Hannah Cooper was enticed by the 2005 trailers for new Doctor Who and quickly realised that the first decade and a bit of her life had been deprived. This swiftly led to UKTV Gold’s weekend omnibuses and eBay bids on deleted Peter Davison videos (still livid at being fleeced of £11.40 for The King’s Demons), as well as a slippery road towards lots of 1970s TV — some great, some awful, all of it fascinating. Her favourite story is The Caves of Androzani, and she still wonders if anyone else first encountered the Second Doctor via the BBC website’s Photonovels.
This week, Pete Lambert and Hannah Cooper join us for a particularly embarrassing Coal Hill School parents’ evening, which goes horribly wrong when a Mechanoid is found roaming the premises. It’s The Caretaker.
