Dirty Whoers Podcast - Episode 95

How do, folks? 

Time for our review of a bit of classic, Face of Evil [1977].

Right in the middle of the golden years, Big Tom at (arguably) his characterful best, first trip out for Terry’s favourite (Louise Jameson as Leela), the much-acclaimed season 14.

Will contain spoilers. May contain nuts. 4 episodes, totalling 100 minutes. A fine cast of scantily clad male thespians skipping around a jungle set delivering their lines with the utmost sincerity like they were on stage at The Globe. Is Leela the only woman in this? There might be another one when they’re getting set up to attack the wall... because that raises a whole heap of unwholesome questions. Not seen this one? Check it out here.

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.

The Dirty WHOers.
