The Watchers kick off Season Two of Doctor Who with the discussion of Planet of Giants. Unsurprisingly, once again the team enthuse over their love for Barbara. They also discuss the concepts of sartorial elegance in the story, rave over the sets and practical effects, and the entire cast reveal that they are cat people. Of course, they also talk about that most English way of dying - Death by Stiff Upper Lip.
