Doctor Who - S3E6
#12 - The Lazarus Experiment
7.40
Season 3 - Episode 6

Location: London Date: 2008 Enemy: Professor Lazarus It looks as though Martha's odyssey is coming to an end when the Doctor drops her home, even landing the Tardis inside her lounge. But then a TV news report tickles the insatiable curiosity of our gallivanting Gallifreyan, and they're off again. So we're treated to the unusual sight of the Doc in a DJ as he escorts a glammed-up Martha to the launch of a scientific breakthrough: an eternal youth machine created by an elderly professor, Richard Lazarus. As with all weird science, the side effects are severe, but this is a very extreme case (and no, it's not suitable for tots). Doctor Who continues its game of spot the homage. Tonight's story is an enjoyable synthesis of She, The Fly and The Quatermass Experiment - even down to the final battle in a London cathedral. But despite some charming interplay between the two leads and an excellent turn from Mark Gatiss as the young and old professor, The Lazarus Experiment is a pretty conventional runaround, though the nightmarish Identikit creature is superbly realised and dedicated Whovians can look out for a "reverse the polarity" reference.

Complete agree about it being the best thing on TV :D

I gave DW a ten as rating because it's still my favorite show and because i feel very loyal to it. The show got all my love with its first 4 series, thanks to Eccleston and Tennant as doctors, and RTD as showrunner. However, watching Moffat's era to me felt like one of those old [bad] habits you can't quite 'get rid of' even if you wanted. I know many people might think 'But if you don't like it so much right now, why don't you just quit?' My answer would be: because DW isn't Moffat's show [lol someone should tell him that], it belongs to us fans. It's much larger than his incredibly annoying, self-indulgent, irritating storylines that have been ruining the show since series 6. I enjoyed s8 more than his other series simply because of Capaldi's good performance and the incredible Jenna, but yet it's not enough for me to fully enjoy it as i used to. My only hope is that Moffat leaves the show in hands of someone who would know how to write proper storylines without plot holes/continuity errors/sexism, and bring it to its former glory. And i hope that's going to be soon.

Love this show but Season 11 was terrible. And I thought Season 10 was bad. It looks like every new season, for the past couple of seasons, the show just gets worst & worst. Wish they would go back to the style of first 7 seasons of the reboot. Or just completely reboot this show once again.

Doctor Who has the been the stable of good British TV for the past 50 years and keeps getting better, this of course is down to the writers and of course writer / executive producer Stephen Moffat who since 2004 has been giving us a darker, scarier (Blink) episodes and Russell T Davis (the man who brought back the Doctor in 2005). Amazing visual effects and great performances from Billy Piper, David Tennant, Jenna Coleman, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi. You can see why Doctor Who is loved around the globe.

The new doctors sucks ass (or the writers are garbage). Great idea to get a female lead but terrible execution. Just wait for the next doctor...90% of the episodes under the current doctor is mostly about lecturing you, SJW, METOO movement, etc. You’re better off reading a good book instead of wasting your time on this garbage.

The more antique, loved and best show who teach people great lessons at every single episode. Doctor Who is the most beautiful work and I'll always be grateful for this show!!! (Reviewing it for the second time)

Without doubt, my favorite tv show of all time, [spoiler]Tennant ;-; i miss you senpai[/spoiler]

Basically... RUN!

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
