Along the way, we cover the reveal of new companion Pearl Mackie, Doc meets his childhood heroes (Bagpuss, Professor Yaffle and Major Clanger), we launch Feistywatch and reveal the link between 2000AD and Toy Story 1.

(01:34:00) “Meltdown Man” was a comic strip created by writer Alan Hebden and artist Massimo Belardinelli which ran in 2000 AD from prog 178 to prog 227 (50 episodes in total) in 1980. It told the tale of Nick Stone, a former S.A.S. officer apparently blasted into a possible future by a nuclear explosion. In this future, in a neat reversal of the classic Planet of the Apes scenario, sadistic humans oppress downtrodden genetically-altered animals (called ‘Yujees’) whom they keep as slaves.
