Episode 087: The Crusade

“I’ll turn the world we know into your enemy!”

Confusingly, this isn’t The Enemy of the World but in fact The Crusade – a swords and Saracens saga of identity theft, cross-dressing and honey traps.kp087-artwork-300

The Doctor is courting intrigue, Ian is caught in a sticky situation and Vicki is caught out cosplaying. Meanwhile Barbara and Princess Joanna are treated like sacks of flour and El Akir should surely be sacked for abusing his Emir’s position – not to mention his long-suffering staff.

There’s also room for the sage Saladin, the smitten Saphadin and the Unscrupulous Hulk, not to mention some stereotyped light-fingered locals.

So do Jim and Martin see The Crusade as a glorious victory or as successful as one of King Richard’s hunting trips?

Episode 063: The Chase

“This game of hide and seek through time is wearing a little thin now.”

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves, Chesterfield.KP063 The Chase artwork 300

Yes, it’s the 1965 Dalek story The Chase we’re talking about. A tale of bagpipe creatures, a highly annoying hayseed, living vegetation (gasp!), under-utilised plungers and a space pilot with a panda fetish.

The Doctor encounters a robot look-unlike, Ian dad-dances, Babs plays cowboys and Indians and Vicki laughs like a loon.

The Daleks are no more impressive, hoisting their skirts and staggering through the six episodes in a quagmire of coughing, nonsensical chanting and painfully slow mental arithmetic.

Jim and Martin search for some meaning to it all but do they find it?
