Gareth on Pip & Jane

Gareth likes a bit of Pip & Jane.

Philip "Pip-pip" Baker and Jane Baker (now deceased and yet somehow still a threat to the programme's future) were a husband-and-wife writing team professionally known as "Pip and Jane Baker" who are primarily known for their downright disastrous contributions to classic Doctor Who.

They invented the Rani and were both related to Tom and Colin Baker despite what they tell us. They wrote only four stories for the show, yet they remain a deeply-felt scar on the fandom even today:

Reception Edit

All four were so bad that they very nearly completely ruined the show forever. I don't think anyone likes these stories even a little bit (except me) and if they do they're goddamn right to be afraid to mention so in public lest they be held up to ridicule. Seriously, these were just about the nadir of the show’s deep slide down into its Mariana Trench of quality in the 1980s, some of the worst Doctor Who ever made. There have been Doctor Who coloring books for the mentally-handicapped that were better.

The Return of the Rani Edit

If the Rani ever does come back, they'd probably be the ones to do it, with Pip-pip collaborating with his deceased wife through some sort of ghostly seance to channel their special brand of crap from beyond the grave.

Next time you think you hate Moffat, give these episodes a spin and relax.
