The Podcast (or DocPast)
The Doctor is turned invisible, inaudible and intangible, and Steve and Dodo clown around in this both childish and completely racist serial.
The Doctor has dinner with the enemy, Mickey wants to cheat on his girlfriend, and no one seems to object to Cardiff Castle being demolished.
Dodo dooms mankind with a sneeze; cyclopses lock humans in a security kitchen; and incorporeal creatures sit down in chairs.
Our new Doctor has already started flexing his muscles. Have a listen to our musings on Peter Capaldi’s debut as the Time Lord.
Doc has no rhythm, Jack has great taste in cocktails, and aliens can’t distinguish bio matter from plastic.
A creepy child telekinetically controls toy monkeys and makes gas masks grow out of people’s faces, and we meet Captain Jack for the first time!
In addition to The Doctor, Hartnell plays a different character in this one, who also goes on holiday. And then we get a new, annoying companion.
The Doctor and Lucie battle a rockstar environ-mentalist intent on turning the Earth into a Brussels sprout.
Rose rescues her dead dad; Jackie is immortal; and in the end we forget that our hero is a cheating, lying, lousy husband.
