Doctor Who: Watchers in the Fourth Dimension

Bonus Episode 14: The Devil Was Huge in the 70s (The Omen and The House That Dripped Blood)

October 28, 2021

It’s a seasonal bonus episode of Watchers in the FEAR Dimension, as Reilly rallies the crew to discuss two classic horror films featuring stars from Doctor Who – The Omen (featuring Patrick Troughton) and the Amicus anthology The House That Dripped Blood (featuring Jon Pertwee and Peter Cushing).

 

Along the way, Julie plays true to type as “the musical one” and expresses a love for scores by Jerry Goldsmith, Don struggles to understand how so many men could fall in love with a non-so-attractive waxwork, Anthony talks about goofy-looking vampires, and Reilly does his best Cryptkeeper impression. The entire crew discuss whether Pertwee could ever be cast as a vampire in a non-comedic way.
