Episode 36: Don‘t Forget the Murder Hornets (The Power of the Daleks)

June 28, 2020

After 35 episodes, The Watchers in the Fourth Dimension move onto the next chapter of Doctor Who, as they head off to the planet Vulcan (no, not that one!) to kick-off the Patrick Troughton era, as the discuss The Power of the Daleks!

 

During the discussion, Reilly talks about the physicality of Patrick Troughton’s acting, Don compares the Daleks to high school girls, Anthony gets metaphysical, and Julie finds herself pleasantly surprised by how Janley’s role grows through the story. The entire team talks about the new Doctor’s choices in hats (because we’re a hat-obsessed podcast).

Episode 35: Brit for Hire (Hartnell-era Retrospective)

Episode 35: Brit for Hire (Hartnell-era Retrospective)

June 14, 2020

Having made their way through the entirety of the William Hartnell era of Doctor Who, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension are joined by a guest host for the very first time, as R Alan Siler moderates a retrospective discussion of the entirety of the era.

 

Over the course of the discussion, the crew touch on a wide range of topics, including which missing story would benefit the most from animation, the most challenging or radically different episodes of the time, and how the era reflected the socio-political situation of the time. Anthony and Don manage to get their final blows in against Richard Martin and John Wiles, respectively. Finally, things get rather silly when Alan surprises everyone with a few rounds of “Snog, Marry, Avoid!,” with some rather outrageous options.
