Join us as we talk stereotypes, hippies, and charismatic computers, and (with sorrow) say goodbye to a companion that we have really grown to lo…
 
It’s Terry Nation’s Greatest Hits as we discuss Planet of the Daleks – a story where he appears to have put all of his favourite past plot points in a hat, drawn them out at random, and attempted to make a coherent story out of the results! Join us as we keep track of the TerryTropes and discuss, among other things, whether or not this makes for a …
 
This episode, we go on a tour of the galaxy’s finest jail cells, featuring appearances from the Master! Ogrons! A few Daleks! Draconians! And future humanity’s most dictatorial regime to date! It’s a rather grim vision of the future in Frontier in Space! Join us as we keep track of the number of times that the Doctor and Jo are incarcerated, and ge…
 
It’s an unusually low-key story for the Pertwee era, as we handle the classic dual menace of bureaucracy and sock puppets in Carnival of Monsters!

Over the course of the episode, Anthony …

We’re heading off-world for the second time in a season... What is this, the Troughton era!? Actually, no! The Doctor’s just off on another bizarre mission for the Time Lords to help a poor, oppressed species evolve into superbeings because… reasons? Well, whatever the reasons may be, we’ll be talking about them, as we discuss The Mutants! Over the…
 
The Silurians are back, but in aquatic form! And disappointingly called Sea Devils and not Sealurians, because someone decided that they wanted to avoid further scientific inaccuracies. Disappointment over the name of the creatures aside, we spend the episode discussing The Sea Devils - a rollicking adventure that also includes everyone's favourite…
 
We’re off to an alien planet for the first time in Season 9, in The Curse of Peladon, as we head to Peladon, where there’s a bit of a kerfuffle on whether or not the planet should join the Galactic Federation.

It’s guerillas, gorillas, and Daleks, as we kick off Season 9 with Day of the Daleks - a tale of peace conferences, dystopian futures, and bootstrap paradoxes. Will this be the season where the Third Doctor finally comes into his own, or will we continue to struggle with his bad attitude? And will the Production Team finally give poor Jo something …
 
Following the precedent set last year, the Watchers once again gather for a special holiday episode in which they discuss a few Doctor Who-related musical “classics.” Once again guided by our very own Don, we kick things off with Jon Pertwee’s spoken word masterpiece “Who is the Doctor?” Next, we follow that up with “Who’s Who?” by Roberta Tovey (a…
 
We’re finding it tough to believe that we’re already done with another season! And what a Masterful one Season 8 has been. Literally full of the Master! With that in mind, it’s time for our customary season retrospective, as we look back on the height of the UNIT Family™, Roger Delgado’s superb turn as everyone’s favourite villainous Time Lord, and…

It’s a classic tale of occult shenanigans in a small South West England village as the Master dresses up as a vicar, Benton finds himself an on-screen admirer, the Doctor goes hard on the science-vs-magic debate, and Jo is (for some bizarre reason) willing to sacrifice herself for him, even though he’s awful to her for the whole story. It can only …

We’re on alien planet for the first time since The Krotons! It’s corporations vs. colonizers, with an ancient weapon of mass destruction in the background!

Watchers calling Earth... Request immediate listening… Watchers calling Earth… it’s a new episode of Watchers in the Fourth Dimension! And this episode, we’re discussing the most psychedelic, the most glam story so far, as we tangle with The Claws of Axos!

It’s another bonus episode of Watchers in the Fourth Dimension, as the crew discusses the recent animation of The Web of Fear, Episode 3!

Wow! Another season down, and this one has been wrapped up so soon – so, naturally, we’re embarking on our now-obligatory season retrospective. Season 7 was the beginning of a new era for the show – new Doctor, Earthbound storylines, and the consistent involvement of UNIT. What do the Watchers think of this brave new era – does the change in format…
 
We’re turning into green werewolves and bringing on the apocalypse, as we tackle a much-loved Pertwee classic in the shape of the one-and-only Inferno!

In this bonus episode, “Will They, Won’t They?” Anthony and Julie discuss the Second and First Doctor cross-over story from Big Finish - Daughter of the Gods, by David K. Barnes.

This episode, we bring to you our discussion of a story that is, in the eyes of fandom, one of the worst stories of all time.

Will we find it as bad as accepted …

Over the course of our discussion, Julie talks about the Doctor’s obnoxious door-bell et…
 
This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension find that reality is getting too hot anyway, and move outside of the confines of our reality and into a world where they could well become works of fiction. It can only be The Mind Robber! Over the course of our discussion, Julie (of course) has strong feelings about the temporary re-casting of Jam…
 
This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension kick off Season 6 of Doctor Who with a more of a whimper than a bang, as they tackle a story that involves two hostile turtles as they seek to dominate an entire planet of hippies and turn it into a radioactive ball of lava.
