The Space Museum: Doctor Who: Season 2








The Space Museum SYNOPSIS:

The TARDIS jumps a time track when it lands in a huge space museum on the planet Xeros. Neither the native Moroks or Xerons can see the time travellers as they explore the museum, who find a dalek casing amongst the exhibits and also find themselves and the TARDIS as immobile exhibits. The time track snaps back and the TARDIS crew exhibits vanish however they still within the museum.

Lobos, the Xeros governor and museum curator wants to restore the glory of the old Morok empire and finding the TARDIS wants the occupants tracked down. The Doctor is captured first and interrogated, Vicki meets the enslaved Xerons and aids them in their planned revolution, helping them gain access to the Xeros armoury. 

Ian frees the Doctor as Lobos is in the process of freezing him into an exhibit. However all four travellers are soon re-captured by Morok guards and their predicted future of being turned into museum exhibits looks certain to become true unless the Xeron revolt succeeds in overthrowing their hated masters.

The Space Museum REVIEWS


The first episode was actually almost intriguing with time frozen in it's tracks and all that guff. A real mystery leading up to a good cliffhanger, with the whole crew supposedly killed and stuffed in display cases as seen by themselves from slipping a groove in time. Must be the first instance of a time related problem in Dr Who.

Unfortunately from being interesting enter part 2 and back in real time and becomes bland, tedious and dull with bad guys in white skivvy's with silly wigs who can't act taking on good guys in black skivvy's with silly eyebrows who act worse. Bugger started so well and was bored enough to sleep through the entire second half...

For part 1 only 2/10


This is the latest edition to the "Fear Her" category. This is soooooooooooooooooooooooo dull and sooooooooooooooooooooooo bloody boring that...................... I dunno, I give up. It - I - ummmm - WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS ABOUT????? Its terrible! I just wanna bang my head on the table to stop the boredom its so dull. Who are the aliens? What are they up to? What is their purpose? Who gives a fuck? There is one thing that scares me more than being forced to watch this again and that is logging onto my emails tomorrow to find that Tim has decided to piss me off again by giving it a 10/10 score like he did with "Fear Her". Its another big ZERO OUTTA FUCKING TEN FROM ME!!!!!


The idea of this is quite good... they see themselves trapped in a Space Museum in the future, and have to work out a way to make sure it doesn't happen. I remember a bit of a teaser that made you think it was Dalek related in there too... But yeah, it got a bit dry after that... I think they may have spent all their budget on The Web Planet - I was reading that all departments went all out for The Web Planet, and something had to suffer... it was this one!
