A Doctor Who fan and his friend rank every episode ever, from the new series and the old.
Life on Mars - "The Waters of Mars" & "The Ambassadors of Death"
Today, we learn the simple lesson that all space travel to the Red Planet leads to devastation and murder. But hey, keep at it, Elon and Bezos! I'm sure it'll work out OK for you all!
Stand Clear of the Closing Doctor - "Planet of the Dead" & "Time-Flight"
What if Doctor Who were like Die Hard... but on a bus!? Well, that'd be Speed. This is not that. But there is a bus. And in our classic episode: a plane!
Another Day, Another Doctor - "The Next Doctor" & "Robot"
It's the battle of the giant robots, as we pair the first non-Donna episode with the first Tom Baker joint. Who will win? Beep boop, does not compute!
A Davros by Any Other Name - "The Stolen Earth/Journey's End" & "Genesis of the Daleks"
What's the origin of the Daleks? Well, they were just a normal boy from Queens when they were bitten by a radioactive bucket/plunger thing. Or perhaps, some handicapable fellow who driven by an insatiable craving for power did. Listen and find out!
The Doctor is Out - "Turn Left" & "The Dalek Invasion of Earth 2150 AD"
When the Doctor's away, the... Donna... will play? Yes, no? No, yes? We get a big Doctor-lite episode and pair it with a filmic adaptation of a Dalek classic.
Rainbow Troughton - "Midnight" & "The Curse of Peladon"
We talk in great detail about Patrick Troughton's son (and Doctor Who character actor) David Troughton. Why? Well, I don't know. We just really didn't have much else going on.
