Episode 128

Completely Superfluous

There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea’s asleep, and the rivers dream. People made of smoke, and cities made of song. Somewhere there’s danger, somewhere there’s injustice, and somewhere else the tea’s getting cold. Come on, Ace, we’ve got work to do!

This week, all four of us assemble on Horsenden Hill to light a fire, muck about, and discuss the last story of the 26-year run of the Classic Series. It’s Survival.

Buy the story!

Survival was released on DVD in 2007. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)

Fans of the music of Dominic Glynn will also enjoy FTE’s multi-award winning radio drama Time Inc.

The Planet of the Cheetah People (Cheetos in the constellation of Acinonyx) operates like a single biological entity. The Gaia Hypothesis postulates that the Earth operates in the same way.

Horrifyingly, Adele Silva is now 37 years old, and is famous for playing Kelly Windsor on Emmerdale. She’s a mum now.

Picks of the week


For the second time, Nathan’s pick is the New to Who podcast, which covers those Doctor Who stories which you might actually want to watch, particularly if you’re a fan of the New Series.


Dominic Glynn has recently released an EP called The Happiness Patrol Remixes, with new versions of the superb incidental music he composed for that story


Fans of both unnecessarily long films and TV’s Sylvester McCoy will want to rush out and buy the Blu-ray box set of The Hobbit Motion Picture Trilogy. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)


Richard has been enjoying the Titan Comics Doctor Who range, particularly those starring the Ninth Doctor and the Twelfth Doctor.

He also recommends listening to Sam Waxman‘s film noir scores, just to see how this sort of thing can be done really well.

Over on Bondfinger, we’ve resumed our long-delayed flight through the Pierce Brosnan Era, which is nice, with the release of our latest commentary on The World Is Not Enough.

Our commentaries on the first two Pierce Brosnan films are still available, and so are our commentaries on the Timothy Dalton films.

We also have plenty of Rodgecasts online, and there are other Bonds available, as well. Even fake ones.
