Taking a turn away from the usual podKast format this week, we head back in time, not to 2005, but to 1985, and the much-maligned Colin Baker story Timelash.
Over the past week, the Kasterborous team of Christian Cawley, Brian A Terranova and James McLean has watched Timelash (in varying degrees of completion) and they report back now, dear listener, for your interest and entertainment. Could it be that Glen McCoy’s script is, in fact, unfairly derided by fans, desperate to highlight a weak point of an already mixed run of episodes?
For those of you who don’t know, Timelash – this week’s only recommendation – stars Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant as the Doctor and Peri, who find themselves on the planet Karfel were the population are terrorised by the sinister Borad. Guest starring Blake’s 7 star Paul Darrow (currently seen in Contradiction) as the villainous Tekker and including a historical figure in the proceedings, the story has long been lambasted by fans.
PodKast Series 4 Episode 52 introduction by John Guilor. Theme tune this week is the Peter Howell arrangement, which featured on Timelash.
