    80. Hong. Kong!?

    Ben and Mark return from their festive hibernation to discuss the mythical Cybermen.

    In Nightmare in Silver, the fantastical worlds of Neil Gaiman clash with the sci-fi action movie, whilst Tomb of the Cybermen updates Egyptian tomb raiding for the cybernetic age.

    But are they any good?

    Under discussion: Brazilian stew, Mark's proposed Tomb of the Cybermen stage production with a cast of 10 year olds, racial representation, what it means to be human, the slow, creeping death of Doctor Who fandom and the perils of imagination.

    78. Ripping Out the Copper Wiring

    Ben and Mark take two very different journeys to the centre of the TARDIS as they discuss 'Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS' and 'The Invasion of Time'.

    Just what is it about the Doctor's TARDIS that fascinates people so much? And similarly, what's the obsession with Gallifrey? We don't have the answers, but they're questions worth positing.

    Under discussion: Reprehensible and terrifying supporting characters, bottle episodes, tinfoil, Star Trek, Yes, Minister, an eloquent analysis of Steven Moffat's approach to time travel and the excellence of Milton Johns.

    ALSO: Mark outlines Leela's life in spin-off media to an increasingly anxious and upset Ben.

    WARNING! May contain looms.

    Ben returns to the podcast for a Halloween special as we discuss the spooky goings on in Hide and Image of the Fendahl. Two stories, it soon turns out, that are quite evenly matched. (About time, 77 episodes in)

    Under discussion: The perils of dropping the T-Bomb, reaching the age where 'totty for the dads' is directed at you, the flaws of the show's sci-fi format, two(!) sequels to Image of the Fendahl, some opinions on Ravenous 4, and a competition over whose girlfriend is least intereste

    It's a Ben-lite episode, but will it be Love & Monsters or Blink?

Under discussion: Mammoths on submarines, Ultravox, planning your whole story around a title, everyday sexism, design marvels and scavenging hee-haw.
