Doctor Who, You've Got Lunch!

Last summer, I was inspired by my amazing Bento bloggers and Friends, to follow a fabulous long time TV series about an adventure in space and time, Doctor Who. Since it was out of season then, I bought a Netflix subscription to catch up just before the current series premiere on Fall. Christopher Eccleston, the 9th Doctor and the next Thor, is my favorite by far.  He is  my first doctor encounter so he holds a special place in my heart. I love him because he has an incredible amount of humor that makes the whole show enjoyable to watch.  My bento lunch for this hop goes back from the 2005 first season episode 2: The End of the World.

As part of the Bento Bloggers and Friends Group, we have decided that a blog hop would be appropriate to welcome the Season Premiere of Doctor Who on BBC. 
In this episode, the Doctor takes Rose to the year 5B where they land on a space station which is orbiting the Earth and observing its destruction by the expanding Sun.  Among the elite alien guests assembled to watch the phenomenon is Lady Cassandra (featured below),
who takes pride in being the last pure human, though she has received many operations that have altered her image.  It is discovered that Cassandra, to receive money for her many operations, plans to let the guests die and then profit from the stock increases of their competitors. She departs and brings down the shields, causing harmful direct radiation to penetrate the station.
The Doctor manages to reactivate the system and save Rose, after which he brings Cassandra back and she ruptures as she has not been moisturized.  Above is a video clip how she was defeated by the Doctor.
The Mandarin oranges serve as Lady Cassandra's brain,
which is responsible for her return in "New Earth".
Cassandra returned in "New Earth," which took place 23 years after.  "The End of the World." Her brain had indeed survived. Her eyes had been retrieved and she was repaired with extra skin taken from back of her previous body.  She was hiding in the basement of the hospital run by the Sisters of Plenitude, and tended to by a devoted forced-growth clone named Chip.

I hope you've enjoyed this post.
