Episode 056: The Horns of Nimon

“Lord Niiiimon… it is I, Soldeed…”KP056 artwork

Words to strike terror into every self-respecting Doctor Who fan.

Yes, Jim and Martin scrape the very bottom of the cavernous Who barrel this time and confront The Horns of Nimon.

The budget is low but the camp is oh-so-very high. Tom Baker and Graham Crowden compete to bite the biggest chunks out of the unimpressive scenery, accompanied by the wrong Romana and the incorrect K9, while Janet Ellis longs desperately for her Blue Peter job offer to come through the post.

Marvel as trained dancers balance enormous bull masks on their heads and themselves on their ludicrous platform shoes. Gasp as the co-pilot flaps his jowls like a demented bloodhound. Consider suicide as Crowden and Baker have the time of their lives, at the expense of the production and its tormented viewers.

But is it so bad it’s good? Or is it so bad that it’ll split your trousers?

Listen in for Jim and Martin’s verdicts on this pseudo-mythical mess.
