Context Recap / EighthDoctorAdventuresKursaal

Go To

1The Doctor and Sam, looking for a break from saving the universe, land on Kursaal, planet of the theme parks. Unfortunately, as usual, they land five years too early, while the parks are still being built (causing Sam to become quite sulky). The Doctor insists that they go exploring, as usual, and they find an archeological dig... where all but two of the archaeologists have been killed.²²The Doctor passes himself and Sam off as a pathologist and nurse intern respectively, and begins to help the investigation into the murders. They soon discover that the history of Kursaal is not quite what it seems, and its ancient species, the Jax, are rising once again.²²!! Tropes present in ''Kursaal'' include:²²* AmusementParkOfDoom: Kursaal, despite its security forces' best efforts.²* EyeColourChange: Sam's eyes turn green from her usual blue when she's possessed by the Jax.²* FateWorseThanDeath: The Doctor says that being taken over by the Jax would be this for Sam.²* GoodThingYouCanHeal: As usual, the Doctor gets injured - this time, his fingers are smashed with an axe. He, as usual, heals between books.²* MindControlEyes: Sam's turn from green to blue when she's possessed by the Jax.²* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Only the Jax drones behave like ordinary werewolves. The real Jax is a sentient virus that uses the light of the full moon to take full control of its host.²* TheSlowPath: Kadjik is very surprised to see that the Doctor and Sam haven't aged in 15 years.²* TheVirus: The Jax.²* WeatherControlMachine: How they keep the theme park from being hit by the storms that are normal on Saturnia Regna.
