Richard makes a triumphant return to the podcast just in time for the start of the Sylvester McCoy era. And the Rani’s back too, cosplaying as Brendan for some reason. It’s Time and the Rani.
So free will is not an illusion after all
Every time we turn around it’s election season, and here at Flight Through Entirety, things are no different. This time we want you to vote for a Peter Davison story for our upcoming commentary podcast, scheduled for release after we finish Season 25.
Voting in the FTE Peter Davison commentary poll has now closed. In this poll, our listeners made a choice between Four to Doomsday, Arc of Infinity, Enlightenment and Resurrection of the Daleks. The winner, with 40% of the vote, was Enlightenment.

Notes and links
Philip Sandifer has posted a video blog in which he explains why he thinks the visual style of this story is a vast improvement. Scroll to the bottom of his discussion of this story, or, better still, read the whole thing.
Fans of terrible dialogue and refreshingly simplistic plots will also enjoy Pip and Jane’s episode of Space: 1999, which is called A Matter of Balance. (That’s a link to the actual episode, by the way, so click carefully.)
The story of King Solomon’s wisdom can be found in 1 Kings 3:16–28.
Mrs Malaprop was a hilarious comedy aunt from Sheridan’s play The Rivals (1775), famous for continually choosing the wrong word; despite that, she was the very pineapple of politeness.
Brendan’s quixotic quest to read every original Doctor Who novel is insightfully and entertainingly chronicled on his blog, The Doctor Who Reader.
Brendan is on Twitter as @critiqaltheory, Nathan is @nathanbottomley, Todd is @toddbeilby and Richard is @RichardLStone. The Flight Through Entirety theme was arranged by Cameron Lam, and the logo was designed by Anthony Wells. You can follow the podcast on Twitter at @FTEpodcast. And more surprising and completely reliable information about the show can be found at @FTEwhofacts.
We’re also on Facebook, and you can check out our website at flightthroughentirety.com. Please consider rating or reviewing us on iTunes, or before you know it Brendan will be cosplaying as you and trying to deceive all your closest friends.
Over on Bondfinger, we’ve just recorded a new commentary on the second Pierce Brosnan film, Tomorrow Never Dies (1997). We’ll be releasing that this week. In the meantime, feel free to enjoy more of Pierce in our commentary on GoldenEye (1995).
