Episode 45: Drashigs or Dishrags

We get taken back to the 1960s, with William Hartnell starring in ‘Carnival of Monsters’ (because this is Time Ram, and whatever Doctor you’re thinking of, Jon Pertwee isn’t it). Our dander’s up as we define fan wank, enrage the Doctor and discuss the origin of the Macra. Now, is that a friendly Drashig or a man in a sack with prongs on?
