Doctor Who: The Krotons

The TARDIS lands on a planet with two suns, hence the Doctor's umbrella. He says it will be hot.

Jamie, Zoe, the Doctor
They see someone vaporized and soon discover that the Gonds have been under the control of the Krotons for thousands of years. The Gonds use intelligence machines, and the two smartest are given to the Krotons every so often, never to return. Yeah, they don't return because they aren't smart enough and the Krotons kill them. 

Espresso, anyone?

FYI, Krotons kind of look like Bialetti coffee makers. Zoe and the Doctor use the intelligence machines and have the intelligence the Krotons need to escape the planet. (The Krotons keep calling them "the high brains.") Will they? If you know Doctor Who, you know the answer.

I just realized that there are only three more serials to go in the Patrick Troughton era. That makes me sad. I'll miss the adventures of the 2nd Doctor, Jamie, and Zoe!


Doctor: Second
Companions: Jamie, Zoe
Episode: #47, "The Krotons," four parts
Adversary: the Krotons
Classic Lines: the Doctor: "Zoe is something of a genius, of course. It can be very irritating at times."
Tuck This Away to Impress Your Friends: Zoe has an easy time with the intelligence machine but the Doctor doesn't do as well.
Next Up: "The Seeds of Death"
