Redux 6 : Chekhov’s Stinger (Mindwarp)

It’s like a shitty version of the mystery mobile.

Alright gang buckle up because we’re coming to the end of this insane ride and we’re doing it right. And by doing it righ I mean we’re mindwarping ourselves, so I’ll putting my brain in Kiyan and he’s putting his brain in me and then absolutely nothing will change because as it turns out in the TYD canon we don’t really have defined characters. Or do we? Also we’ll be retconning that away in two weeks when we start Torchwood so. It’s Mindwarp, written by Philip Martin and aired between October 4th and 25th, 1986.
