I think I'm unique in that I actually prefer the caveman bits over the first episode, which is a bit obviously written for the stage for my liking.

But I love the cavemen episodes if only because I think cranky, useless antihero One is wonderful.

I love how Weird Susan is in the first episode. Wish we could've seen more of that in subsequent episodes, really.

Both the Doctor and Ian ask "Doctor Who?" in the second episode. Also, Susan and the Doctor both wonder about the TARDIS not changing shape.

So, are these cavemen on Earth in the distant past, or on another planet? I've never been clear about that.

I love what a total bastard One was sometimes.

OK, Susan is still a bit weird with the whole putting-a-human-skull-on-a-burning-stick thing. Awesome.

And the Doctor doesn't know how to drive. Heh.

Next time: FUCK YEAH DALEKS!

That was interesting, especially as I'd only seen partial clips of it before.

-- The Doctor left Earth with Ian and Barbara on board because he didn't want Susan to leave him! I'd never known that.

-- As I'd been warned, it's a pretty dire episode once we get to the cavemen. There's absolutely no mystery, and no clear evil to be fought. It's just, "how do we get away from the cavemen?" At least the cavemen did have some warring factions going on, which became another hallmark of the show.

-- The TARDIS materialization noise sounds exactly the same! Of course, why change perfection?

-- Just why did they individually name all the episode parts back then? Anyone know? And when did that change?
