    "Orphan 55" Season 12 Episode 3 'Doctor Who' Review & Recap

    "Orphan 55" Season 12 Episode 3 'Doctor Who' Review & Recap

    The Doctor, Graham, Ryan, and Yaz are taken to Tranquility Spa via a transport cube for an all-inclusive stay. They are welcomed by their customer host, Hyph3n. As Ryan retrieves a snack from a vending machine, he is infected by a Hopper virus. which the Doctor is able to extract from him. While recovering, he meets fellow guest, Bella. Meanwhile, there is a physical breach and guests are asked to assemble for a muster drill. The Doctor convinces Hyph3n to give her access to the "linen cupboard" which is actually a deadlock security room with an armory where they meet Kane. The Doctor becomes suspicious upon discovering that there is an ionic membrane needed to protect a holiday spa. The creatures that broke into the spa start killing guests. The Hopper virus had also gotten into the spa's systems disabling the transporter and security cameras.

    The remaining survivors—the spa's mechanic Nevi, his son Sylas, and an elderly couple, Vilma and Benni—meet at the "linen cupboard", but Velma notices Benni has gone missing. The Doctor builds a new ionic membrane from scratch which banishes the creatures. Now safe, Kane identifies the creatures as the local Dregs. It is revealed that the spa is a "fakation", a place designed to look like a vacation in a fabricated environment. The spa's system which tracks all the guests shows Benni outside the spa; the survivors go out to rescue him. From the vehicle, the group sees the unhabitable desolation of this orphan planet, Orphan 55. The vehicle is caught in a Dreg trap and the Dregs surround it, keeping Benni as a hostage. The group makes a run for a nearby service tunnel, but the Dregs kill Benni and Hyph3n.

    Once in the tunnel, Bella reveals herself to be Kane's daughter whom Kane neglected in order to build the spa. Bella escapes with Ryan via the transport while the others are forced to continue further along to the stairs as Dregs swarm into the tunnel. The Doctor, Yaz, and Graham discover a rusted Russian sign meaning that Orphan 55 is actually Earth, devastated by global climate change and nuclear war. Vilma sacrifices herself to give the group more time to escape. Going through a Dreg nest, the Doctor learns that the Dregs are mutated humans that survived the fallout. Kane stays behind to give the group more time to escape. Bella resumes with her plan to destroy the spa out of anger toward her mother. As the Dregs surround the spa to attack, the group fixes the transporter and safely evacuate, leaving behind Bella and Kane to fight the Dregs. Back in the TARDIS, the group despairs of Earth's future, but the Doctor reminds them it is only a possibility, but humanity can make a positive change or accept their fate like the Dregs.

    "Spyfall Part 1" Season 12 Episode 1 'Doctor Who'

    "Spyfall Part 1" Season 12 Episode 1 'Doctor Who'

    Join Zach Wilson, Dave Child, and Adrian Snow to break down the first part of the new season of Doctor Who!

    ABOUT DOCTOR WHO:
    Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television programme produced by the BBC between 1963 and the present day. The programme depicts the adventures of the Doctor, a Time Lord—a time-travelling humanoid alien. He explores the universe in his TARDIS, a sentient time-travelling space ship. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. Along with a succession of companions, the Doctor faces a variety of foes while working to save civilisations, help ordinary people, and right wrongs.

    The show is a significant part of British popular culture, and elsewhere it has become a cult television favourite. The show has influenced generations of British television professionals, many of whom grew up watching the series. The programme originally ran from 1963 to 1989. After an unsuccessful attempt to revive regular production in 1996 with a backdoor pilot in the form of a television film, the programme was relaunched in 2005 by Russell T Davies who was showrunner and head writer for the first five years of its revival, produced in-house by BBC Wales in Cardiff. The first series of the 21st century, featuring Christopher Eccleston in the title role, was produced by the BBC. Series two and three had some development money contributed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), which was credited as a co-producer. Doctor Who also spawned spin-offs in multiple media, including Torchwood (2006–11) and The Sarah Jane Adventures (2007–11), both created by Russell T Davies; K-9 (2009–10); and a single pilot episode of K-9 and Company (1981). There also have been many spoofs and cultural references of the character in other media.

Happy 55 years of Doctor Who!

Not sure about all of you, but this show has had a profound impact on my life. I was hooked from watching my first episode while making confetti cartridges for a confetti blower for my friends magic business (true story). I even started going to conventions every year on my wedding anniversary with my wife (her idea surprisingly) and meeting several former Doctors/companions and more importantly other Whovians.

After all these years of experiencing wondrous things related to Doctor Who and having many conversations about it, I find my relationship with the show undefinable. I can tell you this: One favorite thing of mine is listening to you all on this podcast. Thank you for taking the time to do this, from the bottom of my both of my hearts :)

Lsvgs1963 ,

Their lack of Whovian knowledge is hard to listen to.

I couldn’t even get through one episode of this podcast because of the frustrating lack of knowledge demonstrated during their review.

(As an example from the review of Spyfall pt. 1)

The Master has had a Tardis going back to the original series and Missy and the John Simm Master even talk about their Tardis in The Doctor Falls episode. (So no excuse by saying you never watched the original series). Also, The Master is a Time Lord, who just like the Doctor will be different from one regeneration to the next, then consider how the Master has cheated his regeneration cycles and he/she would be even more unhinged. Sacha Dhawan’s performance was absolutely brilliant!!!

I did like the personalities of the reviewers but, I just wish they had a better understanding of Doctor Who and its history. I like listening to these type of podcasts to get more insight on episodes but, can’t get past the fact that they miss on so much of the easy stuff.

Vanillamc ,

Disappointed

I don’t need my podcasts to gush over every episode, and I enjoy intellectual analysis. But the minuscule picking apart of your reviews are affecting my enjoyment of the show.
