    "Lots of planets have a north!"

    Yes, the grinning, jug-eared bloke from Northern Gallifrey makes his debut in 2005’s seminal legend-resuscitator, Rose.

    Everyone’s favourite chav, the eponymous Rose Tyler, has a bronze medal in under-7s gymnastics, a boyfriend who goes from annoying to plastic to basket case in 45 minutes and a Mum who all but twerks at passing strangers.

    No wonder she fancies a spot of travel. But first she must deal with plastic non-students, a disembodied arm, an internet weirdo and an angry vat of custard. These things happen when a benevolent alien blows up your job.

    So what do Jim and Martin make of their tentative foray into nascent NuWho? Find out here (just don’t mention the belching wheelie bin).

    "This cannot be how it ends!"

    Well it damn nearly was.

    Yes, it's time to reconsider the 1996 Paul McGann TV Movie, with its gun fights, fist fights, car chases, snogging and schmaltz (no way was this an American production!).

    The Doctor is now only half-Gallifreyan with a naff syrup and an Addams Family interior design sense, while the Master is now part-snake, part-personal lubricant dispenser, with a penchant for "drezzing" up.

    Thank Bod for Amazing Grace with her static tear and innate knowledge of Time Lord temporal mechanics and for Chang Lee's hip high-fiving - keeping us well and truly anchored to the Eighties in this Millennial tale.

    So did Jim and Martin enjoy their Whocation in North America? Or did they yearn for Blighty with its breadline budgets, cramped sets and silly CSO? And what do they think of Peter Capaldi's casting as the 12th Doctor?

    Listen here to find out, y'all!

    "I haven't got no mum and dad. I've never had no mum and dad and I don't want no mum and dad. It's just me, all right?"

    So who's this perishin' apple-cheeked cockernee urchin then? Why, it's Ace! And she joins the show in 1987's Dragonfire, which mercifully closes Season 24.

    It's a frosty fable involving a wobbly-headed ANT, some woeful ice statuary and a frigid frozen food salesman.

    A screamer leaves, a street yoof joins, a permed old rascal returns, and the Doctor reveals that he is in fact not half-human, but half-lemming.

    Who is the little girl (and why)? Does it really take 3,000 years to set up a moderately successful branch of Iceland? And would you buy a fish finger from a homicidal maniac?

    Jim and Martin ponder these questions and more (e.g. "Isn't there something better on another channel?") so join them as they break the ice and chase the dragon...

    "Chop Suey, the Galactic Emperor"

    The elusive Robin Bland serves up this dubious dish, with a hefty helping of hairy kebab meat, in 1976's The Brain of Morbius.

    But it's still a more appetising proposition than the Liquorice Bootlace Surprise at Chez Mehendri, a Bohemian bistro with a red, white and green wine list.

    The latest renegade Time Lord may be half man/half Macra with a goldfish bowl bonce but he's not the only patchwork person around. He's joined by a bearded old crone who's a cross between Chuck Heston and one of his Apes, and a home help who's equal parts Richard III, Liam Gallagher and Abu Hamza.

    Sarah goes blind and the Doctor gets blind drunk but sobers up in time to blind the Sisterhood with chimney sweep science. Then Morbius broadsides us with a colossal non-canon ball - the bombshell that Tom Baker is, in fact, the mystery 12th Doctor.

    It's lively, it's loony and it's lurid so listen in as Jim and Martin bend their minds in an attempt to make sense of it all.

    "It's rather a pity, in a way. Now the universe is down to six hundred and ninety nine wonders."

    The Doctor reacts badly to the news of Girls Aloud splitting up. Luckily, the Krynoid Podcast is here to take his mind off it.

    After giving Cold War, Hide and Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS the once-over, Jim and Martin travel back in time to 1974 for Death to the Daleks - a tale of disarmed Daleks, operatic Exxilons and homicidal hoovers from the City of Dave.

    They play 'Spot the Terry Nation Trope' while also wondering just how terrifying a patch of two-toned flooring can be.

    With an empty Dalek 'standing' about and a blushing high priest channeling Spike Milligan, they ask 'Who is the real goon?'

    And they plead with Carey Blyton to stop using sax as a weapon.

    So why not dive in? Come on, the water's effervescent...

    Well that's the review of Timelash done then.

    Nevertheless, Jim and Martin gently tap themselves into the unrealistic Kontron tunnel of the title to see if they can't discover a gem or two.

    Baker's baubles get harnessed and Peri unleashes her inner damsel in distress, while Avon dons a Dick 3 wig and channels Henry Irving.

    The toga-togged Karfelans are menaced from above by Muppet cobras and from below by overgrown slowworms, little knowing that their dastardly dictator is actually half the man he used to be.

    Can the Doctor free them from this terrifying regime, where beekeepers and body-popping androids are a pain in the neck and where 'Tinsel Inside' is considered the highest mark of quality for time technology?

    Is Timelash as bad as the fan Hive Mind decrees?

    Yes... indeed... it... is...

    So is the Davison two-parter The Awakening "wonderful and strange"?

    Well the sets are certainly wonderful and there are some rather strange goings on in Little Hodcombe.

    There's a bad-wigged nutter with a tinclavic stress ball, a one-eyed beggar with a penchant for ladies' handbags and Ben Wolsey's infamous Reproduction Room, for starters.

    Where does old Big Face keep his body? Would an incredulous guppy make a good companion? And just who is the old fella with the wizened chesticles?

    Listen as Jim and Martin awaken their feeble brain cells and try to answer these questions, while distinguishing set from location, real person from projection and, rather more easily, stroppy air hostess from straw May Queen.

    No. Fret Not. These words are spoken by a giant prawn to a Time Lord, just after exiting his body through his tear duct. Yes, this can only be Tom Baker’s bonkers brain-centric epic, The Invisible Enemy.

    Wherein the Doctor and Leela, in reduced circumstances, wander about inside the Gallifreyan’s brain, hotly pursued by a hairy-eyed Hitler. Signs are spelt orl rong, a certain metal dog makes his debut as a violent virologist and a behemoth of a bottom-feeder gets pushed around on a skateboard, presumably in search of a suitably large barbeque upon which to end his days.

    Now where did I put that Thousand Island dressing…?

    Sadly Jim and Martin don't, and consequently bang on at some  length here about 1967's chilling Troughton tale, The Tomb of the Cybermen.

    It's a four-episode epic involving awful accents, anxious archaeologists and cute and convenient handbag-size hit-mice.

    Gasp as Victoria falls asleep, Jamie falls into a trance and the Doctor nearly falls from grace as he plays impromptu puppet master - handy really as there's a Toberman on strings and an under-stuffed, self-decapitating metal manikin to contend with.

    Our doughty podcasters also find time to reveal the bowel-churning origin of the Cybermats, for whom a damn good flushing is too good.

    Romana goes off seafood, the Doctor loves the sound of breaking glass and Thawn hates just about anyone who isn't Thawn. 

    Green crevices, bushy gates and the imminent threat of dangly-bit exposure must have kept Mary Whitehouse on full alert but did The Power of Kroll float Jim and Martin's canoes?

There's soldiers, gunrunners, androids, a rubbish monster, a revenge-seeking hairy-handed, Peri-infatuated madman and an evil and ruthless bag of slime. Can the Doctor waeve his way through them all and save Peri? Only just... Is it as good as it's reputation suggests? Listen in and find out

    "Harry Sullivan is an imbecile!"

    Harsh words perhaps but the salty surgeon did nearly kill the Doctor... twice.

    Yes, it's the 1975 space opera, Revenge of the Cybermen, in which our intrepid TARDIS team battle a slimy U-Boat commander, an emotional silver giant and a horde of mad blinged-up old women.

    The Doctor's narcoleptic, Harry's apoplectic and Sarah may well go septic so take the slow train with Jim and Martin and see whether all that glitters is gold.

    "Oh shame!"

    Just Brigadier Winifred Bambera's catchphrase or also a two-word review of the 1989 Sylvester McCoy story, Battlefield?

    You decide as Jim and Martin sit huddled in No Man's Land while iffy dialogue, dodgy acting and poor special effects zing past their tortured eyes and ears, only finding solace in their most puerile running gag yet.

    They ponder weighty issues such as the merits of film over video, the mysteries of chemistry, McCoy's anger mismanagement and the messier side of the Brig's descent into senility.

    They say all is fair in love and war but is the KP review fair? Listen and decide...

    You may already have this. If you do, sorry. If you don't... "I always find that violent exercise makes me hungry. Don't you agree?" Yes, Gallifrey's very own silver-haired and rather wrinkly James Bond is at it again in 1972's salty six-part saga, The Sea Devils. Jim and Martin marvel as the Doctor frolics above, on and below the sea, Jo fights, frets and flies a hovercraft and the Master shows off most of his wardrobe (string vests strangely absent). Mr Creosote rolls in from Whitehall and eats everything in his path, Trenchard bores the hind legs off a donkey and Cap'n Hart offs an alarming amount of amphibians. All that with copious sandwiches thrown in. Who could ask for more from Who?

    "Close your eyes and Nero will give you a big surprise!" Yes, Jim and Martin decide whether it's thumbs up or thumbs down for the second season sand & sandals epic, The Romans, featuring a doddery old codger with a lyre (and Maximus Petullian of Corinth). All Roman life is here - lions, gladiators, a shipwrecked galley, a poisoned chalice and a lecherous lunatic of an Emperor. The Doctor plays air lyre, Vicki giggles and Ian and Babs get (possibly) post-coital. Oh well, when in Rome...

It's the Venusian lullaby from The Curse of Peladon of course. In the latest Krynoid Podcast, Jim and Martin take a look at this 1972 Pertwee 4-parter where the third Doctor gets a rare foray off Earth to help a mini-skirted King bring his world out of the dark ages, despite the best efforts of his troublesome High Priest. There are alien creatures galore including the return of the Ice Warriors, the mighty (or not so mighty) Aggedor, a goggle-eyed bogey in a jar... and then there's Alpha Centauri who I can't describe here as it may offend.

In this one we get to see a mad old antler-wearing crone, a giant rubber lizard, a toothless heretic and a pair of galactic conmen attempting to sell a planet to a ranting nobleman. Tom Baker plays it for laughs with varying success and we're introduced to a new assistant - the Doctor's not impressed but your hosts most certainly are! Any good? Well for once there is disagreement, but which one of us is right? Listen in and make your own minds up.

Listen in as we solve the problem of the disappearing Dalek, discuss the (in)competence of a certain mechanical engineer, consider the toilet habits of Rodney Bewes and try to make sense of a convoluted and hole-ridden plot.
