    "Top layer, if you want to say a few words."

    Ooh that 12th / 14th / 271st Doctor is a silver-tongued charmer, isn't he?

    Perhaps being poked into a mental Dalek has upset his equilibrium? Or maybe not. Who knows? Who nose? etc. etc.

    So Jim and Martin go Into The Dalek and try to discover why the Doctor looks so sheepish, if Clara's was a happy slap, what makes punters qualify for Missy's Heaven and if random words do a character name make.

    Listen to their aimless pontifications here.

    "And don't look in that mirror. It's absolutely furious!"

    Peter Capaldi is the Doctor and Jim and Martin escape their Classic Who bonds to observe him in his inaugural outing, Deep Breath.

    It's a Victorian melodrama, featuring a newly-coatless tramp, two attack eyebrows, some amazingly tolerant Londoners and the only restaurant with a negative Michelin star count.

    Is age just a number? Does offing a clockwork robot count as homocide? And is Murray Gold really playing a kazoo?

    Find out here. Maybe.

    "Clever. Clever. Clever."

    Well, if the Cybermen are that bloomin' clever, they'd target the more body-conscious members of The Moonbase crew with their veiny virus too.

    Never mind, the silver giants have plenty more plans up their practice golfball-studded sleeves and this spells trouble for the internationally-branded Boyz N The Base.

    But they reckon without Gollum Doctor, a lead-swinging Jamie, Polly the Barista, and Ben "Know-it-all" Jackson.

    Will the Cybermen be able to cope with the gravity of the situation? Just what will fire extinguishers look like in 2070 AD? And is Dr Evans the most active dead man in history?

    "You may be a doctor but I'm the Doctor – the definite article you might say."

     

    A statement of intent from the fresh and dewy Tom Baker in his first ever story, Robot.

    As well as being introduced to the boggle-eyed Bohemian, we continue the Adventures of Sarah Jane Smith, politely clap Benton's latest promotion and discover what the Brig does with his car keys (and more) at the weekends.

    If that wasn't exciting enough, we also meet a crazy-haired professor, an unusually silent politician, a camp Neo-Nazi and Dennis Waterman's Hitlerian ex-wife – not to mention the limp-wristed tin man of the title.

    So does the first Bakerian era start with a big bang or a wimpy whimper? Listen in to find out what Jim and Martin make of it all.

    "This fellow's bright green apparently. And dead."

     

    What's that you say? Green? And, more importantly, dead? This must be the 1973 Jon Pertwee quorn-clogged classic, The Green Death, then.

     

    Wherein the Doctor escapes from Metebelis III and seeks comfort in some cosplay while Jo finds love, the Brig finds a dinner suit at the bottom of his overnight bag and Mike Yates finds the true inner peace that only BOSS's brainwashing can bring.

     

    The miners display the survival instincts of lemmings, Dai and Fell fulfill their nominal destinies and Stevens reveals the new staff perk for Global Chemicals employees – a fully equipped S&M dungeon.

     

    Throw in some horrific maggots and some horrifically bad special effects and you have something of a great big melting pot – of "delicious" fungus soup.

     

     

    So is this a case of "there's lovely"? Listen in and find out.

    "Lord Niiiimon… it is I, Soldeed…"

    Words to strike terror into every self-respecting Doctor Who fan.

    Yes, Jim and Martin scrape the very bottom of the cavernous Who barrel this time and confront The Horns of Nimon.

    The budget is low but the camp is oh-so-very high. Tom Baker and Graham Crowden compete to bite the biggest chunks out of the unimpressive scenery, accompanied by the wrong Romana and the incorrect K9, while Janet Ellis longs desperately for her Blue Peter job offer to come through the post.

    Marvel as trained dancers balance enormous bull masks on their heads and themselves on their ludicrous platform shoes. Gasp as the co-pilot flaps his jowls like a demented bloodhound. Consider suicide as Crowden and Baker have the time of their lives, at the expense of the production and its tormented viewers.

    But is it so bad it's good? Or is it so bad that it'll split your trousers?

    "You can't mend people!"

    Well tell that to a doctor - Who or otherwise.

    And the Kinda can mend doolally folk too, turning them from sociopaths to simpletons by simply opening a box. A bit like Deal or No Deal in reverse.

    But is Kinda a box of delights or one of Pandora's old cast-offs?

    Well, Nyssa's barely in it so that's a promising start but Adric's face freaks Martin out, the presence of both Nerys Hughes and multiple Tegans sends Jim into a priapic frenzy and a moccasin-faced local keeps spouting spiritual riddles.

    The Doctor is an idiot, Tegan has narcolepsy and Adric keeps trying to twok the TSS. Couple that with a jester who badly needs his puppet (and more) stamped on, an effete bloke from That's Life roaring like a frightened vole and the Universe's least enticing bouncy castle and you have something of a mixed bag.

    But, when it comes to Kinda fans, are Jim and Martin among the We or the Not-We?

    "The events will happen, just as they are written. I'm afraid so and we can't stem the tide. But at least we can stop being carried away with the flood!"

    And there's a veritable flood of unexpected stars in the Season One closer, The Reign of Terror.

    Rowan Atkinson captures the younger three-quarters of the TARDIS team, while Jonny Vegas bangs them up. Bill Murray busts them out only for Ian to nearly come a cropper at the hands of Rentaghost's Mr Meaker, who himself has another bust in mind when it comes to Babs.

    And an extra gets his moment in the sun too - quite literally - as William Hartnell's Lime Grove-inspired agoraphobia prevents him from indulging in a spot of location filming.

    The first Doctor's old body may already be wearing thin after walking all the way to Paris but he looks as robust as Charles Atlas next to his galactically feeble granddaughter Susan, who does more to imperil the time travellers than either First Deputy Robespierre or the last-past-the-post Traitor Party.

    But even in 1794 or 1964, nothing is black and white, so who's right and who's wrong? Robespierre or Renan? Barbara or Ian? Jim or Martin?

    And lo... animated gargoyle, Bok, was treated to several speedy ales at Ye Olde Cloven Hoofe tavern, a far preferable fate than a dance with Mike Yates.

    Yes, it's the 1971 occult classic, The Daemons - a satanic saga of a renegade reverend, a vile verger, tiresome TV chaps and a reticule-swinging spinster.

    Yates and Benton are wearing civvies, Jo's wearing a sacrificial robe and the Doctor's just wearing.

    Who is the Brig's bedfellow? Just what does Garvin get up to with ferrets? And has there ever been a valid justification for Morris Dancing?

    "It's the end... but the moment has been prepared for."

    The final words of the boggle-eyed mentalist octogenarian Tom Baker, just prior to being trampled by a crusty ballet dancer and so triggering his metamorphosis into the world's wettest vet.

    Jim and Martin start this episode by skewering The Time of the Doctor but then evaluate another regeneration story, 1981's Logopolis.

    The fourth Doctor is old and grumpy and the Master is new and campy, while Adric "wunts" to help, Tegan wants to fly and Nyssa just wants to have fun, despite losing her step mother, father and planet in short order.

    Can Noel Edmonds keep the fabric of the Universe together? Can the Doctor's plan to literally flush out the Master be any more ludicrous? And can Anthony Ainley make any more of a meal of pressing a button?

    Recently exhumed six-parter, The Enemy of the World, is the tale of a Hancock-alumnus with rant-management problems, a shouty youth with claustrophobia and a wet girlfriend, and a jug-eared sociopath who has his hair chewed rather than cut.

    The Doctor, meanwhile, is wearing his hair in a new way, Jamie is wearing a gimp suit and Victoria is just wearing.

    Did the helicopters, hovercrafts and most pointless piece of machinery in Who history blow our minds or just the budget?

    So there you have it, time travel technology explained in a nutshell.

    Yes, it’s An Unearthly Child - the first ever four episodes of a wee programme called Doctor Who. We give it six months, if it’s lucky…

    It’s a grimy old saga that begins with a foggy junkyard, a crafty old weasel and a police box that’s ALIVE!

    Then we go back to our roots and join a convivial bunch of skull-cracking cave people, including a greasy-wigged leader, a prehistoric Lady Macbeth, a mighty-nosed sex pest and a poor man’s King Yrcanos.

    Ian gets a shock, Babs gets hysterical, Susan gets her freak on and the Doctor gets on everyone’s nerves.

    Fagin takes on Greg Sutton in a bone-splitting, pumpkin-smashing fight to the death, while Babs borrows Susan’s infamous trip-every-trip footwear for a moonlit dash to TARDIS.

    So is the dawn of Mankind a good place to kick off our favourite Adventure in Space and Time? Listen in and find out…

Yes, it's that surreal saga where the TARDIS trio land on a friendly planet and witness the exciting new dance duo 'Patchwork People', who put on a memorable show despite possessing three left feet between them. And where the House Grill speciality is a meaty, sausage-fingered hand in a questionable bap. But what does Jim keep in his sculleries? And, after 50 years of the show, has Martin really developed an allergy to watching people run through corridors?

Find out in the podcast which is definitely smaller than it appears from the outside.

    "The great god Vulcan must be enraged. It's so volcanic. It's like some sort of volcano."

    Marvel as the next Doctor forges new vocabulary before your very eyes...

    Yes, it's Peter Capaldi, in a previous life, as a patriarch who escapes a pumice pummelling. But it's David Tennant as the legendary Time Lord who saves his future self from The Fires of Pompeii, with the aid of his trusty Water Pistol of Death.

    It's a tale of armless augurs, stony seers and Sybelline Sisters as born-again Welsh folk Mr and Ms Spartacus end up with prime seats for the Monsters of Rock.

    Are fixed points in time pointless? Has Amy Pond branched out into Sister-of-Karn-o-grams? And is the only way up for danders?

    Listen in as Jim and Martin, neither household names nor household gods, let their thoughts erupt.

    "Lots of planets have a north!"

    Yes, the grinning, jug-eared bloke from Northern Gallifrey makes his debut in 2005's seminal legend-resuscitator, Rose.

    Everyone's favourite chav, the eponymous Rose Tyler, has a bronze medal in under-7s gymnastics, a boyfriend who goes from annoying to plastic to basket case in 45 minutes and a Mum who all but twerks at passing strangers.

    No wonder she fancies a spot of travel. But first she must deal with plastic non-students, a disembodied arm, an internet weirdo and an angry vat of custard. These things happen when a benevolent alien blows up your job.

    So what do Jim and Martin make of their tentative foray into nascent NuWho? Find out here (just don't mention the belching wheelie bin).

    "This cannot be how it ends!"

    Well it damn nearly was.
    Yes, it's time to reconsider the 1996 Paul McGann TV Movie, with its gun fights, fist fights, car chases, snogging and schmaltz (no way was this an American production!).
    The Doctor is now only half-Gallifreyan with a naff syrup and an Addams Family interior design sense, while the Master is now part-snake, part-personal lubricant dispenser, with a penchant for "drezzing" up.
    Thank Bod for Amazing Grace with her static tear and innate knowledge of Time Lord temporal mechanics and for Chang Lee's hip high-fiving - keeping us well and truly anchored to the Eighties in this Millennial tale.
    So did Jim and Martin enjoy their Whocation in North America? Or did they yearn for Blighty with its breadline budgets, cramped sets and silly CSO? And what do they think of Peter Capaldi's casting as the 12th Doctor?

    "I haven't got no mum and dad. I've never had no mum and dad and I don't want no mum and dad. It's just me, all right?"
    So who's this perishin' apple-cheeked cockernee urchin then? Why, it's Ace! And she joins the show in 1987's Dragonfire, which mercifully closes Season 24.
    It's a frosty fable involving a wobbly-headed ANT, some woeful ice statuary and a frigid frozen food salesman.
    A screamer leaves, a street yoof joins, a permed old rascal returns, and the Doctor reveals that he is in fact not half-human, but half-lemming.
    Who is the little girl (and why)? Does it really take 3,000 years to set up a moderately successful branch of Iceland? And would you buy a fish finger from a homicidal maniac?
    Jim and Martin ponder these questions and more (e.g. "Isn't there something better on another channel?") so join them as they break the ice and chase the dragon...

    "Chop Suey, the Galactic Emperor"
    The elusive Robin Bland serves up this dubious dish, with a hefty helping of hairy kebab meat, in 1976's The Brain of Morbius.
    But it's still a more appetising proposition than the Liquorice Bootlace Surprise at Chez Mehendri, a Bohemian bistro with a red, white and green wine list.
    The latest renegade Time Lord may be half man/half Macra with a goldfish bowl bonce but he's not the only patchwork person around. He's joined by a bearded old crone who's a cross between Chuck Heston and one of his Apes, and a home help who's equal parts Richard III, Liam Gallagher and Abu Hamza.
    Sarah goes blind and the Doctor gets blind drunk but sobers up in time to blind the Sisterhood with chimney sweep science. Then Morbius broadsides us with a colossal non-canon ball - the bombshell that Tom Baker is, in fact, the mystery 12th Doctor.
    It's lively, it's loony and it's lurid so listen in as Jim and Martin bend their minds in an attempt to make sense of it all.

    "It's rather a pity, in a way. Now the universe is down to six hundred and ninety nine wonders."

    The Doctor reacts badly to the news of Girls Aloud splitting up. Luckily, the Krynoid Podcast is here to take his mind off it.

    After giving Cold War, Hide and Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS the once-over, Jim and Martin travel back in time to 1974 for Death to the Daleks - a tale of disarmed Daleks, operatic Exxilons and homicidal hoovers from the City of Dave.

    They play 'Spot the Terry Nation Trope' while also wondering just how terrifying a patch of two-toned flooring can be.

    With an empty Dalek 'standing' about and a blushing high priest channeling Spike Milligan, they ask 'Who is the real goon?'

    And they plead with Carey Blyton to stop using sax as a weapon.

    So why not dive in? Come on, the water's effervescent...

    Well that's the review of Timelash done then.

    Nevertheless, Jim and Martin gently tap themselves into the unrealistic Kontron tunnel of the title to see if they can't discover a gem or two.

    Baker's baubles get harnessed and Peri unleashes her inner damsel in distress, while Avon dons a Dick 3 wig and channels Henry Irving.

    The toga-togged Karfelans are menaced from above by Muppet cobras and from below by overgrown slowworms, little knowing that their dastardly dictator is actually half the man he used to be.

    Can the Doctor free them from this terrifying regime, where beekeepers and body-popping androids are a pain in the neck and where 'Tinsel Inside' is considered the highest mark of quality for time technology?

    Is Timelash as bad as the fan Hive Mind decrees?

    Yes... indeed... it... is...

    Well the sets are certainly wonderful and there are some rather strange goings on in Little Hodcombe.

    There's a bad-wigged nutter with a tinclavic stress ball, a one-eyed beggar with a penchant for ladies' handbags and Ben Wolsey's infamous Reproduction Room, for starters.

    Where does old Big Face keep his body? Would an incredulous guppy make a good companion? And just who is the old fella with the wizened chesticles?

    Listen as Jim and Martin awaken their feeble brain cells and try to answer these questions, while distinguishing set from location, real person from projection and, rather more easily, stroppy air hostess from straw May Queen.

    Wherein the Doctor and Leela, in reduced circumstances, wander about inside the Gallifreyan’s brain, hotly pursued by a hairy-eyed Hitler. Signs are spelt orl rong, a certain metal dog makes his debut as a violent virologist and a behemoth of a bottom-feeder gets pushed around on a skateboard, presumably in search of a suitably large barbeque upon which to end his days.

    Now where did I put that Thousand Island dressing…?

    "I have my own methods... I keep my my eyes open and my mouth shut."
    Sadly Jim and Martin don't, and consequently bang on at some  length here about 1967's chilling Troughton tale, The Tomb of the Cybermen.
    It's a four-episode epic involving awful accents, anxious archaeologists and cute and convenient handbag-size hit-mice.
    Gasp as Victoria falls asleep, Jamie falls into a trance and the Doctor nearly falls from grace as he plays impromptu puppet master - handy really as there's a Toberman on strings and an under-stuffed, self-decapitating metal manikin to contend with.
    Our doughty podcasters also find time to reveal the bowel-churning origin of the Cybermats, for whom a damn good flushing is too good.
    But don't worry - just sit back, tune in and let Jim and Martin eliminate fear from your brain...
