Even Better with Your Face
Sunday, 29 January 2017
This week, Brendan, Nathan and Todd are back to review the Cybermen’s 1985 compilation album Attack of the Cybermen, in which the band revisit all their classic hits from the 1960s, including Another Planet (1966), Clever Clever Clever (1967), You Belong to Us (1967), Initiate Plan Three (1968) and perennial fan favourite It Has Been Agreed (1968). Not all of us appreciate the nostalgia.

Attack of the Cybermen was released on DVD in 2009. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)
Notes and links
Doctor Who: The Complete History is a series of beautifully produced hardback books chronicling the entire history of the programme, from its first beginnings to the present day.
Brendan mentions an adorable photo of TV’s Starbucks Dirk Benedict and Katee Sackoff drinking Starbucks at Starbucks. Katee Sackoff’s current Twitter profile picture is equally adorable.
Brendan would just like to take this opportunity to plug the book Hating to Love: Re-evaluating the Worst 52 Doctor Who Stories of All Time, in which he tries to redeem, excuse or explain seven somewhat unloved Doctor Who stories. The book was edited by JR Southall, of Blue Box Podcast fame.
Brendan is on Twitter as @brandybongos, Nathan is @nathanbottomley, Todd is @toddbeilby, and Richard is @RichardLStone. The Flight Through Entirety theme was arranged by Cameron Lam. You can follow the podcast on Twitter at @FTEpodcast.

Doctor Who in 10 Seconds

If you haven’t checked it out yet, you really should. And make sure you subscribe to his YouTube channel, so that you are informed immediately when the Season 8 episode becomes available.
