This is the one where the Fifth Doctor and Peri meet semi-immortal drug-fiend humans and their pet androids right before the Fifth Doctor regenerates, and not a moment too soon.
Live from Master Closet Studios for the 100th time, you’re listening to the only podcast on the internet whose faces are too hideous for video podcasting: Noobs and the Whovian!
My name is Austin and I’m the Whovian, and these are my sons Corbin and Tripp and we’re the noobs!
And from the St. Louis Annex Offices, we have a special 100th episode guest: Jared!
This is the podcast that introduces a whole new generation to Doctor Who by watching an episode each week and discussing it from the perspective of a dad who’s seen it before, and two sons who haven’t.
Welcome to Episode 100 covering Classic Who Season 21 episodes 17-20: The Caves of Androzani.

Every man dies!
Creature of the week
The Queen Bat
Who is Peri?
Who is the Fifth Doctor?
Overall, what do yall think of him?
He commented on the last time he stopped by Androzani, he’s pretty sure it wasn’t the future!
He tried keeping a diary once. Not in chronological order of course. The problem with time travel is one never seems to find the time.
I never should’ve followed those tracks. Curiosity has always been my downfall.
Your sense of humor will be the death of you. Probably very soon.
Does it hold up?
Bad special effects
