    24 December 2023 (1:59pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 2 hours, 48 minutes and 0 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The Krynoid PodCast boys welcome you back to the Green Cathedral this Yuletide to offer you perhaps the closest thing to a pantomime that '60s Who gets, The Underwater Menace.

    What the heck is the Doctor wearing and why?

    Is the rest of the Atlanteans' male grooming as lax as their eyebrows?

    How will Polly's groovy new gills go down on the swinging King's Road?

    And did this soggy saga float Jim and Martin's boats or was it like watching a shipwreck?

    Listen to find out! 

    This episode can also be found at iTunes/Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Audible and all other podcatchers (as far as we know).

    You can also find us on Facebook, Threads and Bluesky (but we've exited X - far too Musky for our tastes these days).

    Thanks for listening and Happy Holidays!

    They say "when in Rome, do as the Romans do".

    But Barbara wants no part of what Nero wants to do and Ian has had a belly full of orders from the expansionist Italians. The Doctor and Vicki, meanwhile, have a great time lying about lyres and nearly poisoning a despot but it's no surprise when it all goes up in flames.

    The Doctor and Romana find themselves slumming it in a pocket-sized parallel universe.

    Worse still, they land on the home world of - loathe him or hate him - the boy Adric. Chuck in a few indecisive Deciders, some evolving arachnids and a bunch of amphibian Gumbies, and it's another trying jaunt for our two intrepid Time Lords.

    The Doctor is still on trial with the Time Lords and this is his dubious evidence for the defence.

    The Doctor takes Tegan back to see some of her history with the usual unwelcome results.

    In a future world where men (almost) wear their y-fronts outside their jump suits, T-Mat is the mode of travel du jour.

    We're back with another batch of legacy episodes from the dusty depths of the Krynoid PodCast archive.

    This time it's all change as Sylvester McCoy with a wig regenerates into Sylvester McCoy without a wig.

    The Rani cosplays as Mel Bush while the Doctor plays the spoons (and the fool) and the whole thing can only be described as batfood crazy.

    Direct Podcast Download

    Roving reporter, Sarah Jane Smith, gets more of a scoop than she bargained for when she gatecrashes UNIT's scientist sleepover.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 2 hours, 25 minutes and 11 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The First Doctor and chums go for a whistle-stop tour of the wonderful world of Marinus.

    Which is a great holiday venue, providing you avoid its cities, mountains, seas and jungles. And the intrepid traveller should also beware of flappy-footed gimps, trouserless tour guides, randy trappers and the Knights Who Say "Ni".

    The Doctor and Romana go on their hols for a water and bouillabaisse blowout by the banks of the Seine.

    17 January 2023 (12:28pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 2 hours, 8 minutes and 4 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The Third Doctor probably thought things were bad enough - stuck on Earth as he was with a dud TARDIS, a scatty hippy and a bunch of squaddies.

    But now he has to contend with CSO in his sink, a bunch of Mr Blobbys on his lawn and a loud-mouthed mentalist with a grudge. Luckily his former selves turn up to make things even worse.

    Direct Podcast Download

    Back to re-uploading our 30 earliest episodes...

    Jim and Martin spring a festive surprise with some new Krynoid PodCast material!

    They scan the snowless Snowdonian slopes for monstrous myths and find the Doctor giving an old friend a bell, Victoria repeating herself and Jamie threatening everyone with a bagpipe recital.

    But did The Abominable Snowmen thaw their cockles or give them the cold shoulder. Listen to find out!

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 56 minutes and 34 seconds

    Herein, a very tentative sounding Jim and Martin discuss their history with Doctor Who and compare NuWho to Classic Who.

    Apologies for the sound quality. It does get better in future episodes. And apologies for Jim's over use of samples. They start and stop here.

    14 March 2021 (6:44pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 2 hours, 49 minutes and 38 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    So it’s time to go home for Andy Pandy fangirl, Sarah Jane Smith.

    And there’s a hand pulling the strings in this show too, giving tupperware a bad name and Professor Watson a bad day at the power plant.

    Handily, crystalline cosmic crook Eldrad can reform herself from her moribund mitt and then she herself suffers from a wandering hand from her leading man.

    For a change, we leave a quarry to land on an alien planet where ‘she’ becomes a ‘he’, the decibel level rockets and he – and the serial – fall off a cliff.

    But is it OK to fancy Eldrad?

    How many (if any) puerile ‘ring’ jokes should be allowed in one podcast episode?

    And do Jim and Martin think The Hand of Fear deserves a thumbs up? Or do they give it the finger?

    Listen and you might get an answer to some or none of the above.

    The lads also review the brand new audiobooks of Dalek and The Crimson Horror!

    Also available on Spotify.

    Direct Podcast Download

    Welcome to The Fun Factory: trespassers will be self-prosecuted.

    The Valeyard (aka The Flaw Doctor) makes the most of a unique Time Lord feature and gives his own SJW predecessor a right legal leathering on Space Station SFX.

    But they still find time for trips to Camber Quicksands and Popplewick’s House of Exploding Quills, where the waiting room is spacious but gives you that sinking feeling.

    The Doctor quotes, the Master gloats and Glitz dotes on bank notes, while the Keeper is not averse to the odd slide tackle to protect his Panatropic Net (even though Mel always aims for row Z).

    But did Jim and Martin find The Ultimate Foe ultimately forgettable or a worthy way to end an era?

    Listen to find out.

    Direct Podcast Download

    You may think life can’t get much worse at the moment but locked-down Brexity Britain looks positively idyllic compared to Blighty under the rubber skirt of Dalek rule.

    This septic isle is overrun with motorised dustbins, headphone-wearing dullards who’ve really let themselves go and the most unrealistic pet since K9.

    The Doctor falls on his coccyx, Susan falls in love, Ian falls out of a door and Babs falls in with a rough crowd and TWOKs a dustcart. Luckily, a fratricidal fellow rebel lends two hands and Mr Rumbold lends his ears but the perma-grumpy Mrs Briers fails to stop Babs succumbing to crones.

    Would you buy a used mattress from a Dalek?

    Is the entry exam for the Roboman Academy too difficult?

    How many floating corpses would it take to put you off a glass of water?

    And did Jim and Martin find The Dalek Invasion of Earth to be a glorious triumph or a misbegotten folly?

    Direct Podcast Download

    What could be more fun at Christmas than a Punch and Judy show?

    Almost anything, of course, but perhaps even puppety domestic violence is preferable to mental subservience to an ancient evil.

    This is the lot of tetchy Tegan, who’s red in tooth and eye again, but at least she gets to spread the hate with an embryonic Doc Martin this time around.

    Nyssa cosplays a deckchair and the Doctor indulges in some heavy breathing, while Mr Sladen is forced to reflect on the viability of his shoddy little booth. Lon’s special dress is even shorter than his temper but not as skimpy as his mum’s interest in Ambril’s antiques.

    But did Jim and Martin find Snakedance becoming or did they conclude that that’s not the way to do it?

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 3 hours, 43 minutes and 54 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    When is a talkative chair not a talkative chair?

    When it’s an alien shower curtain. Or a stumpy git in a pith helmet.

    But, underwhelming as they are, the Vardans still plan an Invasion of Time by conquering pound-shop Gallifrey – a land of medicinal jelly beans, powerful ping pong balls and walnut-chomping dropouts.

    Its denizens include Chancellor Borusa who’s more put-upon than Tom Baker’s beer mat and Castellan Kelner who’s slimier than a newly-painted Myrka. And, of course, a prototype Romana who’s qualified to wield a screwdriver but can’t hack it in the university of life, even with a bumper pack of Giant Smarties at her side.

    The Doctor shouts, K9 snarks and Leela shacks up with an innocent bystander, while the surprise Sontarans stomp about, searching in vain for a jellied eels stall.

    But did Jim and Martin find the story an all-conquering triumph or was it just an unwelcome invasion of their time?

    Direct Podcast Download

    Scream if you want to leave faster!

    That seems to be Victoria’s tactic as she sobs, whimpers and shrieks her way out of the show in Fury From The Deep.

    Indeed, old Leather Lungs’ prodigious output is harnessed to harass some killer kelp and make its human puppets less weedy – even beating the expert man-mismanager John Robson for decibels in the process.

    Jamie opts out of a foam party and, for a change, it’s the Doctor who can’t control his chopper. Meanwhile, Mr Wint and Mr Kidd need to rethink their dental hygiene regimes and Perkins would be better off seeking his raison d’etre than searching for a spouse.

    Has Maggie Harris been at the Mother’s Ruin?

    Does the new animation place the story deeper within the long arms of the lore?

    And did Fury From The Deep sweep Jim and Martin along or leave them beached on the shores of ennui?

    A museum? On a planet, you say?

    Amazingly, that’s just where TARDIS brings Doctor Who and chums in The Space Museum. But the problems here are worse than an expensive gift shop, a blocked urinal or a coach party of feral school kids.

    For the planet Xeros is occupied by the moaning Morocks, a race only slightly less pathetic than the indigenous teenage beatniks, among whom subjugation raises barely/only an eyebrow.

    And our plucky travellers have problems of their own, chiefly their future starring roles in the most boring tourist attraction since the financially disastrous Sensorites’ Sexy Sashes exhibition.

    Our heroes deal with the trauma in their own individual ways though, with the Doctor kipping for an episode, Vicki stirring up the students, Babs having a smoke break and Ian chewing her cardigan.

    Will the time travellers evade their fate?

    Would you buy a used glass from Vicki?

    What day is Nude Day on the TARDIS?

    And did Jim and Martin find themselves informed and entertained by The Space Museum or is it just a dusty old relic?

    A bit of holiday advice from the Green Cathedral: better a staycation in Blighty than a sojourn on Uxarieus, a planet more miserable than Raymond Cusick at a Dalek memorabilia auction.

    But this monochrome blob of clay is surprisingly sought after, with hairy hippies and corporate breadheads alike fighting to the death over it. And perhaps the indigenous residents might even feel they have a claim to the land. Not that anyone cares about that, of course.

    As well as providing mud, rain and a single flower, Uxarieus offers a mother lode of the very mineral that the twelvty squillion residents of 25th Century Earth desperately need and the very eff-off WMD the Master evilly craves.

    So, to this end, the future Rev Magister pretends to be an Adjudicator while the wiggy Cap'n Dent tries to put the willies up the colonists with rubbish robots and home videos of his pet gecko.

    Throw in a crap puppet, prune-faced priests, over-Botoxed primitives and a prescient nod to a taboo TV host and we have something of a carnival of monsters.

    But did Jim and Martin warm to the wet February clay pit that is the Colony In Space or did it leave them colder than Terry Walsh's wobbly bits?

    As travel restrictions relax, maybe it’s time to give Cully’s Adventures Unlimited a whirl?

    His ship’s a bit of a squeeze but the elderly Lothario can secretly sail you to the enticing Island of Death with its distinctive countryside, prestigious museum and friendly fellow tourists, The Dominators.

    Their Quarks are as cheesy as they sound – and they sound ridiculous. Nevertheless they’re more than capable of duffing up the docile Dulkians, who are wetter than a Sea Devil’s shower cap.

    TV’s Brian Cant offers some resistance for a while but then departs for a smoke so it’s up to Jamie, Zoe, the Doctor and some other bloke dressed as the Doctor to save the day.

    But what the heck is a rob’t?

    Will Rago and Toba ever seek marriage guidance?

    What did Cully witness when Jamie climbed that ladder?

    And did The Dominators recharge Jim and Martin’s batteries or leave them as demoralised as a person pretending to be a dummy of a person?

    Many of you may still be locked up with your family but, with any luck, your house-mates don’t include a glowing alien skull, a gun-toting Teuton and a creepy occultist.

    Even Benylin Bandersnatch’s mum would be of little comfort, haunted as she is by a noisy, slimy creature (named Adam Colby).

    The TARDIS team come to the rescue but K9’s lost his voice, Leela’s lost some of her hair and the Doctor’s lost his ability to distinguish Jelly Babies from Liquorice Allsorts.

    Luckily, the Tylers (not those Tylers!) are on hand to dispense cake, rock salt and Mummerset premonitions.

    But did Image of the Fendahl give Jim and Martin a burst of primal power or suck out their collective life-force?

    Feeling trapped in your home with limited entertainment and an uncertain world outside?

    Well maybe you can sympathise with the residents of Paradise Towers – a horrible high-rise housing low-rent war machines, an apparently tin Hitler, omnivorous OAPs and TV’s most amateur and least dramatic junior AmDram group.

    The Doctor wants answers, Mel wants a dip and Kroagnon wants a mass eviction order. Familiarly, it’s reds versus blues with the yellows invisible (robot crabs included).

    So did Paradise Towers build Jim and Martin’s happiness high or did they feel unalive by the end of it all?
