Classic Rewatch: The Mind Robber

The Mind Robber

Let us tell you a story. Once, in a far-off land, many, many years apart from the time we live now, three dear friends went on an adventure. This was not your usual storybook adventure, where brave souls battled fearsome monsters, rescuing…oh, wait, it sort of is that sort of adventure. Well, it definitely didn’t have traps and snares, puzzles of wit designed to test our heroes’ intellect as well as physical…hmm. It has that, too. Okay, it certainly wasn’t a journey within the mind, testing the boundaries of what was real, and what was illusion…huh? That, too? Darn. I guess it has just about everything except a bedazzled catsuit, two men in one kilt, and a fake German bodybuilder. Oh, for crying out loud…

This week, Keir and Haley revel in the fun of the Second Doctor literary adventure, “The Mind Robber”. As writer Peter Ling’s first attempt at science fiction, it is a mad, labyrinthine sort of ‘Doctor Through the Looking Glass’, with every sort of fictional component thrown in to trip up our Time Lord and his exceptional companions, Jamie and Zoe. Wind up your toy soldiers and step into the white mist, because things are about to be taken…literally.

  1. I’m sure you know by now, Space is getting Class on the same night it drops in the U.K. In addition I asked folks should they incorporate some of the comic book elements into the show, like you talked about Big Finish, which I also enjoy a lot.
