  • Who will be the gorgons' next victim

    Eye of the Gorgon part 2 is obviously the second part of Eye of the Gorgon. The villainous gorgon and the sinister nuns have just turned Maria's dad to stone, the nuns then head out the door congratulating themselves for finding the talisman at last. Maria and Sarah Jane then head upstairs and ask Mr Smith what is wrong with Alan he replies that the transformation isn't complete yet and will take approximately 90 minutes before it is, hearing that news Maria heads over to Lavender Lawns to talk to Bea and ask her about the gorgons while Sarah Jane goes off to find Luke and Clyde who have just found a shortcut into a garden full of stone statues that was the gorgons' previous victims. Another excellent episode from Phil Ford which is up there with the best, I hope his next story (The Lost Boy) has the same success as this episode has.

    • Continuity: When Maria is saying goodbye to Chrissie, Chrissie's bag slips off her shoulder. The camera switches to a view over Chrissie's shoulder, and the strap of the bag is back on her shoulder.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Maria: She was lucky to have Edgar, wasn't she?
      Sarah Jane: I suppose she was.
      Maria: Don't you ever wish you had found someone special to share it all with?
      Sarah Jane: Oh, I think I have. For the second time.

    • Sister Helena: We will be at peace everlasting! And you shall be our Queen. To receive the Gorgon, do not look into its eyes, Miss Smith. To do so will turn you to stone.
      Sarah Jane: I'd rather be a lump of granite than bow down to that thing!

    • Alan: Pity really. I think I'd look good as one of those Greek statues. (He posses like The Thinker)
      Maria: I prefer you the way you are.

    • Luke: (after surveying a garden of statues) It's killed all these people and put them on show like trophies.
      Clyde: Or a warning, and I'm taking it. Let's get out of here.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Bea: (after Maria asks what the mirror is for) What do they teach you kids in school these days?

      This is a reference to the old mythology of the Gorgon and how it was defeated when it saw its own image reflected in a shield.

    • Henriks

      On the door of the taxi that arrives too take Chrissie back to Ivan has an advertisement for Henriks, the department store in which Rose worked when she first met The Doctor and which he subsequently blew up to destroy The Auton's.

    • Chrissie: She really is a bunny boiler this one.

      This refers to an obsessive and dangerous woman, in pursuit of a lover. The phrase derives from a famous scene in the 1987 film Fatal Attraction where a scorned woman (Glenn Close), seeking revenge on her ex-lover (Michael Douglas), boils his daughter's pet rabbit in a pot.

    • Bea: The Sultan was such a fascinating man, he'd seen a Yeti you know.

      The Yeti were seen in the Doctor Who episodes The Abominable Snowmen and The Web of Fear. Whether the Yeti the Sultan saw were the actual life forms or the robots of Padmasambhava is unknown.

    • Clyde: Alright Quasimodo, time to do your thing.

      Quasimodo was a misshapen bell-ringer in a French novel by Victor Hugo. The English title of the book was The Hunchback Of Notre Dame. The book has been made into several movies, including a Disney version in 1996.
