The Watchers discuss the first return of everyone’s favourite fascist pepper pots, as we also say goodbye to two familiar faces on either side of the camera. Over the course of the episode, Anthony enthuses about the location shooting, Julie gets excited over Ian’s whip, Don finds himself disappointed with the lack of sex pants, and Reilly draws comparisons between the Daleks and the Nazi sketch from That Mitchell and Webb Look.

The Watchers kick off Season Two of Doctor Who with the discussion of Planet of Giants. Unsurprisingly, once again the team enthuse over their love for Barbara. They also discuss the concepts of sartorial elegance in the story, rave over the sets and practical effects, and the entire cast reveal that they are cat people. Of course, they also talk about that most English way of dying - Death by Stiff Upper Lip.
