Classic Rewatch: The Brain of Morbius

Perhaps it was the lasting words of (not quite) philosopher Brian Johnson from the (not exactly) famed British think tank AC/DC, who quoted, “Who made who? / Who turned the screw?” The fact remains, there are moments where even the most exalted intellects have their thoughts and actions called into question, be it by their peers, themselves, or one claiming to be their greater. Perhaps if he were keeping an evil genius Time Lord’s spleen in a jar, and lived with that for a few decades instead of the maniacal brain, he might not have gotten into the mess he did. Guess that would have made for a pretty squicky dialogue exchange, however.

This week, Jeremy Radick calls in once again to join us for a lovely stroll through a dark and sinister laboratory, as “The Brain of Morbius” taunts us into action. We collectively adore the set design and visual tone, Jeremy holds the banner high for Philip Madoc (and rightfully so), and we take the briefest of seconds to wonder what Tom Baker would look like in a wrestling unitard. Go ahead. Let that image wash over you. We also find appreciation for “Daredevil” Sarah Jane, verify that the “five second rule” apparently doesn’t apply to brains, and that Condo and Mungo were likely separated at birth.

EXTRA: We pick Jeremy’s brain (sorry, couldn’t help it) about his opinions on what we know thus far about Series 11!
