Doctor Who: Watchers in the Fourth Dimension
Episode 4: Mongolface and Monkey  (Marco Polo)

Episode 4: Mongolface and Monkey (Marco Polo)

February 17, 2019

In this episode, the Watchers discuss Marco Polo, in which almost every character spends seven episodes blissfully ignoring who the villain actually is. Along the way, Julie brings the Bechdel test into play, Reilly throws shade on Marco Polo’s character, Don enthuses over “drunk” Ian, and Anthony admits his love for Barbara. The team wraps up the episode by discussing the missing episodes – how they came to be missing, the returns that have happened, and the rumors around the ongoing search.

For those who want to watch along with us, this one is missing, so you can’t actually watch it. However, the narrated soundtrack is available as a standalone release through Amazon US, and as part of The Lost TV Episodes: Collection One on Amazon UK. To avoid any potential problems around copyright infringement, we’re not linking directly to any of the reconstructions, but they’re relatively easy to find with a wonderful tool called Google.

Episode 3: Susan Loves Scissoring (The Edge of Destruction)

February 3, 2019

In this episode, the Watchers discuss The Edge of Destruction, the only Doctor Who story that directly contradicts your mother’s instructions not to run with scissors (with hilarious consequences). Along the way, Julie indulges her inner musician, Reilly ponders whether the show could’ve continued without Barbara, while Don and Anthony compare the Doctor to Carl Sagan and William Shatner, respectively. The team wraps up by discussing whether or not anyone would remember the show if it had ended with this serial.
