Episode 086: The Creature From The Pit

“She tipped the ambassador into a pit and threw astrologers at him.”

Public Notice: Beware of low-flying Russell Grants.kp086-artwork-300

What else could this be but 1979’s The Creature From The Pit?

It’s a somewhat green-tinged tale about an enormous slug who, despite being chucked down a pit and starved, still seems very pleased to see us. He shares the dank depths with Catweazle’s charlatan cousin but they’re soon joined by a somewhat over-stretched stuntman, a sweaty Doctor, a haughty Romana and a tin dog in the middle of an identity crisis.

Bad enough you might think but they also have to contend with a matriarch with magpie tendencies, Poundshop Fagin and his cronies and a conniving old crone. The addition of the whip-cracking Captain Camp and his homicidal sprouts just makes things even worse.

But did Jim and Martin fall for the Pit and its attendant charms or were they left green about the gills? Listen here to find out.

    Obviously, I am sitting here having a few beers on a warm Melbourne, Australia night. This one is pretty reasonable viewing. 6/10. Nothing to be embarrassed about as a Who fan.
