Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    Hmmm… I've just watched this and had a completely different take.

    I did find it funny. I thought this was one of the first episodes where Hartnell seems to be genuinely enjoying himself, which I found magnetic, and increased my own amusement. I was also deeply concerned for Ian & Barbara in a way that I rarely am with companions.

    Nero is a farce here, but his first appearance is truly menacing, and the Doctor's dealing with him is great. The chasing around the halls gets stale quickly, but remains memorable.

    Really, this one seems to speak to a lot of the sensibilities of the modern series, and would be an episode I'd probably show a newbie if trying to show them the merits of the Original Doctor.

    Or maybe I'm just a sucker for a buddy comedy.
