"I suppose the best way to find out where you've come from is to find out where you're going and then work backwards."
-- The Fourth Doctor, Doctor Who: "City of Death"
After another strange void in the time/space continuum, my good friend and co-host Jesse Jackson and I are back with another episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! And this time, we're joined by returning special guest companions Karen Lindsay and Ken Schaefer as we explore the Tom Baker classic "City of Death"!
Exploring this Season 17 story from 1979, Jesse, Karen, Ken and I discuss things like the importance of not calling in from your car, using "City of Death" to get people hooked on Doctor Who, the "David Agnew" pseudonym, the ascent of Douglas Adams, Eleanor Bron inspiring the song Eleanor Rigby, the greatness of Julian Glover, the launch of Doctor Who Magazine, Jesse's creepy love of Romana's schoolgirl uniform, watching Doctor Who on Syfy, how the Eleventh Doctor and River Song would work really well in this story, the Sonic Screwdriver as a rite of passage, Jesse's obligatory mention of Classic Who story pacing, our Reverse the Reverse the Polarity segment, how to handle an internet wacko tweeting you strange messages, and more!
