Anji has just had the worst week of her life. She should be back at her desk, not travelling through time and space in a police box.
The Eighth Doctor is supposed to be taking her home, so why are there dinosaurs outside? The Doctor doesn’t seem to know either, or else he surely would have mentioned the homicidal princesses, teen terrorists and mad robots?
One thing is certain: Anji is never going to complain about Monday mornings in the office again.
An adventure featuring the Eighth Doctor as played by Paul McGann and his companions Fitz and Anji
- EarthWorld was the forty-third release in the BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures series. It was written by Jacqueline Rayner. It featured the Eighth Doctor, Fitz Kreiner and Anji Kapoor.
- At first the Doctor thinks they may be on a parallel world. He seems to consider this a normal occurrence.
- The Eighth Doctor carried elastoplast with him.
- The EarthWorld guidebook claims herbivores will eat you if your name is “Herb.”
- Anji compares the Doctor and Fitz to characters from The Jungle Book.
- At Fitz’s fifth birthday party, Spam sandwiches were served.
- The Doctor describes a planet which has a burnt orange sky and silver trees, but forgets about it when Anji asks if it was his home planet.
- The Doctor remembers a place where the night sky was burnt orange and the tree leaves were silver. This is almost exactly Susan’s description of her home from The Sensorites.
