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.

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?

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.
