    138: The Ultimate Foe

    138: The Ultimate Foe

    Welcome to The Fun Factory: trespassers will be self-prosecuted.
    The Valeyard (aka The Flaw Doctor) makes the most of a unique Time Lord feature and gives his own SJW predecessor a right legal leathering on Space Station SFX.

    But they still find time for trips to Camber Quicksands and Popplewick’s House of Exploding Quills, where the waiting room is spacious but gives you that sinking feeling.
    The Doctor quotes, the Master gloats and Glitz dotes on bank notes, while the Keeper is not averse to the odd slide tackle to protect his Panatropic Net (even though Mel always aims for row Z).
    But did Jim and Martin find The Ultimate Foe ultimately forgettable or a worthy way to end an era?
    Listen to find out.
    The lads also review the audiobooks of The Krotons and The Curse of Fenric.
    Also available on Spotify.

    137: The Dalek Invasion of Earth

    137: The Dalek Invasion of Earth

    You may think life can’t get much worse at the moment but locked-down Brexity Britain looks positively idyllic compared to Blighty under the rubber skirt of Dalek rule.

    This septic isle is overrun with motorised dustbins, headphone-wearing dullards who’ve really let themselves go and the most unrealistic pet since K9.
    The Doctor falls on his coccyx, Susan falls in love, Ian falls out of a door and Babs falls in with a rough crowd and TWOKs a dustcart. Luckily, a fratricidal fellow rebel lends two hands and Mr Rumbold lends his ears but the perma-grumpy Mrs Briers fails to stop Babs succumbing to crones.
    Would you buy a used mattress from a Dalek?
    Is the entry exam for the Roboman Academy too difficult?
    How many floating corpses would it take to put you off a glass of water?
    And did Jim and Martin find The Dalek Invasion of Earth to be a glorious triumph or a misbegotten folly?
    Listen to find out!
    The lads also review the audiobooks of Fury From The Deep and The Awakening.

    136: Snakedance

    136: Snakedance

    What could be more fun at Christmas than a Punch and Judy show?
    Almost anything, of course, but perhaps even puppety domestic violence is preferable to mental subservience to an ancient evil.

    This is the lot of tetchy Tegan, who’s red in tooth and eye again, but at least she gets to spread the hate with an embryonic Doc Martin this time around.
    Nyssa cosplays a deckchair and the Doctor indulges in some heavy breathing, while Mr Sladen is forced to reflect on the viability of his shoddy little booth. Lon’s special dress is even shorter than his temper but not as skimpy as his mum’s interest in Ambril’s antiques.
    But did Jim and Martin find Snakedance becoming or did they conclude that that’s not the way to do it?
    Listen to find out!
    The lads also review the audiobooks of The Mark of the Rani and The Pyramids of Mars.

    135: The Invasion of Time

    135: The Invasion of Time

    When is a talkative chair not a talkative chair?
    When it’s an alien shower curtain. Or a stumpy git in a pith helmet.

    But, underwhelming as they are, the Vardans still plan an Invasion of Time by conquering pound-shop Gallifrey – a land of medicinal jelly beans, powerful ping pong balls and walnut-chomping dropouts.
    Its denizens include Chancellor Borusa who’s more put-upon than Tom Baker’s beer mat and Castellan Kelner who’s slimier than a newly-painted Myrka. And, of course, a prototype Romana who’s qualified to wield a screwdriver but can’t hack it in the university of life, even with a bumper pack of Giant Smarties at her side.
    The Doctor shouts, K9 snarks and Leela shacks up with an innocent bystander, while the surprise Sontarans stomp about, searching in vain for a jellied eels stall.
    But did Jim and Martin find the story an all-conquering triumph or was it just an unwelcome invasion of their time?
    Listen to find out.
    The lads also review the audiobooks of The Doomsday Weapon and The Edge of Destruction.
    Also available on Spotify.

    134: Fury From The Deep

    134: Fury From The Deep

    Scream if you want to leave faster!
    That seems to be Victoria’s tactic as she sobs, whimpers and shrieks her way out of the show in Fury From The Deep.

    Indeed, old Leather Lungs’ prodigious output is harnessed to harass some killer kelp and make its human puppets less weedy – even beating the expert man-mismanager John Robson for decibels in the process.
    Jamie opts out of a foam party and, for a change, it’s the Doctor who can’t control his chopper. Meanwhile, Mr Wint and Mr Kidd need to rethink their dental hygiene regimes and Perkins would be better off seeking his raison d’etre than searching for a spouse.
    Has Maggie Harris been at the Mother’s Ruin?
    Does the new animation place the story deeper within the long arms of the lore?
    And did Fury From The Deep sweep Jim and Martin along or leave them beached on the shores of ennui?
    Listen to find out.
    The lads also review the audiobooks of The Dominators and Dragonfire.
    Also available on Spotify.

    133: The Space Museum

    133: The Space Museum

    A museum? On a planet, you say?
    Amazingly, that’s just where TARDIS brings Doctor Who and chums in The Space Museum. But the problems here are worse than an expensive gift shop, a blocked urinal or a coach party of feral school kids.

    For the planet Xeros is occupied by the moaning Morocks, a race only slightly less pathetic than the indigenous teenage beatniks, among whom subjugation raises barely/only an eyebrow.
    And our plucky travellers have problems of their own, chiefly their future starring roles in the most boring tourist attraction since the financially disastrous Sensorites’ Sexy Sashes exhibition.
    Our heroes deal with the trauma in their own individual ways though, with the Doctor kipping for an episode, Vicki stirring up the students, Babs having a smoke break and Ian chewing her cardigan.
    Will the time travellers evade their fate?
    Would you buy a used glass from Vicki?
    What day is Nude Day on the TARDIS?
    And did Jim and Martin find themselves informed and entertained by The Space Museum or is it just a dusty old relic?
    Listen to find out!
    The lads also review the audiobooks of The Curse of Peladon and Image of the Fendahl.
    You can also find this and many other Krynoid PodCast episodes on Spotify.

The Prentis Hancock Appreciation Society

I have on the other end of a podcast app two men, Jim and Martin, who provide excellent commentary on Doctor Who old and new.

Occasionally joined by Jim’s brother Rob they never fail to entertain with analysis of the adventures of our favourite Timelord so forensic and informative that it verges on the frightening.

There’s also double entendres a plenty about equipment, tools and weapons.

Listen now and you too will enter a state of excitement and arousal that rivals Adric in the Masters’ web.

Fantastic

All I can say is ‘see title for opinion’.

I’ve listened to every episode and love em so much I’m punishing myself with repeat viewing..... listening

Tim Smif ,

Great in-depth rewatch

This is kinda the perfect podcast for proper in-depth discussion on classic stories and each aspect from them. Little bit of humour here and there mixed with good points and analysis. Started listening to them as I go on long walks and they are a great accompaniment. 5 stars. P.s. please do the silurians or terror of the zygons
