The Fourth Doctor era begins properly as we head off into the far future for The Ark in Space! It’s the first story Produced by the legendary Phillip Hinchcliffe, meaning that the iconic Hinchcliffe/Holmes production team is now fully in place, and they're taking us to a space station in the far future where the future of humanity is at stake – what could possibly go wrong? Aside from the somewhat notorious bubble-wrap SFX, of course…   Along the way, Julie questions Sarah’s use of an oil lamp vs. a torch, Reilly draws parallels to the work of David Cronenburg, Anthony leans into British stereotypes, and Don imagines Harry Sullivan being played by Hugh Laurie. The entire team discusses how amazing and atmospheric the sets are, proving that brightly lit sets can work well!   If you would like to watch along with us, this serial is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

It’s that point of our journey where we finally have reached the legendary Tom Baker, as we kick-off his era with Robot! But will his debut live up to expectations? We also say a final “goodbye” to Producer Barry Letts and his love of bad CSO, and former Script Editor Terrance Dicks signs-off with the script. Listen in as we re-tread some of the UNIT-era tropes to welcome our new Doctor!   Along the way, Don admires the Brigadier’s snark, Reilly talks about the jarring use of videotape for location shooting, Julie accuses Anthony of worrying too much, and Anthony in turn accuses her of sounding like his mother. The entire crew talks about how terrible the SRS are at thinking through their nefarious plans.   If you would like to watch along with us, this serial is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

We’re back to stretch out the Pertwee era for just one more episode, as our good friend R. Alan Siler joins the show to interview our regular cast about the entirety of the Pertwee era – the good, the bad, and the outright Masterful! Join us as we meander through a conversation about the joys of Delgado and UNIT, the best supporting characters, the pitfalls of bad CSO and overuse of synthesizers, and a dissection of the development of the Third Doctor.   Along the way, Don ponders whether the Master cooked fish in the UNIT microwave, Anthony asks whether anyone on the Production Team actually knew any women, Julie manages to avoid mentioning Benton while the crew talk about UNIT (until prompted, at least), Alan draws parallels between the development of the Third and Twelfth Doctors, and Reilly issues a plea for Pertwee’s interview of Shatner to be re-uploaded to the internet. The crew once again wraps things up with a game of snog, marry, exterminate – with hilarious consequences!   Alan can also be found in the following places: Modern Musicology Podcast (https://bit.ly/3CA33c1) Earth Station Trek Podcast (https://bit.ly/3KsflFA) Kozmic Press (https://kozmicpress.com/)   Other media mentioned in this episode: Star Trek: The Original Series: The Complete Series (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3aifha7 | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/2YtSYvx) Moonbase 3 (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3xdCVRm | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/3Mm13Fv) Martin Scorsese’s After Hours (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3wBacVY | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/3QWdiMa) The X Files: The Complete Series (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3oR88FY | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/3BqRkZY) Family Guy (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3AtKMuf | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/3pLwxMz) The James Bond Collection (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3FWn6kg | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/3DQB4lR) Big Finish’s Peladon boxset (BigFinish.com: https://bit.ly/3KvEu1Z)   Finally, you can also follow us and interact with us on various forms of social media - Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Anthony and Julie get together for our Season 11 Big Finish bonus episode, as they are off to Hong Kong in an alternative universe to discuss Sympathy for the Devil from the Doctor Who: Unbound range! This episode was recorded before the news broke of the sad passing of David Warner, and is dedicated to his memory. He was an amazing actor, and will be missed by so, so many people. Our thoughts continue to be with his friends and family.   Along the way, Julie finds herself thinking that there’s something more to the Buddhist Abbott than meets the eye (or ear?), and Anthony wonders what happened to the other mind parasites that arrived on Earth in the regular Doctor Who universe. They both try to make sense of which of the Master’s plots would’ve happened without the Doctor stopping what happened in The Mind of Evil.   If you would like to listen along with us, you can find this story at BigFinish.com (https://bit.ly/3A7iK7O).   Other media mentioned in this episode: Russell T.

Once again, we have reached the end of another season, so join us as we look back on the entirety of Season 11. From the highs of Benton punching a General in Invasion of the Dinosaurs, to the lows of… well, the entirety of The Monster of Peladon, we talk about it all with our usual blend of awards, a look back on our metrics and scores from the season, and questions from our social media followers. It’s definitely an interesting one – but what about this season is particularly “Self-Indulgent and Unnecessary?”   Along the way, Julie continues her Benton love, Reilly explains why John Dearth as Lupton is the Best Supporting Actor, Anthony does his best Neska impression (and is still somehow does a better job of conveying emotion than Jenny Laird), and Don confesses his bizarre love of the cliffhanger from Part Three of Death to the Daleks. The entire crew continue to express their disdain for the twelve-and-a-half minute chase scene from Planet of the Spiders.   Other media mentioned in this episode: The Munsters: The Complete Series (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3zUF8kT | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/3QHwhK1) The Beverly Hillbillies: The Complete Seasons 1-5 (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3diqADM | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/3JS0oMq)   Finally, you can also follow us and interact with us on various forms of social media - Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

This episode, the Watchers return to Metebelis III as they exasperatedly take on the final Pertwee serial with Planet of the Spiders. Complete with a former salesman plotting revenge through the accumulation of power while at a Buddhist retreat (wut?) and a mindlessly self-indulgent chase scene, is this the story that will finally break the Watchers (or just Reilly)?   Along the way, Anthony struggles to make sense of the Spiders’ power structure, Julie picks up on one particular element inspiring a major device for 2008’s Series 4 episode Turn Left, Don rages at the brazen attempt to add to canon for no good reason, and Reilly finds Lupton’s plan so utterly baffling. The entire crew despairs over the mindless self-indulgence that is the Part Two chase scene.   If you would like to watch along with us, this serial is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

We’re heading back to Peladon for the penultimate serial of the Pertwee era, where a new painfully unassertive monarch has to deal with an uppity religious advisor, rumours of their God being unhappy, difficulty with members of the Galactic Federation, and a minor miner rebellion thrown in for good effect. All stretched out to six episodes, rather than four! Dear god. At least it’ll make for an entertaining conversation!   Along the way, Reilly theorizes that the Doctor deliberately dressed in green, as he was expecting to see Alpha Centauri again, Julie is delighted that someone is finally calling out the Doctor on his incessant name-dropping, Don does his best Alpha Centauri impression, and Anthony finds himself wishing that this was an out-and-out comedy. The entire team discusses how absolutely bonkers Ettis is as a character.   If you would like to watch along with us, this serial is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

Terry Nation is BACK with Death to the Daleks, so we have to discuss it in our latest podcast episode, The C-Team Daleks, in which we attempt to answer the ultimate question – “Is Terry Nation taking the piss?” Additional questions asked include “why can’t he write for women?” and “is this bad, or is this good?” Listen in to hear us fail to definitively answer any of these questions!   During the episode, Julie questions the choice of musical theme for the Daleks, Anthony appreciates Michael Briant’s moments of enjoyably heavy-handed direction, Reilly discovers that he’s only grossed out by visuals and not sound, and Don compares Terry Nation to a toy collector. The entire team debates the existence of a character called Jack (#JusticeForJack).   If you would like to watch along with us, this serial is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

Kklak! It’s the Annual Malcolm Hulke Lizard Extravaganza®, as we bang-a-gong for the children of the revolution as we take on T. Rexes in Invasion of the Dinosaurs! The Doctor and Sarah return to London, only to be confronted by a conspiracy to which almost everyone is involved, and some of Ray Harryhausen’s cast-offs. Ah well, you can’t win ‘em all.   Over the course of the episode, Reilly explains his suspicions on how Spielberg may have approached this as the low water mark for the effects of Jurassic Park, Anthony compares the colour and the black & white versions of Part One, Don theorises that Benton is the only sane member of UNIT at this point, and Julie is happy that Benton is finally allowed to have some tea. The entire crew take turns at comparing deserted London to various horror movies.     If you would like to watch along with us, this serial is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

It’s a fresh start as we kick off Season 11 with Robert Holmes’ excellent The Time Warrior, in which we say “hello!” to both the legendary Sarah Jane Smith and the iconic monsters known as the Sontarans! Add into the mix some comedy Saxons, some pathetic Normans, and plenty of sci-fi elements, and we’re onto a winner. Maybe. You’ll have to listen to find out what we actually think of this one!   Over the course of the episode, Anthony finds himself amused by Lynx not knowing what a woman is, Don finds himself thinking of ways to add more suspense to the plot, Julie complains at the length of time it takes to get a woman on screen (9 mins and 34 seconds), and Reilly questions some of the directing. The entire crew find themselves once again questioning the Brigadier’s sanity.     If you would like to watch along with us, this serial is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

It’s time for another season retrospective, as we look back on the entirety of Season 10! And what a season it’s been – all three Doctors, an attempt at a 12-part Dalek epic, giant maggots in an abandoned mine in South Wales, and some dishrags. Well, that last one shows that you can’t win ‘em all! Still, the Pertwee era is absolutely flying by – we can’t believe that we’ve only got one more season to go!   Over the course of the episode, Julie riles against all forms of bureaucracy, Don tries to sneak in a Big Finish reference into the awards, Anthony gets mad about CSO, and Reilly figures out the optimal drink and monster pairing. Finally, the entire crew contemplate a potential Blake’s 7 spin-off of the podcast.     If you would like to watch along with us, the whole season is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

It’s time for a bonus episode, in which all four of us are joined by our good friend Naomi (aka @thewhovian_gal on Instagram), as we discuss the Season 10-adjacent Big Finish adventure The Scorchies! Join us as we talk about one of the most weird and bonkers stories to date! Oh, and did we mention that this is Don’s first Big Finish experience? Because it’s Don’s first Big Finish experience!   Along the way, Don focuses on Scorchies’ the absurdly dark back story, Naomi and Julie bond over their mutual love of Sergeant Benton (and dislike of Captain Yates), Reilly questions the mechanics behind the reversal of reversing the polarity of the neutron flow, and Anthony embarrassingly confuses two of his co-hosts. The entire crew try to figure out which Scorchie is which, and which ones are their favourites (and Reilly gets a little upset at Julie’s omission of Cool Cat).   If you would like to listen along with us, you can find this story at BigFinish.com (https://bit.ly/37Os0Uo).   Other media mentioned in this episode: The Muppet Show: Seasons 1-3 (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3FHjjrk | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/38u22Wj) Babe (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3wa8fzY | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/3LdW7lC) The Clangers: Complete Series (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/332oBPv | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/3K5xVCz) Delia Smith – Ultimate Delia (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3L6ZbA0 | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/38qzsVO) Space: 1999: The Complete Series (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3pbTv08 | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/3p7W43u) Sesame Street: 50 Years and Counting (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/39eNnhT | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/3Le1C3Q) Muppet Babies: Time to Play!

This episode, we’re off to the valleys to fight against greedy corporations, green slime, and giant maggots, for the most Welsh Doctor Who story of all time, as we discuss the one and only The Green Death! Join us as we talk stereotypes, hippies, and charismatic computers, and (with sorrow) say goodbye to a companion that we have really grown to love.   Over the course of the episode, Anthony brings out the Welsh side of his heritage, Don imagines a version of this story where BOSS was a computerized version of Tobias Vaughn, Julie finds herself disappointed at seeing the Brigadier in a suit, and Reilly wonders whether the loudness of the Doctor’s plaid killed the giant fly. The entire crew fall in love with the Doctor’s various disguises in this serial.     If you would like to watch along with us, this story is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

It’s Terry Nation’s Greatest Hits as we discuss Planet of the Daleks – a story where he appears to have put all of his favourite past plot points in a hat, drawn them out at random, and attempted to make a coherent story out of the results! Join us as we keep track of the TerryTropes and discuss, among other things, whether or not this makes for a good story.   Over the course of the episode, Reilly expresses the opinion that this is one of the most disgusting Doctor Who serials we’ve covered to date, Julie gets excited about woodwind, Anthony tries to argue that there is a reasonable (albeit poorly represented) connection with Frontier in Space, and Don digs out Terry Nation’s original titles for each individual episode. The entire cast discuss how frustrating Vaber’s general anger issues are.   If you would like to watch along with us, this story is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

This episode, we go on a tour of the galaxy’s finest jail cells, featuring appearances from the Master! Ogrons! A few Daleks! Draconians! And future humanity’s most dictatorial regime to date! It’s a rather grim vision of the future in Frontier in Space! Join us as we keep track of the number of times that the Doctor and Jo are incarcerated, and generally despair at how so many people *on both sides* repeatedly ignore what they’re trying to say.   Over the course of the episode, Don advances his theories about the Third Doctor’s anecdotes being most nonsense, Anthony denies the possibility that General Williams could be his future descendant, Julie praises Jo’s choice of (sensible) outfit, and Reilly dreams of seeing the Ogron version of The Office! The entire crew find themselves enamoured with the world building presented in the story.   If you would like to watch along with us, this story is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

It’s an unusually low-key story for the Pertwee era, as we handle the classic dual menace of bureaucracy and sock puppets in Carnival of Monsters! Join us as we talk budget serials, grey worlds, Holmesian double acts, monster cameos, and the Doctor’s long-awaited return to regular space-and-time adventuring!   Over the course of the episode, Anthony finds himself alone in appreciating the bureaucrats of the serial, Julie continues to find herself please with the direction of the scores this season, Reilly enthuses over the monster design, and Don dreams of re-editing the entire serial. The entire crew find themselves disappointed at the general lack of monsters promised by the story’s title.   If you would like to watch along with us, this story is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

We’re kicking off Season 10 of Doctor Who in style as our two past stars of the show, Patrick Troughton and William Hartnell, team up with Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor to defeat a truly galactic threat in The Three Doctors! Join us as we talk about this truly special union, the impact it has on our current cast, and whether or not the Brigadier goes a bit bonkers as a result of this serial…   Over the course of the episode, Don ponders whether this serial was sponsored by Clearasil, Reilly re-envisions the fight between the Doctor and Omega as a WWE smackdown-type event, Anthony talks about the fan theory of Season 6B, and Julie finds herself appalled at the prospect of a romantic liaison between her beloved Jamie and Jo. The entire crew discusses whether the Brigadier and Sergeant Benton now count as full-blown companions after travelling in the TARDIS this serial.   If you would like to watch along with us, this story is available for streaming at both Britbox US (https://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (https://www.britbox.co.uk).

It’s the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension Season 9 Retrospective Extravaganza!

It’s our Season 9 Big Finish bonus episode, as Anthony and Julie are joined by Reilly for his first Big Finish experience with a tale featuring spycraft, Nazis, and the occult as we discuss Operation: Hellfire, from The Third Doctor Adventures, Volume 6.   Along the way, Julie gets frustrated at Jo’s inability to adequately go undercover, Reilly realizes that he’s a prime candidate for occult sacrifice, and Anthony once again expresses his distaste for the phrase “wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey.” All three of us have a robust discussion on how awful the Time Lords are, and particularly the one that appears in this story.   If you would like to listen along with us, you can find this story as part of The Third Doctor Adventures, Volume 6 box set (along with Poison of the Daleks) at BigFinish.com (https://bit.ly/3og7fWq).   Other media mentioned in this episode: The Avengers – Complete Collection (tv show) (Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3B828eR | Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/3B0ChoS) Indiana Jones – The Complete Collection (inc.

It’s another season finale as everyone’s favourite moustache-twirling renegade Time Lord returns to unleash the power of Kronos on the universe. Oh, and cause a headache for everyone across the fandom the destruction of Atlantis for the third(?) time. Join us as we discuss what is possibly the thirstiest Doctor Who story to date in The Time Monster!   Over the course of the episode, Julie appreciates Ruth’s upfront-and-centre feminism, Don expresses his horror over the new TARDIS set, Reilly talks about the Master’s love of old administrators, and Anthony ponders whether Dudders upped his game to avoid being permanently replaced. The entire crew question the wisdom of the design of the Doctor’s rather phallic time detector…   If you would like to watch along with us, this story is available for streaming at both Britbox US (http://www.britbox.com) and Britbox UK (http://www.britbox.co.uk).
