a bit of the story with that one.  I am glad I went with the recon.
Also, we get a crew that calls each other by their first names.  That's also rare.  Usually even in isolated working environments like this in the show, everyone calls each other by their last names and/or rank.  Here, they all call each other by their first names or nicknames.  Tanya was called Tiny at one stage, I am sure of it. 
Body count - 0.  A robot got blown up by Jamie, but that isn't a living being so can't be killed.

Thing I'm gonna be working on.
My school was founded in the 60s, so to commemorate that, the art department decided to do a big 60s psychedelic art mural. Music, pop culture, etc was included but not really cinema.
So I decided to do Doctor Who related stuff. (Classic who obv.) And I settled on the 1st doctor and a Mondasian cyberman uwu

What would you do to the CyberMasters if you stay alive after the Master's backstabbing?
Hm. See. The Master and I had a talk aboard the Cyber Carrier about the whole situation. Converting his 'hoard' of dead Time Lord bodies. The Cyberium was taking time to process and dictate on its decision.
To me, the idea felt like it was a stain on the Cyber Race. The cybermen were meant to be converted humans. So if I survived his betrayal.
The Cyber Masters wouldn't exist because I would still have the cyberium
If I somehow lost the Cyberium anyway and went to create his damnable things, I would try my best to destroy them. And then him.

You've been asked before what's your favorite cybermen, what's your least favorite?
Tumblr media
This one. I like all types of cybermen, but this one just. Hm. Why did they choose the tear drop style on the mouth. It looks like it's perpetually going :P
I'm glad that trend didn't continue. But hey it gave way for the standard eye style.

So what do you think of Lisa the Cyberwoman?
She was a... Very... Peculiar example of cyber conversion being halted... She's very interesting and thats about as much as I can say about it.

The Master now seems to be associated with the Cybermen. Not sure how to feel about that.
