Fantastic Classic Who vibe check.
Super mega 80s Rich vs Poor, Ozone Layer Hole Earth Future Doom Preacher Goodness.
I was raised on Peter Davidson and saw Pertwee’s Buddhism and Ecology on repeat in the 80s and this was right in line.
I didn’t pick up on the green hair though. I read through 100 trash comments here and nobody mentioned it but suddenly I was like, “Oh shit, green hair. GREEN… environment.. idiot hippies engineers failing where kids will succeed….
It was perfect.
Whole thing was a perfect 1980s Doctor Who mess. I’m thinking later Peter Davidson / early curly haired annoyed guy episodes…. maybe bits of way-too-much-happening Doctor with the question mark umbrella and Ace guy.
Plus consider: When you were young: You saw shows with A VERY SPECIAL that taught you something.
Now there are kids today. SOME SHOW has to do A VERY SPECIAL something for today’s kids. Guess who’s show that is?
