2 Brigadiers 2 Furious (Exhuming "Mawdryn Undead")

It has the Brigadier, a mysterious new companion, and a lot to say about regeneration — if Mawdryn Undead is anything, it's first-class fan service that's meant to appeal to longtime fans of Doctor Who. Strange, then, it's episode that long ago sparked one of our host's decades-long journey through time and space, ultimately leading to the podcast you're listening to now. Maybe that's why the randomizer took Pete and Chris here: to look at our own origins, a metaphorical "meeting of ourselves" that shorts out the time differential, leading to a massive burst of creativity and growth. Or maybe it just really likes Turlough. In any case, it's time to set our transmat capsules for 1983 and hope we don't undershoot by six years!
