Right! Cut it open! As Josh, Steven, Toby and Andrew embark on Episode 3 of Ambassadors of Death, we marvel at William Dysart’s performance which is very underrated. Is Liz future-cosplaying as Skagra from Shada? Does everyone only have an accent on videotape and not film? What is the inside baseball on Margo Hayhoe Pauline Sylcock? and you will definitely learn more during this episode than you ever should. Between Cyril Shapps, Ronald Allen, William Dysart, and Michael Wisher it is character-actor heaven Enjoy!

Episode 2 of Ambassadors of Death starts with some actual magic by Jon Pertwee, but we all accept that he is actually holding Marco Polo Part 1 in his hand when he performs his “magic”. Transmigration of objects is not something we see again and Josh, Steven, Andrew and Toby are thrilled about that. We realize if we see Alan Chuntz, he is going to die, but if you see Max Faulkner, he will get a line before he dies. Is “Get in Ms. Shaw” in a French accent? Toby won’t have it. Enjoy the hair dryers and Episode 2.

Another new week, and another week of new High Council members. Josh is lucky enough to have procured the services of Toby Hadoke, Andrew Smith and Steven Schapansky for the amazing Jon Pertwee story “Ambassadors of Death”. Yes, a 7 part story – a new experiment for High Council. That said, we intend to break the curse of the original commentary that Toby moderated and hopefully we survive next seven weeks! Unbelievably we survive the sting of the cold open and at the end! Is Doctor Taltallian wearing a pair of Groucho Marx glasses? Does Derek Ware die at least two times in the shoot-em-up scene in the warehouse? Put the carnation in your lapel and enjoy Episode 1 of Ambassadors of Death!

We play the game again….Time Lord. As we start Part 4 of Curse of Fenric, Josh, Chris and Kat debate the existence of a black hole in the middle of the Milky Way Galaxy or a Milky Way candy bar. We spend the episode interrupting Judson when he’s eulogizing!! This is easy when it is raining and sunny at the same time. While we had different views of the story when it began, we decided to work together as comrades to get through the remainder of the story. We won’t let the governments of war determine who should love this story and who shouldn’t. Blown away.
