Semi-immortal frog robots in green velvet just won’t let Bigon be Bigon!
A failed attempt to visit Heathrow airport, and
get rid of drop off Tegan, leads to the TARDIS materialising aboard an alien spacecraft. Doc quickly establishes how little faith he has in his new rag-tag crew and goes to check things out all on his lonesome. And gee whiz isn’t this craft full of some lovely high tech buttons and panels! It even has funky spherical drones that would make Skagra jealous. More importantly though, it’s safe for the rest to crawl out of the TARDIS, so long as everyone wears their bike-helmet-plus-mouth-guard.
It turns out the ship belongs to a race called the Urbankans, green and slightly reptilian humanoids (some might even say frog-like) that have a minor obsession with collecting random humans throughout Earth’s history. So far they have an ancient Grecian, an ancient Aboriginal Australian, an ancient Mayan princess and Burt Kwouk (!). They must still be missing someone from their collection though, as they’re on their way back to Earth and will arrive in four days’ time. Doc and co need to quickly work out if the Urbankans are friend or foe or their arrival could spell Doomsday!
(Ok, seriously, Podcastland. Here’s my pledge to you — I promise to add ALL missing listener minis to this and the latest eps within 36h of this episode dropping. Long-distance High-5s /Leon)
