113: Apparently Legendary (The Leisure Hive)

They say that she’s a myth around these parts.

This week Kiyan and Dylan reach into the 1980s for real. By which I mean, everything takes a turn for the synth. Yes, the title theme is synth, the visuals look totally 80s, and everything is in a new decade. It’s The Leisure Hive, written by David Fisher and aired in August and September of 1980.


00:55 We use a piece of the Peter Howell’s theme arrangement as our intro and outro. If you’d like to hear the full theme, it’s on YouTube here.
01:47 You can watch Sid Sutton’s title sequence for the 4th doctor on YouTube as well.
03:09 You can find Triple Play on this very website!
06:28 You can see the full image of Tom and Lalla that we used in the header here. In addition, here’s another promotional image for The Leisure Hive that better shows both of their costumes.
07:49 June Hudson has a rather comprehensive Wikipedia page. Her website contains a portfolio which includes her original concept drawing for Tom’s new costume.
