Shana was a bit tired at the beginning of this one, but once we started talking about sexy Tom Baker and Lis Sladen she perked right up. Where we've been the last couple of months, a new direction for the podcast, imperialist racism, and The Pyramids of Mars.
Main Topic: Pyramids of Mars. A long absence. Turning 30. Queerness. Interrupted by one of our cats. Queerness and Doctor Who. Leaked Series 8 scripts. Moffaty goodness (if you're into that sort of thing). Doctor Who costumes. The Donkey Head of Doom. Shana's attraction to the Fourth Doctor. Shana summarizes Pyramids of Mars. Shana is a bad fan. Daniel doesn't like mummy movies as done by Doctor Who. The "Sam Seely character." The Scarman Brothers. Sarah Jane and sexism. The chemistry between Lis Sladen and Tom Baker. "I walk in eternity." Is Sutekh imprisoned on Mars or in Egypt? Discussing the fate of Sutekh. The late great Robert Holmes. Sutekh as a great villain. Laurence Scarman and the radio telescope. A trivia question for Shana. Sarah Jane shoots a rifle! Pyramids of Mars and the pop culture of 1975. "Chariots of the Gods" and racism. "Vaguely swarthy" as a racial characteristic. Indiana Jones meets Doctor Who. Shana answers her trivia question. Sarah Jane and the Unit Dating Controversy. Ending with a quote from Sarah Jane Smith.
