With a wistful goodbye to a beloved companion, but a resounding approval for the story itself, we bask in the radiation to reconstitute a crystalline gem of a Fourth Doctor story.
Gazing into Season 14 like so many 15th century telescopes, we step back to a Baker and Sladen historical piece with a talented, if singularly gendered, supporting cast.
Strapping on our weed-killer backpacks, and exercising absolutely ZERO patience for thug henchmen, we plunge into the undergrowth of “The Seeds of Doom”, the closing story of Season 13.
This week, Jeremy Radick calls in once again to join us for a lovely stroll through a dark and sinister laboratory, as “The Brain of Morbius” taunts us into action.
This week, Jay is out of the studio (or IS he?) as the rest of us learn to trust no one in ‘The Android Invasion’. We’re 90% certain we’re watching Doctor Who and not Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but this is a Terry Nation script, so who can be certain?

The beginning, middle, and end just fall into place, straightforward and true. (And you don’t even have to mention that in the crafting of the story, people were getting seriously injured, and it was probably best that you didn’t drag things for any longer, else something really nasty might come about.) This week, Taylor Nelson from The […]
That favourite t-shirt, which looks a but threadbare, but is the softest thing in your bureau. That hokey song that has been around forever, and makes all your friends roll their eyes, but you still sing it at the top of your lungs in the shower. The comfort food that has all the nutritional value of a bathmat, but brings a smile to your face just preparing it. We all have those things that mean the world to us, though […]
