Redux 3: That Vague Memory of 6 Years Ago (The Monster of Peladon)

I only have vague memories of 6 years ago apparently.

In this episode Kiyan will espouse the belief that you should watch Monster of Peladon every single day, over and over and over again until you get it. Now I don’t necessarily disagree, but I have to wonder, is that what people want us to do with The Massacre? And if so, how is this not just some sort of twisted version of stockholm syndrome? It’s Monster of Peladon, written by Brian Hayles and aired between March 23 and April 27, 1974.


8:13: The basic premise of 4 to Doomsday is that some aliens are on a spaceship headed to earth and are going to wipe out humanity with a virus.
12:05: According to the Doctor Who wiki the Fourth Doctor used a sonic lance on his sonic screwdriver in Robot.
21:30: I was talking about The Aims of Discourse by James Kinneavey. You can read it at that link for free with a jstor account.
38:43: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast. We’re currently (at the time of writing this) watching Sapphire and Steel.
1:04:36: Looks like Cold Warrior is just a random tv show from 1984. I could barely find any info about it other than this wiki page and an even more threadbare imdb page.
