Doctor Who: Toby Hadoke’s Time Travels
Happy Times and Places 38.5 - The Daleks’ Masterplan 5

Happy Times and Places 38.5 - The Daleks’ Masterplan 5

July 6, 2022

Yay! More moving pictures. Boo! No delegates. But we *do* have Karlton with his baldy head and jug ears and gorgeous voice, as well as a bunch of actors host Toby Hadoke have sadly never tracked down for interview... the mice! Yet more thespian memories we will never get to hear. But there's plenty to see in this episode - except for the denizens of the planet Mira, because they are the invisible Visions. Oh it is all go - what could guest Ian K McLachlan (fan from the days of yore) possibly choose as his favourite thing in this episode?

Host Toby Hadoke actually forgets the title of this episode in his introduction but when he does remember it boy does it come in helpful - as it's a title which could apply to several different people depending on your outlook. It is also special guest Ian K McLachlan's favourite episode of Doctor Who EVER : and he has seem them all except for Marco Polo episode 7. So no pressure then. He obviously likes death, as there's a lot of that here: and quite shocking it is too. So sit back , relax and press play but, no ... not that button...!

Happy Times and Places 28.3 - The Daleks’ Masterplan 3

July 1, 2022

Recorded in the aftermath of Eve of the Daleks this is an episode set in a dangerous environment which has the Daleks in pursuit of our intrepid heroes. There's not much to see but there are tantalising photographs and Ian K McLachlan was there at the time so doubtless has some fascinating insights. It's grim stuff this adventure - and quite an eye opener for those unfamiliar with the harsher side of 60s Who. 

Don't write in about what Toby observes about Zephon until he does his clarification at the end!!! And then don't write in :)

Oooh, this episode exists! Hooray. Host Toby Hadoke remembers when it didn't, so it still all seems a bit new to him. And what a gorgeous episode it is, with its superb aliens and its even more superb human villain, Mavis Chen. Make sure you've worked out your special hand movements as Toby sits down with long term fan Ian McLachlan and see if there's a bigger candidate for Silliest Sod in the Universe than stroppy alien Zephon, marvel and the odd delivery of Katarina, and fall in love with Nicholas Courtney all over again.

Strap yourselves in - it's the start of an epic, largely missing Doctor Who story. We have 12 instalments of this, and being perfectly honest with you, host Toby Hadoke was worried this would be a bit of a chore. Yet thanks to the events of this mammoth tale, and the brilliant perspective provided by guest Ian K McLachlan, one of the fans who was there at the very beginning, this has proved to be one of the most popular commentaries in the series if feedback from patrons is anything to go by.

Well this is an epic. Strap on your eyepatches as Doctor Who TV movie actor Jeremy Radick chooses, from an alternative universe, his favourite things about this classic tale. How close will he and host Toby Hadoke be in their choices - will they run parallel? Or will the whole thing turn out to be one massive bore?

Indefinable Magic 16 - You’ve Maddened It…

June 20, 2022

We can be an angry bunch, we Doctor Who fans. What is it about the unifying joy of a silly old show about fun and adventure that can cause so many scarlet faces and unpleasant outbursts? It seems odd that a show about a benign and kindly alien can cause such vitriol amongst its admirers. or is that seething anger within us all, and the programme just a healthy outlet for it. Host Toby Hadoke proffers some opinions - but don't be cross if they're not the same as yours!

Your host Toby Hadoke is very tired on this one, so he barely has the energy for a Highland fling. Hopefully he makes up for his lack of energy in the post-commentary coda. And fortunately, brilliant guest Michael Dennis (who wrote for Mark Gatiss' excellent Queers anthology of monologues) is on hand to be far more interesting, eloquent and, well, awake than Toby is. Hopefully those of you less familiar with this story come away with a newfound appreciation for it after this. And that one of you has it in your attic.

It's funny doing these with the old telesnaps. Bit of a challenge. But fortunately we have an excellent guest in the form of writer and Man of the Theatre Michael Dennis, and the script and production of The Macra Terror throw up plenty of things to talk about. So hopefully host Toby Hadoke will be able to claw some enjoyment from this...

"There is no such thing as Happy Times and Place 37.2" etc.

Of course there is. And this is it. a rewarding look at an under appreciated story with special guest Michael Dennis, who has worked extensively in theatre as a company manager and is an excellent writer too. But will host Toby Hadoke manage to stay in control...?
