Fix or Flux
Saturday, 21 November 2020
This month, Brendan’s got his hand stuck up a robot, and Nathan is preparing a roast dinner made entirely of carrots and prions, when they are unexpectedly joined by those travellers in space and time known only as Pete Lambert and Conrad Westmaas. The conversation soon turns to accents, zombies and specious moral dilemmas: this is, after all, The Waters of Mars.
Notes and links
The review of this episode Conrad mentions is by Sam Wallaston’s, who has a healthy disregard for children, apparently.
Fans of things that traumatised Brendan as a child (see also Episode 94: Not Allowed to Watch That One) will also enjoy Bob in a Bottle (1991), a weird Canadian dub of a Japanese animation called The Genie Family (1969). The last episode is particularly upsetting.
And finally, for those of you with pure hearts or strong stomachs, here’s David Tennant in 2008, accepting his award for Outstanding Drama Performance and announcing his resignation from Doctor Who.
