Doctor Who: Sound of Drums  
Watched it last night, but never really got back to the computer. My mum literally called as the preview for next week's was finishing. and after that, I had to make those cookies.

It wasn't the squee machine last week's was, but not a bad episode. Mrs. Master was a trip! Brings a whole new meaning to 'companion'!

Loved the flashbacks to Gallifrey! I'm always a big fan of more Gallifrey [g]

Nice to see UNIT finally get some airtime, even if only by mention. Though the idea that the UN was going to remove the British PM from power was pretty darn silly. Big ol' eye roll moment there. And then during the welcome speech, the guy who's supposed to be the President introduces himself as 'President Elect'. That was baffling.

Did I mention I loved the Gallifrey bits?!?!

Oh, yes, and the Doctor telling Martha she watched too much TV when she mentioned that the Master might be the Doctor's long lost brother. [snorfle]

And I'm sorry, Doctor, you're going to save the Master? Yeah, like that's worked out so well for you in the past! Do we remember Castrovalva? Thank you. I'll go with Jack's plan.

The phone conversation between the Doctor and the Master was probably the best part of the episode for me.

Oh, and ninjababe made DW icons last night! They're very pretty, so go take a look.

Yes the phone conversation pushed all the right buttons :)

Did you spot the jelly baby moment?

Have to agree Doctor trying to save Master never has turned out too well!

Yes, I did catch that!

I'm curious. I haven't seen the old series, and I'm wondering what The Doctor's relationship with the Master really is. Not like that, lol. ;p But I was under the impression he didn't care for the Master much, so why would he be interested in saving him?

He was the Doctor's nemesis, another Timelord who'd been kicked out by Gallifrey. The Doctor in the original series was initially a renegade because he used his Timelord powers to help people aka interfere :) That's why the TARDIS was always a police box, it's chameleon circuit was broken so it couldn't change to blend in with its surrounding area.

To tell you the truth, I'm not quite buying this new Master. There's just something off for me.
