Blithely ignoring the fact that we’ve actually completed a full season in this Podcast, we barrel into The Christmas Invasion excited to meet the 10th Doctor for the first time – 35 minutes later. Will Porter fall in love with the new Who? Will John fall in love with the UNIT call-back to the classic series? Will we lament a society where we throw the word “love” around so casually?
But take not the time for such reflection as we have to nip backwards to another debut episode, Spearhead from Space, the introduction of one Jon Pertwee as Doctor #3. But that’s not all – for the same low, low price you also get the introduction of Cambridge scientist, Liz Shaw, and the re-re-introduction of the legendary Brigadier. Will Porter notice the subtle, blink-and-you-miss-it similarities to Rose? Will John revel in the first glimpse of the legendary Season 7? Well, yes, probably, as it would be weird if the answer to these questions was, “No.”
