In every era of Doctor Who there are stories which, for whatever reason, aren't as well remembered as others. They're the ones you skip over when you're browsing your DVDs, wondering what you should slip on. Maybe it's because of other, "better" episodes in the same season. Maybe it's received fan wisdom putting you off. Maybe you had a genuinely bad experience with the story in the past.

Tonight, howeve...

At the end of October, we threw a vote out there on Twitter for which Tom Baker season you would like us to discuss on the next episode. 160 votes later the results were:

So here we are, tonight, to discuss Season 15. Hope you enjoy the chat!

It launched in the UK in late October and will be available on home media in some territories later this very month.

But did you know that, on the podcast which gave birth to the Doc...

Nek minnit... we get the news that Disney+ has secured the worldwide rights to screen Doctor Who outside of the UK, starting in 2023. International fandom blew up, particularly here in Australia. Dave was called to appear...
