Recap / Doctor Who 2012 StSS "Good as Gold"

Go To
The Eleventh Doctor has a... bad hair day? Someone's flipped the weird switch on this story.

The one that makes no sense at all.

Written by the Children of Ashdene School.

Behold, another story that was the byproduct of a screenwriting contest aimed at children. In 2012, the Eleventh Doctor and company were stuck in the Land of Fiction and made an appeal on Blue Peter for somebody to write a story for them to get out. That should be your first clue things are about to operate really high on the silly spectrum. "Good as Gold" is more of a "let the writers do as they please" story, after all, being a children's script. This is a Lighter and Softer tale, where the rules don't apply on continuity because it's taking place in a fictitious reality. Anything is possible, even things that don't make sense. Naturally, characters act even goofier than usual. That, and a Weeping Angel is thrown in to mix, with extra powers just for fun.
