Dirty Whoers Podcast - Episode 94

Hello folks. We’re still here. Glad you are too. Here we go again. It's even more bobbo than usual, but at least it's pleasantly short.

This episode we’re going back to the Hartnell era and reviewing the often ignored, ‘Planet of Giants’. Something of a ‘flyover state’ of an episode, this is the first serial of the second season, way back in 1964 – interestingly 4 years before Land of the Giants and nearly a decade after Incredible Shrinking Man – make of that what you will. Packed with practical effects, environmental warnings and casual misogyny.

It’s been 10-months since our resurrection and Fuchsia’s regeneration, and we’re still here home educating, home working, and home improving - making the best of our respective countries, indeed the world, mostly going to rat shit. We’re still cranking these babies out in a battle to fight the day-to-day tedium of our ongoing existence. It’s way cheaper than therapy.

Anyway, enjoy. Seventy-five minutes of a tiny TARDIS team traversing treacherous terrain. Overzealous businessmen, pint-sized poisonings, spurious science, and an environmental mystery on a truly gigantic scale - where the crew make only a small impression and it’s actually a nosey telephonist and her bobby hubby that save the day.

AVOID SPOILERS: Watch it here first.

Please give us a review and thumbs up wherever you listen. Here's our rating system and here's the drinking game (has anyone ever actually done the drinking game?). For our sins, we're also over on Facebook and Twitter - like you care. 

Stay safe, you glorious Whovian bastards.

Dirty Whoers Podcast - Episode 93

It's fair to say we need to get out more, but it's fair to say so does everyone.

We're heading back almost 40 years to January 1983, and the Peter Davison serial ‘Arc of Infinity’. This is the first one in the 20th anniversary year, and it feels like it’s been about a year in the story since Time-Flight  – or it’s actually about 50 years, judging by the number of audios Big Finish has crowbarred into this gap. 4 episodes. 25 minutes each. Sarah Sutton. Janet Fielding. Yada. Yada. Yada.

Dodge any spoilers by watching it first, HERE.

If you're as confused about our rating system as Terry is, go check it out. You're going to need a drink so may as well give our drinking game a punt.

We're on Facebook, and Twitter, if you still do such things. Please give us a review or a rating on Spotify or iTunesor wherever you listen.

Keep safe, you beautiful Whovian bastards.

Dirty Whoers Podcast - Episode 92

Greetings. Children of the night.

Grab yourselves a glass of wine - "Wine? I do not drink... wine."

This time we're going to be taking a look at Big Tom and Lala's vampy 'classic', 'State of Decay' [1980].

Terrance, Sputnik, The Kitty and Lord Pez seem to mostly agree on this one. Number 2 in the E-Space trilogy. 4 episodes, 25 minutes each. More camp than a cub scout jamboree, a romping emo-panto left over from the season 13/14 run of horror pastiches and classics - and something of a stand-out in this season because of it.

Avoid spoilers by checking it out first, HERE.

We're on Facebook, and Twitter, if you do such things. Please give us a review or a rating on Spotify or iTunesor wherever you get your Doctor Who podcasting fix. Don't forget our drinking game and our rating system.

Dirty Whoers Podcast - Episode 91

'Ello campers.

Brace yourselves. This month we're reviewing the McCoy first season outing, 'Delta and the Bannermen' [1987].

Tabs, Sen, Sputters and Lightfoot get a bit shouty. May contain the f-word, the c-word, spoilers and nuts. It's a merciful 3 episodes, 25 minutes each. An hour and a half of rock and roll and rockets and redcoats. All shot on location in Wales. Something about stealing baby formula, missing satellites, screaming kids and Ken Dodd – all will hopefully become apparent.

Not seen  Delta and the Bannermen? Check it out before you listen to the podcast, HERE.

We're on Facebook, and over on Twitter, if you do such things.

Dirty Whoers Podcast - Episode 90

'Ello folks.

Grab y'self a cocoa it's time for our review of the 1964 Harnell 'classic', The Aztecs - with some slightly mixed opinions.

Sputters, Lightfoot, Tabs and Sen in a remarkably sober one. Pottering around in the TARDIS and getting into historical scrapes. Casual jewellery theft leading to some mesoamerican cloak and dagger. The Doctor gets off with someone's mum and Chesterton kicks ass. Susan goes back to school. Bugger all budget well spent.

Not seen Doctor Who and the Aztecs? It's online HERE.

Dirty Whoers Podcast - Episode 89


It's time, finally, for our review of Talons of Weng-Chiang [1977] - with mixed opinions as ever.

Terry (the Lightfoot), Miss Tabby, Sputters and The Lord President make time to talk over the pros and cons of this seminal classic.

Number four and Leela go cosplaying in Victorian London. Limehouse and limelight. The Phantom of the Opera gets his ride stolen, then loses the keys. Pig puppets in the laundry. Lots of skulking in other peoples gardens. The Savage drinks a trifle.

Not seen Talons of Weng-Chiang? Check it out HERE. If you're looking for more superb Jago and Lightfoot? - try The Bloodless Soldier (for free) from Big Finish.

Dirty Whoers Podcast - Episode 88

Another mixed set of opinions this time 'round as we give our inebriated opinion of the Davison era time-travel 'romp', Mawdryn Undead [1983]. Thinking, as ever, is divided.

Sen, Tabby, Sputters and Lightfoot get together (some slight sound issues, sorry) and chew the fat over all things beige.

The Brig and the Doc drink tea while the companions run around making wild assumptions. A car thief and a man with a bird on his head plot his downfall. Something about stolen Timelord stuff and the assistants turning into kids.

Not seen Mawdryn Undead? Check it out HERE if you need to.

Don't forget our drinking game and if you need it, though even Terry got it right this time, here's our Dirty WHOers rating system. We're on Twitter (deal with it) and Facebook (if ya like that kinda thing) should you have a thing for irreverent daily WHOness.

Dirty Whoers Podcast - Episode 87

It's time for us to review the final episode of Big Tom, Logopolis [1981].

The Doc and Algebra Boy go to Logopolis to repair the chameleon circuit, because maths, not knowing that a cricketer is waiting for him to fall off Jodrell Bank. Something about a TARDIS in a TARDIS and Nyssa's dad.

The new team, Sputters, Tabby, Sen and Terry, are doing our best to knock a new one out once a month, so fingers crossed for another one soon.

We have a new addition to our Dirty WHOers drinking game and if you need it, here's our rating system. Shout out if you think a Logopolitan is a cocktail or an ice cream, and what the ingredients would be.

Not seen Logopolis? Opinion is divided as to whether you should. Check it out HERE.

If you do Facebook or Twitter we're over there posting pics and vids and quibbling with ourselves.

Dirty Whoers Podcast - Episode 86

This time out we're casting a critical eye over (and slurring our vowles through) the Jon Pertwee, Caroline John and Nick Courtney classic, 'Doctor Who and the Silurians' [1970].

This episode we'd also like to introduce Miss Tabby, our new Dirty WHOers regular and the product of an incident between a cup of tea, our TARDIS cat and an unexpected release of Artron energy.

Some of you may recognise her voice - but our ongoing team anonymity continues to be a blessing that means we can say whatever the hell we want. We very much hope Fuschia can pop in for a cuppa/tipple some time in the future, but please welcome Tabitha as she has some big Pixie shoes to fill.

As you may be aware, we're going to be looking at the 'classic' episodes from now on [1963-1989]. We've done A LOT of the new stuff, but in times of crisis, we want to do what we love. We may return to the new series at a later date, but be prepared for some one-off specials on cannon and fandom to fill in the gaps.

We're doing our best to knock a few more of these out while we can, but coordination of the team is always a tricky one, even in lockdown. Please bear with us.

If you need it, here's the run-down on our rating system. We'll be updating our Dirty WHOers drinking game once we know how the cat reacts to further stimulus.

If you do Facebook or Twitter we share stuff over there daily.

Stay safe, stay inside, and keep h'pecker up.

Dirty WHOers Podcast - Episode 85

Howdy folks.

Well, it's been a while - and ain't the world gone mental. It seemed a perfect time, while we're bouncing around our respected houses, watching old episodes and grazing from the fridge, to flop out a podcast. What could be more perfect for a Covid-19 special than The Invisible Enemy [1977]?

Don't worry, it's mercifully short.

There's no Fuschia for this one, so we've drafted in St. Xtofer to help out and add a thin veneer of respectability.

If you're as confused as we are, take a look at the Dirty WHOers rating system. As we're all in lockdown and outside regular drinking hours you may also need the Dirty WHOers drinking game to get you through.

Not seen this episode? Check it out HERE.

Be safe, be happy, and please subscribe to our daily Whovian bobbo over on Facebook and Twitter.

Wanna check out our previous podcasts? No worries, you can do that for most of them HERE on the blog. Will we do more? Very possibly - but only time will tell.

Boomshanka.
