Rewatch - Doctor Who
Spaceship Dispatcher
This is very much a pastiche of Nigel Kneale and Dennis Wheatley, along with the films and shows based on their work. So brilliant, the way the tone is lowered for a family audience without losing any of the flavour.
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

Here's us, Spaceship Dispatcher, Paula and Trevor Travis having some refreshment at the Blue Boar, or the Devil's Hoof in Doctor Who.

It is Hoof, isn't it?

The pub was called the Cloven Hoof wasn't it? In the show, that is! Grin

My brain seized up a bit just now. Yes, the Cloven Hoof. I think I have a photo taken of the pub sign which is on the wall of the pub still. Let me check.

Not familiar with those guys, what films did they make?

"You'd never get a cat to be a servant. You ever see a cat return a stick? "Hey, man! You threw the stick, you go get it yourself! I'm busy! If you wanted the stick so bad, why'd you throw it away in the first place?"

The black and white copy of mine works quite well given the tone of this episode. Also- this village is so tiny, it actually looks bigger on screen to me.

Yes, I have to agree. Anthony Ainley was good, very good but Roger was the best. I don't have much use for the John Simm master or the new female one- Missy to tell you the truth.

Nigel Kneale created Quatermass for the BBC, and wrote the screenplays for The Abominable Snowmen and The Witches for Hammer films. Dennis Wheatley wrote supernatural horror, but most notably The Devil Rides Out which was turned into a Hammer film 3 years before this story and with a lot of similarities.

Geoffrey Beevers was the Master in Keeper of Traken. Lovely man. Met him a while back at a con. Was married to Caroline John (Liz Shaw). Met her, too.

Sounds right up my alley.
I think classic Who had a lot of Hammer like stories.

This episode also smacks of Quatermass and the Pit, when the 'devil' is unleashed. Love that film. It has Gareth Thomas at the beginning.

Nothing against the actor, I just don't like the Skeletor style master.

Grrrr... don't even mention Missy. Oops

Anthony Ainley was good, and Geoffrey Beevers has turned out to have a real grasp of the character in the audios of both the BBC and Big Finish. John Simm is a good actor, and I have seen him on stage too, but I don't buy either of the most recent Masters; even less so than Eric Roberts...

I didn't realise on first viewing, along with many other viewers again, that the pub interior was also a studio!
