Doctor Who: Watchers in the Fourth Dimension

Episode 4: Mongolface (Marco Polo)

February 17, 2019

In this episode, the Watchers discuss Marco Polo, in which almost every character spends seven episodes blissfully ignoring who the villain actually is. Along the way, Julie brings the Bechdel test into play, Reilly throws shade on Marco Polo’s character, Don enthuses over “drunk” Ian, and Anthony admits his love for Barbara. The team wraps up the episode by discussing the missing episodes – how they came to be missing, the returns that have happened, and the rumors around the ongoing search.

For those who want to watch along with us, this one is missing, so you can’t actually watch it. However, the narrated soundtrack is available as a standalone release through Amazon US, and as part of The Lost TV Episodes: Collection One on Amazon UK. To avoid any potential problems around copyright infringement, we’re not linking directly to any of the reconstructions, but they’re relatively easy to find with a wonderful tool called Google.
