X-wing battle with the spitfires in the gravity bubbles
Classic Who Connection
Before we get started, a couple of notes from last time.
Jared wanted to know why he was being accused of screaming into a stone wheel or wax cylinder.
That’s was a running gag. I used to say “people are screaming into their iPods right now”. Until Corbin pointed out that no one had used an iPod in years now, it’s all smartphones. So it became a thing, and then I started riffing on it by saying Walkman, record player, gramophone, etc. Corbin tried it out but ended up with “stone wheel” somehow, so I saved it with wax cylinder.
So yeah, not a joke on Jared, it was actually a shot at me. 😅
Second, he was, in fact, screaming HARRIET JONES into his iPod.
BTW, I don’t care what the inventor says, it’s GIF. It stands for graphics interchange format, not jiraphic.
A resuscitated Dalek in The Power of the Daleks said “I am your servant” which is very similar to I am your soldier
The Second Doctor also said he wants to see “the final end” of the Daleks in The Evil of the Daleks
No Dalek levitation, first time since Resurrection of the Daleks
The Doctor mentions again that it is a type 40 TARDIS, he has mentioned this a number of times in Classic Who (such as The Deadly Assassin)
Back in the 2nd Doctor’s serial The Invasion, it was the Cybermen who hid a spaceship on the far side of the moon
The Doctor said that the Daleks always recognize him despite his regenerations. While we have seen this to be true since the Second Doctor, there have been instances (like the Revelation of the Daleks) where they didn’t recognize him, at least at first.
The Doctor has played the Jammy Dodger trick before. As the Second Doctor he bluffed that he would blow up Gatwick Airport with a rubber ball.
We have heard of a positronic brain in the Daleks from back with the 2nd Doctor. This was a sci-fi idea made by Isaac Asimov. This is basically an AI concept where the brain functions as a CPU and mimics consciousness and thinking.

Corbin thinks The Crack will appear in every episode and that either the Master or the New Paradigm Daleks are responsible for it.
Correct so far
Tripp thinks The Crack has something to do with Amy not remembering the Stolen Earth incident.
Tripp thinks the Star Whale is significant and we’ll see it again.
