Episode 17: Have You Got Your Oxymask?

Update: 2021-08-27


Joined by our old friend Gareth Preston, we discuss the news of the departure of Chris Chibnall and Jodie Whittaker, Chaz gushes forth with an unusual theory of why the TARDIS was destroyed in the End of Time. Lurching from traumatic mutations to bloody stones to Halloween 3 - Kneale before us, it’s The Randomiser Podcast episode 17.

Chaz and Tim have recently guested on Gareth's excellent podcast Very British Futures and heartily recommend it for a series of discussions of forgotten gems of British Sci-fi and Fantasy. Also Kinvig.

Regular Features

Your Cheatin' Memory -

Each episode we use to choose a random Doctor Who story and see what we can recall about it. Then we go away and rewatch it to discuss next time.

This episode, we've just rewatched:
to ho flo sho kro no vo blo so kro plo no sho plo fo sho to kro mo flo
(That's in Judoon, courtesy of, where you can translate it back to English if you want to know the episode we discussed.)

Romp or Pomp? - A fast and curious attempt to quickly categorise randomly chosen stories into to two utterly arbitrary kinds... fun filled Romp versus circumstance-heavy Pomp.

Tangent of the Week - We're rewatching Red Dwarf, smegheads. This time we're discussing Back to Earth.

Challenge! - Chaz has been challenged to finally watch The Mutants. Turns out he may already have!

Which corridor is this? - A mysterious stone circle, a bunch of masked figures chanting "Carry on, carry on, carry on" - it's either the cult of Kenneth Williams, or The Stones of Blood...

Monster by Monster - we randomly select a few of the show's monsters and aliens and almost discuss them.

We welcome your thoughts and feedback!
