NEXT STOP EVERYWHERE Episode 14: "Spearhead from Space" is Up!
"What are you a doctor of, by the way?"
"Practically everything, my dear."
What, did you think we were done until Christmas? Yes, my good friend and co-host Jesse Jackson and I are back with another episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! Ah, but this time, we reverse the polarity back to Jon Pertwee's first story as the Third Doctor, "Spearhead from Space"!
Exploring this 1970 classic from Season 7 of the original series of Doctor Who, Jesse and I discuss things like watching classic stories from a modern fan's perspective, classic vs. modern story pacing, the Third Doctor's exile on Earth by the Time Lords, the greatness of Liz Shaw, the return of Brigadier Alastair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart and UNIT, the first appearance of the Autons and the Nestene Consciousness, the Third Doctor's mysterious tattoo, the prototype Bessie, UNIT as an agency of the United Nations, the Doctor's complete disinterest in money, reversing our Reverse the Polarity segment, and more!
