"I can feel my hair curling. And that can mean either it's going to rain...or that I'm on to something."
-- The Fourth Doctor to Engin, Doctor Who: "The Deadly Assassin"
My partner in crime and partner in time Jesse Jackson and I are back with a new episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! In this episode, we review "The Deadly Assassin," the classic story from 1976 starring Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor and Peter Pratt as the Master!
This time, Jesse and I discuss things like being at the mercy of the Dallas Cowboys football schedule, writer Robert Holmes introducing important concepts to the Doctor Who mythos, the Doctor being a frat boy on Gallifrey, the Second Master's emaciated state, why the Master has gone through more lives than the Doctor, revisiting my personal theory of why the Doctor originally left Gallifrey, James Bond movie connections, the book and movie The Manchurian Candidate, the Doctor's homecoming on Gallifrey, the Doctor gently stroking the TARDIS, the Wachowskis swiping The Matrix from The Matrix, the introduction of Rassilon and the Eye of Harmony, wondering why the Time Lords limit themselves to only twelve regenerations if they can give the Doctor more, Emperor Palpatine looking suspiciously like the Second Master, my Reverse the Reverse the Polarity segment, sending good thoughts to Karen and her husband, and more!
