  • 054: The Reign of Terror

    19 March 2014 (8:52pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 2 hours, 15 minutes and 17 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    "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?

    Listen and decide…

    "Chap with the wings there… five rounds rapid!"

     

    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?

     

    You'll burn up with excitement. You'll freeze in terror. And you'll believe a sprightly yellow roadster can drive itself.

    Episode Duration: 2 hours, 23 minutes and 11 seconds

    "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?

    Listen here to find out.

    "Proof! Proof! Proof! It always comes back to the same thing."

    Well that's what we were all saying when rumours were rife about the recovery of missing episodes, and is also the Doctor's mantra in this now-extant artefact.

    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?

    But there was Who to be celebrated and our intrepid podcasters braved crowds, a clergyman and an under-cooked Dalek cake to pay their respects to the venerable Time Lord.

    “This doesn’t roll along on wheels, you know!”

    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…

    "Like a nine year old trying to rebuild a motorbike." Not a description of Jim and Martin attempting to produce a remotely professional podcast but the words of a very unusual lady...
    Sigh with ennui as Jim and Martin try to understand The Doctor's Wife, despite failing ever to have done so with their own. 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).

    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?

    "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.

    "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 be.

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

    "Nobody wants you. Nobody needs you. Nobody cares!"

    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...

    "Something is coming to our village... something very wonderful and strange."

    So is the Davison two-parter The Awakening "wonderful and strange"?

    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.

    No. Fret Not. These words are spoken by a giant prawn to a Time Lord, just after exiting his body through his tear duct. Yes, this can only be Tom Baker’s bonkers brain-centric epic, The Invisible Enemy.

    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...

    Romana goes off seafood, the Doctor loves the sound of breaking glass and Thawn hates just about anyone who isn't Thawn.

    Green crevices, bushy gates and the imminent threat of dangly-bit exposure must have kept Mary Whitehouse on full alert but did The Power of Kroll float Jim and Martin's canoes?
