Pex Lives: A Doctor Who Podcast
James Murphy and Kevin Burns are both Certified Minor Internet Personalities with a shared love of Doctor Who. Explore the history of the show with them, as they watch classic serials and chat with each other each month about them. Each month, the pair will pick a classic serial to watch and then break down, exploring the themes, characters and production of the given story. There will also be jokes. New episodes on the first Sunday of every month.

Our scheduled guest couldn't make it, and so Seth Aaron Hershman steps into the breach at short notice and gets rewarded for his trouble by an episode that's easier to complain about than praise, and easier still to just fail to have anything to say about at all. How do we do talking about it for an hour? You tell us.

This episode is a tie-in with an essay by Josh, and features the two of us chatting about Species (1995), perhaps the very definition of a movie that is really interesting despite being pretty bad.

City of the Dead: 11 - The House that Dripped Blood

We're back! A quick regeneration for one of us, but City of the Dead has returned from its mouldy tomb.

Seeing stranglers! And dealing with decapitators!
