They say that words have power, that’s no more true than when the Word Lord Nobody No-One is around. When he’s around nobody is safe, words becoming reality with just the slip of the tongue, so don’t say anything about no-one or else it will become the truth. To stop him, the Seventh Doctor needs an even more circuitous plan than usual, luckily he has Ace and Hex around to help (whether they like it or not).
Reality and Fiction (or maybe Fiction and Fiction) collide as the Second Doctor, Jamie and Zoe find themselves stepping outside of the universe and into the Land of Fiction. A world populated with a number of fictional characters and one real writer, the TARDIS crew has to find a way out before they end up fictional themselves.
Varos is hardly the most hospitable place to visit, let alone when the Sixth Doctor and Peri need some Zeiton-7 ore to fix the TARDIS. Of course it’s not quite easy to get, more so as the whole place is a former prison planet and run in about the most insane way possible. For the Doctor that just means he needs to perform bit of regime change on the side, for Peri it means gaining a few feathers.
Though various machinations and complicated plotting the Eight Doctor and Charley have found themselves stuck in another universe and trying to find the TARDIS. This isn’t like our universe with no time, giant bug monsters and disembodied voices. Luckily C’rizz is there to help them, and join the crew.
Nobody likes being stuck in traffic and that includes the Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones. Of course they aren’t there by choice, more because of a carjacking (which seem to work the other way around five billion years in the future). Not that a huge motorway filled with enough pollution to block out the sun will stop the Doctor, not where there are giant devolved crabs around.
Even as reality is contriving against us, the Untempered Schism presses on! Maybe a little battered and warn, but still quite good at what we do. In this case we are review The Happiness Patrol, a strange little story featuring way to much killer candy, less then subtitle political subtext and a number of bad jokes and puns. Might not be recommended for those who don’t like sweets.
The Untempered Schism are returning to the sadly short run of the Ninth Doctor as he, Rose and Jack take a side trip to Cardiff (along with Mickey). And while they do get a bit of a vacation, things turn hot when it turns out the Mayor is wearing a familiar face (easy to do when the face is part of a skin suit).

Change is coming to the TARDIS as Romana has been called back to Gallifrey, of course no trip home can be easy and this time is no different as they end up trapped in E-Space (guess the Doctor shouldn’t have let K-9 drive). Once there they run into Marshmen, mind-controlling spiders and Adric… you can pick which one is worse but I think it’s the spiders.
We take time out from rebuilding our server (and by ‘we’ that really mean Jay) to look back at the second Third Doctor adventure. This one really has all the pieces you’ve come to expect, lots of shooting, things blowing up, Bessie and rubbery costumes. All in all a rather fun romp with the Doctor and Doctor Liz Shaw.
The Fifth Doctor and Nyssa have returned, taking the change to do some much needed repairs on the TARDIS at least until they are pulled into another round of messes on Gallifrey. This time the Time Lords are worried about someone stealing the Doctor’s body… so the logical choice is to kill him. At the same time Tegan is running around Amsterdam looking for her cousin, and naturally both of these events are connected.
