Day 7 – ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2022

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

It’s Day 7 of ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2022.

Let’s see how Tom Baker’s Doctor, Sarah Jane and Harry cope aboard the Ark in Space! 🙂

It’s amazing how the Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane and Harry coped with recovering from oxygen starvation aboard the Ark, also known as the Nerva Beacon. Mind you, Sarah Jane suffered the worst, as the Doctor and Harry were getting her onto a bio-bed in order to recover and regain her senses. 🙂

It’s nice to see how the Doctor and Harry interacted with each other throughout this story, especially when elements of a mystery were being uncovered aboard the Beacon. I like that Harry shared his observations with the Doctor and that he’s not simply reduced to an idiot or an ‘imbecile’ in the story.

When Harry checked on Sarah Jane as she came round, it was funny when she said she’d spit in his eye if he called her ‘old girl’ again. 😀 Not that stopped him, though he did call her ‘old thing’ in ‘The Sontaran Experiment’. It’s clear that Elisabeth Sladen and Ian Marter enjoyed working together here.

It was funny when the Doctor and Harry suggested Sarah Jane should have some brandy to help her to get better and she went, “Oh, I hate brandy!” I don’t blame you, Sarah Jane. I wouldn’t fancy brandy either. Mind you, is the brandy from the TARDIS from the same bottle used in ‘Twice Upon A Time’?

It became tense when the Doctor and Harry had to duck and get under cover when they were being fired upon by an electrical beam from a huge camera lens. 😀 It also became tense when Sarah Jane was transported from her bio-bed to someplace else aboard the Beacon before being put into a deep sleep.

Thanks for watching and reading!
