Oh really is kind of a question about if it means anything anyway. I I suspect the Mazda had just watched some Daniel Craig bond films. Yeah and set everything. Hang up the master. Who is really doing the Amish James Bond here progress exactly so the so and we are setpiece at the winery and vineyard of in In the wine country in California. There's a casino party. They dress up for Jodie. Whittaker gets to wear her her her Tuxedo top and and her bow tie. Everybody else dressed up She doesn't go all the way she's still got the short. Whatever pants are the little short pants now? She's just putting her own stamp on on the night but I did like she. Did the you know the names adult to the doctor which amused little bit. Yeah a little the bond bondage. Maybe just a little given the high. The music in every one of those scenes goes almost to the point of Legis. Love like Jon. Barry cut kind of yeah And there's Roulette and actually in a joke that I really like. It's a joke. Oh could I made some of my friends and I watched every James Bond movie when I was in high school in a marathon and we made a multiple James Bond parody movies when we were when we were in high school and one of the scenes that we had in multiple parodies was the confusing gambling scene because bond movies especially the ones that have they. They like car casinos. And they like Becker at which is the most. If you just see backer add being played. It doesn't make any sense like it's what is happening so we. We did a riff on that. And I feel like that is what what spy fall is ripping on when the doctor keeps taking cards and then putting things down and everybody looks at her and she's like is that not the game we're playing. It's like who knows what these games are that they're playing at the casino. It doesn't make any sense so it made me laugh and yeah and and we have been and I think Bentley or something drives off and then conveniently we have a number of motorbikes before just just before we get there she does confront. Yes that is that is the perfect James Bond right because it's that moment where you meet the mastermind and you talk you meets meets the socially at a casino often and talk and it's very threatening and yet also very kind of just a conversation is like I wouldn't be so sure if I were you. It's that kind of conversation and that's what it is like. It's that she's like oh I I have a habit of sticking around either. Don't come around here anymore and it's like we're we're not gonNA fight right here but but you know everybody is on notice that this is what's going to happen. That could not be more James Bond like scene but he tried. He claims ignorance on a number of things things and I did start to wonder. Maybe he is ignorant of something Given given the overall setup like he might not have known what percentage of human he was right but as it turns out it's probably point indeed indeed so he So yes we do get the we get the chase scene where the convenient bikes and another line. Good doctor who line the line. That made me really laugh is basically the doctor says. Hey remember when we went to the bike the festival on our bike trip or whatever. So let's read these motorcycles. Because in a previously unseen adventure they They rode motorbikes. So they jump on the motorbikes and chase down the the car through Greenwich going through You know down the dirt roads and in-between. The row is of the vineyard which I enjoyed. I thought that was fun. Yes I mean you know to the private apple had been referenced Mr Lear Yes many planes Yes I it's not just that but it's the Let me tell you about flying. I like to fly. I fly my friends around. I'm sure this won't be important later. Go I see that was not it seemed extraneous. At the time is the classic Wayne's World Line it was like Oh yeah there it is I like to fly. You don't say well we'll come back and of course the plane that you pick Ferrario you'll day-to-day flying is the one that has the bake cargo Luding Bay on the back and we'll hold hundreds of passengers because it's a rather than a little private jet which I think is I think maybe he is down to the fact that they that's the set that they could use as like an airplane set like an airline set and they didn't have a private jet set or something and so they use this instead. I don't oh now but there there seemed to be. I don't really quite understand why that was the plan that he he chose other than for production reasons outside of it but it's fine. He's just that wasteful as a billionaire that he'll fly a seven forty seven around if he needs to Let's see what what else what else happens. So so we're on the plane Ah We've reached the kind of wear the entire episode has been leading this play. They get O- on just by the skin of his teeth because he's very slow ship sprinter. He's not a championship sprinter. which is the problem because the doctor says a wait? Wait a second you you were a championship sprinter when you were a kid. And he has more. He's like so close. What what what I mean this is? There's a lot of spy stuff right. So it's like secret double agent twisting except in in that moment. It's a great moment and I did not see it coming. He says look I told you to look for the spy master and as a doctor who fan you're like You know and he says that's why I picked the name. Yes I mean it was a good reveal Yeah so I was thinking so I- suming. He's a sort of post Johnson pre. Michelle Gomez. I'm not sure how the timelines work or is he. Not Alsan John Simm regenerates intimate Shell Gomez so I think he is either John Simm and pre I. Here's here's here's my yes in in that episode at the end of the Peter Crepaldi era. She says she vaguely Remembers Waking Up. Like after having been shot. And all that it's like it's very strongly hinted at least that they're linked. I'm going to assume that. In the grand tradition of the master that although we saw Michelle Gomez is master very clearly die. And Have Johnson say you won't regenerate suffice it to say she did and now there's a new master I've what kind of the buster guns dies definitively over and over again and then later reappears and just as Oh no. I didn't die or it could be a mouse from the other universe that these creatures are from or could be parallel master or it could be that yes it's from previous it's somewhere after the classic series and before the Modern Taylor seemed to be very much into tissue compression. Yeah that's true so it's just post Anthony Ainley or maybe it's preregister Delgado. I don't no no but but I I would just say that usually the TV series likes to just say. Oh yeah well. It's the master. He's back he figured out a way. I did like Sasha Doin- doing the sort of you know the Oh yes I am. Evil I shall know to the scenery scenery and and the I because one of the things. That's great about the master. Is the master really. Enjoys his work right like he does it for the fun of it. He does the evil plans and things for fun to toy with people to to end so he does that in this where he's just SORTA giggling. He's like this is great. Like I don't don't have to hide it anymore. I love it. This is fantastic. I got you if she hadn't picked up on the running thing I don't know how he he was gonNA do the reveal. But but yeah I I I liked it. I think he will be a good master. Assuming assuming that he sticks around for the rest of the season slash disinclination yeah. He was the thing I was. It's time to remember where I'd seen him before and he was in Iron Fist as Davos. The the person who didn't get the Iron Fist list and so I had him in my head as being somewhat evil which I didn't know why he was somewhat evil but I had my suspicions by hi Tim but nothing concrete and certainly not concrete right but yeah but yeah I like to. I mean it was like a bit like a to the Johnson reveal except I in Volta Regeneration but I just came out of you you know left field. Yes this Dr Johnson thing. It's also him saying. Oh yeah well what happened was I went back in his time line. And then shrunk him into a little toy that I keep in a box and replaced him regenerated into him replaced him and And then have been and building within intelligence circles and all that building for this this day when you met me before it was me but I was playing the long game because I love to play the long game which is very master the thing I should say also. So there's our friend Lenny. Henry Daniel Barton has disappeared. He went into the cockpit but he's not there anymore but there was a bomb there which has got a minute to go before blows up and The master says everything you think you know is ally and then he and the doctor basically the bomb goes off. He and the doctor basically are taken in or he disappears or he goes elsewhere. I'm not quite sure. The doctor goes in to the same place where he has was. Before the meanwhile the doctor's actress companions are all in a crashing airplane. And that's our cliffhanger propaganda who everyone's clearly going to die cliffhanger that will be resolved within thirty thirty four days yes thirty seconds and four days right next. Episode is is only Sunday but so so funny. You know a first episode of the season. You WanNa kick things off you go. I think kind of broad especially if you're in your Britain in Britain you're the BBC you you want to have a big audience. You want to get them to remember who the characters were. You WanNa have some fun and some big stuff. I feel like that's the rule of a holiday special and it's it's the rule of a first episode. That you you A. I know this seems weird but like I really feel like those episodes. Follow a different playbook and must be judged accordingly then you're like episode five in the middle of a series. It's a different kind of thing. You're you're you're it's the big kickoff cough and this is both. This is a holiday special. That is the big kickoff. which has never happened before really on doctor who in the modern series so and and and so how I judge it is that which is you know? It's it's part one so he doesn't have a conclusion. It has a lot of funny jokes. It has a lot of interesting set pieces with action and suspense. It sets up a lot of kind of ridiculous things that some of which seem to not matter anymore because they had the master reveal the master reveal was good and I like Sasha Don. I think he's a good actor so I really enjoy that kind of pairing. I hope to see a lot more of him doing this because it was fun and beyond that. I'm not quite sure how to evaluate this episode. It's it's because it's trying to do something different from your run-of-the-mill doctor who episode. Yeah I I think it'll be interesting to see what episode three of the series is like once. They they they not they don't have the big two-parter and they don't have the holiday thing thing to hang it on feels very russell. Russell t davies to me to write like big big and James Bond and style parody genre parody garrity or or to that on New Year's Day it feels like a maybe Chris for this series was taking a page from Rusty Davis. We worked with for several years in being late. Let's go big and broad and get everybody in front of the tally to watch doctor. Who Yeah I mean?.
