Doctor Who: Watchers in the Fourth Dimension
Episode 61: Hot Space Garbage (Season 6 Retrospective)

Episode 61: Hot Space Garbage (Season 6 Retrospective)

June 20, 2021

This episode, the Watchers look back on the extreme highs and even more extreme lows of Season 6 in their latest trademark Season retrospective, blending award-show style categories, qualitative measures, and questions put to us by our audience via social media.

 

Over the course of the episode, Don talks about the destructive impacts of the Quarks on their creators’ careers, Anthony gets himself mixed up between The Dominators and The Krotons (blame the 1990s VHS releases), Julie continues her Jamie obsession (knowing that this is one of her last opportunities to do so), and Reilly completely fails to accurately anticipate who everyone else will choose as “best regular.” Together, the team ponder whether they will ever re-watch The Space Pirates.

Episode 60: Hate Squabbling (The War Games - Episodes 6-10)

June 6, 2021

In this episode, we shed a tear as the end is finally here for the Second Doctor. We discuss the second half of The War Games, as the Games themselves come to their shocking conclusion, and some of the oldest questions on the show are about to get answered...

 

During the episode, Anthony asks how the Doctor has suddenly lost the ability to speak French, Reilly ponders whether Steve Jobs stole the War Lord’s style, Julie talks the differences between Jamie and Arturo’s treatment of women, and Don questions whether the War Lord’s plan actually makes sense. The entire crew discuss the extremely blatant sexual tension between the War Chief and the Security Chief, and how this devolves into what we can only describe as “hate squabbling.”
