A Quiet Little Genocide (Liberating "The Rescue")

A Quiet Little Genocide (Liberating "The Rescue")

A crashed ship. An innocent girl. And an insectoid alien with its own hidden agenda. Naps. Yep, The Rescue packs a lot into two short episodes, not the least of which is the first "new" companion of the classic series. When William Hartnell's Doctor invites Vicki to join the TARDIS as the ostensible replacement for Susan, it's hard not to draw a parallel with where the Randomizer last took the podcast, since Mawdryn Undead had similar vibes with Turlough succeeding Adric. In this case, though, there's genuine evil afoot as well as some literally eye-popping costumes. Somebody save Pete and Chris before they find too much to talk about. (Too late!)
