This episode, we discuss the script debut of the legendary writer Robert Holmes, in a story where a group of students use the power of acid to overthrow their educational overlords! Surprisingly, it’s not footage of student riots from the 1960s – it’s actually The Krotons!
Over the course of the episode, Don gets passionate about canon, Reilly contemplates the hours of fun that would be a Kroton video game, Julie tries to make sense of why the Gonds never previously rose up against the Krotons, and Anthony gives a mini history lesson. The entire team discusses how utterly terrible and nonsensical the Krotons’ method of powering their spacecraft actually is.
