Ah, you're probably right on that.
Hadn't we already seen her in that suit at least once before?
At Demons Run perhaps?
My favorite moment:
" I was spent hell of a long time trying to get a gobby Australian to Heathrow airport. " The only companion I actually met.
She was living in Victorian England as a nanny, so she probably posed for the photo. The picture in the sub was posed, too. Just because we didn't see them take it doesn't mean someone don't. The 1970s photo is more puzzling.
Edit to add: The composition of the 1970s shot seems off, but I do remember a camera in large usage in that episode to "catch" the "ghost."
The moves, although speeded Matrix like, were definitely Emma Peel. The only thing missing was the hair fling.
Can you explain? I figured it was either a reference to the original run, which I haven't seen much of, or that it was a UK pop culture reference I didn't pick up on.
Gobby Australian: Tegan Jovanka (companion to Dr #5) played by Janet Fielding.
Classic Episode: Time Flight.
Good episode. No one has mentioned the wonderful and creative 'back story' scene
I enjoyed it, for many of the reasons listed above (especially the Heathrow reference)... But even more so because it was back to a normal pacing. Something about the more recent episodes being 41 minutes of mystery being uncovered, and a 45 seconds resolution via deus ex, hasn't been thrilling me.
This was much more satisfying for that reason alone.
If you skip commercials, you missed them talking about this. We stopped when we saw they were talking about the show. That said, I have/had no idea who Diana Riggs was so it didn't mean much to me.
Oh my. How did I not get that...?
<sigh> Kids today...
I knew it had to be a GPS company, but I could not think of Tom-Tom for a couple of minutes. Damn CRS!
Yes - as mentioned eight posts before yours.
As pteronaut explained, Tegan who was a companion through the Baker/Davidon regen. I love the casual reminders of what the Doctor has been through this past 50 years.
That's OK, I didn't get either reference!!!
Thanks. I was on percoset.
I was waiting for his name to be Gar Min or Mag Ellen, or some play on those names, but when he said Thomas Thomas, it zoomed right over my head.
Or is that Moozed?
Count me in as one who picked up the GPS behavior, but missed the naming joke too. I knew there was something about the repeating name that tied to GPS, but could not come up with it. Must be because I don't own one except the one built in to my car that I never use and google maps on my phone that I rarely use as a navigation aid.
Well I'm delighted to have picked up on a joke that many in this crowd missed. It doesn't happen much with this observant audience.
Is Tom Tom more common in Europe than here? Most people around here seem to have Garmin (or used to, before the ubiquity of Google nav).
Tom-tom is a pretty big name here as well as in Europe. I had an older one in the wife's car until I got a vehicle with built-in nav and gave her my Garmin.
We both got the joke immediately.
I use a Magellan GPS, but got the TomTom reference immediately, my wife missed it until I mentioned it
I thought the name was unusual, and thought it was an obscure reference to an old Dr. Who character. It went right over my head.
