Planet of Evil


(Series 13, Episodes 5-8)

Summary: At the edge of the universe, Doctor Who plays fast and loose with theoretical physics, as the Doctor and Sarah are menaced by a pencil scribble.  An investigative team in low-cut spacesuits with a penchant for orderly interrogations, arrive to rescue obsessive scientist Sorensen, only to find that anti-matter causes excess hair growth.  Commander Salamar must be terribly fit, what with all the conclusions he keeps jumping to, and the model work is excellent.

Watch it because: Reassuringly reasonable Vishinksy.
