Episode 47: Zero (Pr)Escher

It seems that in the Time Ram Universe (TRU?) Paul McGann’s Doctor Who was introduced to the Americans in 1996 with… ‘Castrovalva’. In other words, the Master, complex continuity and endless TARDIS scenes. A sure fire hit! In this podcast (guest-starring Melanie Clark), we explore that possibility, but with added card counting, math vs maths and civilisations wiped out by swimming pool Stonehenges. Roundels forever!
