Tread Perilously
Tread Who Perilously Series 2: Episode 6

Erik and Justin's latest stop brings them to 2005 and the first season of the revived Doctor Who. Unfortunately, it means Justin must confront Rose once again as the Doctor confronts the Family Slitheen from Raxacoricofallapatorius. Harriet Jones, MP for Flydale North, makes her first appearance and Justin nearly falls asleep during part 1 of the story. Erik and Justin discuss Rose's audience appeal while Justin rates Christopher Eccelston on the Capaldi scale. Local police stop by and aliens fart.

But at least Peri wasn't in this.

Erik and Justin's journey through time and space bring them to 1969 and the world of the Gonds, conquered by the crystalline Krotons. Erik finally introduces his favorite Doctor to Justin while Justin finds himself quite appreciative of Zoe and Jaime bumbles about with a crowbar. The Gond revolution doesn't go so well and the Krotons wear metal skirts. Wavering 1960s BBC production values are discussed and the Doctor Batmans out of the situation.

Erik and Justin's travels through space and time bring them back to the 1980s and Justin's least favorite period: the John Nathan-Turner era. This week's tale, "Time and the Rani" sees the Doctor regenerate into one of the Istari, a rival Time Lord immediately cosplay as the Doctor's companion and chicken lizard people running with the arm precariously behind their backs. Justin ranks Sylvester McCoy on the Capaldi Scale, Erik reveals he finds Bonnie Langford appealing and both discuss the problem of useless companions. Justin still can't recall Martha Jones by name.

Erik and Justin's next stop on their travels through time and space brings them to 1965's infamous comedy-musical episode of Doctor Who known as "The Gunfighters." When the Doctor gets a toothache, Justin learns the sheer terror of "The Ballad of the Last Chance Saloon." Erik ponders the historical accuracy and both wonder if cowboys had the same mythical cache in the UK as they did in the US. Bad Western accents are spoken and comparisons to "Tombstone" are made.
