Doctor Who: Watchers in the Fourth Dimension
Episode 53: One for the Dads (The Mind Robber)

Episode 53: One for the Dads (The Mind Robber)

February 28, 2021

This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension find that reality is getting too hot anyway, and move outside of the confines of our reality and into a world where they could well become works of fiction. It can only be The Mind Robber!

 

Over the course of our discussion, Julie (of course) has strong feelings about the temporary re-casting of Jamie, Anthony learns some things about Scottish culture, Reilly finds himself curious about Captain Jack Harkaway, and Don has theories on the origin of the story’s villain and the nature of the Land of Fiction itself. The entire team find themselves loving how meta this story ended up being.

 

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Hamish Wilson, who sadly passed away from COVID-19 in March 2020.

Episode 52: Replacement Hot Blonde (The Dominators)

February 14, 2021

This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension kick off Season 6 of Doctor Who with a more of a whimper than a bang, as they tackle a story that involves two hostile turtles as they seek to dominate an entire planet of hippies and turn it into a radioactive ball of lava. It’s that rather misjudged attempt at satire, known only as The Dominators

 

Over the course of our discussion, Don questions the impact of this story on the reputation of the Dominators themselves, Anthony talks about the homogeny of the Dulcians, Julie focuses in on Jamie’s kilt (as usual), and Reilly finds a way to draw a parallel between this story and horror movies! The entire crew question some of the costuming choices, and wonder what was going on with the costume designer…
