Episode 52: Nusks of the Rani

This week Time Ram’s grandiloquent predilections lead us to explain Greggs stotties, William Hartnell’s topless pics and how many stories you didn’t realise had the Master in them. Oh yeah, and we also discuss 80s epic ‘The Mark of the Rani’ and attempt to set it in the growing McGann era. So that’s nice.
