Wow! Another season down, and this one has been wrapped up so soon – so, naturally, we’re embarking on our now-obligatory season retrospective. Season 7 was the beginning of a new era for the show – new Doctor, Earthbound storylines, and the consistent involvement of UNIT. What do the Watchers think of this brave new era – does the change in format…
 
We’re turning into green werewolves and bringing on the apocalypse, as we tackle a much-loved Pertwee classic in the shape of the one-and-only Inferno! Will the team unanimously love this one, or as the season finale will it be true to form, consistent with the rest of the Season 7 seven-parters, with the Watchers split on their opinions? Over the …
 
This episode, it is our Moral Duty™ to take Quatermass homage to the extreme, engaging in some “Vicious Quatermassturbation” as we discuss The Ambassadors OF DEATH! It’s time for incompetent military forces (possibly including murdering scientists?), conspiracies, and plenty of model sequences! Over the course of the episode, Don talks miraculously…
 
This episode, we discuss our very first encounter with the other intelligent species from Earth in Doctor Who and the Silurians.

In this bonus episode, “A Bit Pudgy for a Stormtrooper” Anthony, Don, and Reilly take a side step away from Doctor Who and discuss the 1957 film Quatermass 2!

We’re back - in glorious colour(!) - as we kick off the Pertwee-era with the very highly regarded Robert Holmes standard Spearhead from Space.

That said, there is a treat in store for anyone who enjoys Julie’s singi…
 
In this bonus episode, “Will They, Won’t They?” Anthony and Julie discuss the Second and First Doctor cross-over story from Big Finish - Daughter of the Gods, by David K. Barnes.

Wrapping up the Troughton era, the Watchers are joined by friend-of-the-podcast Alan Siler for a special retrospective of the entire era, recorded LIVE at Wholanta Virtual TARDIS 2021!

In this episode, we shed a tear as the end is finally here for the Second Doctor.

During the episode, Anthony asks how the Doctor has suddenly lost the ability to speak Fre…
 
The end is nigh for the Second Doctor as the TARDIS crew arrive in what appears to be World War One, but not all is as it seems… Continuing our journey through all of Doctor Who, we discuss the first half of the absolute epic that is The War Games, as we start preparing to bid farewell to some familiar faces… During the episode, Reilly finds himsel…

David’s work can be found at the following locations: David’s website Metalocaly…
 
This episode, we bring to you our discussion of a story that is, in the eyes of fandom, one of the worst stories of all time. Seriously, in Doctor Who Magazine’s 50th Anniversary poll, it came in at 7th last. It’s also the last story to have missing episodes. That’s right, it’s the one and only The Space Pirates! Will we find it as bad as accepted …

This episode, we discuss the script debut of the legendary writer Robert Holmes, in a story where a group of students use the power of acid to overthrow their educational overlords! Surprisingly, it’s not footage of student riots from the 1960s – it’s actually The Krotons! Over the course of the episode, Don gets passionate about canon, Reilly cont…
 
This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension pick up where they left off last time, with the TARDIS crew still trying to figure out what’s really happening, and an Invasion still on the horizon, as we discuss the second half of the Troughton-era epic that is The Invasion! Over the course of our discussion, Don casts doubt on Isobel’s photogra…
 
This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension head back to contemporary(ish) Earth, where trouble is brewing with suave businessmen, thuggish paramilitary troops, and a silver menace lurking in the background, as they tackle the first half of The Invasion! Over the course of our discussion, Julie talks about the Doctor’s obnoxious door-bell et…
 
This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension find that reality is getting too hot anyway, and move outside of the confines of our reality and into a world where they could well become works of fiction. It can only be The Mind Robber! Over the course of our discussion, Julie (of course) has strong feelings about the temporary re-casting of Jam…
 
This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension kick off Season 6 of Doctor Who with a more of a whimper than a bang, as they tackle a story that involves two hostile turtles as they seek to dominate an entire planet of hippies and turn it into a radioactive ball of lava.

This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension struggle to hide their sniggers as the Doctor, Jamie, and Victoria face off against some evil weed and its calming effect on people as it tries to take over Earth!

This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension face off against the villainy of the Great Intelligence, the Yeti, and the powers-that-be at the London Underground! It can only be the return of everyone’s favourite chonkers and the introduction of a Doctor Who legend in the once-lost-now-(mostly)-found story that is The Web of Fear! Over the cou…
 
In this bonus episode, “The War on Happy,” the entire Watchers crew convene for a Holiday special, in which they discuss two musical “classics” related to Doctor Who. Guided by our very own Don, we begin with the timeless Christmas classic “I’m Gonna Spend My Christmas with a Dalek” by the Go-Go’s. Not content with the pain that they put themselves…
 
This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension are travelling back to 2018 – where an egotistical and nefarious world leader is trying to stockpile power through increasingly subversive acts of tyranny. No, it’s not real life – it’s the Doctor Who serial The Enemy of the World, and the world leader in question is Salamander, the doppelganger of…
 
This episode, the Watchers in the Fourth Dimension ask themselves “oven mitt or lego hand?” as something is stirring in the ice… in the latest of these seemingly never ending “base under siege” stories, it’s The Ice Warriors!

With many conventions forced to go virtual in 2020, we were invited to participated in a panel for DragonCon, in which we discussed Doctor Who’s Missing Episodes. The result is this special bonus episode, in which we are joined by our old friend R. Alan Siler, and the Director of Dragon Con’s British Media Track (aka the “Brittrack”), Caro McCully …
 
It’s that time again! We’ve reached the end of another season, and so we spend an episode looking back on Season 4, which was a time of enormous change for the show. What were our favourite things from the season, and how does this season stack up against what we’ve seen so far? Does the fact that the majority of this season is missing materially i…
 
Antiques! Alchemy! Time travel! Daleks! David Whitaker! What could possibly go wrong for The Evil of the Daleks!

The Watchers in the Fourth Dimension discuss mad scientists, fish people, and everyone's new favourite companion (or is that favourite new companion?), as they tackle one of the most-maligned stories of the black and white era - The Underwater Menace!

Moving full steam ahead with the Patrick Troughton era, the intrepid Watchers in the Fourth Dimension head to what could seems like the set of Outlander, as they discuss what is the last “pure” historical adventure for quite a long time – it’s The Highlanders!

In this episode, “Pirates of the Caribboring” the Watchers kick-start Season 4 with the swashbuckling adventure known only as “The Smugglers.” Oh... maybe “swashbuckling” and “adventure” oversells it a bit?

In this episode, “Tor Loser,” the team are off to a place where a ruling upperclass lives off the energy and lifeforce of an oppressed working class. No, it’s not Victorian Britain, but actually The Savages - a story that is bizarrely overlooked by a lot of fans, given that it's really quite good. This episode, Anthony gets confused on which story …
