Sylvester McCoy's newly regenerated Doctor is fooled by the Rani

PodKast with(out) the Bakers!

Kasterborous Doctor Who podKastA little later than usual, it’s time for the podKast! This week, Christian, James McLean and Brian Terranova discuss the horror that is….

Pip and Jane Baker!

The husband-and-wife team had four sets of scripts on Doctor Who in the 1980s: Mark of the Rani, Terror of the Vervoids, The Ultimate Foe part 2 (both from the Trial of a Time Lord season) and Time and the Rani. Some of these adventures are considered okay… others the very nadir of the show’s almost-fifty years.

But: were they really to blame? Is their reputation as a pair of clueless hacks deserved? Was it simply a case of two capable and experienced writers left to do too much… has their reputation as professionals been sullied by Time and the Rani?

It’s a complex topic, one that we thought we should tackle!

Please note that during the recording of this episode we were… let’s say “challenged”…by circumstances beyond our control. As a result this podKast comes with warning as it includes adult language.
