Doctor Who: Watchers in the Fourth Dimension

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.
