Episode 50: Doctor Who-Colony in Space

Which, after nearly two years, your heroes reach episode 50!

After a report on the Torchwood: Miracle Day signing attended by Martyn and Paul from The Pharos Project, we take a look at the Doctor Who episode ‘Colony in space’.  In this episode, we delve into the classic Doctor Who adventure “Colony in Space,” which originally aired in 1971. Starring Jon Pertwee as the Third Doctor and Katy Manning as his companion Jo Grant, “Colony in Space” takes the TARDIS crew to a distant planet where human colonists are struggling to survive against a ruthless mining corporation and the native alien inhabitants.

We explore the conflict between the human colonists and the mining corporation, and how it reflects real-world issues of corporate greed and exploitation. We also examine the portrayal of the alien race, and how it challenges traditional science fiction stereotypes. We discuss the performances of Jon Pertwee and Katy Manning, and how they embody the Doctor and his companion in this adventure.
