It’s time again for another episode of Shagbottom Theater!
Welcome to the new year, and here is hoping that it will bring us better days. I’m sure you agree: a balance must be struck. We’ve had a string of terrible years and it would not be cosmically fair to have another–or would it? After all, it’s all random, isn’t it? There’s nothing greater pushing on the universe?
Regardless, sometimes you just want a hero to show up and save the day. Not quite sure what that would even look like. However, I know it definitely isn’t coming from a political sphere. Too many are content to have bad leadership as long as it is under their particular team colors.
This is why I thought a Doctor episode would be nice to delve into. Fionn agreed to becoming Shagbottom Who easily. He loves the 10th doctor, and feels that Mr. Tennant’s portrayal is pretty close in energy to Doctor #4, my favorite. The Doctor embodies the goodness we need right now: honest goodness–fighting to do what is right, not what will line one’s pockets. Moreover, this particular episode is appropriate due to its title: Voyage of the Damned. This was a nod to the 1976 Titanic film. With COVID having destroyed so many lives, it feels like we are on the planet Titanic, just waiting to go under.
All right! I’ll stop being morose. Let’s take a look at the snippet Fionn has prepared for us. I think you’ll agree this is one of the best moments in the series.
The Doctor: I’m the Doctor. I’m a Time Lord. I’m from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. I’m nine hundred and three years old and I’m the man who’s going to save your lives and all six billion people on the planet below. You got a problem with that?
