This episode sees Andy make a hugely nostalgic trip back to 1983 and his memories of the events that surrounded the first broadcast of this anniversary special. Elsewhere Alex professes her love for the gold transmat device and learns all about the UNIT dating and Series 6b controversies, while Andy reveals his long-term confusion over the relationship between the Game of Rassilon and The War Games.

Episode 61: The Sea Devils

1M ago
This month Andy and Alex tackle the former's 'birth story' The Sea Devils. As usual, the pair find much to enjoy here but have lots of questions too... How can one take a motorbike or walk ten miles over open country between an island and the mainland? What are the ingredients of kai? Is is easy to drive a hovercraft without any training? and What is in Jo's aubergine handbag? They both struggle with Pertwee at his most pompous, and how here the Doctor is not so very different from the stories other privileged establishment white male characters: Trenchard and Walker. They are also disappointe ..read more

Episode 60: Evil of the Daleks

by Doctor Who: the World Enough and Time podcast
2M ago
As Alex and Andy hit 60 episodes they review possibly one of the most bonkers stories in Doctor Who history! The TARDIS is stolen by Leatherman, the Daleks are selling antique victoriana in the 1960s, people keep getting knocked out for no reason and the Daleks are playing trains and making the Doctor dizzy. Yes its Evil of the Daleks! The pair are still at Athelhampton House as they talk about the Daleks denying Victoria her Disney princess moment, problematic Kemel, the incredibly convoluted Dalek-plot to trap the Doctor, and the most unnecessary characters in all of Doctor Who: Arthur Terra ..read more

No touch pod! Andy & Alex are actually on location at Athelhampton House - Harrison Chase's mansion - for this their review of the Tom Baker classic The Seeds of Doom. Specifically this episode of the podcast was recorded at River Cottage, THE 'cottage under siege' where Keeler also transformed into a Krynoid. They find much to enjoy here including the Doctor's anti-establishment behaviour, his wonderful relationship with Sarah - a Doctor and companion team at the very height of their powers, and a wondrous supporting cast including, of course, Tony Beckley, John Challis and Sylvia Colerid ..read more

Episode 58: Death To The Daleks

5M ago
In this month's episode Andy & Alex stick with the 3rd Doctor era and review another story that they know incredibly well due to its early release on VHS: Terry Nation's Death to the Daleks. As well as highlighting their favourite moments, they consider how they felt about the story back in the late Eighties compared to now. As usual they also find themselves asking a lot of questions: - Who compiles the 700 Wonders of the Universe? - Why does Julian Fox (Hamilton) have such huge eyebags? - How would you go about synthesising parrinium? - Does 10 million people really constitute a galaxy-w ..read more

Episode 56: The Ultimate Foe

It’s a far worse thing we do now than we have ever done on the podcast… yes, that’s right, we’re going to review The Ultimate Foe. Revisionist agendas and the recent release of the season on Blu-Ray has done little to persuade Andy & Alex of the value of this pantomime-esque runaround which receives their lowest score yet. Andy is incandescent with rage at the Inquisitor who he argues is the most insane person in the history of the series, while Alex’s fury is reserved for the script by good ol’ Pip n’ Jane. Treasure chests of plastic gold, legs waving in the air, megabyte modems, things t ..read more

Episode 54: The Ark in Space

Hellooooooo! (as an Earth high minister might say to the survivors of an apocalypse). This month Andy & Alex are sat back on tranquiller couches taking condign action as they marvel at the glory that is The Ark in Space. As well as uncovering information that is new to them, such as the fact that Vira was originally meant to be a POC and Nerva's menfolk were intended to be in short shorts, they take a nostalgic sojourn through moments from a story they have known and loved for the past 30 plus years. Andy traces his 90's chauvinism to the phrase 'Good girl Sarah!', while Alex just loves Ha ..read more

Episode 53: Frontios

Andy and Alex are still together in Auckland so in a 'High Cockalorum' mood. Will 1983's Frontios prove to be downer? After sharing their new Myers-Briggs types and a story titles quiz that quite frankly stumps them, the pair get into it. They find much to enjoy here, especially Janet's pleather mini and the opening TARDIS scene, but it's not long before gender inequality, script and direction and a sudden obsession with the non-interference of Timelords start to colour their view. They have lots of important questions too... - Is the Doctor's relationship with Tegan abusive? - Why is the stor ..read more

1y ago
In this first episode of 2023 - Happy New Year! - Andy and Alex are reunited in Auckland, New Zealand and finally sit side-by-side again while watching and podding about Who. They choose a cosy favourite - Elisabeth Sladen’s swansong The Hand of Fear. But will the story live up to the pressure of being the first they’ve watched together since 2019? Alex is quick to question whether Watson should be shouting the odds and whether he’ll keep his job after the, erm, 'firing missiles at a nuclear reactor' incident, while Andy is amazed that Kastrian electrics are good enough to last 150 million yea ..read more

Episode 51: Inferno

by Doctor Who: the World Enough and Time podcast
1y ago
Is it hot in here or are we just in a parallel universe? Andy & Alex uncover sexual metaphor aplenty as they grab Greg’s huge pipe, experience a dodgy flange, and get all angry (and hairy) as they reach Penetration Zero. To say nothing of Benton drilling his troops. Yes, its Inferno, that highly-regarded Season 7 story which warns of the dangers of fracking, patriarchal arrogance, and of smearing green goo on your face. The pair agree that there is much to enjoy here but both declare that unlike parallel Liz, Greg and Petra they wouldn’t risk their lives to save parallel Andy and Alex. As ..read more
