We start with Hayden reminiscing about his weekend at “The Capitol” – the Doctor Who Appreciation Society’s 40th anniversary event. If you’ve ever felt envious of his seeming ability to fall on his feet in any fan situation, then you’ve not heard anything yet as his jamminess soars to new heights.
Then, inspired by last time’s discussion of the “Genesis of the Daleks” LP, we try out the audio-only soundtracks of three Doctor Who stories which we’ve previously only ever watched. Would they work as LPs?
