It’s our final podcast of 2013 and we have reached the end of the Pertwee era! How does the Third Doctor’s finale stand up today? What did we think of the era as a whole. Have we had a startling epiphany or do we still think it’s best avoided?
Donna has something on her back…(ahem) Sorry, getting 36 years ahead of ourselves there.
Sarah has something on her back… Mike finds religion and the Doctor has the longest chase in history, using (deep breath) cars, boats, bicycles, hovercrafts, Whomobiles, milk floats, mobility scooters, stairs, elevators, stilts, pogo sticks, roller-skates, hang-gliders, canoes, trains, tanks, swimming, shopping trolleys, rickshaws, hot air balloons, parachutes, zip wires, helicopters, elephants, those things window cleaners use to go up and down, skiing, free-running, skateboards, hoverboards, DeLoreans, a hospital trolley on a stairwell, ejector seats, an empty cello case, a bus that can’t go below 50, carnival floats, jet packs, surfboards, pushchairs, horses, slides, submarines, a pony and trap, motorbikes, rockets, fighter jets, bungee jumping, segways, space hoppers, lolo balls, magic carpets, an egg and spoon race, escalators, the tube, cable cars, a space hopper, circus cannons, an angry birds catapult and a tramp.
But before he can get his breath back, he dies of embarrassment when Incey Wincey Spider asks him to tap dance.
It’s going to be one of those days… Ommmmm
Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year! We’ll be back on the 10th of January 2014 with… Robot!
