    The Macra Terror Part One Examinied

    Happy Halloween! Examining The Doctor returns to the airwaves with a monster story that was recently remade into an animated release. The Macra Terror was broadcast in 1967 starring Patrick Troughton as The Second Doctor. In the story The Doctor, Jamie, Ben, and Polly land on an unknown planet where everybody seems to be gleefully working for The Colony. However, all is not what it seems and The Doctor soon unveils a coverup run by… Giant Crabs?















    You can find The Macra Terror on physical media, and streaming on BritBox as well as Amazon.

    Geekville Radio Halloween Sampler







    It’s October, which means for many fellow geeks it’s Halloween Season! We love Halloween here at Geekville Radio and have a slew of special shows and programming in store for you in the coming weeks.















    Examining The Dead, our Horror-themed podcast will review two Western films with horror elements. First up, the original Westworld with the iconic performance by Yul Brynner as The Gunman. Next up, the more recent Kurt Russell film Bone Tomahawk. And if you haven’t seen it, it is NOT for the squeamish.







    Finally, we’ll talk about horror characters and where they might stand on the classic D&D Alignment descriptions.







    Over on The Lesser Known Geek Hall Of Fame, we are inducting the first movie studio, Amicus Productions. They have made many a horror film over the years, to the p[oint where some titles got mistaken for the much better-known Hammer Films company. Whovians may recognize Amicus as the company that produced the two Peter Cushing Dr. Who feature films in the mid-1960s.







    In our Classic Wrestling Memories podcast, we will review the oft-referenced WCW Halloween Havoc from 1991. While it actually had a pretty good main event with then WCW World Champion defending the title against Ron Simmons, it is perhaps best-known for having the laughable opening match called “The Chamber Of Horrors Match”. That match ended with the “electrocution” of Abdullah The Butcher. Future Hall Of Famers Sting, Mick Foley, and Scott Hall were also part of the match.







    Meanwhile, for Geekville Radio’s Nostalgia Trip, we will be looking at the classic 1960s TV Sitcom The Munsters.







    On this very website, we will provide one trailer a day for all 31 days of October.







    For our Doctor Who commentary podcast, Examining The Doctor, we will take a look at the Patrick Troughton story The Macra Terror, which sees giant crabs wreaking havoc on an otherwise peaceful city.







    As always, we are open to suggestions. Let us know below what you would like to hear when it comes to Halloween themed entertainment from us!
