Macra May Kill You - "Gridlock" & "The Macra Terror"

Oh no!  NNTMP has got Crabs!  And, as if things couldn’t get any more dystopian, we’ve also got traffic!  And… AND… cats driving.  AND… AND… AND cats driving while wearing HATS!  So, yeah, there are, apparently, dark days ahead for humanity, but fear not Probers, because John and Porter have slapped on their “Dogged Persistence” patches and stared unflinchingly into the Face of Boe as they grapple with some bumper-to-bumper Gridlock.

We then follow on to a 2nd Doctor, Ben, Polly, and Jamie classic via the fairly obvious link, which of course is… the dystopian future.  NO!  It’s not MacraTHERE ARE NO SUCH THINGS AS MACRA (story title excepted – there are such things as terrors related to said non-existent Macra)! If this discussion between John and Porter seems a bit more animated to you, then in all probability it’s because they are taking on some missing episodes now returned to us through the exciting innovation of cartoons matched to the original soundtracks.  So join them for a heapin’ helpin’ of Surf ‘n’ Mind Control Gas as they confront The Something-Something Terror!
