Episode 35: The Mars Base (In Space)

This Time Ram, we collide fourth Doctor Tom Baker with Patrick Troughton’s ‘The Moonbase’ and wait to see which Doc comes out on top! We also consider these vital questions: Moonbase Alpha or Moonbase 3? How do you wear a scarf in a spacesuit? What do Cybermen have against aerials? Where have all these crabs come from? We also get to consider Harry the gooseberry, Helene Merrien and the Green Cross Code Man. And is that Sam Becket? Hoo boy.
