S2 E2 - An Adventure in Space and Titillation
Doctor Who is bloody old now, and what better way to celebrate it than get a bunch of Doctors together and get them not to play the Doctor. In this episode Dylan and Jack look at 30th anniversary "special" 'The Airzone Solution' staring Jon Pertwee, Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy. Written by Nick Briggs and directed by Bill Baggs, this oddity has almost nothing to do with Doctor Who. Then they look at 40th birthday bash 'Zagreus' from Big Finish, much like 'The Airzone Solution' this stars Jon Pertwee, Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy not playing the Doctor at all, but fortunately Paul McGann is there playing Zagreus and sometimes the Doctor. The 3 hour and 55 minute epic is written by Gary Russell (who also serves as director) and Alan Barnes.
