Episode 56: Cardboard Cutout of Hartnell

Plot twist: The First Doctor returns! (Just kidding!)

This week Kiyan and Dylan investigate The Ambassadors of Death, which featured hilariously overpowered villains. Also, they take a dive into the themes of Malcolm Hulke, including xenophobia and socialism! And they discuss the Doctor’s characterizations and the start of the reboot! The Ambassadors of Death was credited to David Whitaker, although it was actually mostly written by Trevor Ray for episode 1 and Malcolm Hulke for episodes 2-7.  It aired in March and May of 1970.

We didn’t have anything to say.

Everything’s ok though, we somehow found 30 minutes of content about a 2 episode serial, The Edge of Destruction, written by David Whitaker and aired in February, 1964. We forgot to mention the name of the serial we are watching next week, which is Marco Polo.
