    We've reached the end of the Graham Williams Era, and before we go off to have a relaxing one-month break in a nearby parallel universe, we have just enough time to discuss Shada, the sadly uncompleted keystone of the last three years of Doctor Who. Tea, anyone?

    Buy the story!

    Odd and unsatisfactory versions of this story were released on DVD in 2013. In the US, as usual, it was released on its own (Amazon US), whereas in the UK it was one of two discs in the Legacy Collection box set, along with the 1993 documentary More than Thirty Years in the TARDIS. (Amazon UK)

    However, it doesn't end there. In 2012, a novelisation of Shada was released, written by Doctor Who writer and Season 17 fan Gareth Roberts. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK) (Amazon AU). There's also an audiobook, read by Lalla Ward. (Audible US) (Audible UK) (Audible AU)

    Notes and links

    Godel Escher Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid by Douglas Hofstadter was published in 1979, and was wildly loved by just the sort of people who might stumble upon an ancient book of Gallifreyan lore in the study of some old Cambridge professor. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)

    The Star Wars Holiday Special first screened around Christmas 1978, and is perhaps the most horrific thing ever to screen on television. Despite George Lucas's relentless attempts to suppress it, it can be viewed in its entirety on YouTube. But, really, just don't.

    The Somebody Else's Problem field is "a cheap, easy, and staggeringly useful way of safely protecting something from unwanted eyes", by exploiting our natural tendency to ignore things that we just don't want to think about.

    And here's a video of the destruction of a washing machine by putting a brick in it. Turn down your sound before watching this.

    Fans of ruthlessly mocking pompous homophobic lackwits will enjoy these Amazon reviews of Cory Bernardi's absurdly jejune magnum opus The Conservative Revolution.

    Picks of the Week Nathan

    Nathan just picked a whole heap of stuff that we've mentioned in the last few episodes of the podcast. There are links to Gareth Roberts's novelisation of Shada above; James Goss's novelisation of City of Death was released by BBC Books in 2015. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)

    Paul Cornell's collection of fanzine articles, Licence Denied, is out of print.

    Richard

    The Mortdecai Trilogy by Kyril Bonfiglioli is a series of comic novels recounting the adventures of a dissolute art dealer.

    Brendan

    Douglas Adams's novel Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency shamelessly recycles many of the ideas in both City of Death and Shada. It's great. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)

    Our flight finally reaches the end of the 1970s, only to run out of hymetusite and crash ignominiously into The Horns of Nimon.

    Buy the story!

    The Horns of Nimon was released on DVD in 2010. It was released by itself in the US (Amazon US), but in the UK it was released along with The Time Monster and Underworld in the rightfully unloved Myths and Legends box set (Amazon UK).

    Notes and links

    Here's South Australian Senator Cory Bernardi drawing an irrefutable link between marriage equality and marrying your dog.

    Fans of the Nimon (and who isn't?) will enjoy the Big Finish Eighth Doctor audio Seasons of Fear by Paul Cornell.

    Once again, we mention Licence Denied, which was a collection of fan writing edited by Paul Cornell first published in 1997. Notable essays include Tom the Second, Gareth Roberts's defence of the Williams Era, and Why the Nimon Should Be Our Friends, by Phillip J. Gray.

    And here's is Shaun Micallef interviewing Jack Tiger Adams, for some reason.

    So, we've all taken several hits of vraxoin, which means that we really enjoyed this week's story, in spite of the sets, the script, most of the performances and the ham-fisted anti-drugs message. It's Nightmare of Eden!

    Buy the story!

    Nightmare of Eden was released on DVD as recently as 2012. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)

    Notes and links

    In 1983, First Lady Nancy Reagan was in the throes of her Just Say No campaign, in which she made numerous television appearances warning the American people about the dangers of drugs. Horrifically, she guested on an episode of Diff'rent Strokes in order to patronise Gary Coleman's entire class.

    Fans of the fabulous model work in this story, along with everyone else, will enjoy the Blakes 7 episode Gold. (It's worth mentioning at this point that Blakes 7 is now available on YouTube in its entirety. So why are you wasting your time on this podcast, for God's sake?)

    Amii Stewart's 1979 music video for her hit single Knock On Wood has nearly many psychedelic video effects as this story's Episode 3 cliffhanger.

    In 1980, Lalla Ward played Ophelia in the BBC Season of Shakespeare's version of Hamlet. Hamlet himself was played by Derek Jacobi, Doctor Who's very own Professor Yana. (We love Lalla, but she's really terrible in this.)

    Bondfinger has just released its Casino Royale (1967) commentary, but, to be honest, you'll need to take a lot of vraxoin in order to get through that film.

  • Crushed with Disappointment

    Episode Duration: 41 minutes and 33 seconds

    This week, Brendan, Richard and Nathan tackle City of Death, by Douglas Adams and Graham Williams. How many superlatives can fit in a single 40-minute podcast episode?

    Buy the story!

    City of Death was released on DVD in 2005. Seriously, if you don't have a copy, just buy it. At once. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)

    Notes and links

    We've uploaded some photos from Brendan's Facebook album Toys on Tour, which is the best place to go to see a plastic Tom Baker crawling up the gate to the Galerie Denise Rene in Paris.

    After Hitch Hiker's and Doctor Who, Douglas Adams wrote two novels featuring holistic detective Dirk Gently, which reused elements from City of Death and Shada. Those novels were Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (1987) and The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul (1988). They're very good.

    Ken Grieve, with whom Douglas Adams went to Paris for lunch that one time, was the director of Destiny of the Daleks.

    We talked about Cornell, Day and Topping's The Discontinuity Guide a couple of weeks ago. Here's their take on City of Death.

    Peter Cook and Dudley Moore's [weird spoof version of The Hound of the Baskervilles](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hound_of_the_Baskervilles_(1978_film)) was released in 1978. It just sounds amazing!

    When she wasn't busy helping her husband to steal the Mona Lisa, Catherine Schell appeared in the second season of Space: 1999 as Maya, a shape-changing alien from the planet Psychon. It's really much worse than you could possibly imagine.

    Fans of erudite discussions of art, scarcity and authenticity will enjoy Elizabeth Sandifer's take on this story from TARDIS Eruditorum.

    For two years, from 1911 to 1913, the Mona Lisa was no longer in the Louvre: it was hidden in a trunk in Vincenzo Peruggia's apartment after he entered the Louvre, hid it under his smock and made off with it. See, we're educational as well as entertaining.

    Captain Tancredi's bodyguard is played by Peter Halliday, who won our hearts in his role as Packer in The Invasion.

    Romana's naughty schoolgirl outfit seems to be inspired by the St Trinian's film series in the 50s and 60s. Another inspiration might be Madeline, the heroine of a series of children's books written by Austrian author Ludwig Bemelmans in the 1950s and 60s.

    Licence Denied was a collection of fan writing edited by Paul Cornell and first published in 1997. It is, sadly, out of print. Notable essays include Tom the Second, Gareth Roberts's defence of the Williams Era, and Why the Nimon Should Be Our Friends, by Phillip J. Gray. And no, you can't borrow my copy.

  • Episode 63 Crushed with Disappointment

    25 January 2016 (12:14am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 41 minutes and 33 seconds

    This week, Brendan, Richard and Nathan tackle City of Death, by Douglas Adams and Graham Williams. How many superlatives can fit in a single 40-minute podcast episode?

    Buy the story!

    City of Death was released on DVD in 2005. Seriously, if you don't have a copy, just buy it. At once. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)

    Notes and links

    We've uploaded some photos from Brendan's Facebook album Toys on Tour, which is the best place to go to see a plastic Tom Baker crawling up the gate to the Galerie Denise Rene in Paris.

    After Hitch Hiker's and Doctor Who, Douglas Adams wrote two novels featuring holistic detective Dirk Gently, which reused elements from City of Death and Shada. Those novels were Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (1987) and The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul (1988). They're very good.

    Ken Grieve, with whom Douglas Adams went to Paris for lunch that one time, was the director of Destiny of the Daleks.

    We talked about Cornell, Day and Topping's The Discontinuity Guide a couple of weeks ago. Here's their take on City of Death.

    Peter Cook and Dudley Moore's [weird spoof version of The Hound of the Baskervilles](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hound_of_the_Baskervilles_(1978_film)) was released in 1978. It just sounds amazing!

    When she wasn't busy helping her husband to steal the Mona Lisa, Catherine Schell appeared in the second season of Space: 1999 as Maya, a shape-changing alien from the planet Psychon. It's really much worse than you could possibly imagine.

    Fans of erudite discussions of art, scarcity and authenticity will enjoy Philip Sandifer's take on this story from TARDIS Eruditorum.

    For two years, from 1911 to 1913, the Mona Lisa was no longer in the Louvre: it was hidden in a trunk in Vincenzo Peruggia's apartment after he entered the Louvre, hid it under his smock and made off with it. See, we're educational as well as entertaining.

    Captain Tancredi's bodyguard is played by Peter Halliday, who won our hearts in his role as Packer in The Invasion.

    Romana's naughty schoolgirl outfit seems to be inspired by the St Trinian's film series in the 50s and 60s. Another inspiration might be Madeline, the heroine of a series of children's books written by Austrian author Ludwig Bemelmans in the 1950s and 60s.

    Licence Denied was a collection of fan writing edited by Paul Cornell and first published in 1997. It is, sadly, out of print. Notable essays include Tom the Second, Gareth Roberts's defence of the Williams Era, and Why the Nimon Should Be Our Friends, by Phillip J. Gray. And no, you can't borrow my copy.

  • Episode 62 Circuit Boards Glued to a Piece of Wood

    Episode Duration: 50 minutes and 22 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's the start of an exciting new season of Doctor Who. Terry Nation's back and Mary Tamm isn't, but we still manage to pull ourselves together long enough to discuss Destiny of the Daleks.

    Buy the story!

    Destiny of the Daleks was released on DVD in 2007/2008. That was simple. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)

    Notes and links

    In 1980, Tom and Lalla recorded a series of Australian ads for minicomputer company Prime Computer. These are available as a DVD extra on the Destiny DVD, but you can also see them on YouTube.

    In 1979, Tom recorded a series of three ads for conservation group Keep Australia Beautiful. You can see a terrible videotape copy of two of these on YouTube as well.

    The nightmarish scenario of wars run by computer will later be taken up by Matthew Broderick in War Games (1983), which you are all too young to remember. Damn you.

    Star Trek's Wil Wheaton interviews Doctor Who's Jenna Coleman and Peter Capaldi on the Series 9 DVD and Blu-ray releases. You can watch some short excerpts from that interview here and here.

    Nowadays, the word meme tends to refer to photographs of cats with hilarious writing superimposed on them. However, it was originally coined by Lalla Ward's husband Richard Dawkins to refer to a unit of culture which spreads through imitation.

    Chaos on the Bridge is a 2014 documentary written and produced by William Shatner, chronicling the first few difficult years of Star Trek: The Next Generation. It's available on Netflix, and you can rent or buy it on Vimeo.

    Mark Michalowski's short story [The Lying Old Witch in the Wardrobe](http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/The_Lying_Old_Witch_in_the_Wardrobe_(short_story)) was published in 2003 as part of Big Finish's anthology Short Trips: Companions. It explains -- whimsically -- why Romana regenerates at the start of this story, and suggests that the Romana we see here is not exactly who we expect her to be.

    The impasse faced by two perfectly logical computer opponents is an outworking of game theory, used by mathematician John von Neumann to model, among other things, the interactions between the US and the USSR in the Cold War.

    The same impasse is also the basis of the short story Fool's Mate, first published in Astounding Science Fiction in March 1953. In this story, two computerised battle fleets are frozen, unable to attack one another, until one decides to put its attack strategy under the control of a complete madman. Which just goes to show, really.

    It's the final story of the Key to Time season, whose story wheezes and groans to a halt in The Armageddon Factor. Meanwhile, Brendan, Nathan and Todd have a lovely time praising Mary, dissing everything else, and answering that pressing question: what did we think of Doctor Who's first ever season-long arc?

    Buy the story!

    And now, for the last time: In the US, you can buy The Armageddon Factor by itself (Amazon US), or as part of the Key to Time box set (Amazon US). In the UK, it's only available as part of the Key to Time box set. (Amazon UK)

    Notes and links

    We've referred to Cornell, Day and Topping's The Discontinuity Guide before. It's out of print, buy you can still buy for your Kindle (Amazon US) (Amazon UK) (Amazon AU). The text of the book is reproduced on the old BBC Cult Doctor Who website, which is pretty hard to get to these days, but I have at least managed to find their take on The Armageddon Factor ("the whole thing is very uninvolving").

    Charmingly, Brendan thinks that K9 sounds like Lambert the Sheepish Lion (1952).

    Davyd Harries, who plays posh idiot sidekick Shapp, is also fairly horrifying as Vila's hilarious bluebeard pal Doran in the horrifying Blakes 7 episode Moloch, written by Blakes 7's resident horrifying misogynist Ben Steed.

    Fans of the entire contents of the Bristol Boys' kitchen drawers will enjoy Dave Martin's entry in the Make Your Own Adventure series, Search for the Doctor, which features the Sixth Doctor, K9, Drax and Omega.

    Picks of the Week Brendan

    This week, Brendan has decided not to pick the Big Finish The Key 2 Time series, which consists of The Judgement of Isskar, The Destroyer of Delights and The Chaos Pool, and stars Peter Davison as the Doctor. He has also decided not to pick Graceless, an entire Big Finish series which serves as a sequel to The Key 2 Time, and which has now run for three whole series.

    Instead, he's picked The Auntie Matter, a Big Finish full-cast audio drama starring Tom Baker and Mary Tamm.

    Todd

    Todd has picked one of the Big Finish Companion Chronicles, The Stealers from Saiph, which is read by Mary Tamm.

    Nathan

    Nathan has picked The AV Club, which is a sister site to satirical newspaper The Onion, and is the home of some of the best writing on pop culture on the internet. He particularly recommends the reviews of the Classic Series written by Christopher Bahn.

    Bondfinger will return in Casino Royale (1967). Until then, you can enjoy our first five commentary tracks: You Only Live Twice (1967), Thunderball (1965), Goldfinger (1964), From Russia With Love (1963), and Dr. No (1962).

    In this fart-astic episode of Flight Through Entirety, our search for the fifth segment of the Key to Time takes us to the third moon of Delta Magna where we confront The Power of Kroll.

    Buy the story!

    Same as last time, really: In the US, you can buy The Power of Kroll by itself (Amazon US), or as part of the Key to Time box set (Amazon US). In the UK, it's only available as part of the Key to Time box set. (Amazon UK)

    Notes and links

    Not many links this week. (There's an appalling dearth of references to German Expressionism in our discussion.) So to pass the time while listening to this episode, why not read a review of The Power of Kroll from the AV Club website? And for once, there's no need to avoid the comments thread.

    This is Philip Madoc's last performance in Doctor Who. He passed away in 2012. You can read his obituary in The Guardian.

    Todd is puzzled by the idea of feeding Krollfarts to the hapless population of Delta Magna. What he didn't know was that bacteria actually can be used to convert methane to proteins. Fact fans will enjoy this article on the topic.

    Nathan is currently spending a few weeks in Tokyo, re-enacting key scenes from You Only Live Twice. As a result, Bondfinger is taking a break in January, so our commentary track on Casino Royale (1967) will be delayed until the start of February.

    If there was ever any doubt that Brendan is a young man of exceptional taste and discernment, this episode finally lays it to rest with the revelation that his favourite Doctor Who story ever is The Androids of Tara!

    Notes and links

    Famously, The Androids of Tara is shamelessly ripped off a loving tribute to Anthony Hope's popular 1894 novel The Prisoner of Zenda. You can read it here.

    We've mentioned the fanzine Cottage Under Siege before: it was edited by Neil Corry and Gareth Roberts and published in 1993-1994. Again, please, please, please contact us if you know where we can get copies of it.

    You can read the summery and charming discussion of The Androids of Tara from Cornell, Day and Topping's The Discontinuity Guide at the old BBC Cult website.

    Cousins to the Taran wood beast, the Links in the Blakes 7 episode Terminal held a terrible secret to the future of all of mankind. While looking amazingly silly.

    Fans of Peter Jeffrey's Count Grendel of Gracht will also enjoy his turn as a villain in the Avengers episode, Game.

    Declan Mulholland, who plays Till in The Androids of Tara played a humanoid Jabba the Hutt in a deleted scene from the original Star Wars (1977).

    The Bechdel Test was originally proposed in this comic strip in 1985. But how often does Doctor Who pass the Bechdel test?

    Notes and links

    For the first time ever, Brendan was wrong about something. When auditioning to replace the divine Miss Rigg in The Avengers, Susan Engel didn't act against Moray Laing, the current editor of Doctor Who Adventures magazine. It was actually Moray Watson, who played Sir Robert Muir in Black Orchid.

    Fortunately, Nathan was also wrong about Beatrix Lehmann -- she went on to appear twice more on screen, in the film The Cat and the Canary (1978) and the miniseries Crime and Punishment (1979).

    Evelyn Smythe was one of the Sixth Doctor's companions in the main Big Finish series of Doctor Who audios.

    And in other things that Nathan is wrong about, Gareth Roberts's comic strip about sentient sand that attacks people was actually written by Paul Cornell and called Seaside Rendezvous, published in DWM's 1991 Summer Special.

    It's the start of a new season, and Brendan, Nathan and Todd are sent on a mission from God to find six hidden podcast episodes, that, when assembled, form hours and hours of tiresome commentary on Season 16 of Doctor Who. First stop: The Ribos Operation.

    Buy the story!

    Okay, this one's complicated. In 2002, The Ribos Operation was released on DVD exclusively in the US both individually and as part of a Key to Time box set. In 2007, there was a limited edition box set released in the UK and Australia, which was then released more generally in 2009. You can read all about that on the Wikipedia page, if you're interested. The upshot of all this is that in the US you can buy The Ribos Operation by itself (Amazon US) or as part of a box set (Amazon US). In the UK, it's only available as part of a box set. (Amazon UK)

    Notes and links

    Ian Marter's novelisation of this story is available as an audiobook read by John Leeson. (Audible US) (Audible UK) (Audible AU)

  • Episode 56 He Positioned the Sausage Wrongly

    6 December 2015 (11:47pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 38 minutes and 53 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's the start of a new season, and Brendan, Nathan and Todd are sent on a mission from God to find six hidden podcast episodes, that, when assembled, form hours and hours of tiresome commentary on Season 16 of Doctor Who. First stop: The Ribos Operation.

    Buy the story!

    Okay, this one's complicated. In 2002, The Ribos Operation was released on DVD exclusively in the US both individually and as part of a Key to Time box set. In 2007, there was a limited edition box set released in the UK and Australia, which was then released more generally in 2009. You can read all about that on the Wikipedia page, if you're interested. The upshot of all this is that in the US you can buy The Ribos Operation by itself (Amazon US) or as part of a box set (Amazon US). In the UK, it's only available as part of a box set. (Amazon UK)

    Notes and links

    Ian Marter's novelisation of this story is available as an audiobook read by John Leeson. (Audible US) (Audible UK) (Audible AU)

    Here is a Season 16 publicity photo of Mary and Tom with a giant sticking plaster on his lip after Paul Seed's dog bit his face.

    As Season 15 limps towards its inevitable conclusion, we discover a new trope, reflect on the possibilities of Sevateem-Gallifreyan romance, and deplore the indefensible cruelty of horse racing: it's The Invasion of Time!

    Buy the story!

    The Invasion of Time was released on DVD in 2008. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK). It was also released in Australia and the UK as part of the Bred for War box set, along with the other Classic Series Sontaran stories. (Amazon UK)

    Gallifreyan hippy Presta is played by Gai Waterhouse, a famously wealthy Sydney horse trainer.

    Fabulous posh air-traffic controller Rodan moonlights as a giant red pterodactyl thing who attacks Godzilla in various Japanese movies, while Castellan Spandrell moonlights as a supporting architectural feature in various Gothic cathedrals.

    In the Sarah Jane Adventures story [The Last Sontaran](http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/The_Last_Sontaran_(TV_story)), Chrissie Jackson fabulously disables a Sontaran by hitting its probic vent with her high-heeled shoe.

    Episode Duration: 35 minutes and 57 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Underworld just might be the worst Doctor Who story of the 1970s, which is why we spend this episode discussing Hellenistic epic, orgies in Diana Dors's house, and the reason why you might choose to wear a bag on your head. Enjoy!

    Buy the story!

    Underworld was released on DVD in 2010. In the US, it was released on its own (Amazon US), while in the UK and Australia it was part of the rightfully unloved Myths and Legends box set. (Amazon UK)

    Notes and links

    Fans of things with real literary merit -- unlike Underworld -- will enjoy the Argonautica by Apollonius of Rhodes, which tells the story of the quest for the Golden Fleece and the romance between Jason and Medea.

    Fans of things that are interesting -- unlike Underworld -- will enjoy this lurid account in the Daily Mail of the orgies that went on in the home of British film star Diana Dors, as told by her son Jason Dors-Lake.

    Fans of things that are crap but enjoyable -- unlike Underworld -- will enjoy these high-concept traditional SF series: the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov, and the Lensman series by E. E. "Doc" Smith. (The Foundation series is discussed in a recent episode of the brilliant nerd-culture podcast The Incomparable.)

    Fans of amusing and inventive science fiction -- you know what I'm going to say next -- will enjoy Bea Arthur as the fem-puter in the 2001 Futurama episode Amazon Women in the Mood.

    This week, we head off into the far future of the distant planet Pluto (yes, we know, shut up), to liberate humanity from the Company, in The Sun Makers. Hey Cordo, don't bogart the pentocyleinicmethylhydrane, man.

    Buy the story!

    The Sun Makers was released on DVD in 2009. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)

    Notes and links

    William Simons, who plays sub-Blakean rebel leader Mandrell in this story, is more famous for his role in ITV period police drama series Heartbeat, playing Alf Ventress.

    The Company takes Marx's phrase "opiate of the masses" quite literally, drugging its oppressed population to keep them compliant. The Federation will adopt a similar tactic in Season 4 of Blakes 7, using the drug Pylene 50.

    Hooray! It's the long-awaited return of German Expressionism.

    Richard points out the similarities between this story and The Space Merchants, a 1952 novel by Frederik Pohl and Cyril M. Kornbluth. It's still in print. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)

    Richard also points out the story's many visual references to Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1927).

    How long since we last referenced Susan Sontag's 1964 essay Notes on Camp? Far too long, if you ask me.

    Henry Woolf, the Collector in this story, had already appeared in Eric Idle's sketch comedy show Rutland Weekend Television. You can see him with Idle in this sketch, called Gibberish. He also appeared in BBC children's programme Words and Pictures. Watch him here, he's delightful.

    After the credits, we chat briefly about the Big Finish Blakes 7 audio series, The Liberator Chronicles.

    Brendan, Richard and Nathan are menaced, drugged and tied up, which means it's either a normal Saturday night or the rather spectacular Image of the Fendahl.

    Image of the Fendahl was released on DVD in 2009. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK)

    Notes and links

    Ma Tyler is played by Daphne Heard, who was Peter Bowles's mother Mrs Polouvicka in 70s/80s sitcom To The Manor Born. Here's the first episode.

    We've mentioned him before, but H. P. Lovecraft was a twentieth-century racist and horror writer, who popularised the idea that the world is hideously haunted by nightmarish creatures from beyond the dawn of time. His most famous short story is The Call of Cthulhu.

    Fans of nightmarish creatures from beyond the dawn of time will enjoy Quatermass and the Pit, a BBC television programme from 1959 featuring, um, nightmarish creatures from beyond the dawn of time.

    The Stone Tape was a 1972 television play by the author of Quatermass, about, you know, totally scary things. It's available on YouTube. You can also find a recent radio version, starring the lovely Jane Asher, here.

    Sapphire and Steel was a crazily fascinating and boring ITV science fiction series from the 1970s and 80s, starring Joanna Lumley and David McCallum. And, of course, there's a Big Finish version of the series, but it can't be found anywhere on their website for rights reasons, probably.

    Should we mock the 70s? Do let's. Here's a link to the website of Erich von Daniken, who believed that human culture was totally influenced by aliens.

    And while we're mocking the 70s, you might enjoy Desmond Morris's The Naked Ape and Manwatching.

    Survivors is a hilarious 1970s TV series, written by Terry Nation, in which a horrible plague wipes out everyone except Dennis Lill, his moustache, and a small number of other middle class people. But at least Patrick Troughton is in an episode.

    The terribly handsome actor who plays Stael in this story also plays Carnell in the Blakes 7 episode Weapon. He goes on to reprise his role in a totally-not-Big-Finish series of audio dramas by Magic Bullet Productions.

    Episode Duration: 36 minutes and 38 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    This week, Brendan, Nathan and Richard enjoy the worst prawn cocktail of the entire 1970s: it's The Invisible Enemy.

    Buy the story!

    The Invisible Enemy was released on DVD in 2008 as part of the K9 Tales box set, which also includes the execrable 1981 Christmas spin-off K9 and Company. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK).

    Notes and links

    We're still in the middle of Doctor Who's Blakes 7 years, and so the terrible cardboard corridor they fly down in Part 1 looks like an extremely low-rent version of the already fairly low-rent Xenon Base in Blakes 7 Season 4.

    Roger Dean is an artist famous for his 70s prog-rock album covers, particularly for the band Yes. The picture Richard mentions is the cover of a Lighthouse album called One Fine Day. You can enjoy more of Dean's work on his website, including images he used as evidence when he sued James Cameron for (allegedly) shamelessly ripping him off in Avatar.

    Our new work of the week is arcology, which is an "ideal integrated city within a massive vertical structure". Fans of arcologies will enjoy the work of architect Paolo Soleri, as well as the snazzy headquarters of the crew of Thunderbirds 2086.

    As always, the world is ending, even in the 1970s, and so it's time to mention Paul Ehrlich's The Population Bomb, as well that indispensible condiment Soylent Green (1973).

    I can never stop posting this link to pictures of the chimp-in-a-robot-dog-suit Muffet from the 1970s series of Battlestar Galactica. And if you enjoyed that, you might also enjoy this video of the cute robots Huey, Dewey and Louis from Silent Running (1972).

    Fans of having a shrunken Raquel Welch injected into their bloodstream should seek urgent medical attention.
