A new week, a new story, and a new set of High Council Members! We’re back to Perivale circa 1989! Josh is joined by the estimable author Graeme Burk, uber Toronto-based fan Lori Steuart, and NPR book genius Petra Meyer to discuss the Doctor Who that sounded the death-nell for the original series. The Catastic tale (or tail) of Survival with the Yellow eyed Ace.

Doctor Who – The High Council has broken it’s Episode 7 cherry this week, and I think you will agree, the High Council Members are a little punchy. Josh is joined once again by David Agnew, Stephen Harris and Robin Bland and who knows who is in the Palestinian Free State? So as we talk about guns, Liz’s outfit, and William Dysart’s MULTIPLE outfits, we continue our moral duty of completing this amazing long story. Great stories about Les Conrad, The Twin Dilemma, Toby’s experience as Charlie Chaplin and Bin Man the Heretic, and trimmed mustaches. You will love the banter – so put this episode in your MP3 device on repeat.

It’s on collision course! Take EVASIVE ACTION!!! The punchiness comes in as this High Council team drives towards talking over Episode 6. Is it possible that it hasn’t been Toby Hadoke this whole time, and it is really David Agnew? Andrew’s presence in Greenland caused some issues with this episode, but Gangsters returns to help us through these tough parts. Is this episode also put together from the archives? Is it possible to have CSO in B&W? I don’t think so. Please enjoy this episode that ended up wrought with serious recording problems and play close attention to Carrington’s mustache till next week.

And with Andrew and Josh in Scotland, and Steven and Toby hanging on after a difficult week of arguing over Derek Martin, we collectively pursue Part 5 of Ambassadors of Death. So, enough of that and more about Cyril Shapps! Who knew that Cyril celebrated the Jewish Sabbath? Toby, of course. Throwing in “Mr. Kipling makes exceedingly good cakes” to boot. And again, who are the names behind the latex monster masks? Or who are the names of the actors of the lesser characters in the show – this is why it is fun to have these High Council members on the show. But if there are no knives and forks on a tray, I would suggest that it could just be a radioactive isotope.

As we begin Ambassadors of Death Part 4 – Liz is in Trouble, Josh, Andrew, Steven and Toby are telling stories about Derek Martin, an uncredited member of HAVOC. While Andrew shows his moral duty, regarding the man’s behavior, we quickly move onto the commentary. Why the tin foil walls and colorful wires connected to the wall? So you learn a little about explosions in enclosed areas, quick cuts, and the wonderful facial bandage that the Doctor sports for a few scenes afterwards. While we examine whether Doctor Taltalian has a French accent on film, we discuss the backdrop of people taking the mickey out of Doctor Who. That said, we are collectively affectionate about the show, and only make fun because we love it. So come join us, enjoy it affectionately, and still take the mickey out of Ambassadors of Death Part 4!
