Hosted by Glenn and Phil, this podcast is a virtual trip back in time to the halcyon days of our childhood - the 1980s (and early 1990s). Every week we explore at least one facet of 80's pop culture, discuss questions from our listeners, and report the news from at least 4 of the main franchises of the 80's that are still around today!

Welcome to episode 2 of Nerva Beacon - your one stop shop of Doctor Who goodness! This week, Leigh and Glenn explore the role of religion in Doctor Who, (especially during the RTD years) and also have a chat about the Master and Missy, and their changing faces over the years!

There are also episode recaps of Extremis and The Pyramid at the End of the World, as well as potentially spoilery speculation aboout what may come in The Lie of the Land!

Diddly Dum, Diddly Dum, Diddly Dum, OO-EE-OOOOOOO!

It's the "look how much politics went on behind the scenes of Doctor Who in the Eighties" episode! Yes gang, while we were watching behind our sofas, ACTUAL REAL horror was going on behind the curtain of 80's Doctor Who. Learn all about the various goings on, as well as all the changes to the crew of the TARDIS, as Baker turned into Davison, turned into another Baker, turned into McCoy, turned into "Indefinite Hiatus".

So join Glenn, Paula and Sam, as they take the Nostallgia TARDIS into a Journey Into Indignity!

Paula went to Dimension Jump, the Red Dwarf convention, and she has exciting stories to tell! Tales of adventure, of meeting actors and podcast team members, of dragons and sorcery...the last two might not be true. Or are they?*

The team also have a good old chat about the Boys from the Dwarf, why they like the series so much, their favourite episodes and lines from the show, and why Rimmer is the best character in the history of everything.

So join us, as we go 3 million years into the future, where there is only beer and curries, and everything smells like the inside of a bag of dry roasted peanuts.

*They aren't.
