The only Doctor Who podcast to tackle 5 seasons of the 3rd Doctor in only 2 years!
Joy Piedmont and Kyle Anderson do a deep dive on one story from the Jon Pertwee tenure of Doctor Who every month, talking about its themes, origins, historical context, and all-around cool factor. After all, who's more suave than the Third Doctor?
The Monster of Peladon
For our penultimate Pertwee story, we look at *checks notes* wait, is this right? "The Monster of Peladon?" Well, I guess if we have to.
Death to the Daleks
Third to last story for the Third Doctor and it's the third of his Dalek stories. Ermahgerd, Derlerks.
Invasion of the Dinosaurs
Our final Malcolm Hulke story is an oft-maligned but undeservedly so. "Invasion of the Dinosaurs" has intrigue, politics, weird sci-fi ideals, Sarah Jane being absolutely awesome, a dramatic turn for Mike Yates, and the Doctor's best jacket. Yes, and some cruddy looking dinosaur puppets too. What're you gonna do?
The Time Warrior
It's the beginning of the end. Sad face. Our journey through the Third Doctor's reign begins its inevitable march toward the finish. But at least we have a really fun one to talk about --- "The Time Warrior!" Written by Robert Holmes, this story introduces the Sontarans, the word Gallifrey, and most importantly, brand new companion, the amazing Sarah Jane Smith!
The Green Death
We finish up another season of the Third Doctor with a beloved classic, "The Green Death." And who better to join us for a discussion into Jo Grant's final story than returning champion Sage Young?! We get into maggots, miners, and meet-cutes in this truly legendary Doctor Who story.
Planet of the Daleks
This month...well, it is. Kyle and Joy talk about "Planet of the Daleks," the also-ran of season 10. It's pretty boring, AND it has bad gender politics. But at least Pertwee and Manning have good costumes.
A welcome addition to the plethora of Doctor Who podcasts, with two terrific, smart hosts!
This podcasts’ got wings
Like all projects involving Joy and Kyle, 5 Years Rapid is charming, informative, and fun.
If you like Pertwee...
This is the way a Doctor Who podcast should be done. My only suggestion would be to add more production information if you have it for the story.
