The most recent episode of Doctor Who has raised a serious question here at the WhatCulture! offices, which is better: Dinosaurs on a Spaceship (DOAS) or Snakes on a Plane (SOAP)? Using a completely unbiased and scientific method, the crack team of me will determine which is better, DOAS or SOAP, based on a cumulative score in three areas: Cast, Creatures and Curses.

Cast

DOAS: The Doctor, Nefertiti, Hunter Guy, Amy Pond, Rory Pond and Danish catering officer Olaf Petersen. SOAP: Samuel €œMother F***€™€ Jackson Sam and The Doctor cancel one another out. Nefertiti & Hunter Guy are ho-hum, so no score. Amy Pond and Rory Pond are a big negative, which drags DOAS into the red. Amy for trying to slide into the main character slot, usurping The Doctor. Rory because he€™s a bumbling vagina. The series can€™t get rid of them fast enough. Luckily Olaf Petersen saves the day. Those of you awesome enough to get the reference understand why. Score: 1 Point DOAS

Creatures

DOAS: Dinosaurs - Triceratops, raptors, pterodactyls, ankylosaurus. SOAP: Snakes. Although Dr. Jones vehemently disagrees with me, dinosaurs are the far greater of the reptilian adversaries in these two shows. That€™s even taking into account that triceratops are nothing more than gigantic puppy dogs with the instinctual ability to fetch. That is, so long as the ball has grass smell. Score: 1 Point DOAS

Curses

DOAS: None SOAP: None Interestingly enough, whereas neither DOAS nor SOAP have a curse, The Asylum has a film, Snakes on a Train (SOAT), a mockbuster which actually beat SOAP to release, does have an ancient Mayan curse which is the impetus for the story. I€™m not really giving anything away that the title of the film doesn€™t. Even if I did, if you€™ve ever watched an Asylum film you know there€™s nothing to give away. Score: 1 Point SOAT. Considering it wasn€™t part of the competition, who cares. Which brings us to the result. Assuming my math is correct, it looks like DOAS, with 2 points, is the winner. Amazing, really, considering the Doctor didn€™t use the magical sonic screwdriver to rig the voting. Or did he? Next €œWhich is Better€ Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter go head to head in a death-match battle royal. Don€™t miss it!
