May 31, 2020

In this episode, “Yeeted by Cutlery” the Watchers say “hello!” to a new favourite monster, meet an overly aggressive American military commander, and bid farewell to the First Doctor - all in the setting of the South Pole. It’s time for us to discuss The Tenth Planet!

 

This episode, Reilly talks about the true threat of the story, Julie discusses the imbalance among the TARDIS crew, Anthony is surprised about an infodump working for once, and Don questions Ben’s ability as a military man. The entire team gets excited about the introduction of the Cybermen, and discuss literally everything about them – from their costumes and voices to how they were defeated.

In this bonus episode, “Dammit Susan” Anthony and Julie discuss Julie’s first Big Finish experience, with “The Library of Alexandria” – a Companion Chronicle narrated by Ian Chesterton himself, William Russell!

 

Join them as they discuss the history of the library, including how it was really destroyed, as well as the budding romance in the story, jealousy, and Susan being Susan. As you'd expect, there's a fair amount of discussion as to how Julie enjoyed her first Big Finish audio.

Episode 33: Pirates of the Caribboring (The Smugglers)

May 17, 2020

In this episode, “Pirates of the Caribboring” the Watchers kick-start Season 4 with the swashbuckling adventure known only as “The Smugglers.” Oh... maybe “swashbuckling” and “adventure” oversells it a bit?

 

This episode, Anthony talks censorship, Julie gets excited about the shirtless men of the story, Don discusses his least-favourite trope, and Reilly highlights the Doctor’s boozing. Spoiler alert: the entire team doesn't find much to enjoy about this story.

 

For those who want to watch along with us, this story is sadly missing. You can find the missing episodes on narrated audio in The Lost TV Episodes: Collection Two box set through either Amazon US (https://amzn.to/3BT5dAh) or Amazon UK (https://amzn.to/3vlQnzY). If you want to watch the reconstruction, you should Google it – we don’t want to be naughty by posting a link to Dailymotion *cough*.

May 3, 2020

In this episode, “No (Terrance) Dicks, No Lava Lamps” the Watchers crew tread somewhat familiar, yet slightly different ground, as they discuss the second Peter Cushing Dalek movie, Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.

 

This episode, Anthony can’t resist a final cheeky dig at Richard Martin, Julie talks about the diminishment of the role of women in the film, Don gets excited over the use of fetish gear, and Reilly ponders how Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 B.C.(!) might have worked out. Naturally, the entire team find themselves repeatedly comparing the film to the original TV serial.
