Empress Of Mars

“It’s a movie. You’d like it too. Everybody dies.”

Slightly disappointed that it's 1881, not Space: 1889. :D

“I have a bad feeling about this...”

Love the spacesuits. Both our heroes’ new ones and the cobbled-together Victorian one.

Sometimes people just end up on other planets. The Whoniverse is like that.

The bundling-up gun is well weird. Creepy when the body rocks slightly before settling.

He’s actually showing a picture of the girl he’s going to marry! These are really pre-trope people, which makes them feel quite strange.


And a hint of Holst’s Mars, The Bringer Of War in the soundtrack. As well as being apt for the obvious reasons, it links all the way back to The Quatermass Experiment, which Mark Gatiss appeared in the remake of in 2005, near the dawn of the new Who era.

And next week, the Lost Legion.
