Doctor Who: Watchers in the Fourth Dimension

Episode 69: HAVOC Don‘t Come For Free (The Mind of Evil)

October 10, 2021

Peace conferences! Lobotomy by alien brain parasite! Prison takeovers! Chemical missile theft! More disguises! It’s all in a day’s work for the UNIT folks, as we discuss The Master’s second outing on Doctor Who in The Mind of Evil.


Over the course of the episode, Reilly finds himself a new favourite member of the UNIT team, Julie plays Yates off against Benton, Anthony questions why UNIT are on security duty for a peace conference, and Don is pleased at the avoidance of the “horrible boss” trope. As a group, we discuss whether or not this serial displays racism towards the people of China.
