This week we are joined by Drew Stewart, TOS editor for Trek.FM as we discuss Doctor Who season one, episode eleven, “Boom Town.”
Like a bad penny, Margaret Blaine the Slitheen turns up again, this time as the mayor of Cardiff. Up to her old tricks, she plans on building an unsafe nuclear power station right on the rift. When it ultimately melts down, the Earth will finally be destroyed and her family will be avenged.
Meanwhile, a strange love triangle– or is it a square?– is forming between Rose, Mickey, and her time travelling companions. Can they put their hormones on a shelf for long enough to once again save the Earth from destruction?
I’m not always mayor of Cardiff, but when I am I use a Deus Equis Machine.
