PJ Hammond is underrated.

Kind of like how certain Doctor Who stories are underrated. Like The Sensorites. Or Carnival of Monsters. Both stories. Both typically rated under stories that they, for whatever reason, outshine. Actually, I just made that up. I have no idea whether The Sensorites and Carnival of Monsters are generally beloved or not. Anyway, it’s Enlightenment, written by Barbara Clegg and aired from March 1st through 9th, 1983


Show-notes:
9:25: Matt Smith was the youngest actor to play the Doctor at the time of his debut.
11:55: I actually found a picture of the chess match in the story, and as it turns out Turlough is playing White and Tegan is playing Black.
18:50: Thankfully Wikipedia has a page explaining what “edutainment” is, and it sounds as corporate as the term itself.
19:33: Bill and Melinda Gates’ divorce is probably going to stay in the news cycle for a while as there are literally billions of dollars and an entire charitable foundation that all need to be sorted out.
20:02: The winner takes it all.
21:48: Poodlegate and that’s all I’ll say on it.
23:43: I couldn’t find any evidence that “doctor” meant “cook” on old ships.
29:51: As promised, our original episode on this was 131: Iron Chef Space.
39:47: I found a whole random little internet forum discussion about the pronunciation of wrath in different countries so that’s neat.
58:08: Time stands still. Thanks, Cambridge Dictionary.
57:54: We talked about Sapphire and Steel at length on our other podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
1:20:: Worry not dear listener, I have a link to the Ballad of the Last Chance Saloon right here.
1:27:27: Yeah we still have this blog thing. Hasn’t been updated in months but oh well.
