A Classic Doctor Who podcast presented by a brother and sister who are podcasting together despite living a world and many time zones apart. Andy in England, Alex in New Zealand. Both are old enough to have seen old Who back in the day, Andy was born during the Pertwee era and Alex during Tom Baker's. They play quizzes, review a story in-depth every episode, ask each other what TV they've been watching, and choose to listen to old pop songs on a Time-Space Visualiser. Why not join their world?

We've been on a bit more than a summer break, but we're back and its about (World Enough and) Time...This month we go back to our roots and the very first story we covered on the podcast way back in 2017: Spearhead from Space.

It’s a far worse thing we do now than we have ever done on the podcast… yes, that’s right, we’re going to review The Ultimate Foe. Revisionist agendas and the recent release of the season on Blu-Ray has done little to persuade Andy & Alex of the value of this pantomime-esque runaround which receives their lowest score yet. Andy is incandescent with…

It’s time to go back to the heady days of 1982 when Cybermen were cool, death was shocking and the Fifth Doctor was serving as a proxy father to three children. Yes it’s Eric Saward’s game-changing blockbuster Earthshock. There’s no denying that it blew Andy away as a kid but how does he feel about it now? And what does Alex make of this ‘Davison c…

Andy and Alex are still together in Auckland so in a 'High Cockalorum' mood. Will 1983's Frontios prove to be downer?After sharing their new Myers-Briggs types and a story titles quiz that quite frankly stumps them, the pair get into it. They find much to enjoy here, especially Janet's pleather mini and the opening TARDIS scene, but it's not long b…

Is it hot in here or are we just in a parallel universe?Andy & Alex uncover sexual metaphor aplenty as they grab Greg’s huge pipe, experience a dodgy flange, and get all angry (and hairy) as they reach Penetration Zero.

It's hard not to be disappointed by The Armageddon Factor, but Andy and Alex do their very best to find the good in it.

This month's story prompts Alex to remember what can only be described as 'a day of nicking' back in 1993. And having bravely shoplifted the story she can't help but feel a greater investment in this particular Davison adventure. There is much talk of Liza Goddard (and Lionel Blair), the blond one from Kajagoogoo, and what Nyssa had for breakfast. …

Did it prompt …

It's 2022 and Andy and Alex celebrate the fact that its 30 years (30!) since The Tomb of the Cybermen was returned to the archives.

After a brief hiatus - they got caught in a time eddy - Andy and Alex return to tackle Andy's favourite story of all time: Pyramids of Mars.
