The Slitheen first um… blast onto our screens with their, shall we say, effervescent personalities in the first two-parter of the New Series, Aliens of London and World War III.  Will Porter’s penchant for fart jokes leave him helpless in the face of an onslaught of gastro-intestinal humor?  Will John’s fixation on flatulence sour his take on the intrigue and excitement of an alien invasion?

We then turn to the taut, John Le Carre-esque, futuristic post-Cold War thrllier… oops, sorry, typo there, just let me go back and fix- FACE IT JOHN, IT’S MISSPELLED!  THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO BUT GET ON WITH WATCHING WARRIORS OF THE DEEP!

Confirming our belief that reality television will be the death of us all and/or lead to a mass invasion of Earth by the Daleks, we at last uncover the mystery of just who is the Bad Wolf before having to endure the emotion of The Parting of the Ways.  Will Porter discover a new appreciation for the power of the Daleks or will he be too distracted by the horror of an android gameshow host?

We then take-in the creme de la creme (literally, “yoghurt“) of classic series regeneration stories with the 5th Doctor’s swan-song The Caves of Androzani.  Does John have the mouth of a prattling jackanapes or do his eyes tell a different story?  Could you even answer that given that Podcasting is an audio medium?  What even is a jackanapes?  None of these questions will be addressed in this Podcast.

You know how when you sometimes want to change species?  Like we all do.  Well, Doctor Who takes a hard line on that one and says definitively… maybe not?  The scarecrows are a’marchin’, the schoolkids are a’shootin’, and everyone is a’stickin’ it to World War I as the Doctor becomes human and Martha once again gets screwed over.  Will Porter be overcome with emotion at this beautiful testament to the beauty of a lifetime of true love?  Will John smugly work into the discussion that he already knows what happens because anyone who’s a real fan read this story when it was a New Adventure back in 1995?  You’ll find out as our Podcasters breakdown the fundamentals of Human Nature and flee from the Family of Blood.

Right, so who wants to become human when you can become a Time Lord?!  Note, however, that becoming a Time Lord may (may, mind you) cause your brain to start poking out of your skull.  But who has time to contemplate consequences when this classic 5th Doctor story is firing plot points at you like little kids machine-gunning a scarecrow – Nyssa and Tegan, Turlough‘s first story, Brigadier 1983, Brigadier 1977, the subsequent UNIT dating CHAOS, the Black Guardian, and just generally the wild excitement that is the 20th anniversary season.  But such is the firehose of plot when you open the spigot that is the catchily entitled… Mawdryn Undead.
