Doctor Who: Watchers in the Fourth Dimension

Bonus Episode 11: When RPA Goes Wrong (Big Finish - Binary)

September 19, 2021

In this bonus episode, “When RPA Goes Wrong,” Anthony and Julie tackle Binary – a Companion Chronicle from Big Finish! This audio features the amazing Caroline John as Liz Shaw, as she battles to escape from a sentient computer that’s fallen into the hands of UNIT.


Join Anthony and Julie as they discuss this story, bringing up subjects as diverse as the ethics of sentient computers, luges, body horror, inhuman screeching, and whether the Doctor’s always right. Julie talks about her professional interaction with bots, and Anthony applies some historical methodology to the script. As usual, we’re highly complimentary of Big Finish’s soundscape (what else would you expect)!?!?
