Classic Rewatch: The Android Invasion

We’ve all been there. You greet your neighbor in the yard, parking lot, or corridor, you strike up a conversation — or at least, attempt to — and the next thing you know, they’re grappling with you on the floor, trying to choke the life out of you, and their face falls off to reveal a mass of wires, servos, and googly eyes. If you had a nickel for every time, right?

This week, Jay is out of the studio (or IS he?) as the rest of us learn to trust no one in ‘The Android Invasion’. We’re 90% certain we’re watching Doctor Who and not Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but this is a Terry Nation script, so who can be certain? Haley remarks on the quality of special effects (when viewed on a smartphone screen), and Keir struggles with what proves to be John Levene’s last full appearance as Benton, but fails to be given the exit that is truly deserved.
