Human Self-Destruction - “Aliens of London/World War III” & “Warriors of the Deep”
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!
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.
