Classic Rewatch: Planet of Evil

In the world of science fiction, antimatter has been a nearly limitless source of ideas. It can be used to power devices of all kinds, mutate entire ecosystems, rewrite the very timeline, and in extreme cases perhaps even . . . make someone . . . hairy and . . . angry? This week we revisit the fourth Doctor story, The Planet of Evil, and discuss the Doctor and Sarah Jane encountering the predecessor to Zapp Brannigan and Space Force […]

Tiny Rebel Games Discusses Doctor Who: Infinity

We may still be quite some time away from the nebulous time of “Autumn” and this new series of Doctor Who that keeps getting dangled in front of us like the proverbial carrot, but the team at Tiny Rebel Games is taking on the noble work of keeping us covered with new content.

Classic Rewatch: The Dominators

All we wanted was a nice, peaceful island vacation; but then this drilling team shows up and ruins everything. Honestly, though, perhaps we should have expected it. After all, when a world goes to great lengths to establish themselves as completely non-violent, isn’t that just begging for an overtly violent race to come and, well…dominate them? This week, Haley and Jay continue our classic rewatch series and discuss the Second Doctor story, “The Dominators.” From obnoxious robot voices, to explosions, to extensive outerwear that […]

Classic Rewatch: Enemy of the World

Actors playing dual roles in a single production is nothing new to film or television, but sometimes there are performances that are so exemplary, we almost forget that the two identities stem from a single actor. This week, Jay and Haley ponder why Keir’s doppelgänger would kidnap him to Vermont, leaving them to witness Patrick Troughton pulling double duty in the recently rediscovered “Enemy of the World”. We talk about Troughton’s portrayal of Ramon Salamander and the incredibly convoluted story that brings us betrayal, double […]
