Episode 279 – UNIT Dating Controversy – Solved?

ttv_logo_newIn this week’s show we tackle a subject that has sometimes caused great divides in Doctor Who fandom. A controversy so big, that some have chosen to sideline the debate altogether, just to avoid it. However, some cleaver writing has, perhaps solved the issue for good. We discuss the issue with a special guest, and continuity fix-it-man, Andy Frankham-Allen. He’s an author and the deputy editor of the Lethbridge-Stewart series at Candy Jar Books.

We’ll also review three short stories from Candy Jar, Lethbridge-Stewart: In His Kiss by Sue Hampton, Lethbridge-Stewart: The Black Eggs of Khufu by Tom Dexter, and Lethbridge-Stewart The Enfolded Time by Andy Frankham-Allen

Plus we address the news of the week.

And, of course, feedback.
