Episode 146

Commentary Takes All

This week, we take a break from our break between series of New Who to deliver our long-awaited commentary on a popular story from the Davison Era. Friend of the podcast Colin Neal joins all of us as we leave our howling void and race around the planet Venus in the hope of achieving Enlightenment.

Buy the story!

Enlightenment was released on DVD in 1992/1993. In the US, it was released on its own, I think, but it’s completely unavailable on Amazon. Still, you can just buy it as part of the Black Guardian Trilogy box set (Amazon US), which is how it was released in the UK and Australia (Amazon UK).

You can find a much shorter and more focussed discussion of this episode in our regular Enlightenment episode — Episode 88: The Other Baron, recorded in July 2016. You can find all our other commentaries on our commentaries page, obviously.

Jodie into Terror

While we’ve been on our break, Doctor Who has finished its latest season, which means that there are now ten episodes of our flashcast Jodie into Terror, where we think deeply about each new episode for a couple of hours before inflicting our ill-considered opinions on a largely indifferent world. You can find Jodie into Terror at jodieintoterror.com, @JodieIntoTerror on Twitter, and on Apple Podcasts.


Over on Bondfinger, we have commentary podcasts on every single James Bond film, including a very short and incoherent one that literally no one can understand.

You can find Bondfinger at bondfinger.com, and on Twitter at @bondfingercast.
