Jeremy Radick joins us again a the top of Season 15 for a nice, leisurely tour of a lighthouse on a perfectly serene evening. Everything is just fine. Nothing unusual or alarming.
We task ourselves this week with identifying just a few of the briefly-met characters who we wish had another opportunity, large or small, to return to the program. It could be a passing cameo, a where-are-they-now glimpse into their lives after having met and interacted with the Doctor, or even a full episode adventure with them past, present, or future.
If broadcasts of Earth films ever get picked up by Sontaran fleets, this may be their reviews of what we consider “classics”. We really don’t expect them to be appreciated. We do, however, have a pretty entertaining time trying to figure out exactly what movie our noble knobby-headed warrior is ranting about.
Back to Gallifrey without a companion, we watch the Fourth Doctor deal with his Time Lord kin in ways he couldn’t have anticipated…even if he *is* Prydonian. We all lament the complete lack of a single female actor in the story, but resoundingly appreciate the invaluable additions to a fuller understanding of Time Lord culture. (Or at least bureaucracy.)
