Tread Perilously — Doctor Who: The Two Doctors

tp1400-1Tread Perilously celebrates its anniversary month with five weeks of Doctor Who! This week: “The Two Doctors.”

When the Second Doctor is seemingly killed during a time experiment, the Sixth Doctor and Peri track down Jamie McCrimmon on a deserted space station. The path leads them to Seville, where hostile aliens have allied with the Sontarans to learn the secrets of unlimited time travel. Will the Sixth Doctor, Peri, and Jamie arrive to save the Second Doctor in time or will the earlier Doctor become a food-obsessed Androgum?

Justin tries to imagine a “Four Doctors” with Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, and two modern Doctors. Erik recalls the first time he saw “The Two Doctors.” Justin tries to determine if the Sixth Doctor and Peri are the least-regarded Doctor/companion pairing. He also takes another shot at the Fifth Doctor. Once again, Erik and Justin get distracted by Peri’s outfit. They also enjoy the arrival of evil chef Shockeye. Alderaani food comes into the discussion. Erik explains why the Second Doctor’s mission for the Time Lords breaks continuity, but is, nevertheless, a great plot device. He also reminds Justin where he’s seen actor Jacqueline Pearce before. Also, Weng Weng makes an unexpected appearance.
