Images from Doctor Who series 8 episode ‘Robot of Sherwood’ premiering Saturday, September 6th on BBC America!

What exactly would it mean to be a spiritual sequel to The King’s Daemons?

The King’s Demons was a Fifth Doctor serial that found the Doctor fighting against a shapeshifting robot during the reign of King John — which also happens to be when the Robin Hood stories are set. This Saturday’s episode, Robot of Sherwood, appears to feature the Twelfth Doctor encountering Robin Hood, all the while protesting that the man never really existed. That fourth picture above also seems to indicate that one or more robots will be present for the adventure — maybe even as Robin Hood himself, given the title. With all those parallels, I’ll be very much surprised if there aren’t any TKD references in RoS.

By spiritual sequel, though, I’m basically hoping that Robot of Sherwood captures the fun romp sort of feeling that The King’s Demons provided. I really recommend taking the time before this Saturday to watch the older story — at two 25-minute episodes, it’s one of the shortest serials in Classic Who, so the pacing feels a lot more like a modern episode. It’s one of my favorite serials, so I’ll definitely be talking parallels after the new episode airs.

"The man to my right started telling me about all the ways that the internet is degrading the English language. He brought up Facebook and he said: "to defriend, I mean is that a real word?”. I wanna pause on that question: what makes a word ‘real’?”- Anne Curzan, What makes a word “real”? TEDxUofM [x]

The whole TEDx talk that this is from is very much worth the watch. 

I made my students watch this TED talk! So great.
