Hello, and welcome back to Flight Through
Entirety’s Doctor Who in Ten Seconds. Today, it’s all about smugglers, Scotsmen and sugar
as we embark on Doctor Who Season 4. Start the clock. [Doctor Who Theme, sped up by a factor of
2.54, but not pitch shifted. I’m not an animal] The Doctor, Ben and Polly avoid changing history
by failing to remember a simple poem, which then triggers a war between smugglers and pirates.
They do get to enjoy a trip to Cornwall however, which may well be punishment enough. The Cybermen debut and fall apart, despite
copious amounts of sticky tape. It’s the end of the line for the First Doctor as
his memory wears a bit thin to the point that Ben absorbs his scientific knowledge while
Billy has one final week off. The new Doctor debuts on the planet Vulcan
(no, not that one) and discovers a deadly deluge of deceitful Daleks. The Second Doctor, Ben
and Polly prove to be a great team, and David Whitaker proves that he can write Daleks better
than Terry Nation. During the Jacobite rebellions, the Doctor
frocks up, Ben enters the wet t-shirt contest, Polly traps a redcoat in a pit, and we get
a feisty Scottish girl as a new comp- oh, wait, no, sorry, we got Jamie.
Eh, he’s still cool though. Jamie’s first trip is to one of the three
Atlantises where our heroes stage a strike of seaweed farming fish people, preventing
a mad scientist from taking over the world with cosmetic surgery, a pet octopus and a
giant plunger. The Cybermen are back, attacking a weather
controlling Moonbase, using a deadly combination of sickening sugar and funky fascinators.
Polly deals with them by making an acid out of nail polish remover.
You don’t get that on Blue Peter. [Doctor Who Theme again, sped up,
with added spangles!] Jamie gets gas, Polly gets a retroactive haircut,
and Ben gets a bad case of crabs. Doctor Who puts a whole generation off going to holiday
camps as their parents try to assure them- THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS MACRA. Shape shifting aliens, shape shifting planes
and shape shifting accents abound as Polly and Ben are crated off and the Doctor and
Jamie investigate disappearances at Airwick Gatport alongside a Liverpudlian Queen Victoria.
Ta-ra, Ben and Polly! The Dalek Emperor hatches a scheme involving
mirrors, time travel, human DNA, outrageous 19th century sideburns and
the most racist version of Gladiators you’ve ever seen. The Doctor and Jamie adopt a Victorian orphan
called Victoria quicker than you can say Pygmalion. Thank you all for watching Doctor Who in 10
Seconds Season 4, and thank you all for your patience in this late running video. I’m hoping
to have Season 5 out in about two weeks. Until then, check us out online at flightthroughentirety.com,
Flight Through Entirety on Facebook and iTunes, and FTEPodcast on Twitter, not forgetting Bondfinger,
or my mate Kieran over on All the Gory Details. I’m off to fill a Dalek with cellulose wallpaper paste!
