There's been an awakening...
The Phallus... Err I mean, Malus.

Wake me up inside was the second story of Season 21 of a show that had already died three seasons before.


It featured the Face of Boe's Nazi brother living inside Amelia Pond's crack, endangering the Doctor with a smoke machine and making dudes steal Tegan's clothes. As usual, Turlough does jack shite.


It's actually quite comfy, one of the less shitely written Fifth Doctor stories. Why this is considered a pointless forgettable two parter yet The Sontaran Experiment is well loved is beyond me.


It was released to DVD in 2011 in a boxset with The Gunfighters... for some reason...
