"A tear, Sarah Jane? No, don't cry. While there's life, there's..."
-- The Third Doctor to Sarah Jane Smith, Doctor Who: "Planet of the Spiders"
It was another battle to record, but my partner in time Jesse Jackson and I are back with a new episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! In this episode, Jesse and I review "Planet of the Spiders", the fifth serial of Season 11 from the original series of Doctor Who in 1974, starring Jon Pertwee in his final story as the Third Doctor, Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith, Nicholas Courtney as Brigadier Alastair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, Richard Franklin as Mike Yates, and John Levene as Sergeant Benton!
This time, Jesse and I discuss things like the big announcement of Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor, me revealing the news to Jesse, our thoughts and hopes for Jodie Whittaker as the first woman to portray the Doctor in the series, Doctor Who fandom already being split on the announcement, owning up to getting our Thirteenth Doctor picks wrong, why it's okay if we have to wait until fall of 2018 for Series Eleven, the Third Doctor's Venusian Aikido, Eastern philosophy being introduced to the series, shipping Sarah Jane and Mike Yates, Jo Grant returning her Metebelis 3 crystal, seeing the inside of the Third Doctor's TARDIS, wondering what specific fear the Third Doctor was trying to face, Cho-Je as the future incarnation of the K'anpo Rimpoche, Superman as the Last Son of Krypton, Sarah Jane befriending Tommy, the Brigadier finally getting to see a regeneration, the new K'anpo teasing the Fourth Doctor's persona, why the Metebelis 3 spiders need to return in the modern era, TV fighting in the '60s and '70s, the Doctor hanging out with the Brigadier socially, my plan to lead up to Peter Capaldi's regeneration into Jodie Whittaker, Jesse's Reverse the Reverse the Polarity, feedback from David K. Proctor and Paul from Australia, my Ghostwood: The Twin Peaks Podcast kicking butt, teasing the Master Trilogy, and more!
