Happy New Year, Whittaker era! And how better to celebrate than with beefy beans and countless countdowns?
It’s New Year’s Eve 2021, and for the third year running Jeff’s done a bunk, leaving Sarah to pick up the pieces as the family always expects her to because she still hasn’t found a nice man to settle down with, and the odds of him being the guy standing across the counter from her holding a 1930s Monopoly board bequeathed to him by his latest, possibly latest ex-girlfriend seem limited to non-existent.
Into this madcap Mancunian melodrama plop Team TARDIS 2.0, thinking they’re seven seconds and a brush with death away from a sentient beach holiday, but who instead of playing chess with crabs are forced into a four-dimensional chess version with Daleks, corridors, and somehow finding a way to survive a mega-meta-countdown before midnight finally comes and the clock strikes Thirteen.
This is the second time we’re discussing Eve of the Daleks on Who Back When. When you’ve listened to this one, check out our instant(ish) reaction review here (and below) as well.
