Episode 78 I’ve Walked Between That Cow

The world will be destroyed in four days, apparently, and to prepare for this, Brendan is wearing a stylish green velour suit, Richard has gathered his hair in a delightful side ponytail, and Nathan has just really let himself go. It’s Four to Doomsday.

Buy the story!

Four to Doomsday was released on DVD in 2008 in the UK and Australia, and in 2009 in the US. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK).

Notes and links

Fans of Philip Locke, who plays Bigon in this story, will enjoy his performances in three episodes of The Avengers: From Venus with Love, Mandrake and The Frighteners, which also featured Stratford Johns, who plays Monarch in this story. Horrifyingly, Philip Locke also plays creepy sexless henchmen Vargas in Thunderball.

Fans of bisected farm animals will enjoy Damien Hirst’s 1993 artwork Mother and Child.

Much like the Urbankans, cane toads were introduced into Australia to control the grey-backed cane beetle. As usual, this didn’t go well.

This YouTube video includes every utterance of the words “some kind of”, “some sort of” or “some type of” in Star Trek: Voyager. There are 393, for God’s sake.

Monarch weirdly anticipates Baron Silas Greenback from Danger Mouse.

Annie Lambert, this story’s Minister of Enlightenment, plays Helen McKay in The New Avengers episode Three-Handed Game.
