Battle FinalThe white heat of technology is called upon to save the day this week as, while Doc and Hayden sit warm in The Whoseum, poor Matt still hasn’t got away from work. So during their review of the Doctor Who episodes “Sleep No More” and “Face the Raven”, one third of the Four Faces of Delusion contributes via his phone while dashing around the former Coronation Street set putting out the lights and locking the doors, and then from the top deck of the Number 192 bus during a hair-raising journey along the A6.

Along the way, we hear how Matt avoided a Judy Finnegan moment during his own Oscars moment, we cover the BBC’s 1970s child-scarer “The Changes” and its relevance even today for bringing communities together, we bemoan Doctor Who’s habit of giving us rubbish soldiers and we debate the correct plural of hiatus.
