Tread Perilously – ‘Doctor Who: The Mind Robber’

Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.

This Week: Doctor Who‘s “The Mind Robber”

Doctor Who Month continues with a return to the 1960s for a story called “The Mind Robber.”

When The Doctor tries to save the TARDIS from a lava flow, he, Jamie, and Zoe are caught in a white, featureless void. But soon, it comes to life with eerily familiar personae and more riddles and games than one can believe. But will the trio ascertain the real nature of their predicament in time to stop an invasion of the Earth? Also, what’s going on with Jamie’s face? And while we’re at it, why is the Karkus so formidable? And just who is this “Master” we keep hearing about?

Drew Siragusa joins Erik and Justin for a journey through the Land of Fiction that will get stuck on Zoe’s sparkly catsuit. It leads to a discussion of “something for the dads.” Other topics include Justin’s delight to be with his favorite TARDIS team, the relationship between the Second Doctor and Jamie, a “Master” who is not the Master, and the way the early Doctor Who female companions were written. A discussion of Shazam: Fury of the Gods breaks out, and the group surveys David Tennant’s infamous call to Wendy Padbury. Also, Justin and Erik trade notes on The Cure.
