A Doctor Who review podcast! Following and analyzing both Classic and New episodes of one of the greatest sci-fi shows ever.
Episode 219: Horror of Fang Rock OR Something Nasty in the Coal Hole
No, you haven't tumbled into the movie The Lighthouse. It's Horror of Fang Rock! This 4th Doctor adventure is full of excellent Leela moments, a team of lighthouse keepers, a mysterious meteor crashing into the ocean, a creepy fog, a crashed boat of snooty types, one excellent slap, and only two characters make it to the end of the story! Horror of Fang Rock is essentially a British murder mystery masquerading as Doctor Who. Join us as we punt the Rutan back down the stairs over and over again!
Episode 218: The Maltese Penguin OR Hard-Boiled Exposition
After far too many episodes, we review a Big Finish story (and we have plans for more in the near future)! Between a hard-boiled detective and a multi-colored Doctor, we find The Maltese Penguin! Originally a bonus story, this adventure is a fantastic blend of parody, homage, and crazy Doctor Who logic! If you've never heard this one, be sure to check the show notes for a link to purchase the story.
Episode 217: Warriors of the Deep OR Missle Run Green Alert
This time John and Taylor sit down to review the season opener for Season 21! Warriors of the Deep is a classic undersea base under siege tale with two of the slowest-walking, oddly talking monsters in Whovian history! And they're taking advantage of a future Cold War to take back control of Earth! Can the Doctor, Tegan, and Turlough stop them? Will they fall prey to a panto sea monster?! Will they just end up the only ones standing, surrounded by the dead? Yeah, it's a little dark in Warriors of the Deep!
Episode 216: Terror of the Autons OR Radio Tower Nonsense
50 years ago this month, Season 8 of Classic Who marked the introduction of some absolutely legendary characters. Both The Master and Jo Grant made their debut in Terror of the Autons! To celebrate this anniversary, we sat down to watch and discuss this absolutely fantastic story! From moment one, The Master is on point! Jo is a breath of fresh energy! And with everything from circuses to quarries, crazy stunts, and lots of CSO...Terror of the Autons is a fantastic watch!
Episode 215: Revolution of the Daleks or No Dalek Necks
You say you want a revolution. Well, you know...THAT IT SHOULD NEVER INVOLVE DALEKS! Really, Daleks in your revolution is bad. But this week we sit down to discuss the New Year's Special Revolution of the Daleks! It's a mostly entertaining story with the return of some welcome faces, one face we'd really like to see punched, and two faces who leave at the end (but live!). For all we liked about this adventure, there were a few troubling aspects that left things feeling a little lopsided going into Season 13.
Episode 214: Dreamland OR From the High Desert and the Great American Southwest
Our final episode of 2020! Thank you so much for joining us this year! It's been a rough ride, but there's light at the end of the tunnel. We hope you're having a great holiday and are staying safe. So join us now as we venture into Dreamland!
A companion-less Doctor arrives in a remote part of Nevada in 1958 and quickly finds himself facing down the Men in Black, the US government, and a race of cockroach-esque aliens as he finds himself within the confines of the infamous Area 51! There he ends up helping a pair of classic gray aliens...who happen to be married, because sure...grays are down to marry. There aren’t any classic saucers, but there’s much to be found in Dreamland!
