Hosted by Glenn and his very special guests, 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!

Today's episode is all about the Bill Potts appreciation! One of the gang of "One and Done" companions, Bill nevertheless has made a big impact on Doctor Who fandom, and Leigh and Glenn want to recognise that. There's also all the usual gubbins, as well as another WHOpinion from Jenny.

Amy and Kirsty visit the Nostalgia TARDIS once more, this time to talk about the 1992 Steven Seagal action flick Under Siege - but we also talk about the evolution of the big, brassy 80's action movies to the slightly more cerebral and slicker 90's take on them.
