Doctor Who: Watchers in the Fourth Dimension

Feb 25 2024 • 58 mins

We continue our journey through all of Doctor Who, as we discuss the third serial of Season 15: Image of the Fendahl. Received fan wisdom has this as being one of the better stories of the season… however, we’re in our controversial era this season – will we find gothic Who’s final story be a worthy last hurrah, or will we find it to be as limp as a salt-covered leech? Listen in to find out!

Join us as we discuss Benedict Cumberbatch’s Mum, Big Finish’s inevitable “Leaky the Dog” series (featuring Jackie Tyler), the sloppy kitchen sink approach of lazy representations of the occult, Reilly’s dislike of squelching, and the Doctor’s hypocrisy with Time Lords. We also ask the important questions like “why does Leela look like she’s going to Coachella?”
