Tread Who Perilously: Episode 4

Erik and Justin conclude their first series of Tread Who Perilously with "The Horns of Nimon" a story from the classic series Erik has called "the worst Doctor Who story." Does he still think that's true? Justin praises Romana and rates the companions he's seen so far. Douglas Adams' involvement in the story is examined as all praise be to the Nimon. Saldeed becomes one of our favorite villains and Justin tries to wrap his head around the utter lunacy. But, what's in the distance for Series 2? Is there a Time-Flight? A Rani episode? The TV Movie? Time will tell ... it always does.

Tread Who Perilously: Episode 1

Erik and Justin continue their exploration of television with an excursion into the lesser episodes of that sci-fi stalwart, "Doctor Who." Week one introduces Justin to the Jon Pertwee Doctor as they watch "Day of the Daleks," the TV version of a Doctor Who novelization Justin read as a pre-teen. The 70s are on display as the mustaches denote rank, greasy captains steal wine and the Daleks take too many pauses. Time paradoxes are discussed and Justin learns some of his preconceptions of the show are wrong.

Oh, and a stated pacifist shoots an Ogron.
