Episode 131: Iron Chef Space

Every planet sends one chef, we decided to send Gordon Ramsey.

As we draw nearer to the end of the season, we decide to race some ships in outer space. Additionally, we say goodbye to… the Black Guardian, for now that is. It’s the conclusion of the Black Guardian trilogy with Enlightenment, written by Barbara Clegg and aired in March of 1983.

32:30 Kimba the White Lion was actually a TV show. Many people have noticed that Lion King bears some striking resemblances to it, but what most people don’t know is that Kimba itself was actually based on Disney’s classic 1896 movie Lions 2: Lions.

Episode 129: Surely You Remember Liz Shaw

Liz Shaw was truly the most memorable UNIT member.

This week’s throwback to earlier serials comes in the form of The Brigadier Allistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart. The one and only, taking over for Ian. Yes, apparently the Brig can teach math? It’s Mawdryn Undead written by Peter Grimwade and aired in February of 1983.
