Episode 85

Tiny Little Petty Flaws

This week, the Mara are back, threatening the ancient BBC Television studio Manussa in Snakedance. Roll your eyes at Nathan’s usual jejune insults, marvel at Brendan’s theories about good Science Fiction, and become increasingly concerned at Todd’s vociferous complaints that no one gets horribly murdered in Doctor Who any more.

Buy the story!

Snakedance was released on DVD in 2011. In the US, it was released on its own (Amazon US), but in the UK and Australia it was released along with Kinda in the Mara Tales box set (Amazon UK).

Richard’s not here this week, so there’s almost no German Expressionism, and very little intertextuality. Nathan mentions Sandifer’s take on this story, as usual, so perhaps you’ll want to go and read that.

Todd refers to the Flight Through Entirety Kinda lovefest, which is the pun-tastic Episode 79: Kinda Lingers.

Doctor Who in 10 Seconds

With the release of Season 6 of Doctor Who in 10 Seconds Series 6, Brendan has now summarised every Doctor Who story of the 1960s. The 70s will only be more hilarious, so to prepare yourself, why not revisit the show in its entirety by checking out the playlist on YouTube?


Well, our commentary on Moonraker has now been released, and some of our more deranged critics have described it as our best episode over.
