189 – Strange Matter of Time and the Rani

7&7 continues with the very first story of the 7th Doctor’s era. Join Deb, Erika, Lizbeth, and Lynne as we talk about the rocky early days of Sylvester McCoy’s run on the show. As you might expect, there’s also a lot of talk about the Rani, and even some love for Mel. If you’re hoping for an hour of slagging-off this story, kindly try another podcast, because we can’t help you.
