Untempered Schism Podcast #169 : Mummy on the Orient Express

There is no such thing like a simple uneventful trip with the Twelfth Doctor and Clara, which is even more true when it’s on a train as famous as the Orient Express (even if it’s a spaceship that just happens to look like a train). With an anonymous mastermind pulling the strings and an evil computer to keep everyone in line, about the only thing anyone on the train could do is find out what the mummy running around really is, before it kills everyone on board.

Untempered Schism Podcast #166 : They Keep Killing Suzie

How many times can one human die? Well unless your name is Jack Harkness, the answer is usually one,  but former Torchwood agent Suzie Costello is going to try. The fact that she is currently dead is actually a key part of her plan, now she just needs to stop being dead. Though, that part is going to require a few more murders…

Untempered Schism Podcast #165 : Victory of the Daleks

Continuing in the same vein as last episode’s The Power of the Daleks, we look at Victory of the Daleks, which has many similar elements. The Eleventh Doctor and Amy return Winston Churchill’s call to them (made at the end of The Beast Below) and are introduced to Professor Bracewell’s Ironsides, which bear a striking resemblance to the Daleks. Little does the Doctor know that the Daleks have a special plan with him right at the centre of it.

Untempered Schism Podcast #164 : The Power of the Daleks

We return to the adventures of the Second Doctor, this time going right back to his very first story. A story that itself has regenerated into an animated production. With Daleks running around pretending to be friendly and submissive, the Doctor acting quite different then his past incarnation, and a pair of very confused companions, it’s was one of the most important stories in the series to that point.

Untempered Schism Podcast #163 : The Mutants

The Third Doctor, currently still exiled to Earth, has to play ‘messenger’ for the Time Lords and deliver a ‘box’ containing something to someone on or around the planet of Solos – on the day they are just about to achieve independence from the Overlords of the Earth Empire in the 30th Century. Of course things don’t go as planned, with the Marshall of the Skybase staging a military coup, Jo getting kidnapped, and the planet’s population slowly turning into bug-like monsters.

Untempered Schism Podcast #162 : Silver Nemesis

Back on Earth and in the (at the time) present day, the Seventh Doctor and Ace are finding themselves in the usual sort of mess dealing with Cybermen, Nazis, time travel witches, living metal and someone who looks a bit like the Queen if you squint a bit. It all adds up to not very much, which is quite a pity considering what it was meant to celebrate.

Untempered Schism Podcast #161 : Kinda

The Fifth Doctor, Tegan and Adric go off to explore a strange alien planet and immediately leave Tegan alone to have her mind infested by a mental monster.  It’s not all fun and games though as the Doctor is being a bit silly and Adric gets to play solider for a little bit. As for Nyssa, she’s spending this adventure sleeping in the TARDIS.

Untempered Schism Podcast #159 : The Keys of Marinus
