The Doctor first encountered The Silurians in his third incarnation, along with Dr. Liz Shaw, the Brigadier, and UNIT. Join us as we discuss how well that worked out…
This time we are looking at the Second Doctor story, “The Invasion.” This one was particularly interesting to watch as it’s been reconstructed with animation to fill in the missing episodes. …And I hadn’t seen it before. So…new Who for me!
Join us for a discussion of fabulous Companions, iconic images, and the introduction of U.N.I.T.
The second Doctor Who story ever was also the TARDIS crew’s first encounter with The Daleks…and the name of said story was…The Daleks. That works out pretty well, yeah? So, join us for a discussion of this, the beginning of the Doctor’s long battle with The Evil Pepper-Pots.
Many thanks to Terry Nation for giving us this perennial baddie. Sir, we salute you!
Here, at long last is our review of The Three Doctors. We apologize for the delay. Feel free to blame life getting extremely busy…and Misha Collins.
In any case, join us for a discussion of this, the first multi-Doctor story, from back in the era when it was possible to call the Time Lords for backup. This breaks the first law of time, eh? Oh well. We’ll worry about it later.

It’s Book Club Time!
That’s right. With discussion enhanced by the analysis in the book About Time: The Unauthorized Guide to Doctor Who by Lawrence Miles and Tat Wood, this time Scott and Ken discuss The Ribos Operation. So, join us as we remember Mary Tamm and discuss Romana’s first episode.
A friend of mine forwarded this to me earlier today. I think it about says it all. We will miss you Mary Tamm.
Tributes have been paid to “truly beautiful” Doctor Who actress Mary Tamm, who died today at the age of 62.
The star was best known for playing the first incarnation of the Doctor’s companion Romana, alongside Tom Baker, but recently starred in TV series Wire In The Blood, Paradise Heights and Jonathan Creek. Her last role was in EastEnders, playing Orlenda in 2009.
Tamm, whose parents were Estonian, had a long career on stage and screen, with roles in films including The Odessa File and The Likely Lads, and a recurring role in soap Brookside as Penny Crosbie.
She died at her home in Battersea, south west London after suffering from cancer for 18 months, agent Barry Langford said. The actress, who did not learn English until she went to primary school, leaves her husband, Marcus Ringrose, daughter Lauren and seven-year-old grandson Max.
“Mary was truly beautiful in every way. She was a very spiritual lady who loved nature and adored all animals,” her agent said. “On set and offstage, her earthy northern humor and self-deprecating wit brightened every occasion. She was a consummate actress, and immensely popular in the profession.
“Mary was born in Bradford, the daughter of impoverished refugees, and through sheer talent and hard graft got herself to Rada, starred opposite Jon Voight in The Odessa File, and found a form of immortality as the Time Lady Romana opposite Tom Baker in Doctor Who. We will miss her every day.”
