Storyline

It's 1913 and John Smith is a middle aged teacher who works in a private school. Assisted by his doting Maid Martha who was previously employed by his father. John has his head frequently in the clouds. He has recurring dreams which he jots down details of in his journal and recounts to Joan Redfern. The schools plain, kind hearted Matron. They involve an alien time traveler who calls himself the Doctor who journey's through time and space in a blue box, picking up numerous companions along the way. But it all really just the dream. And is there more to Martha's concerns over Mr. Smith than just mere infatuation? As John and Joan's feelings become more and more apparent. Events begin to take another twist. When a mysterious, other worldly family with an army of animated scarecrows make their presence known. Written by Robert McElwaine

Quotes

Rocastle: You need to be better than the best. Those targets are tribesmen from the dark continent.
Tim Latimer: That's exactly the problem, sir. They only have spears.
Rocastle: Oh dear me. Latimer takes it upon himself to make us realize how wrong we all are. I hope, Latimer, that one day you may have a just and proper war in which to prove yourself.

The first of the worst
28 September 2011 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

This is the first of the two worst episodes in the history (yes, history) of Doctor Who. It plays out from beginning to end like horrible fan fiction of the worst kind. You know, the kind written by a person who just really wants the main character (the Doctor of course) to fall in love with them. From illogical plot lines to retarded romances and soap opera melodrama, this pair of episodes has it all. Just don't be surprised when the thief of a child turns out to be a the hero and Martha gets treated like crap (and not apologized to either), and the idiot school nurse turns out to be the big victim. Ugg the whole thing made me want to puke.
