Episode 73 - Aah, 1989. Nuclear apocalypse never looked so distant after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the screening of the final episode of Doctor Who!
Come back with us as we dig through the printed archives of the enfant terrible of Doctor Who fanzines, DWB, and the more gracious letter pages of Australia's own Sonic Screwdriver!
Laugh along at the antics of Coast to Coast, ponder Donald Sutherland's scarf, hand out pink slips in the Doctor Who Production Office and get deep into the trenches of the hate-fest that was (and indeed remains) the Melbourne-Sydney fan wars of the 80s!
All this plus listen as Mark draws (very) tenuous links to Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Peter Howell and listen to the very end for a slice of DAAS nostalgia who ask if Kyle and Jason may or may not be Freemasons?
