Why Can’t I Wear Trousers?

This episode, Brendan, Richard and Nathan tackle the difficult subjects of ants and fraternity as they discuss three ant-astic stories from the middle of Doctor Who’s second season: The Romans, The Web Planet and The Crusade. So tune up your lyres, pull up a dormouse, and listen along. There’s a bit of that cold peacock left in the fridge, I think.

Someone Lost Their Beagle

Our endless flight through Doctor Who’s third season chokes, stalls and crashes into The Massacre, The Ark and The Celestial Toymaker. And Nathan’s not at all happy. (Let’s put a cork on that, Nathan!)

Tropes Tropes Tropes Tropes Tropes

We’ve finally reached the end of our flight through Doctor Who’s third season. It’s been a long and controversial journey, but happily it ends with The Gunfighters, The Savages and The War Machines. So have one on the house. It isn’t every day we get the over–twenties in this place. (Oh wait, it is.)

How Can You Snog a Monoid?

In this Very Special Episode, Brendan, Richard and Nathan are interviewed by Doctor Who convention impresario Todd Beilby about their experience of podcasting their way through Doctor Who in the sixties. Hartnell, Troughton or Cushing? Barbara, Polly or Zoë? (Barbara, obviously.) What’s our favourite story? Our favourite moment? Our favourite villain? Our favourite pratfall? And, most importantly, what have we learned from our flight through entirety?
