    On the Time Lash: The College Years opens with a discussion of 2017's The Pilot and the unfinished 1980 serial Shada. In other words, it's Joy Division and cheap lager v.s bicycles and acapella choo-choos. Is The Pilot really a fresh start? Who or what influenced Steven Moffat's re-imagining of the 12th Doctor as an educator? What happens when you add orange juice to Vodka and Coke? Just what is the definitive version of Shada and what the bloody hell does Kylie Minogue have to do with all of this? Also: The Degsestial Funmaker pays a long overdue visit to launch a new series of Degsey's Where Did it Come? Game, Ben and Mark ponder when Doctor Who last excited them and Ben shares quite a moving story about the personal connections he has to Douglas Adams' great unfinished work. Buy us a pint here

    Ben and Mark discuss pain, anguish, death and loss in another hilarious episode of On the Time Lash which pairs 2015's Heaven Sent with 1982's Time Flight. Heaven Sent: Paul McEvoy writes in to tell us all about the beauty of Murray Gold's score, Mark tries to structure the plot around the Kubler-Ross 5 stages of grief, and Ben unpicks the clockwork mechanisms of Steven Moffat's tremendous script. Time-Flight: What would this be like as a Pertwee story? ponders Mark on his first viewing of a much-derided story, but will he toe the line or dissent from fan consensus? Meanwhile, Ben introduces the ropiest conspiracy theory you'll hear all year and discusses what Time-Flight had to offer his younger self as he started out on his Doctor Who journey.

    Ben and Mark say farewell to two long-serving companions and celebrate the 46th anniversary of The Hand of Fear by pairing it up with Face the Raven. Trap Street's back, alright? Visiting an alien refugee camp, the Lash Lads quibble the legality of Me's contract with the raven, Mark's disappointed to see a bunch of drably costumed extras on a Harry Potter set, Ben's unconvinced by the Doctor's fury and Letitia Wright is wasted in an expositionary role. But what of Rigsby? Meanwhile over at the Nunton nuclear power station, Mark discusses doing Chernobyl on a shoestring, Ben loves a quarry and small, positive steps for trans acceptance in 1970s television before the near-immediate murder. ALSO: Ben and Mark find a new guru figure, the correlation between dislike for Clara and the #NotMyDoctor "movement" and a series of references to obscure British crime shows.

    Ben and Mark celebrate 100 episodes with their listeners in a very special bumper episode of the podcast which discusses ‘Sleep No More’ and ‘Timelash’. Two disparate stories that, as the episode plays out, have something very special in common. We talk about Doctor Who coming late to the found footage party, the inherent nastiness of the Sixth Doctor era, eye bogies, missed potential and the perils of Peri. Also: Undercutting giant leaps for diversity, Hammy Darrow, cancelling HG Wells and the things Glen McCoy can do with seven minutes.

    Ben and Mark are joined by rival Scottish Doctor Who podcast The Polis Box to discuss 'The Zygon Invasion/Inversion'. Will the Lash Lads put aside their differences with Lee, Dave and Cameron as they sit down and talk? Well, yes, quite easily actually. Under discussion: The slightly queasy messaging of integration, the T word, whether or not the Zygons are more than just a one-shot villain, repeated public alien incursions, the dubious Doctor Disco, 'heeling it up' and some snark about spin-off media. Also: A Fatal Five Way Degsey's Where Did it Come? Game and a skip full of pubes.

    Ben and Mark begin a two part episode all about the price of immortality with a discussion of 'The Girl Who Died' and 'The Woman Who Lived'. Did the Doctor know Ashildr would die? Isn't it fine to just sometimes cast the same actors again in larger roles and never refer to it? Is Maisie Williams any better in 'Game of Thrones'? We've never watched it. Is the Me character nothing more than an obfuscating Hybrid red herring? Also: Gallows humour, living through the violent establishment of European society, comedy and flippancy in Doctor Who and two exciting rounds of Degsey's Where Did it Come? Game.

    Ben and Mark attempt to undo some bootstraps with a discussion of the second Series 9 two parter - Under the Lake/Before the Flood. Under discussion: Is there a link between the Fisher King and the Myrka? Is time travel really all that complex? Why Doctor Who can't do ghosts and whether base under siege stories light a fire beneath Peter Capaldi. Also: Being amongst the 25 tallest men, levels of fandom in guest actors and another of Mark's terrible Doctor Who anecdotes.

    In the second of their Davros 2-parter, Ben and Mark go back to the very beginning with (categorically) Terry Nation's masterpiece Genesis of the Daleks. Under discussion: The shadow of nuclear anxiety and fascism in Nation's best works, prejudice, brutality, the directorial genius of David Maloney, how Genesis is Doctor Who's Hamlet and we completely forget to talk about the giant clam. Also: Possibly the hardest ever round of DWDICG, Ben and Mark pitch a new beer to Brewdog, Mark's tenuous familial link to Michael Wisher and a very special tribute indeed...

    *With thanks to our listener Paul McEvoy for the title suggestion It's the darkest day, the blackest hour. Chin up, shoulders back, let's see what Ben and Mark are made of as they tackle the existential horrors of 'Dark Water' and 'Death in Heaven'.  Under discussion: How careful do you have to be when dealing with death and real world tragedy in what's ostensibly a family show? Whose internal conflict was greater this series - the Doctor's or Steven Moffat's? And most pressingly of all, what is all of this for?  After that they squelch their way through Malcolm Clarke's synth soundtrack to discuss another Master plan - 1972's The Sea Devils. Under discussion: nudey monsters, the refinement of Roger Delgado, 70's electronic music and larking about with the Navy.

    Ben and Mark take a before and after look at solar flare damage in Doctor Who - pairing 'In the Forest of the Night' with 'The Ark in Space'. Is 'In the Forest of the Night' really all that bad? Is 'The Ark in Space' really one of the all time classics? Under discussion: Doomed relationships, challenging children, childishness, body horror, bubble wrap and how the multicultural vision of 'Star Trek' doesn't always match with a BBC directors address book.

    As the Doctor and Clara visit Bristol in 'Flatline', Mark advocates toppling 'The Celestial Toymaker' off a harbour in an oddly topical, yet mostly trivial new episode of On the Time Lash. Under discussion: Artistic expression, class and race in 1960s Doctor Who, child-unfriendly childishness, the evolution of the Doctor-lite episode and how a prestige Saturday night drama can attract a younger audience. Also: Two painful things more enjoyable than 'The Celestial Toymaker', Mark taps into an austere childhood at his Great Aunts and Ben relates a heart-warming tale from a children's play park.

    Ben and Mark turn their attention to the teachers of Coal Hill School as they look at 'The Caretaker' and 'The Rescue'. One story features two kindly teachers specialised in history and chemistry whilst the other focuses on two teachers who, whilst romantically involved, have neither. Under discussion: A whistle stop history of portrayals of the military in Doctor Who, the unassuming historical significance of 'The Rescue', boyfriend errors, and the invention of the Doctor Who companion.

Is 'The Invisible Enemy' really as rubbish as everyone remembers?  ALSO: The return of Degsey's Where Did it Come Game, meeting Michael Sheard in a car park, and how Mark is due royalties from sales of Into the Dalek.

Along the way, they travel back along their own timelines to ponder their initial reactions to Deep Breath compared to their opinions on it now, discuss the merits and flaws of bringing back old Doctors outside of anniversaries and talk effusively about the work of Ben Wheatley and casting of Peter Capaldi. ALSO: Being sexually intimidated by Jacqueline Pearce, watching Doctor Who with Frank Skinner, nibbling on an Ogron, Season 6B and whether or not The Two Doctors goes too far.

    Ben and Mark go back to where it all began, with the very first multi-Doctor story 'The Three Doctors'. After a very special edition of Degsey's Where Did it Come Game, they try to define the indefinable magic of Doctor Who by looking at this most comforting slice of nostalgia. Under discussion: Trying to understand the reverance with which each later Doctor holds the earliest incarnation, John Levene's finest hour, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee's hugely entertaining rivalry and an appreciation for those fabulous Bristol boys - Bob Baker and Dave Martin.

In Nightmare in Silver, the fantastical worlds of Neil Gaiman clash with the sci-fi action movie, whilst Tomb of the Cybermen updates Egyptian tomb raiding for the cybernetic age. But are they any good? Under discussion: Neil Gaiman's shifting opinions, Brazilian stew, Mark's proposed Tomb of the Cybermen stage production with a cast of 10 year olds, racial representation, what it means to be human, the slow, creeping death of Doctor Who fandom and the perils of imagination.

Is 'The Rings of Akhaten' as bad as its reputation suggests? Is there any real merit in asking an old Doctor to do a new speech? Does arc-building have casualties? And whilst we're at it, what is 'The Greatest Show in the Galaxy' about, anyway? Violent hippies? The battle to save Doctor Who from cancellation? Comedy as a defence mechanism? All this and more in the 75th On the Time Lash!

In 'The Angels Take Manhattan', they discuss just how sad and tragic an ostensibly happy ending can be, suggest that Dudley Simpson is better than Sting, compare Alex Kingston to a frog and wonder just how practical sending a Weeping Angel out for your groceries actually is. And in 'Warrior's Gate', Ben can't get his head round how bad many companion departures actually are, Mark admires Paul Joyce's pretensions, and is it really just simply about how awful slavery is?

Also: Yet another Big Finish pitch, rampant consumerism, a bolshy and bruising Tom Baker, another tribute to the wonderful Elisabeth Sladen and the fall and rise of UNIT in Doctor Who.

    Time is against them as Ben and Mark battle sickness and a naughty dog to bring you their discussion about 'The Wedding of River Song' and 'The Time Monster'. Two season finales as Steven Moffat brings his tangled web of plotlines together to close out Series 6 and Robert Sloman does whatever it is he's doing to close Series 10. Why does the Doctor have a mullet? Is the new series missing the madness of Moffat? Is Kronos, God of time really such a threat? How does eating pheasant at a publicly funded institution look? How sexy is Roger Delgado? ALSO: Ben and Mark discuss their reactions to Series 11 thus far and question whether or not Doctor Who is still for them.

    Ben and Mark discuss sub-par Cyber sequels as they debate the relative merits of 'Closing Time' and 'Attack of the Cybermen'. Are they each as bad as fan wisdom will have you believe? If you've been listening to this podcast for a while you'll probably know the answer to that. Under discussion: Parenthood, the fear of children, psycho-analysing Steven Moffat, being rude about DWM staff, saying nice things about Eric Saward, dodgy synths and guns. Also: As series 11 continues, Ben and Mark briefly discuss 'Rosa' and 'Arachnids in the UK'. As ever, tweet us at @OnTheTimeLash, @BenVerth & @Oldmankrondas

    Ben and Mark talk a load of bull in their fruity Scottish accents as they reach The God Complex and pair it up with 1979's The Horns of Nimon. Expect Brexit metaphors, an impassioned defence of a much maligned classic, an embarrassing defeat in Degsey's Where Did it Come Game, the differing approaches to the comedy of Douglas Adams and appreciation for an animatronic minotaur, Amara Khan, Rory Williams and Lalla Ward. Praise them. Also this week: Ben and Mark discuss The Ghost Monument, the new TARDIS, and ponder where the new merchandise for the kiddies has disappeared to.
