Episode 227: Doctor Who-Survival

Martyn, Sam, and Chris discuss the 1989 episode of Doctor Who ‘Survival’.

Survival is the final serial of the 26th season and also the final story of the original 26-year run of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, which was originally broadcast in three weekly parts on BBC1 from 22 November to 6 December 1989. It marks the final regular television appearance of Anthony Ainley as the Master and of Sophie Aldred as Ace. It is also the last regular television appearance of Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor.

Journalist Matthew Sweet has described Survival as “a parable about Thatcherism”. In the serial, the renegade Time Lord the Master kidnaps humans from contemporary Perivale and uses the teenager Midge (Will Barton) to facilitate his escape from the disintegrating planet of the Cheetah People.

We’ve covered this story once before, listen here.

Dalek tells humans to stay home

A Dalek has been spotted ordering people to stay indors.

Most of the UK is currently on a government-ordered lockdown as part of a national effort to save lives, although there are some members of the public who’ve been disregarding the guidelines this weekend, due to unseasonabily warm weather.

A video posted on Twitter has shown a Dalek, roaming the street in a countryside village.

As people have been so blatantly flouting the guidelines, I think we need Nicholas Briggs to redub this video with the official voice of the Daleks.

Episode 223: Doctor Who-Praxeus and can you hear me?

Martyn, Sam, and Chris are back. On episode 223 of The Bad WIlf Podcast, they discuss the Doctor Who episodes “Praxeus” and “Can you hear me?”.

In Praxeus, The Doctor and her companions investigate a bacterium that covers human bodies in a crystalline substance before disintegrating them. Aided by ex-police officer Jake, blogger Gabriela, and medical researcher Suki, they find Jake’s husband Adam in the early stages and take him to Suki’s lab to evaluate while Yaz and Gabriela explore the site where they found Jake, eventually finding a teleport to an alien location. The Doctor determines the bacterium is drawn to microplastics. Suki reveals she is from an alien race devastated by the bacterium they called Praxeus, and had come to Earth to evaluate it further for a cure. While the Doctor finds a cure for humans, using a willing Adam to test it, it cannot stop Praxeus from affecting Suki and soon disintegrates her. Travelling to Yaz’ location, they find they are under the Indian Ocean garbage patch, where Suki’s ship is located. They load the ship’s reserves with the antidote and set the ship to self-destruct in the atmosphere to disperse it, but Jake willingly pilots the vessel when the autopilot fails. The Doctor materialises the TARDIS around Jake, saving him moments before the explosion. With Praxeus stopped, the Doctor suggests Jake, Adam, and Gabriela travel the world together.

In ‘Can you hear me?’ The Doctor returns her companions home, where they simultaneously begin to experience supernatural events. Graham sees visions of an imprisoned girl telling him to find her, Ryan sees a mysterious figure cause his friend to vanish, and Yaz sees an unfamiliar woman among memories of her past. The Doctor, still in the TARDIS, receives a signal from 14th century Aleppo, where she meets a young woman named Tahira, a mental patient. Following their strange experiences, the companions contact the Doctor, who uses Graham’s visions to track the source of the nightmares. They are led to a ship in the future piloted by Zellin, who claims to be immortal and omnipotent.[4] After putting the companions and Tahira out of action, Zellin uses the Doctor’s instincts to free the imprisoned girl, Rakaya, another immortal being like himself, who has been feeding on their dreams. The Doctor tricks Zellin and Rakaya back into their imprisonment. Yaz repays an old debt to a police officer she met three years earlier.

Sophie Aldred writes Doctor Who book

Doctor Who: At Childhood’s End is the first Doctor Who novel from Sophie Aldred who played the Seventh Doctor’s friend Ace, published 6th February 2020.

Once, a girl called Ace travelled the universe with the Doctor – until, in the wake of a terrible tragedy they parted company. Decades later, she is known as Dorothy McShane, the reclusive millionaire philanthropist who heads global organisation A Charitable Earth.

Dorothy is haunted by terrible nightmares, vivid dreams that begin just as scores of young runaways are vanishing from the dark alleyways of London. Could the disappearances be linked to sightings of sinister creatures lurking in the city shadows? Why has an alien satellite entered a secret orbit around the Moon?

Investigating the satellite with Ryan, Graham and Yaz, the Doctor is thrown together with Ace once more. Together they must unravel a malevolent plot that will cost thousands of lives. But can the Doctor atone for her past incarnation’s behaviour – and how much must Ace sacrifice to win victory not only for herself, but for the Earth? Past or future, which path do you choose?

Sophie Aldred said:

“I was thrilled and honoured to have been asked to create this opportunity for the Thirteenth Doctor and Ace to meet each other. I had always hoped to be able to offer classic fans an encounter between Ace and a current Doctor in some form or other and I hope fans of the present team will enjoy the blending of two eras of the most amazing programme in the Universe.”

At Childhood’s End will also be available as an audiobook in CD and digital download from 6th February 2020, narrated by Sophie Aldred.
