It’s Lynne’s turn to do a hindsight-check. Join Deb, Katrina, and Lynne as they take a look back at the 3rd Doctor story “The Mutants”. (No, not the 1st Doctor story “The Mutants”. We call that “The Daleks”. Deal with it.)

We’re back with another received fan wisdom hindsight check. Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we talk about “The Caves of Androzani” and whether it really belongs at the top of all those fan polls. Is it the greatest Doctor Who story of all time? Or is is “a lot of men being unpleasant in the dark”?
