I liked this one.
The doctor is definitely channelling Tom Baker, the train makes a good setting for the episode, Mac is a pillar of strength in a crisis situation and the bad guy wasn't all bad. What's not to like?

Also, I'd always guessed that Mac would be a morning person, so its nice to have it confirmed smile.gif

This one is better than I remembered to be honest.

Love the line about knowing where to find a dragon. laugh.gif

I found the story about how the doctor lost his arm to be pretty weak and unbelievable, but still gets a good vote from me.

Is it me or does Mac's voice sound lower than usual? He sounds like he had a big party the night before and had plenty of smokes and drinks or was he recovering from a sore throat or something? And it's as well with the voice overs, or did they just mess up in post-production?

And why does Andy keep reminding me of Bill of Hellfire? Each time I think it's him. I think that's what you get if you hire an actor that has sort of a resemblance even if it's just in age. Early to mid thirties.

I think the poison that was used was applied to this knife, passed to the mutton when it was cut and then activated by the wine. - MacGyver.
Sometimes you just have to die a little inside to be reborn and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you.
It's better to be a little sad than to be fake content.

It does seem more likely that he would have been in an operating theatre ... but I go by the rule "if it might have happened, let's accept it". It's only physically impossible things that make me roll my eyes.

Why do they make up their own names for the episodes instead of just using the real episode name?

By which I mean translate the real name into the German equivalent so Slow Death would be (and please forgive my German here) Langsam Tod?

The German episode title is "Halt auf freier Strecke", meaning "Stopped Between Stations".


It's maybe because "Halt auf freier Strecke" would make more sense to a German audience that "Langsam Tod" or it's based on that they are stopped in the middle of nowhere. It may also depend on how all the dialogue translated from English to German.

This is the web address for the article about this episode. Read the last couple of paragraphs. Read the whole thing. Very interesting. It may answer your question.
