Once again, the TARDIS returns to 76 Totter’s Lane, but in 1985 contemporary London. While similar to the next time the Doctor will be back, the old foe he meets now are the Cybermen, and they have a most diabolical plan that could change the course of history – both in the Doctor’s past, and our future.
Once more we return to Coal Hill School, but this time in 1963 and with the Seventh Doctor and Ace. Turns out the Doctor left something behind when he ran off and after all this time he’s come back to claim it. Or rather arrange for the Daleks to claim it. Of course just because that’s the plan doesn’t mean it’s going to work out that way.
We have a lot going on this time, from talking about cats, dental work, and even other British shows (sci-fi and otherwise). We even manage to find some time to talk about the story we’re supposed to be reviewing, at least until we bounce off in another direction.
There is very little good (in more ways than one) hiding out in the basement of Torchwood, in this case it happens to be in the form of a half converted cyberwoman… who’s way to sexed up for an emotionless alien monster. That leaves the staff of Torchwood (and us at the podcast) to deal with the mess left behind. And it’s quite the mess…
It’s time to go back to school as the Twelve Doctor goes deep under cover–by changing his jacket–at Clara’s school. Not that his cover is very good, or very believable, or does anything but attract attention. Though with an alien war machine running around (as well as Clara’s boyfriend) running around a little attention goes a long way.
A visit back to The Sarah Jane Adventures this week and a reuniting of Sarah with the Doctor (the Eleventh, this time), UNIT, and the first face-to-face meeting she’s ever had with a previous companion of the Doctor; Jo Jones, née Grant.
Time for a trip to Rome in both the past and future as Quadrigger Stoyn returns, though he’s more than a little bit crazy after so long out on his own. This time he’s up against the Fourth Doctor, Romana and… Romana.
“Double trouble” time as we take a moment to catch up with Jo Grant/Jones who’s finding her past might not be what she remembers, or at least that’s what the strange narrating alien is trying to convince her of. But with the help of one Iris Wildthyme, they are going back to the past to prove that it is how she remembers it, old friends and all…
Sorry, but due to some real life issues that have cropped up, we do not have a show to release this weekend.
We’ll be back next Saturday (May 7), and then keeping to our every-two-weeks schedule from then.
Things are getting uncanny as the Second Doctor, Jamie and Zoe find themselves on a strange planet with oceans made of sand and floating cities. As usual they aren’t alone as Quadrigger Stoyn is with them, and he has been waiting for a very long time for his revenge…
