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.

This week we are joined by special guests Ben Rollman and Grace Hebert as we discuss Doctor Who season 1, Episode 4, “Aliens of London.”

The Doctor takes Rose back to the projects to visit her mum and the sky starts falling. Politicians are generally full of hot air but the ones we meet this week take it too a new level. Visitors to Number 10 Downing Street are advised not to smoke or have any open flames.

Please don’t fart while The Doctor tries to save the world because He Who Smelt It, Dealt It.
