Mile-High Flub (Piloting “Time-Flight,” with guest Christopher Burgess)

When you hear “a Doctor Who story set in the Jurassic period,” the picture you conjure in your head probably looks quite a bit different from Time-Flight. That’s not necessarily a strike against it: The finale of Season 19 is notorious for being light on budget, so it’s probably a blessing that they didn’t even try to show a single allosaurus stomping around the barren plains of prehistoric London. Instead we get the Xeraphin, a telepathic race of morally conflicted humanoids that are almost interesting — at least until the Master uses them as the winner-take-all prize in his technobabble rap battle with the Doctor. Plus: A time-travel mystery! Cringey disguises! Not one, but TWO Concordes! That more than makes up for some absent dinosaurs, doesn’t it? Doesn’t it?

Special guest Christopher Burgess (@dubbayoo) from Radio Free Skaro joins!
