Episode 4: Four-hour Tofu flame war.

Update: 2020-01-30


Spoilers for Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror and indeed any previous Doctor Who episodes!

Spoilers for Episode One of Star Trek: Picard and previous Star Trek too...


In this episode Tim & Chaz discuss Nikola Terror's Night of Tesla, and reflect on how much we can't spoon Standerisms. There's a lot of Big Finish in the middle, gratuitous product placement and some challenging Tofu.

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:

(That's in Judoon, courtesy of, where you can translate it back to English if you want to know the episode we discussed.)

Ask Dr Schultz - In-depth analysis and thought provoking scientific context from our scientific advisor.

Tangent of the Week - A discussion of something almost, but not quite, entirely unrelated to the rest of the episode.
This week: Star Trek: Picard.

Which Corridor is this? - Tim is rewatching the series in order, inspired by Rob Shearman and Tobe Hadoke's books "Running Through Corridors"
This time: A beautiful art-deco corridor, full of killer robots!

Challenge! - Last week Tim challenged Chaz to finally watch The Mutants. We'll hear how he got on, and a new challenge will be set.

Doctor by Doctor - we randomly select a Doctor and discuss their era.

We welcome your thoughts and feedback!
